Replacing router

Hey, I recently bought a new router, ASUS AX82U and the wan port is rj45 but the wall socket is a 631A, I did notice that only 2 of the 8 cables are connected to the socket, how can I connect my new router? Can I buy a rj45 wall socket and rewire it? I tried using an adapter but it does not work.

Re: Replacing router

That router does not have an integrated modem. You will need to pair it with an xDSL modem in order for it to work.

You will need a modem with that router, it does not have one built in, which is why it has the RJ45 connecter.

You should be able to pick up a Huawei HG612 for relatively cheap on eBay.

Or if you are able to send it back, see if they will swap it for the DSL version - other vendors are available!

Re: Replacing router

Cheers guys, went and replaced for the DSL model, I rushed into buying without even double checking if it had DSL, got the DSL version and it's great, easy and fast setup Smiley
