I'm transitioning over to NBN HFC from Optus cable in a few weeks, and I'm trying to figure out what equipment I need. I'm currently using the crappy Optus Netgear CG3000v2 modem in bridge mode, plugged into a much better Netgear router. I'd like to find an HFC-compatible modem to use in its place, but I can't seem to find very much beyond a few basic Netcomm models. I'm considering going with Tangerine who offer a basic modem/router for about $90, which can be configured to use bridge mode. My question is are there any better HFC-compatible modems out there? I'd love just a modem (rather than a modem/router) because I intend to use my own network hardware. Should I just suck it up and spend $90 on the crappy Netcomm modem, or can anyone recommend any alternative products for this purpose? Thanks for any and all replies!
