Fibre Broadband & Wireless Router


[link to this post]
 
I'm just upgrading to Zen's Fibre broadband and I'm scheduled for an engineer's visit next week. Can anybody give me a bit of help over what hardware is needed. I have tried to contact Zen but things are a bit slow there over Xmas.

I understand that I will have to replace my Netgear DG834 V2 Wireless modem router but as to what I'm a bit confused. Zen mention 2 models the Dreytek which is far too expensive for me and a Netgear WNR2000 which seems to have a terrible reputation, at least on Amazon feedback.

So basically what would anybody recommend I buy and how exactly will things be setup by the engineer? Does he install a new modem and I have to supply the wireless router if needed?

Thanks,

dc

So it seems that as long as there is a WAN ethernet port like in a cable modem then it should work?

That's right, as long as it can do PPPOE authentication. Even a PC can do that with the modem connected.
