Hi, Could you please advise if my current modem Archer VR1600v is compatible with Netgear Orbi RBK863S AX6000?

Thanks

Hi @Karina0604 . The Orbi does not have an RJ11 DSL port for FTTN so its WAN port connects to Archer LAN port.

If you use the VOIP phone, the Archer has to run in normal mode, with the Orbi as an expensive access point.
If you don't use the VOIP phone, the Archer can be put into bridge mode, and Orbi runs as wireless router.
The advertising blurb says it is compatible with any ISP.
Couldn't find any reference to this model in Community.

Thank you for the information. At least now I know it can be done.
