    Advice please!
    I have a Linksys wrt1900ac (router only) and have been using my old Netgear dg384 in bridge mode successfully until yesterday when it lost power.
    The 2 options I was thinking about replacing the Netgear with are: Billion 7800nxl or Linksys X1000
    Will any basic modem/router do?
    Any suggestions? I only need it for bridge mode.....some other details: live in Australia, using ADSL2, national fibre optic access coming soon, looking for something cost friendly under $150,
    Any help appreciated

    If you only expect to use the modem/router in bridge mode (acting as modem only) why not just get a modem instead of a modem/router? (I don't have any suggestions for either, as I only have experience with cable service.)

    Hi Terry thanks for your prompt reply!
    I did think to buy a modem only but it seems all modems are integrated now, there doesn't seem to be any made in the last 1-2 years ...
