My System

Hello Folks,
Finally, i got a notice that NBN broadband is now available to my address. It is fibre to the node, means Fibre would be running up to the nearby Corner and existing copper would be used to connect me to the fibre. (?).
I ordered NBN service from My Republic (service provider) and received a basic NBN ready moden/Router from them.
But I already have TP link Archer D7, which has more advanced features as router than what I received from Service provider. Archer D7 is a ADSL2+ modem/router and NBN router (not Modem).
Now, I am wondering, can i just use service providers Modem/Router only as Modem and Archer D7 as wireless router for my home network?
I mean:- Plug Archer D7 to one of the ethernet port of Service providers Modem Router.
I guess the basic question would be, Can i connect Router A to Router B and get router A to work?

Thank you

There is more involved than just connecting them together, some configuration is required. And unfortunately, not all ISP provided hardware will work in this fashion. I would first contact the ISP and tell them you would like to use your own router and ask if they can provide only a modem.

As for configuration, read this sticky: https://www.techsupportforum.com/foru...rs-655257.html
