Hi. I've now got fibre to the cabinet, and an openreach modem, a BT home hub 3 and a gigabit switch (3 ports in use, plus 1 for the router).
I'd like to consolidate all of that into one device - it'll need to have gigabit ethernet ports (3 would be fine), and decent wireless range, ideally with 5ghz wireless n.
I'd like to get rid of all 3 devices and replace them with one device. I'm assuming there will be power savings in doing so.
Are there any devices out there that can do this?
Firstly, I don't believe there are any modem/routers that support FTTC as of yet.
Secondly, routers use very little power to be honest (usually ~12w). Doubt the investment would pay for itself.
Plus it would allow you to buy a dedicated router and install DD-WRT (Or other firmware) at a later date if needs be.
I'm actually looking to replace my modem/router hybrid with two devices for extra flexibility.
