Phones well away from ROuter and Router in Modem Mode !!
Two issues with the Fibre Phone switch proposals for me - what are the / are there any workarounds,
(a) I have my phone at the opposite end of the house on a different floor from the router so can't plug it in without substantial wiring. (Unless I use my network - see below)
(b) I have my router in Modem Mode (phone wont connnect this way) as I have fully managed Router, Firewall, Switches and Mesh WiFi of my own as the Virgin Router doesn't give me enough flexibility / management. Can I configure my network to take / route the phone connection?
Are Virgin saying these are no - no's and potentially saying they don't want my business ??
Re: Phones well away from ROuter and Router in Modem Mode !!
Thanks for your reply.
Is this a fact ? I did read somewhere in the forum / tech pages that phones connected in Mode mode wouldn't work - though can't see why not since RJ45's and RJ11's appear to be separated at the rear of the router and hence 'probably' segragated inside.
But if the phone section relies on routing that is only functional in Router mode then I'm stuffed !!
