I'm switching broadband providers to take advantage of the new-to-my-area BT Infinity.
My current network setup consists of a Netgear ADSL modem and an Apple Time Capsule router. This replaces the Sky Broadband network hardware provided by Sky, which is a Sky branded netgear ADSL modem and router in-one.
BT have sent me an 'Infinity Home Hub', which appears to integrate a modem (there is a landline phone socket), however there is an ethernet port coloured red and marked as 'broadband'.
I have done my research and discovered that while BT Infinity advertises as Fibre Optic broadband, it is really fibre to the cabinet (FTTC) and then vDSL to the property.
Does anyone know if the Home Hub integrates the vDSL modem?
If possible I would prefer to keep my current router (the Apple Time Capsule), regardless of whether BT will support me with it or not. Would it be possible to turn off the routing features of the home hub and simply bridge it with the Time Capsule? Effectively relegating the home hub to just be a modem and not a router.
If the router features cannot be disabled and the home hub is indeed also a modem, are there any vDSL modems from reputable names like Linksys, Netgear, Belkin, that I could purchase? I couldn't find any during my initial research - it seems that vDSL isn't widely used throughout Britain, and as a result, no hardware is sold here.
Any help will be greatly appreciated.
