Another nice price drop by Futu and cheaper than the current group deal. Enjoy :)
Original eBay 20% off selected stores deal post
I was 'just' willing to purchase it at $111 but I can't justify spending this much on a modem to upgrade my current DGND3700v2. Good deal though for anyone who was already planning to buy this.
Was clear price error. Doubt any will be honoured or they just stupid if they do.
Does DGND3700V2 work with NBN? because I have the same model and just wondering it works or should I Buy another one cheers
Yeah it has a WAN port. So as long as you don't get something that requires a VDSL modem. Too bad my area will never receive the NBN. Stuck with Telstra until the end of time.
Yep, I can confirm it works with NBN Fibre to the Premesis.
yep was gonna pay $111 but not this :(
I think we (me included) have to get $111 out of our heads, this still represents good value for a reliable unit.
Its too late.. $111 or nothing for most of us lol
Same price at Wireless 1 Ebay store after you apply the CLICKMORE code :
Why is this comment getting negged?
no idea, thats why I plussed.
I am going to pull the trigger, will wireless 1 or 3rd players join the price war?
shame it's not wall mountable….
Anyone knows any hacking trick to wall mount an unmountable router?
Ummm, a shelf?
yeah, a shelf seems the only option, but I'm not so DIY to mount a shelf….
looking for something that i can just tape to the wall somehow…….
the router currently sits inside a cabinet on top of the fridge…
the cabinet is pretty tall, but no shelves inside…
so really i don't care how it will look inside, as long as it is mounted, lol
Visit Bunnings or masters and see what they have, some kind of bracket maybe.
Take a few photos of you modem in the cupboard and show a staff member and see what they come up with.
yeah i thought about that, but the shape of it means i have to break its leg, or tape it forward.
cable tie? works for anything!
wrap around the modem with cable tie, if no hole or hanger on the wall then use sell stick hanger, but beware glue has very limited life time. the front of the modem can face to wall, wrap from top to bottom with two strips.
@leetec: that makes sense, I'll try that…
Can anyone with knowledge on wifi/wireless cards possibly help me? I bought an Asus UX32VD ultrabook a few years back, and I always seemed to feel as though the wireless internet speed I got was kinda subpar (even when using fast university internet). I recently updated the card driver to the most recent version, but I'm yet to really notice any major improvement. The wireless card in question is an "Intel Centrino Advanced-N 6235".
My question is; would it be worth purchasing a USB network adapter to use instead? Or would my time be better spent trying to open up the laptop and replace the card entirely?
Apologies for my lack of knowledge on this subject, but any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.
You may be experiencing a slower connection due to other slower devices on the network. I found my 100mbps connection was peaking around half speed (probably 56mbps) I ended up hooking up an ac access point last weekend and speed now hits high 90s (mine is in a NUC and similar card to yours)
Laptops (and even more-so ultrabooks) are a nightmare to try and open and fiddle with, even for IT people. You also need to find out beforehand if the wireless card is soldered to the motherboard. I wouldn't recommend it. If you can borrow a USB adapter to test first that would be your best bet.
Are you connecting through a repeater?
Each range extender typically halves the network throughput to your device.
So if you instead connected directly to the main wireless on the router, it would make a huge difference.
(nvm, ignore me, not sure how i missed that you had tried it on university wireless as well)
Any benefit getting this over the billion bipac 8800axl?
Is the archer also nbn ready?
And includes proper vpn tunnels?
Parental protection? Good or just after thought?
I would prefer to buy the one from Wireless1 if it is the same price.
Futu delivers with Fastway courier, which if you not at home, they leave it at participating newsagent.
For my case the participating newsagent is 5km away………
Isn't it the same cost https://www.ozbargain.com.au/node/252758
It's the same cost, but wireless1 delivers with Australia post.
I don't know you would pick up fastway from, but usually it's further than post office
I find it strange that the wireless 1 has less votes than this, some comments pointing to the wireless 1 deal were even negged.
When wireless1 was first posted, the price was around $191. They only lowered the price to match futu after TA made his post.
And now they've come up with an even better offer: https://www.ozbargain.com.au/node/252861
The wireless post was before this though, was it edited later?
Yeah it was edited by the OP with the lower price around 4 hours after posting I think.
I see. Thanks.
Nice price - I paid $17 more last week in the previous ebay 20 per cent off deal. Has the Belkin surge protector thrown in, which I probably don't need. Only benefit to paying slightly more is that it's sitting in my parcel locker ready for collection this evening :)
Hey gang - just for noting.
Be aware the terms and conditions for the wifi extender claim appear to require purchase from certain stores only. See the terms and conditions at the link below. Apols if I'm wrong but I didn't see Futu on the list. For those who have purchased via them, hopefully just an oversight:
"Excludes Unauthorised E-Bay & E-Tailers. The offer is applicable to all other retailers and channels. Only authorised E-bay stores are acceptable, please view http://www.tp-link.com.au/where-to-buy/?categoryid=902 for authorised online stores."
Good spotting. I have left a message with TP-Link support asking if purchases from FutuOnline and Wireless1 are eligible. Will update when I get a response.
Wireless1 is eligible because i claimed a promo item when i bought a d9 before.
Unsure about futuonline.
Wireless1 is listed on their approved online sellers page (see page 4 - it's alphabetised).
Futu isn't listed but let us know what they say in case it's an oversight. Mine arrived today from Wireless1. Haven't unboxed it yet.
Isn't this the exact same price as https://www.ozbargain.com.au/node/252758
Competitive pricing ~ Good for consumers ~
Yeah but why on earth would you get that when Netgear R7000 & ASUS RT-AC68U are the same price ATM (from same vendors - see recent deals)?
The "bonus" items do not make up for the loss in performance ;)
They're both routers aren't they? This is an adsl modem/router. Some peeps don't want two peripherals.
I was responding to PVA's comment.
Unfortunately I find myself in the situation of owning a Telstra cable modem. Unfortunately the Gateway Max product they sell does not actually function as a router despite costing me $140 so customers are required to buy their own additional router. This is a solution endorsed by Telstra agents on crowdsupport and they continue to sell the non-functional router to people at various prices while they rip them off for everything else at the same time.
The insanity of it is the router model is fine it's just that Telstra's custom firmware breaks the product.
I had the TP link AC1900 router. When placed within 0.5m of the speakers it creates a pulsing noise. I was sitting quite close to it it worried me alot. Eventually I put back my old N router in. The noise is gone.
Seems to be a common issue with TPLink. Many smaller ISPs provide different models and they've all had the same problem in my experience.
