Modem/router Advice for 2019

Hi all,

I currently have an RT-AC56U with an old openreach Huawei modem on an 80/20 fttc package which my isp says is no longer used or supported but still fine to use if working ok.
I'm currently looking too change router and not too sure what would be the best move ?
All i really do is online gaming (wired) and streaming netflix (wifi)..etc nothing else.
So i was reading a post by mark and he said that the asus dsl-ac68u was still a good pick in 2018, is this still the same for 2019 ? Even this router is knocking on abit now, so if i'm to buy a new modem/router in one do i look for one that is recently released?
Does it matter anymore what time of modem you use ? I read that some green cabs work better with Huawei modems?

Can someone please recommend a decent all in one modem/router for fttc connection ?

A key point here is that Huawei are just the brand, but the chipsets underneath are often made by different people so I wouldn't worry too much about that side. Last recommendations I did were here:


Big issue now is that we're about to see a new generation of 802.11ax (WiFi6) routers hit the market, so there's something to be said for taking a pause on any decision until the end of 2019 to see what surfaces.

Well I'm currently using a slightly earlier model of the TP-Link on that page and it seems to do the job well enough.
