What is this little white box with the words ETP next to the Chorus white UFB box inside the house?  This little box has a RJ45 outlet.  

 

 

 

Just helping out some that have moved houses.  We don't have this ETP thing at our place.  They are also waiting for a the white box power cord - the previous house owner took it away.  

 

 

 

Edit - is for VOIP so the other phone jacks in the house will ring?

 

 

 

Thanks.

It is usually so you can feed a voice signal back into the existing house wiring so all the phone jacks works. Depending on which RSP you are connected to, you connect that jack to either the voice port on the ONT, or the voice port on your router (or ATA).

Ok, thanks for that. For our one there is a normal telephone jack which they redid the wiring to feed it.  

 

 

 

They are with My Republic.  They have a TP Link C2 which doesn't have a voice port.  Just 4x LAN ports and the Internet port. Will figure this out by trial and error.

MyRepublic uses the ONT to provide voice service. Plug that socket into the ONT POTS1 port.

I hear a lot of stories about the power cable going missing for the ONT when people move. Perhaps these providers should have better stickers on their gear....but I betcha its people thinking that "hey Im moving and if I take my power cord, I can be sure that someone will come to replace it and reset the ONT so my details are not on it". (but thats not how it works in reality.... there is no personal data on them).

I'm starting to wonder whether an ONT power cable is the most frequently-stolen item in the country tongue-out
