Hello all, I have not used anything DSL for over 12 years so excuse me if these are silly questions.

I have a Master Filter installed from ADSL days, will this work with VDSL or are there differing frequencies being used etc?

I have a decent router running DD-WRT configured just the way I want it. If I want to do some sort of bridged setup to retain my router and avoid double NAT, which sort of VDSL modem should I buy?

Thank you for any help you may be able to provide.

Vigor 130 is the modem you want.

Check your master filter - most likely needs to be replaced given the age, but worth looking.

2 pairs (orange, blue) = old ADSL only
3 pairs (green, orange, blue) = new VDSL capable.

I've bridged an ASUS RT-AC68U to my Spark-supplied modem on VDSL and find it excellent.
