I've just signed up with Plusnet on moving house, and am just getting my bearings for a new setup (not in the house until Dec 14th, so trying to figure it out early!)
From reading these boards it seems you can't push the Hub One into bridging mode, nor shut off the wifi and have it act purely as a modem. Which leaves me with the obvious question, with the 55Mbps fibre connection, and a new mesh setup I'm keen to get the most from, what's going to be the best modem to use?
Assuming there's no way to bend the Hub One to our will, do I just go with something cheap like the Openreach hg612 modem I've seen recommended a couple of times? Will that be able to get the most from fibre speeds as a modem, or is it worth picking up a sturdier modem, like the Netgear CM500, or something better still?
Any help greatly appreciated - I don't have much experience with networks and normally just use the provider's default router for wifi. Thanks!
Fixed! Go to the fix.
I think it's generally accepted that the hg612 is still one of the best modems around. It's perfectly capable ( as a modem ) of handling the throughput of any fttc connection
