NETGEAR Nighthawk X6 R8000 WiFi Cable & Fibre Router - AC 3200, Tri-band

Can you clarify what type of service you have, you can't connect a WAN port to a master socket. Either you connect the DSL port to a master socket or the WAN port to the LAN port on an Openreach ONT (optical modem). If you connect the DSL port of your hub to the master socket the Netgear won't work without a separate modem.

Bear in mind that none of those will work if you have an ultrafast (G.fast) connection.

That should be fine,

You will need to enter the PPPoE login details to get an Internet connection to BT.
