Telstra Smart Modem Gen 2

Answered

My question is about Telstra Smart Modem Gen 2 just released.   cf4 supplied an answer about connecting an ASUS RT-AC88U router.  Can I use this Gen 2 modem as a bridge, connect my ASUS router (which will allow me to use Nord VPN) and still use VOIP phone.  I will be getting HFC shortly.   Having 4G back up is not a priority for me but VPN is.

Re: Telstra Smart Modem Gen 2

My previous post on how to connect ASUS router (which will allow me to use Nord VPN) and still use VOIP phoneapplies to the Smart Modem Gen 2 as the Smart modem Gen 2 features are almost identical to the Smart Modem. Only Its physical size and position of lights and ports are different.

 

The major feature difference between two modems is that on GEN 2 VOIP still works when modem using 4G backup when main link not available.
