Telstra Smart Wifi Booster compatible with other routers?

I recently purchased a Telstra Smart WiFi Booster on the assumption I would be using Telstra for the NBN.  It now seems Telstra can’t fulfil my NBN order made in April and I want to sign up with a new provider. I understand the VOIP function of the Telstra Smart Modem is locked to the Telstra network, so will have to purchase a new modem. Will the WiFi booster work with another modem or is it useless on any other network/router?

Was this helpful?

  • Yes it was, thank you
  • No, I still need help

The Telstra Smart WiFi booster can connect to other modem / routers by LAN cable and act as a WiFi access point but it can only connect by WiFi to the Telstra Gen 1.1 and Gen 2 Smart modem. So the Telstra Smart WiFi booster can be used with other modem / routers as an access point but not as a WiFi repeater.
