I have just got a fibre internet and home line account from slingshot , they turned off my copper cable for phone so it runs through there  router,  i have been provided a netcomm router from them which does not have enough wifi range for me. the netcomm router has the home phone pluged into it.




I want to use my Asus dslac68u router for wifi but it doesn't seem to support the landline 




Do you know what the best option is to get my land line to work? can i Bridge the two routers together?




cheers Brendan

unless you know all the slingshot settings to put into the asus for the home line youe best bet would be to use the slignshot router for the home line and use the asus for everything else

The new router doesn't support VoIP so you have to way to use this without relying on the Netcomm for VoIP.The Asus was probably a waste of money for your requirements - a standalone access point for well under half the price that would have plugged into the Netcomm would have been your best solution.


You do however have two solutions - congfure the Asus as your primary router and have the Netcomm reconfigured for DHCP behind this just for VoIP (should work but no guarantees and may require configuration), or use the Netcomm as your primary router still and disable all of the features in the Asus and use it as a dumb access point.
