VDSL Router?


[link to this post]
 
Good Afternoon Guys and Girls. New here to the forum.

I have had PlusNet Fibre for half a year now when I moved into a new property but I am finally getting around to kitting out my house with a new GB network office and server room and part of this I want to replace my router PlusNet provide as I am not keen on it.

While I am looking into it what would be really nice is to have one box instead of the BT VDSL Modem and the PlusNet Router so my question is - and yes I know its not officially supported but I would keep the old boxes nicely encase of problems - can I get myself a nice VDSL Router/Modem to replace both of the boxes I currently have?

Thanks,
Max

Yes smile

You've spotted the potential contractual issues, but integrated VDSL modem/routers are in use by some end users.

Not that many all in one units on the market as yet

Billion 8200N

and the other is the Fritzbox 7390 (but make sure you get a UK spec model)

We use 2 of the Draytek 2850s (Home & office) for several reasons

All in one device
ADSL & 3G backup for the VDSL
Lan to Lan VPN facility

Both work well – but can be painful to setup if you’re not too technical.

Since BT and PlusNet share the same bed, then maybe the HomeHub5 might be worthy of consideration.

Nope as the HomeHubs are usually locked to the provider in terms of the authentication username.
