Do I need a modem to use R7000 with NBN?

Hey, I'm really struggling here

I've had a bunch of people tell me that I only need a router as NBN is a digital signal.
My R7000 is not detecting anything in the 'internet' port - it says no ethernet cable is plugged in.
I have the latest firmware V1.0.7.2
It is an FTTB connection in an apartment building and I'm running a brand new CAT-6 ethernet cable straight from the wall in to the router.

Is this my fault, do I just need to get a modem?
