Upgrade to D-Link DIR865L from Huawei HG256s

I have an existing Huawei HG256s .If I upgrade to DIR865L by changing my rewards points. Do I need the technician to come onsite to install or I can contact Starhub directly and update my new router Mac ID for fibre to work?

Call 1633. I was told I can get the new router and just call them to activate the new router and retired the Huawei one.

After getting the router, you can connect it to the HG256 and configure bridgemode for it.

Possible provided you don't have digital voice.

My digital voice is still on the old motorola modem. Do not want to mix them up.

Then you can request to activate direct ONT and use your own router by connectting it directly to the ONT. Take note the HG will be of no use after that.

Yes, I knew that .Thank you for advice.Anyway the HG256 is quite a low performace router.Will just keep it as a backup.
