I have a customer who is moving to NBN in a few months and I thought I would start to look at the config changes now when there is no time pressure.
I assume I will have 2 options:
Change the router to have a NBN compatible interface. (fibre to the node in my town where I live) If I go the replacement router option then I assume it will still just be a dialer interface of some sort connecting to the current NBN line. But I have not done this setup before and unsure on the Cisco hardware and configuration. Has anyone done this yet and if so could they give me some heads up on the equipment they used.
Simply let Telstra install the NBN router. If I go the new NBN router, I can then connect a cable from the FastEthernet port on the NBN router to to an Ethernet or FastEthernet port on the Cisco and not use the ADSL port.
Unless someone has done option 1 before I am favouring option 2 and just moving my crypto tunnel endpoint to the ethernet port instead of the dialer interface and having a NBN router in front of the Cisco 827.
Apologies for this not being a configuration question yet as I need to understand the best approach before making config changes.
