Thinking of purchasing this new MU MIMO wifi router from noel leeming


It is compatible with spark fibre which is what I have. Also have a home phone. The manual notes Vlan tagging


But there is 3 options - Internet VLAN ID - IPTV VLAN ID - VOIP VLAN ID


The spark website notes Vlan 10 but is that just for the internet? What VLAN ID would I enter for the VOIP as I have a home phone too?


I currently use the hg659b.

sparks VOIP over fibre is provided via the ONT (optical network terminal) so there is nothing to set in the router

Your voice will currently be supplied via the ONT.




this will not change based on RGW you use.


All you need to do is the VLAN 10 PPPoE connection and you will be away.

@timw1lliams If I would make a suggestion then don't purchase this. It is an absolute waste of money. You can pick up a far better solution from either Ubiquiti or Grandstream that'll work better, have more features and likely be cheaper.
