Hello Brad,

What type of NBN do they have? is it HFC, FTTN or FTTP?

If there is already an NTU/CPE device that does the modulation and media
conversion and is presented in the premises as Ethernet, then I would
highly recommend sticking with OpenWRT with a Raspberry Pi, which is very
functional even on a dev banch[1] on or some other dev/SoC (System On Chip)
board such as the up-board up2[2] (currently being kickstarted[3]).
