Level 2: Rookie


My adsl2 router/modem has died. NBN is supposed to come to my address in June.  Is there something I can get that will do both ADSL2 and be NBN ready?

Was this helpful?

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

Hi ShannonD
I purchased the Gen 2 yesterday but am still having issues! Waiting on a technician. Hopefully up and running by tomorrow. The really good thing with the Gen 2, it has switched to mobile mode so we have access.
Thanks for the reply.
