A Broadband router (the device that you use to connect to the Internet) does not care what type of device or what OS is connected to it. ISPs only specify certain OSes so that their Installation Software (which is not needed anyway) can run.

In other words you can use any ISP.

Well, all devices you're likely to want to connect to a home router all support the same standards but the result is the same.

So the broadband itself will work fine. BT's lack of support means that if there are any issues with your computer relating to the internet then they won't help you troubleshoot them. They should fix any trouble relating to their service or the homehub.

However the point is that here is no such thing as router compatibility with an Operating System.

yeah I know but I'm trying to make it understandable for the OP that it will work and my context with any bundled software they might give and that BT probably do support it even if their website is not listed

It needs pointing out, as I did allude to earlier, that the 'bundled software' is at best unnecessary and at worst bloatware.
