Re: Routers compatible with Fibre 2...

Are there any WiFi6 modem/routers out there compatible with BT G.Fast ? I just bought an Asus DSL-AX82U as mistakenly thought it was.....now have to return it and try and find something else, but very difficult to confirm 100% online which ones across manufacturers support G.Fast? (I understand the spec is ITU-T spec  G.9700 and G.9701 but I cannot find this anywhere, or indicated on my contract with BT, etc.)

The Asus supported a range of others like G.994, etc which I (learner driver !!) thought being sold in the UK would "obviously" work with BT and the prior version (DSL-AC88U) apparently did work ? Seems odd that they newer WiFi6 version does not !!

I have been recommended the Draytek 166 but it doesn't have router functionality or WiFi6 ?

thanks

I could be wrong, but I suspect manufacturers have probably given up producing G.Fast compatible devices as it is such a small market with very little, if any, prospect of growing.
