Yes, but Zen will refuse to give you the information you require.
I replaced my old cisco 867 with the fritzbox and it " just worked " For
a soho router they are not a bad box and they are free.
I run it dual stack, double NAT ipv4 and transparent ipv6 as I have my
own firewall (PFsense) behind it between my home network and the
internet,with no speed or any other issues..
Also they probably wont give you any support VoIP wise unless you use
their router, which is not unreasonable really they cant support everything.
If you must use your old router
If you first use the fritzbox you can find most of the information you
need from reading the config it will download automatically via TR69.
The password you get from your online account on the Zen website its
different to the login password for your internet service.
The VoIP password can be found in the general my services digital voice
