Plusnet supplied router

Hi All

I just wondered what members' experiences with the Plusnet supplied router (Hub one?) are. I currently have a Draytek 2830n on my adsl line and it's rock solid and has good wifi performance. I am considering changing to FTTC (VDSL2?)but unfortunately the Draytek doesnt support this and I dont really want to splash out on a suitable router of my own.

So how do you all find the performance of the Plusnet device?

Thanks

John

Re: Plusnet supplied router

@Jovin123 I was in the same position as you. I like the facilities and performance of my 2830 but wanted to change to Fibre. I chose to get a VDSL modem, and continue to use the 2830 via it's WAN port. I initially thought about getting a HG612 BT modem from ebay (the ECI type is not so good!) but they were going for about £25. I eventually went for this http://uk.tp-link.com/products/details/cat-15_TD-W9970.html switched to bridge mode as a modem in front of the 2830. It get's a good review for it's modem performance here http://www.kitz.co.uk/routers/tplink_TD-W9970_review.htm and can be obtained for £29.99 at Argos http://www.argos.co.uk/product/5728882?cmpid=GS001&_$ja=tsid:59158|cid:200290250|agid:12504951290|ti... .

I'd still recommend getting the PlusNet Hub one as it only costs the postage. Just keep it as a backup or in case you need to connect it for PN to troubleshoot,
