I would like to findout if it is possible to replace the Optus NBN broadband modem router (Sagemcom 5366tn) with a third party modem router. Basically, I have an existing Dlink DSL-2888A modem router which is capable of doing VDSL. So if I attempt to do the replacement, all I need is it just the username & password to login, right? or there are more details to be configured or setup? I understand I won't be able to use my phone anymore but don't really mind.
Thank you for all your help & support.
FTTN. No, I do not have a small NBN router that the Optus modem plus into.
The Sagemcom 5366tn is the supplied Optus modem router (all in one), I cannot just remove it and connect my own modem router. Also this Sagemcom 5366 cannot be configured in bridge mode.
Is there any recommended third party modem that can be used with Optus NBN (FTTN)?
For FTTN you don't need a username and password but if the configuration is not done correctly you can actually cause the line to get blocked, and that requires contacting Optus to get it unblocked.
See this thread for a possible solution, but make sure you read the entire thread before making any changes.
