I've had my 1GB services installed last week and I've been trying to figure out the best set-up to use. I haven't had a chance to try the phone line yet because I am still waiting for a phone/adapter to be delivered, but I have some question on how I am going to set the phone up.
I've bought a NETGEAR X6 (Amazon) to allow me to get max speed out of my Wifi. However, I'm still trying to figure out how the phone is going to connect to all of this.
One set-up I tried was connecting the Hyperoptic to the socket on the wall, and then connecting my NETGEAR to the Hyperoptic via LAN and connecting all of my devices to my NETGEAR. For some reason, both cabled and wifi speed that I was getting in my NETGEAR router in this set-up were being pretty rubbish. I believe in this set-up, I can connect the phone to the Hyperoptic router and it should work just fine.
The set-up that I am using right now is: Connecting my NETGEAR to the wall socket straight. In this set-up, I am getting much faster speeds out of my NETGEAR router. I am hoping that I can take a LAN cable and connect my Hyperoptic router as a secondary device to my NETGEAR. Will I be able to then connect the phone to the Hyperoptic router and get signal?
Does anyone have any experience with this?
Otherwise, is there a better way of using a phone with a NETGEAR router rather than having to do it via the Hyperoptic router? Maybe an adapter of some sort?
Any help would be much appreciated!
