Hi All,

Have just signed up for a 30/10 fibre plan with VF (vodafone) and am having the fibre connected on the 7th.

Currently use an Asus DSL-N55U (Can't post links yet so imagine there is one here to manufacturers website :)) with my ADSL2+ connection.

Have updated the firmware to the latest version which provides the capability to use one of the four ethernet ports as a wan port. 

To my knowledge, chorus install an ONT to the inside of my house, which is what connects to the VF provided 'station' which I would rather not use (purely as I spent a small fortune on the current one and wasted many long hours getting it just how I want, setup-wise).
The ONT seems to connect directly into the WAN port on the VF router via ethernet. 

This has got me thinking, that despite the moron salesman asserting that I have to use their router, that i would be just as successful connecting the ONT to my router, and manually entering the connection details if required.

So, two questions:

     

  1. Has anyone had this sort of setup working before on a wan-capable router like the one I own.
  2. If so, did it require a lot of messing around to configure the settings to have the router connect.
Thanks,

Dan

If it supports VLAN tagging on the WAN interface it should work.

edit: my mistake, was thinking the N66U, thus the confusion with it being the same as the following instance. http://www.geekzone.co.nz/forums.asp?forumid=39&topicid=143748


as sbiddle pointed out, just ensure it can vlan tag.
