The Netgear Orbi can be connected directly to UNI-D port on the FTTP connection box

Re: Compatibility of Netgear Orbi with NBN

Thx for reply. Currently our phone line plugs into a Telstra Gateway ( Netgear ) v7610. Would our phone still work? Is it possible to drop the landline from our plan? Telstra keeps telling us we have to have it.

Re: Compatibility of Netgear Orbi with NBN

Telstra only supplies NBN combined phone an internet connections. There are no phone only plans so whether you use the phone or don't use it you will pay the same price for the connection. In most cases the phone should still work if you plug the WAN port of the Telstra Gateway into a network port of one of the Orbi units.

 

When setting up Orbi set up for Internet connection without login. (Page 25 of manual)

IP Address get dynamically from ISP

DNS Get automatically from ISP or enter a custom DNS (Example Google public DNS 8.8.8.8, 8.8.4.4)

Use Default MAC address.
