Re: Sagemcom 5366TN release

This is the beauty of the NBN, surely.  A single provider of the underlying infrastructure and many, many choices as to your biller/modem provider.  In the past with cable you were lucky to have a choice between Telstra and Optus, often it was one or the other.

Now with NBN go wherever you want, whenever you want.  Unless of course you sign up for a long term contract in order to get a free/cheap modem and then to be honest that's your choice, nobody made you do it!

It does not have a bridge mode.

Only FTTN & FTTB require a router with a modem. What type of NBN do you have?

In that case the only things you can play with are disabling NAT & DHCP and/or putting your gaming router in the DMZ. Note that messing with any of those will/may loose:

  • Wifi access on the 5366 (which you would expect if you are trying to replicate bride mode)
  • Access to Optus land line (you may not expect to loose)

Re: New Optus supplied modem - Sagemcom 5366TN

I read this morning that Optus has added a new "Ultra WiFi" NBN modem to their lineup with 4G backup.  Anyone planning to get their 5366TN replaced with this?

"nbn plus an Ultra WiFi Modem with 4G backup."

Not for $200 (or whatever it will cost) - if a free replacement, why not test it out. But no way I will willingly pay that much for an Optus brick.
