I've been thinking of getting a dual band router to replace my current Sagecom 3864. I saw this method ( https://yescrowd.optus.com.au/t5/NBN/BYO-Router-with-Optus-NBN-VoIP/ta-p/140974?_ga=1.194154221.1941...) suggested to others who wanted to use their own router. I just wanted to confirm that this method still works, since the last post referencing it is just over a year old now.
Solved! Solved: Go to Solution.
This one is a little more recent and posted by Optus so I'd say yes you can - https://yescrowd.optus.com.au/t5/NBN/Can-I-use-my-BYO-MODEM-on-the-NBN/ta-p/202224/jump-to/first-unr...
Just remember Optus won't supply you with the necessary VoIP settings/info to set up VoIP in a third party router so you'll still need to plug in the Optus supplied modem and then plug your third party router into that.
Is Anyone aware if there is a way to achieve this with FTTN?
I have have a D-Link 5300 Cobra which I have connected to the phone line.
I have then connected the FAST 3864 into the D-Link LAN port via the FAST 3864 Internet port.
My digital phone is then plugged into the FAST 3864 phone line port
This doesn't seem to be working though.
Does anyone know how or even if this is possible with FTTN? Unforuntately I can't just use the FAST 3864 on its own as its WiFi speeds aren't sufficient for what I need.
Hey @jezstinger - i'm afraid you're unable to use VOIP on our service with a BYO modem, which would be why you're unable to connect. Sorry about that.
