Completely disagree with the Draytek Vigor 130 being bad.

I've had one since around May 2017 and it not only lowered my ping but it improved my experience on IW ALOT.

It also stablises my line, compared to the BT Home Hub 6.

Keep in mind, the R1 still works with those listed you just may get a better experience with those in the compatibility list. Some people use those in the non compatible list and have no issues.

 

I can only say what I've experienced if people want to take the risk take it but the tops 2 have no risk.

 

The BT modem is good for those that want to do no configuration at all they just want it to set up itself.

 

NETGEAR DM200-100EUS it is my favorite bear in mind though you must configure it before putting it in modem mode you cannot put it in modem mode without configuring it.

 

Bear in mind I'm on a vdsl connection with high download and upload speed and very low ping of 4.

 

By the way I hate the BT Home Hub 6 definitely stick with BT Home Hub 5.

There are two BT modems, the Hauwei and the ECI, you should match chipset to that of your cabinet to get the best connection.

 

Your issue with the Dryteck may of been that you have a lantiq chipset on a Hauwei (Broadcom) cabinet.

 

You can see your stats if you flash or buy a pre flashed Hauwei modem.

With the DM200 would it not be better to leave it in router/modem mode to allow it handle the PPPoE connection. The R1 was not really designed to support PPPoE so taking the load off the R1 would be a good thing in this respect. Would there be any downsides to this configuration?

The downsides No IPv6 Internet.

 

I don't know if you can configure IPv6 internet in that mode but I certainly weren't able to.

 

If you can you really really have to know what you're doing.
