Hi @jkingham,

 

Welcome to the Community!

 

You might want to visit this link: https://community.tpg.com.au/t5/Broadband-Internet/Alternate-router-to-use-on-HFC/m-p/863#M2149

 

We have customers who were successful in using their own equipments with the NBN HFC technology. Please bear in mind that the homephone service will only work with a TPG-supplied modem.

Hi Thanks for that, the router I'm been lookng at the Asus RT-AC3100 

https://www.asus.com/au/Networking/DSL-AC3100/  

Will that be ok to use with HFC ? I really don't want all the hassle of having to return it if it can't be set up with TPG. I did try to set up a Asus AC68U but that was not compatable.

Thanks in advance JK

Hi @jkingham,

 

We haven't had the chance to assist a customer with an Asus DSL-AC3100 modem so we can't confirm if this will work with the HFC technology or not. There's no specific details as well shown on the ASUS' website as to the modem's compatibility with NBN HFC.

 

We suggest that you contact ASUS first and confirm it with them before purchasing the equipment.

 

Regards,
