Hi there,

I have several questions regarding the setup of Xnet Fusion.

I am from Malaysia, and I am currently studying in NZ. So thing is, I have a spare modem which I intend to bring over and I was wondering if it is compatible and suitable to be used in NZ for Xnet. It is an ADSL2+ modem, Billion BiPAC 5112S. The standard telephone cable used in Malaysia is RJ11 and it plugs in to this particular modem. From previous searching in this forum, I understand that there are several kinds of RJ11 and some mentioned about a BT socket being used in NZ? Could someone clarify more on this?

Secondly, if the particular modem is suitable, then my setup would include a Belkin F5D8230-4 wireless router. What else would I require to set up the Voip part? I have only one standard phone which I intend to use with xnet fusion and I understand I would need an ATA device. Would this be plugged into one of the available ports on the wireless router? Which ATA device is recommended for the simplest setup of one standard telephone?

I hope my questions are not too confusing to be understood, and any feedback would be greatly appreciated!

Not 100% sure on ifg your router will be compatabile with the NZ DSL services as they me be slightly different in settings / firmware / hardware i.e customised for the Malaysian Telco environment , so there could possibly be some issues, but best bet would be to try it and see and my best guess is that it will probably be okay.

The BT jack is the NZ standard residential phone jack and socket, getting a cable is very easy and cheap you can get one for a couplod bucks at any local electronics store.

For you if you have a router alreday the best bet is the Linksys PAP2T or SPA2102 roughly $80 -$120 these will just plug into your switch port on your router.

Hope this answered your questions.
