Anyone on NowTV?

I just switched from plusnet to nowtv, their introductory rates are really good. £30 a month for full speed fibre, no traffic controls, including line rental and unlimited anytime landline and mobile.

The trouble is they're support forums are completely rubbish. They seem to be a new ISP and dont have a lot of exisiting user base to share tips. I can't find any information on how to set up my own router on their network.

They use MPOA authentication on VDSL, I can't find any routers that have MPOA on their spec list.

So I have to use their own ISP supplied router, then use my current router as an accesspoint. The only issue is if I do use my own router as an access point. Does the router becoming just a "dummy access point" with no traffic control, network management features of its own?

So the traffic and network management of the router I lose, the guest network and public network will be relegated to the host router (nowtv broadband box)?
