Should my fibre install look like this ? :) Im suspecting that the round thing is meant to be hooked to the house ? Had some extreme winds here overnight and this morning, so suspect its just been blown off...... happy to go hook it back on myself if someone can confirm :)

Dialup? Sorry we don't support that. Nor do bigpipe or skinny.

Maybe @NickMack can setup you there

(I have a USR Courier, Zyxel 19k2 and a USR Sportster at home) - We haven't supported dialup for a few years, I believe We used to punt it over Ip from Telstra/clear/Vodafone.

@hio77 what are you thinking? You know your company policy is to push 4G, not unreliable copper!




Chorus has spent $1.4 billion on making their xDSL broadband network faster and even more now as they are upgrading their rural Conklins. If your still stuck on ADSL or VDSL, why not spend $195 on a master filter install to make sure you are getting the most out of your connection?
I install - Naked DSL, DSL Master Splitters, VoIP, data cabling and general computer support for home and small business.
