My parents have just ordered Infinity 2, to be installed towards the end of Jan. I'm assuming they will only get the HH5 and won't be offered a VDSL modem. (Their cabinet looks to be the large Huawei as in RobertoS pictures). As they're fairly technical, and would like things like VPN, DDNS, and the ability to set MAC address to IP address assigned DHCP - I'm looking into how easily they could replace the HH5.
Obviously they should ask their installer if they have any modems on the van, as that would be simplest, but I'm assuming by end Jan they will no longer be provided for Infinity installs. Thus obtaining one from a well known auction site is likely, and then attaching a separate ASUS or TPLink or similar router with the desired features and setting up PPPoE.
If the HH5 had a modem mode this wouldn't be an issue :-/
Anyone had any thoughts on this type of issue yet?
