I have a Netcomm NF18ACV ADSL/VDSL TP modem/router supplied by Trustpower. I no longer use the modem as I no longer use Trustpower and the house I am in has broadband already.  TP say I can keep it.The modem is a standard Netcomm model but has TP on the end of the part number - which I assume is for "Trustpower".  Is it just a standard Netcomm modem or will there be code in firmware meaning it will only communicate with Trustpower?

Should do the trick but that modem is known to not be that good.

Should be a lot better than the NF15ACV.

 

 

It might phone home to Trustpower for updates but I doubt it will do anything extreme. You might want to turn off its TR-069/CWMP capability while using it on another ISP.

Thanks.  It's the worst modem I have ever used and Trustpower the worst ISP.

NF18ACV is a great device

 

NF15ACV was dodgy (totally different chipset)
