Hardware Setup Recommendations
« on: December 30, 2017, 10:00:47 PM »

Hi all,

I know this has been asked many times but what setup would you recommend for BT FTTC?

I'm connected to a Huawei cab, and swaying towards a 2 piece setup to avoid possible DSLAM issues. Currently my ISP is Sky (Switching back to BT) and i get 40000/7880.

Anything Netgear is out the question as no /56 prefix IPv6 support, also I used to have a D7000 on a BT circuit and had too many problems.

Thinking of getting Draytek Vigor 130 paired with a Linksys EA9500.

Comments on your setups and any advice is welcomed.
