About to pull the trigger on Telstra NBN (our area went live yesterday)

 

Have an existing ORBI RBR50 network (3 satellites) that gives entire property WiFi coverage my questions are

 

1 What modem does the current NBN plan come with on fiber to node ... Gen 1 or Gen 2 ?

 

2 Can I use this modem with the 4G backup with my current Orbi system


3 What settings need to be changed to make it work

thanks in advanced

All new Telstra NBN connections are supplied with the Gen 2 modem.

 

If you are in a area with 4G reception the 4G backup will work.

 

Set up ORBI as access point

Don't do it if you need service in a timely manner. 

 

I have been waiting 19 days for mine to be on only after a house move. Totally bad service from Telstra. Nobody can fix it for me after numerous messages and calls. Everybody is nice but can't do anything about it. Good luck with it.

Plug in and connect in minutes. Smart.
