BYO Router

I have cable internet through Optus and was provided a netgear modem and sagecom router. I have been having connection issues with my Xbox through a wired connection which means multiple resets of router/system each day. Is it possible to connect another router for Optus cable?

Re: BYO Router

You'll need the modem from the wall. But you can plug most other routers in instead of the Optus one. Just needs to have a WAN port.)


Note that when the NBN arrives you can still do this however you must have the Optus modem in the mix if you want to have land line calls. However there are optiuons to get around that too.
