    ONT only Port 1 for connection to computer.

    RC - Router with voice calling from the telco, have to pay a monthly fee.

    Router - Use your own router to connect your computer, NAS.

    You can visit the iDA IExperience to see the connection.

    Cheers.
    Now I need to get myself a router so I can surf via Wifi from my Mac in my study room. Any router to recommend? The guy told me any N router will do. Ermm... true? I assume I cant use my current ADSL2+ Modem Router for this eh?

    I believe you had selected the wrong setting for the testing server.

    The picture posted clearly shows the server is Singapore
    The malaysia servers should be either, Cyberjaya, Seri Kembangan, KL and Penang.

    Also, with respect to Singapore, Malaysia is usually considered regional,
    for international, can try America, Europe or China.

    Next comes the question ... which to go for? Singtel? Starhub? M1?

    M1 seems to have a cheaper plan though.

    Any recommendation? I am only using it for internet access.
