I understand. Swisscom wants you to buy/use Swisscom products, that's a shame. I too was looking at the Netgear Nighthawk line or the Asus AC line. I simply wanted to buy a new router to just plug in and use without hiccups, but that's too much to ask for. I will continue doing my own research into this matter and see if I can come up with a solution to share. Do you happen to know the keywords and phrases when looking at modem/routers to know if they too can act as a bridge on the Swisscom line?
Hi there! I believe I am in the same problem as you are. So if I understand correctly from what you wrote, you can not simply replace the Swisscom Box ( I have the centro grande) and plug it into the Analog/VDSL Splitter and have it work? I too was looking at getting a Netgear or Asus Wireless Router/Modem to increase the WiFi range and also have access to more settings. And from what you wrote, the telephone and Swisscom TV would not work if I replace the Swisscom Centro Grande? Edit: Actually I have realized that the telephone line (from the wall) is still, actually linked directly to the landline telephone and not to the Router itself, does this mean I will not have telephony problems with a new router?
