Bridge modem recommendations?

Hi all,

 

I live in an old cottage with thick stone wifi-unfriendly walls so I have set up a Google mesh and disabled wifi on the Hub One. It works really well.  Now I want to set up a VPN to externally share some resourses attached to the NAS by USB.  For the NAS to be accessible to my devices it needs to be on the google network so I need a modem that will operate in bridge mode. 

I have seen a list of suitable modems in this forum but it has been on fairly old posts and most of the modems discontinued so I was wondering if anyone had any more up to date recommendations.

TIA for any advice.

If you want a new one there's a few people on here using the Draytek 130. Personally I've used a tplink w9970 which can be configured for bridge mode, it has a good modem but looks awful!

Other than that its a used Hg612 Openreach modem...
