So, I have bneen on HFC with Telstra NBN for the last 2 years or so. My network setup is NBN "NTD" ---- Telstra Smart Modem ---- Netgear R700 (DHCP is ON) So, from what I understand, I shouldnt actually need the Telsta Modem in this loop, however if I disconnect it from the chain I get no internet. Would I be right in assuming that this is just handling the connection to telstra, and not specifically the HFC network? I am planning on churning to Aussie BB again on HFC. Will I need a new box in the middle, or will the NTD connect dirrectly to my netgear router?
