What equipment is supplied with the trial?

Hi,  apologies for asking but not made clear to me.  For the purpose of the trial do I need to buy any new hardware or will both a VDSL modem and hub be supplied (wireless +ethernet?).  If just the VDSL model can I use my existing Netgear DG834PN router or do I need to get a replacement router/hub and if so what should I get. Sorry for the questions.....
Kind regards, Pete

Re: What equipment is supplied with the trial?

Not sure which of the ones being trialled is supplied - possibly the netgear WNR1000 (a 4 port wioreless N WAN router) or the WNR2200 (similar to the 1000), but PN will supply a suitable WAN router for the trial. BT supply the VDSL modem.
You can't use your netgear as it is an ADSL modem and you need a WAN (Ethernet) connection supporting PPPoE to connect to the ethernt port of the VDSL modem. You can't convert the 834 for this.
Also they are proper routers (like your netgear), not hubs.
