I'm not an expert, so sorry if my langage is not always adapted (moreover, english is not my native speaking...)
I had before a Netgear N600WNDR3700v2 (v3.0-r40559 std 08/06/19 :
- it was connected directly to my fiber optic box
- with a pppoe configuration and vlan tagging : VLAN 0 Interface / eth0 / Tag number 35 / Prior 0
- with mac adress cloned
- the ethernet cable from the fiber optic box was connected to my router on a LAN port (it was not working on the WAN port). Notice that when I had my ISP's modem, I also had to connect it to a LAN port
- I had a good internet connexion, the WAN IP was well attributed
- there wasn't a tab "Switch config" under Setup of my router
I have changed for a Netgear R9000 :
- I made the exact same configuration
- but on the R9000, I have this tab "Switch config" : cf attachment
- the internet connexion is not made, there no WAN IP attributed
- so I presume that I have to do something under Switch config...?
- but I don't what nor how
Can you help please
Here's what I was able to get via SSH of my actual configuration :
- Switch config :
- VLAN 1 : 1,2,3,4,5,,6 / assigned to bridge : none
- VLAN 2 : 5
- Networking :
- Tagging Clan 0 interface : eth0, tag number 35, prio 0
- Port Setup : WAN Port Assignment : eth0

I pray you can get it working... VLAN's on the R9000 are very tricky because there are two switches on this router and not one switch like on the R7800 and like on your older router... This makes tagging a VLAN for PPPOE very hard.
Try here first start reading from user "ibreakit" post. You'll need to scroll up a little.
How do you want us to help you Pierrot? It's a big pity you have disappeared from here. I am browsing the brand you have mentioned in your post. I guess you were talking about the Wi-Fi router, am I right? As I see, Netgear R9000 is a very reliable wireless router. But it's difficult for me to specify your main issue. I know how to reset it to default settings, that's all... But certainly, there are places where you can fix your problems. If I have any similar occasions, I usually apply to this fiber optic engineering company. It seems no unsolved problems exist for them!
