Combined VDSL2 Modem Routers
« on: September 15, 2014, 01:06:47 AM »

There is a shortage of choice for combined VDSL2 Modem Routers available in the UK,  so I decided to list those that are currently available for purchase in the UK.

------------
This thread is purely for information on combined VDSL modem routers. 
Please dont use it to ask which router to buy - start a new thread :)

NOTE:  To qualify for the list it must be available for purchase in the UK and it must contain a VDSL modem as specified by the manufacturer.   I'm well  aware that there are some modem/routers which can be hacked with custom firmwares. Im also aware that there are ISP specific routers which may work and can be purchased from say ebay to work with another ISP.     The HomeHub 5 will only work with BT and Plusnet.  The TT HG635 can also be made to work with other ISPs - see npr's guide.  However that is not the intention of this thread, if you want to discuss hacking other routers please start a separate thread.

I don't think the ASUS DSL-N66U and DSL-AC68U are Lantiq chipset based. I think they're both MediaTek (TrendChip) based.

Hi Kitz

That's great, I've been searching high and low for any info on combined vdsl modem routers but even the manufactures websites are a bit short on info and also very contradictory so this is just what I was looking for, are there any Netgear vdsl modem/routers ?

I believe there is a Netgear combined vdsl modem/router but last time I checked it wasnt available in the UK and only worked in Germany where they use a different annex to the UK.   I'll try do some digging to see if there is any more up to date info.

If you look on the Netgear site..  they all seem to be adsl2+ and no mention of vdsl :/

http://www.netgear.co.uk/home/products/networking/dsl-modems-routers/

ETA

Ive had a look around and cant seem to see anything.   Theres lots of Netgears claiming to be VDSL routers..  but when you look closely at the specs they either just contain a normal adsl modem and/or you still need to use one of the Openreach modems with them.
If anyone does know of one.. please let me know so I can update this thread.

What about BT Home Hub 5 and what chipset do they come with? As I know that BT Home Hub 5 are not very good. I seen peoples reporting it kept rebooting firmware itself in the background and the VDSL2 stats is rather poor. Also u cannot use Thinkbroadband BMQ too.

Re Billion 7800NXL...  I didn't think any of the '7800 family had VDSL connectivity other than via EWAN port and separate modem?

That's right. On VDSL2 systems the 7800s can be used as routers only, with a separate modem.
