I have Internode ADSL1 at home with Nodephone 2, using Billion 7404VGP-M
that I bought from the computer fair about $100 cheaper than from Internode.
Works perfectly, though you don't need the build in POTS support (hence the
7401, I assume). Good thing about using models that they approve is that
Support will help you, plus you can use their config files for easy

As for VOIP quality, it's brilliant. Internode have dedicated QoS hardware
all the way from you to the Internet. Plus Internode kick ass :)

I'd recommend using Nodephone 2 on Internode's Naked ADSL2+ Extreme with
7401 purchased from the Computer fair with the latest firmware and
Internode's provided config file.
