Compatible Router for HFC NBN Connection

Planning to purchase router for installation of a Data Only HFC NBN connection shortly. Looking for confirmation if TP-Link Archer AX73 Wireless AX5400 Router is suitable for HFC VLAN Tagging and whether there are other higher performance routers recommended for HFC. Is the AX5400 router all I require other than the NBN ARRIS Connection Box to set up internet and WiFi? Thanks.

Hi @JI01 . Some info on AX73 here:

https://community.tpg.com.au/t5/Modems-and-Devices/Third-Party-Router-TP-Link-AX73/m-p/99542

VLAN ID=2 is used on bundled NBN/VOIP plan. If you have BYO data only plan, VLAN ID is not used.

The Arris box and a router are all that is needed. The router is also suitable for FTTC and FTTP.
