So need a router with built in modem (rj45 only not telephone line port)


Currently I am using an entry level netgear with excitel and it's giving me pain for VOIP calls (whatsapp/skype/SIP) and gaming with PS4(with LAN).

* Coverage is not a problem as it is needed for one small living room.
* Excitel is moving to fiber soon and hathway already is , so a router which can support fiber and Ethernet WAN both will be atleast future proof
* latency should be least. I will be playing only fifa 18 on PS4 multiplayer over PSN so need rock stable connection.
* 2.4GHz and 5GHz should both be supported.
* Should support excitel and hathway connections.

most imp is lag free gaming and voip.

I rather have everything built in one piece. In this day and age, we hardly have room for one rather than 2 and wires. anywyas, bump, anybody can help regarding this?

Wait for your service provider to shift to fibre, when they change your router, give them your requirement.

Its not like its going to occupy a whole lot of space.

If you go with ISP provided routers, they are usually crap. Additionally, I doubt most ISPs except Jio will provide fibre modem, they will give a GPON media converter instead. So still you will have 2 boxes.

router with built in modem (rj45 only not telephone line port) What kind of modem, I have DSL-AC68U it has DSL and VDSL option
How is it ? I am looking for something for Airtel V Fiber cause the Huawei model they have given is not good. All VDSL models seem expensive. Anything in the 5 to 6K range if you know ?

No Idea. This is just a router and I love it. It has everything I could ask for.

This is a really good router, I have used it on DSL, currently running on local PPoE connection, the range is very good, easily able to get range on one floor above, I have no experience of it on VDSL, it is a second hand 5K, got a steal deal from either this or E forum
