    Can someone explain what the USB ports are used for on routers?

    •  

      Probably the most common is to use Networked storage, printers or 3/4G modems.

    •  

      Well speaking for this specific example, I've got an external hard drive hooked up the modem/router and I stream to my Chromecast/Phone/Whatever. Saves me the trouble of worrying about having a proper NAS or any kind of server.

      •  

        I just have my NAS plugged into one of the network ports but if you just have an external HDD I can see how they would come in handy. :)

      •  

        How do you stream to Chromecast from the external drive?

        • +1 vote

          I don't know how much you know about anything, but assuming you know nothing - the modem has DLNA support and I hook up my hard drive like they suggest - http://kb.netgear.com/20134/Using-a-NETGEAR-router-as-a-DLNA...

          I control the streaming with an app on my phone - I use BubbleUPnP. As an added bonus with BubbleUPnP you've got an option to install a server program on a PC that'll convert any unsupported video formats on the fly as you stream it to the Chromecast. It just runs in the background on a PC I have on all the time anyway and I forget it's even there.

          I should also say that I genuinely do not properly understand all the options for setting up streaming. But what I've done works flawlessly and seems reasonably uncomplicated, so eh.

      I use mine as "free" charge ports for our Pebble's

    •  

      Build your own DropBox by plugging in a USB memory stick.

      Other uses include plugging in a printer to share it, or a USB cell modem card.

      Can set up plex on an external hd to be read through router?

  •  

    Is it worth getting one of these when I'll be getting NBN in less than a year?

    •  

      I 'think' its NBN compatible unless someone wants to correct me?

    •  

      Pretty sure it will work with your NBN ( to the home or to the node?) and will be much better than the bog-standard one that you would get from your ISP.

    •  

      According to the whirlpool knowledge base, this modem/router is compatible with NBN:

      http://whirlpool.net.au/wiki/fttn_registered_modem_router

        • +2 votes

          This is very incorrect, ADSL (only) modems are not compatible when any type of NBN. Many VDSL modems are NBN compatible for FTTB/FTTN NBN, and most of those have WAN ports that allow them to function as a router for FTTP installs.

    •  

      I'd wait. In 6 months time the price is likely to be cheaper. Secondly this has an ADSL modem which you don't really need.

      • +1 vote

        Secondly this has an ADSL modem which you don't really need.

        You do need it if you're getting Ton & Mal's NBN.

        •  

          For FTTN you need a VDSL modem, which this is not.
          Oops, I thought this was the T-Link modem which was ADSL only.

          As for the NBN with 84% connecting at 25Mbps or less they won't be experiencing any perceptable difference between FTTN, HFC & FTTP, but there are other forums for debating how our politicians have failed us.

        •  

          @mathew42: The spec's for this modem say that it is a VDSL modem?

        •  

          @mathew42: if they can't meet 25mbps for certain premises, they provision 12mbps so in a way they definitely have failed us

    •  

      Router only one will be cheaper as well. I paid a lot less on another sale. Just wait and pick one up down the track

    •  

      Be aware that some ISP's provide modems as part of the contracts you sign with them, I'm thinking specifically of TPG, they have a Netcomm modem that they send through. This one would obviously be better but not necessarily in super noticeable ways. Might be something to consider if you are strapped for cash.

  •  

    Will this work with Telstra velocity? Such an uncommon service can hardly find info on it!

  • +2 votes

    Don't forget to update the firmware…

  •  

    So I am getting what I believe is FTTN soon. Just wondering if this is suitable for FTTN?

    I don't even know how FTTN works haha. Its not the same as FTTP is it? - As in they don't come and install boxes etc inside, it just goes through your phone line for FTTN doesn't it? - So you would still need Modem capability?

    Also I always thought these were just routers and you still needed a modem? Is this not the case anymore?

    •  

      No, this is a modem router for fttn. You only need this for fttn. R7000 is the router only version.

  • +1 vote

    I have this. Used with adsl until fttn came along. Now using with Telstra nbn fttn with no dramas. Had problems with apple devices dropping wifi but turned off QoS and another feature that is on the same page as QoS and it was all fine since then. Very solid connection for us. I get 100/40 as the node across the street!

    How does this compare to the Asus 68U in terms of modem speeds and wifi quality?

    • +1 vote

      ASUS is the better router, but not as good if you are on a long line from your exchange. The D7000's Broadcom chipset is supposedly better for longer lines.

      From Whirlpool
      The amount of features , bandwidth monitoring and limiting , cloud services , traffic analyser , 3g/4g capability and android tethering , plus the merlin firmware.

      I have the ASUS AC68U and it's just the best home router I have ever used. It's also more expensive than the R7000 (router version, no modem).

    • +1 vote

      I had the Asus DSL-AC68U modem router, as a router it was excellent, however there are apparently the modem has compatibility issues with FTTN nbn. I had major issues where every time I would connect it to my phone line it would crash my port and I would need to spend the next hour on the phone with TPG tech support. I tried it 3 times and each time it crashed my port, so I ditched it for the D7000 and it has been flawless for me.

  •  

    I have DSL N55U and the wireless is playing up. I'm thinking of replacing with this but I read this modem router is not user friendly when it comes to setup. And even though is NBN ready but does it really up to scratch. I'm still on ADSL currently but will eventually moving toward NBN.

  •  

    Will this router let me hack the NBN and run multiple connections for moar sped?

    /s

    •  

      Yes it will convert you FTTN to FTTP. But don't waste your time with the NBN. Mine has magically connected to me to the SABRENet network and I'm still on ADSL. It's amazing.

      PS. I hope you weren't being serious

  •  

    Can someone tell me if I'm better off purchasing the modem+router or router version for someone that currently has ADSL2+ and is getting NBN FTTN this year?

    I am getting the ASUS RT-68U or the DSL-68U (modem version)

    •  

      Really depends on your current modem router setup. I personally dislike having multiple devices so if the price difference is pretty minimum I would opt for the DSL-68U.

  •  

    Quick question for tech savy people, I got this modem and I want to connect this to my PC wirelessly. I am thinking of getting TP-LINK's TL- WN723N or WN723N. Anyone knows which one is better between those 2? Or is there a better adapter out there in this price range? Thank you.

  •  

    Not the first, probably not the last with these routers.
    Make sure you upgrade the firmware ASAP:

    EDIT: Scrap that- D7000 is not affected

    This was a great deal considering the 64BG USB memory. Best I could find was $228 delivered with no USB. Do you reckon better to wait for a new deal? I am not in a rush…
