Thanks for the update. (I can stop checking every few days) Do you think the DSL-AX82U will work on a BT VDSL2 line? My current router (a Draytek) shows my BT line as “VDSL2, Profile 17A, Annex A”. I know Draytek work with BT VDSL2 but there is little sign of Draytek producing a WiFi 6 router. The specs for the DSL-AX82U list only profile 35b and a lot of G99X.X numbers that I don’t fully understand.

Yes the  DSL-AX82U should work well on any BT ADSL / VDSL2 service, alas the DSL-AX82U will not support G.fast but for you this does not seem to be  a concern

FYI – on BT VDSL2, the important standard is G.998.4 (G.INP) which if you are connected to a Huawei Cabinet, will enable you to have a slightly higher synch rate (more bandwidth) than expected

The DSL-AX82U supports G.998.4 (G.INP)
