Do you know what the modern equivalent of the Zyxel VMG-8924-B10A is?
This is a very good modem (ADSL and VDSL) but not very good at WiFi. You could disable the WiFi in the Zyxel and add a separate mesh system.

IT doesn't do NAT loop back and is now outdated though, isn't it?

I used mine in modem mode. I never need NAT loopback, don’t attempt to host stuff at home. Outdated? No, its a very good box, its just not designed for WiFi as it only has 2.4GHz.

I was just going on what I have been told about John Lewis Broadband supplying a modern version.

In my experience a modern version is not usually better, but it may well do NAT loop back. wink

Why are you so obsessed by NAT loopback, you have been peppering the forum with posts about it? Is it something that is absolutely essential or are there other methods that could be used to achieve the required end result?

I have a Zyxel VMG-8924-B10A. it does NAT loop back and has 5GHz Wifi.

I think the VMG3925-B10B is the replacement. It is smaller but lacks some noise filter which may or may not make a difference to the DSL connection.

For further information see.

Thanks for that.

Any idea at what point that changed?
