Hi folks, I've connected my Netgear D6200 Adsl router to my BT Hub6 using the method described in this thread - https://community.bt.com/t5/Connected-Devices-Other/Configure-Home-Hub-5-as-modem-only/m-p/1437081#M...
Speedtests on BT Wholesale using ethernet leads only shows the speeds are the same on both routers @ 52 mbps down and 10 mbps up. Everything (BT Tv, Youview, NowTv etc.) works fine when I connect using the Negear indluding the Dlna for home networking.
My question is - is it safe to connect an Non Vdsl router to a Vdsl router at those speeds ?
Solved! Go to Solution.
I'm wondering if the Adsl (Non vdsl) router is capable of maintaining the high connection rates without burning out or becoming a fire risk ?
The limiting factor on any ethernet network is the connection speed and capabilities of the slowest router, in the chain/route.
So are you saying that the Non Vdsl (Netgear d6200) would not connec at those rates if is wasn't capable,therefore it doesn't present a fire risk ?
