@BasilDV . This model has a RJ11 DSL port but no mention is made that it can be used on FTTB/FTTN. The manual says the DSL port can handle PTM/VDSL2.

In this article (and I think in all of them), the sequence for FTTP and FTTC is the same, yet FTTP does not use VLAN ID and FTTC does. The point of these articles is to provide info to users of BYO routers so they can get themselves connected. But you're leaving out an important bit of the config (for non-FTTP).

I noticed this facility on iiNet recently.

Hi @david64

 

Thanks for pointing this out in regards the configuration for NBN FTTB/N technology. We'll check on this further and update the article once confirmed.

 

The configuration of the NBN BYO modem/router plan is different compared to the existing or first NBN plan where we provide a free modem/router.

In this new plan, you don't need to set a VLAN ID on both FTTC and HFC service.

 

Please note that the new NBN plan that we offer is Data only.

@BasilDV . Thanks for the info. I see the NBN plans web page has been updated.

Is that in response to the number of people wanting to use their own router?

Hi @david64

 

We can confirm that it can be configured for the NBN FTTN/B service.

 

The article will be updated.

 

Cheers!
