      advice with a R8000 modem

      i am currently using a 3rd party modem (N300) and have been haply for years !

      i wanted to update my modem to an R8000 but need some guidance on how to configure this so it works !

      since sky wont help as its 3rd party and most likely brakes a few rules

      i am hoping some one here has tried this modem with sky with results

      i have had some guidance from :

      NETGEAR R8000 nighthawk x6

      but still rather stuck

      so the r8000 is a router only device, it's not a modem . Are you fibre or adsl to start?

      ADSL

      looks like ill be looking at a as D6200, DGND4000 or DGND3700 as a replacement

      though one with better DoS protection would be nice ?
