Yes, this has ethernet connections only. You likely need a modem that can handle VDSL, or for slower connections ADSL.

Yes. Not sure if you can do that on the stock firmware though.
This might be a stupid question to you all but why would I need this over the router supplied by my ISP?

Thank you

Generally better hardware than what's provided by your ISP (increased Wi-Fi range, multi channel/band, better admin panel) - some devices also let you install custom firmware, for adding extra features to your network.
Bought it! Thanks mate

How does this compare in speed and dropped connections, to using just a BT …How does this compare in speed and dropped connections, to using just a BT hub with standard internet connection (not fibre)? My BT hub with wireless connection, loses connection about once an hour.

I have a Netgear r700 which vastly improved my bt hub6 which dropped out several times per day and has no qos so ps4 or xbox one lagged every time. Qos and boom ps4 and Xbox no lag.
Also far better app with loads of options such as turn off certain devices from the internet.
I'm guessing this router does the same sort of stuff
Ordered one. Let's see how it works on VPN via TigerVPN or Windscribe.

Does DD wrt void the warranty,?
I dislike Linksys routers, same old dated user interface and no firmware support from Linksys.

No it shouldn't. You can revert back to stock easily.
