I wanted to use the AXT1800 as a standalone modem/router. It seems I have to use the ISP provided modem/router to connect to the internet though.
Can I just directly connect the AXT1800 to the ONT ethernet?
Would I put the ethernet jack into LAN 1 or WAN if I can?
Any help would be nice
You should connect an Internet cable to the WAN port of the AXT1800. If your carrier has no restrictions, it should work as an ISP router to access the Internet.
Incidentally, if you don’t know much about networking, we recommend trying our App, which has a more detailed guide.
Hello and thank you for the information.
Would I connect the ethernet from the ONT to the WAN port if I can use it as a ISP router?
It can be used as an ISP router. But you’d better check with your carrier if you don’t know how to set it up. Usually, you need to use the PPPoE Protocol and enter the username&password provided by your carrier.
Thank you. Will i need to do that to be able to use the 1800s wireguard vpn function or can i just connect it to the ISP provided router modem combo and be able to use wireguard that way?
You can use WireGuard on the AX1800 for both methods of connection.
