Supported Routers, router/modems

Hello,

 

Looking to upgrade the router we got when we upgraded to Fibre but would like to get one that's supported by Plusnet but cannot find a list of ones supported by them. We have six of us in the house so it can get heavily used. Not to worried if its a router or a modem/router but a combined unit will get rid of the box on the wall (which will please my wife)

I did buy a TP-Link AC-3200 a few months ago but the unit was faulty and sent back. Anything else along these lines that we should consider?

 

Cheers in advance

Davie

They only support the ones they supply

I have the Billion 8800NL which works well and also allows monitoring via dslstats

I'm considering a TP-Link Archer VR900 as heard reasonable reports

Re: Supported Routers, router/modems

except according to Kitz (from the earlier link) doesn't provide line stats which makes diagnosis of problems much harder

Have both a Draytek 2860 and a Fritzbox 7490 and both work with no probs at all. Draytek has 6 eth ports but Fritzbox does have the phone side covered as well, but as already mentioned most ISP's I know will only ever support the modem/Router that they supply.
