I am with contact energy fibre in Auckland. I see that the Vocus list of ISPs doesn't mention contact. However I have seen the name Vocus in my settings.


I updated to a generic firmware for my NF18ACV router. I didn't realise this was a bad idea. I was able to get the internet working afterwards, but not my home phone.


This is the firmware I updated to.




What's my next move? I either need to confirm that contact is Vocus, and update the firmware, or get the SIP settings to make my home phone work.

Call Contact and ask for the current firmware file. As with a lot of questions on here the first step is to contact your ISP.


Contact is not part of Vocus but it is likely they are using the same firmware

Thanks. Yes, I have requested help from contact, but I am waiting for a phone call in that regard.
