    Thumbs up Can we use ftth with a router ?

    Hello everyone,

    i recently bought a new router from netgear http://www.ntgr.co.in/home/products/...ers/R8000.aspx
    and i also recently got a new ftth connection from bsnl, my question is can i surf internet with this router only without having a modem, can we configure ftth directly on this router ? or for ftth also we need a modem.

    FTTH means you have on optical cable from BSNL. This cannot be connected directly to the router! BSNL must have supplied you with an FTTH customer premises device. You need to take a LAN cable from this device to the router!


    Cheers!

    No need for modem. Router will do! Just connect the LAN cable from the FTTH box to the WAN port of your router. Modem is used for ADSL connections, not for FTTH.

    We use BSNL FTTH in our office. The FTTH compatible modem has been provided by BSNL. Thereafter its normal router switching only. The LAN cable from the FTTH modem should be connected to the WAN port of the router. Make sure you use a Cat 6 cable to get maximum benefit.

    this is one of those very rare threads here, where the OP follows up to the latest posts in the thread and writes more than once. :P
