Hello,

I am not very tech-savvy so please bear with me! I recently purchased a Nighthawk x6 and am looking for a good modem to go with it. Currently using a SHG1500 which doesn't support bridge mode (doh!). Currently we're on ADSL but will be moving to VDSL or UFB soon, so I need something that can support everything.

I guess a modem-only option would be preferable but I think I can figure out how to put a modem/router in bridge mode if necessary.

We have tonnes of devices in the house, mostly streaming video & gaming, if that is relevant.

Thank you!

Draytek Vigor 130





Chorus has spent $1.4 billion on making their xDSL broadband network faster. If your still stuck on ADSL or VDSL, why not spend from $150 on a master filter install to make sure you are getting the most out of your connection?
I install - Naked DSL, DSL Master Splitters, VoIP, data cabling and general computer support for home and small business.

coffeebaron: Draytek Vigor 130



Suitable for UFB? It doesn't explicitly state that it is

Your Nighthawk can support UFB by itself without the need of anything else. For ADSL or VDSL the Draytek Vigor 130 is what you're after.

If you move to UFB just sell the Draytek as you won't need it anymore. Very simple to configure the Nighthawk to work with UFB and I am sure somebody on here can walk you through doing it.

Awesome, thank you!

Just found some instructions around bridging the 130- do I have to worry about "bridging WAN tag to the LAN port" or "PPPoE Pass-through"? I'm not sure what I'm doing at this point!

Cheers :)

Can someone clarify to me how can I make the Netgear Nighthawk R8000 work on UFB with out anything else.
I am kicking my self now I bought one on boxing day for a bargain and returned without opening the box because no one said it could work until I found this Forum today.

Thanks

Go claim it back as it is a pretty good router.
