I have to replace my modem but it appears the industry has moved on and now mostly produces modem/routers. But I already have a NetCom NP802n router which appears to be working OK. What would be the technical pitfalls of running say a Netcomn NB6PLUS4 ADSL/2/2+ (by Ethernet) just as the modem and the NP802n continuing as the router. (1st pitfall would be a bigger hole in my wallet)
Would I need to disable any router configuration of the NB6PLUS4 so that it didn’t interfere with the existing network.
Not into gaming or intensive activities and the only wireless use so far is to a printer, although I am considering getting into pushing downloaded video/TV through to the TV in the next room.
I know it’s an expensive way to buy a modem but when the 802n eventually karks it I’ve already got the replacement sitting there.
Or is it all a silly idea and I should just biff the 802n.
