Happy New Year all,
So I've had a bit of an "online purchase cockup", I have an ASUS RT-AC68U router inbound on a courier but I've just realised it is only a router and I still need a modem box in front of it. Can anyone recommend the best modem for this purpose (for VDSL)?
How this all started is I wanted to improve the wifi around the house/out to garage etc. Currently have fritzbox 7390 so rang ISP (2degrees) and they can supply fritz 7490 (with 802.11AC) for 15 bucks and resign for 12 months. Cool. However my OCD research kicked in and I found the ASUS RT-AC68U Gigabit WiFi Router which promised all things good for my purpose (apart from the lack of modem).
A few more questions to help sort out my new year mess:
Can I bridge the fritz 7390? or would this bottleneck the Asus somehow?
Should I get the fritz 7490 and bridge (if possible) that one in front of the Asus?
Is there another better/more suitable VDSL modem to put in front of Asus?
Should I just get the 7490 and return Asus un opened?
