Netgear D6400 - will this be fine with FTTC?


[link to this post]
 
Sorry for the simple question..

I have a Netgear D6400 (which seems to be also known as the AC1600) - as seen here.

And it's working well with my ADSL broadband.

Our cabinet is in the 'Build' stage for FTTC (Weeheeee!!) - when this is ready, will my Netgear work as a combined modem and router with fibre too? It does say VDSL on the spec list, but I've seen references to VDSL2 on this forum, and I don't know the difference, if there is one.

Thanks

Used to have one and used it as a modem and router with my Plusnet FTTC. So should work with majority of FTTC isps - Sky a bit more finicky due to having to get username and password first.

IIRC the modem uses a Broadcom chipset so should pair well if your cab happens to be a Huawei one.

All the best

Avoid Vodafone, as it is next to impossible to get them to tell you the uerid and password that you need to know to establish a connection.

Not sure how 'rainbow trout fry syndrome' is relevant, but thanks anyway.

Not a very welcoming nor helpful attitude considering:

a) "Sorry for the simple question.."
>They pre-emptively lead with an apology and request for help.

b) "It does say VDSL on the spec list, but I've seen references to VDSL2 on this forum, and I don't know the difference, if there is one."

>They DID read the spec list and they don't understand VDSL versus VDSL2 and that they would like some clarification if the modem would indeed work with VDSL2. There's ADSL and ADSL2 so I can understand the hesitation to buy the modem without confirming this first.
