Re: Third party router with FTTP

my speed sometimes drops down to 250 at times but its a shame that the signal is so weak on 5hz but most of my kit is wired in, my router is the r8000 tri-band so if your thinking of changing then at least you will know it will run those speeds you have

Re: Third party router with FTTP

The R8000 has a different processor (though, on the face of it, it's 1Ghz dual core instead of the R7800's 1.7Ghz dual core?) so it must be able to handle processing the modem data better. Right now I'm managing OK with the SmartHub, but good to know the higher end Netgear's might be able to handle the speed.

Re: Third party router with FTTP

I am using the ONT connecting to a Unifi Gateway USG-3 using PPPoE connection and its working perfectly no speed issues for me.

Re: Third party router with FTTP

Going to upgrade shortly. Want to ditch the Bt router for the same reasons. How are you getting on now. Bridging from the Bt router is a non starter for me. 

ive got a ASUS RT-AC86u which is beefy enough. Hoping it’ll be plug and play. Did changing the MTU help.

Re: Third party router with FTTP

With regard to the R7800, I'm using one now with BT 330Mbps FTTP and am experiencing no problems at all achieving full speed. Perhaps the firmware has been updated since this thread started.

Re: Third party router with FTTP

connect your usg wan 1 port to the fiber modem on the wall, and Lan 1 to your switch or pc

enter the settings for ppoe connection and wait a few mins and it will connect. I have the same setup and its working perfectly
