Alternative Wireless routers with inbuilt VDSL modem.


[link to this post]
 
I have been having issues with my FTTC connection for the last few weeks whereby my I.P profile has dropped and I have been seeing some high pings. Unfortunately no one as yet apart from BT can access the BT Modem to gain the stats. Now apart from getting my hands on a JDSU tester my only other option is to purchase a VDSL router.

I have been scouring the internet to see which devices are available on the market and as far as I can see the only device that has been tested as working is the Thomson TG789vn, albeit being a bit buggy.


DLink DSL 6740B- No UK stock as far as I can see- Does not work according to this post.

Zyxel P-870HW-51A- £111.73 delivered here at Porthale Services. Cannot find any feedback stating this router works.

ZyXEL P-870HN-51b- £137.28 delivered here at Porthale Services. Cannot find any feedback stating this router works.


Thomson TG789vn - £147.92 delivered here at DSL Source - As far as I have read the router works but the stats are buggy.


DrayTek Vigor 2750n - £201.97 delivered here by an Amazon UK market seller. Cannot find any feedback stating this router works.


FRITZ!Box Fon WLAN 7390 - AVM7390- £214.99 delivered here at CCL. Does not work according to this post.

The prices I have stated above may not be the cheapest but I have supplied links where the devices are in stock at the time of me writing this post.

Has anyone else tested any of the devices above? Otherwise I may just buy the Thomson TG789vn.

I think this will work:

Ask in the Apple forum for confirmation.

That's a router only and requires Ethernet connection to a WAN.

It doesn't have an internal modem.

Sorry, I thought the OP was after a router to plug in to the VDSL modem.

Any particular reason for not asking about a VDSL2 modem only?

(assuming somebody sells such a thing!)

There are two VDSL2 modems that are available, the SMC smc7800a/vcp and the ZyXEL P-871M but I am not sure if I can obtain stats from these devices? A 2 in 1 device would be my preference as it would save some room on my desk, plus I guess it would use less power.

Fair enough... can't help with stats availability, but the ZyXEL is about the same price as a modem/router and neither have gigabit Ethernet*, so that's those two out!


* Quite a few people have reported that 10/100Base-T Ethernet routers don't have the grunt to handle an FTTC connection running flat out, presumably down to using a slower processor.
