Hi all,

Having VDSL installed through Vodafone in a couple of days time.I was sent the router today and it is an hg556a. I was reading in one of the forums that some people were given the hg659. Was I sent the wrong modem? 


Thanks in advance.

I was under the impression its the hg659 thats needed. They may have sent the old modem in error. Have you called them? I know the newer one works on adsl aswell but you do need the hg659.

I was also sent the HG556A for one of the VDSL installs which is wrong. Ring them and ask them to send the HG659

Do whatever you want to do man.
