Hey all,


So I recently purchase a new Fletcher Living home and I'm scratching my head on how to get my data ports working throughout the house.


I've got the yellow cable running to my R8500 and the WiFi & Internet access is working great.


However when I plug any PC into the data cables referenced nothing happens (even if I plug the cables in the Data Module into the Router, or directly into the ONT.


Would appreciate any thoughts :)

cable from the lan ports on the router to the 7 ports on the bottom of the black boxes. The top one is for making ports into voice ports so basically totally useless these days.

Hi, how is your ONT mounted in the cabinet? It looks really neat - better than my cable ties!
