Gee what a gadget pretty cool from what I see, anyway why don't you try it out just plug in the cables and see if your DSL light is solid, if it is then you can toy with your authentication etc for xtra.

It claims to be compatible with adsl etc, what TCNZ is saying may be they do not support it as their help desk can't support it as they only support dlink over the phone.

Settings PPPoA VC MUX, VCI=100, VPI=0, and password. It should then work.

Spark FibreMAX using Mikrotik CCR1009-8G-1S-1S+. UAP, UAP AC Pro, UAP AC Pro Mesh, Apple TV 4, Apple TV 4K, iPad Air 1, iPhone XR, VodaTV Gen 2. If it doesn't move then it's data cabled.

I dragged my 5GT ADSL box all the way to the UK and it worked straight away :)

I think ADSL is pretty much universal, as long as you use the right ANNEX type.
