Netgear R6200 router

Does anyone know if the Netgear R6200 router is compatible with Plusnet Fibre?
I've been using the standard router that Plusnet supplied, but I'm looking for more wireless oomph these days and the R6200 is a good price at the moment.  Unfortunately I can't figure out if I can use it as with my current setup.
I've got the white Openreach box for the fibre broadband and then an ethernet to the current router.  It's the netgear router that gets the login details, but I can't figure out if the R6200 has the same capabilities to log into a PPoE connection.
Help!

Found the manual online.  Definitely has ISP login abilities.

Looking at the manual, It should be fine. Set the ISP connection to PPPoE and enter your plusnet username ( username@plusdsl.net ) & password

How long will you have to wait until it's back in stock?

Re: Netgear R6200 router

I ordered it last night.
Today I get a message saying - "Oops. We've run out".
Gee... Thanks!
Any other recommendations for decent wireless routers?

Re: Netgear R6200 router

I have just fitted a Netgear N600  WNDR3700
Bought mainly because it is a Dual band router  (2khz & 5Khz)  WiFi, if you dont have already, you'l also need WiFi dongle capable of 5Khz
the newer Ipads for example connect on the 5Khz band,
has other features I wanted, such as being able to plug in a USB nas drive
very easy install, and many features , aimed for speedier Wifi and HD streaming speeds
To be honest to ,, I cant say I have noticed the difference (yet anyway) to the plusnet one , poss as all our devices are close to the router anyway
