Just got the new modem today, I'm wondering whether is has QoS or any similar setting or not? I tried to find but couldn't found it, nothing in manual as well :(. Besides, can I buy my own modem use it instead of the one from Vodafone (I'm using fibre broadband)?

It's used as an AP not as a modem and No QoS and yes you can use another one if you wish

Has to support Vlan tagging

Got it, am I right that ONT is basically the modem? So I only need the wireless router/AP as a connection port for my devices?

An ONT is a Media Converter, it converts Light waves into electrical signals passed over an Ethernet cable. your device needs to be a router

As johnr mentioned - you need one that support VLAN tagging.

I have HG659 myself - for average use, I don't see why you won't settle with this. I have about ~15 items (mixed wifi and cable) connected to it. 3 of them at least busy with constant streaming of data, on top of skype HD or amazon TV streaming.

I just want to make sure that the ONT is a modem so I only need a router, not another modem then. 

Yes the HG659 is not a bad device but I need something with QoS, my flatmates steaming youtube video quite a lot. I usually have skype call or play some games with my brother oversea in weekend so I need QoS to keep my ping low and stable without interrupt my flatmates

No, it's not a modem - it's a media converter, but that doesn't really matter in this case.

You need a router that supports VLAN tagging, you will be plugging in a standard ethernet cable into the WAN port on it, not a phone cable.

Do you ever have trouble with it dropping the connection on 2.4 GHZ devices.
