ADSL Set up

Go to solution
Just a quick one

I have standard ADSL connection, using the smart hub. But I’ve just bought the Netgear XR500. Is my best option to buy an Openreach modem now?

Thank you

Well you will need a modem of some sort, that device is just a router.

Up to you really. Openreach modems are only available via ebay etc at varying prices, Amazon are currently selling the D-Link DSL -320B for £9.99

Edit:  If you are likely to be upgrading to VDSL at any point, then get an ADSL/VDSL modem. The Openreach Huawei HG612 modem does both.
