I’m looking for some advice on setting up my new Omnia 2020
I bought it to replace an ageing Zyxell that came from my ISP here in the UK.
Unfortunately I didn’t do my research properly (was too excited by the wonderful hardware to fully check) and I can’t connect the Omnia up to my DLS RJ45 connection.
I purchased one of these : https://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B078V1G3KG/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o05_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1
in the hope that it would magically work (based on something I read, which I’ve been unable to find again where the omnia detected an SFP and configured itself). This did not seem to happen.
Clearly I’m slightly out of my depth. I’m comfortable in linux and can set up a network with a bit of luck and a lot of google.
So, my question. What is the best way for me to utilise my omnia here in the UK with my DSL line? I’ve been unable to find much on-line. Can I get an SFP unit or should I place something between the omnia and the DLS line?
Bonus points for pointing me to excellent openWRT information as I’m intending to level up on all this.
