Simple Ethernet to Phone connector?

Hi.

Recently got Fibre installed and want to continue to use the Netgear D6400 router we have been using with our VDSL2 previous connection. Reason being the Vodafone supplied router is awful. Drops WiFi connection regularly to multiple devices. Say you are connected but no Internet connection in reality. Stops giving out DHCP addresses and needs power cycle etc and the WiFi signal is poor at distance. By comparison the Netgear covers full range of our house and under VDSL2 gave us 30% more download rate.... Anyway. ..

The D6400 works fine but it doesn't have the phone break out connection. So I have to have both the Vodafone router (with WiFi disabled) and the Netgear connected to the Fibre ONT box (via GigE switch)

Aesthetically this isn't very nice and I would like to just have a simple box that can take the GigE signal out of the ONT and turn it into a connector that the phone can plug into rather than having the whole Vodafone router there just to connect the phone?

Anyone aware of a product that will do this?

Thanks

you need an ATA (analogue telephone adaptor) box, this does what you are describing, the problem is that VF may not be too  fourthcomming about supplying the configuration details, might be an idea to see if you can  get the configuration details from VF before purchasing an ATA box.

 

You will also need to configure some port forwarding rules in your router to make it all work.

 

The other option is to buy a new router with ATA ports on it
