  • Should go well with the new NBN gigabit plans.

    Edit: $199 at hn! https://www.harveynorman.com.au/tp-link-ax1500-wifi6-router....

  • Import may have problem with power adapter.

  • A basic rule for domestic home use is to never purchase routers from other regions and the reason being region locks and wireless restrictions. YMMV.

    • Got my Netgear r7800 from murica. Recycled power supply from old r7000. Is running great with openwrt.

      I haven't seen region locks before but some regions do use different wifi channels

    • Not surprised but as usual disgusted that you're being voted down. Not only can this limit your functionality but technically it can make you non-compliant with regulations and laws that have very large penalties if enforced to the letter. You'd have to be very VERY unlucky but it could potentially go really badly. All to save $15 which you'll probably have to spend on a power supply anyway (or you can have a bodgey $5 international plug adapter and save $10). A hassle not a bargain when it saves you next to nothing.

      Whole different thing when you deal with hard drives and Western Digital (who'll provide you with the right adapter for nothing if you ask).

  • Will this be an upgrade to my Nighthawk X6 R8000?

    I've had a lot of trouble with the Nighthawk dropping out (I've installed a USB fan on top and it appears to have fixed these problems though)

    • The latest fw update to my R8000 caused this too. Went back to V1.0.4.28_10.1.54 and it seems to have fixed it mostly

      • The only issue with this fw is that it's from 2018, so I'm assuming it may be vulnerable to this

      • Mines been doing it on and off for about 2 years. It got worse with the latest update, spazzing out every few days. I put a thermometer on it and saw it was going above 50C on the case (so who knows how hot inside). Chucking a USB fan on the case holes has lowered the temp to below 27C at all times, and it hasn’t crashed once. But the solution is loud and the GF isn’t happy.

        • interesting… I just put a thermal imaging gun on it and mine is showing around 39 degrees…

          • @highon2str: Yeah that’s what mine rested at, but any load and it shot up. Usually the router died when we had a few streaming things happening at the same time. I’m probably going to order a quieter USB fan, take it apart, put some thermal compound on and heat sinks and see what happens.

            When it died it did this super weird thing where I couldn’t find some devices on my network for hours (even hard wired devices) and it wouldn’t let some of the wifi devices back onto the network until I restarted everything a few times. Sometimes I just had to wait it out for a few days. Shitty product.

            • @Burnertoasty: Ok I just dug up some old PC parts in the shed from the late 90s….. and soldered a 12V 60mm case fan to an old USB plug. Spins up nice and slow and moves enough air (for it's purpose). Plugged it into a standard USB port and measured current draw 0.05A @ 5V so safe enough to plug into the back of the router. Placed it face down on one side and after an hour the thermal drop is over 10 degrees!

              Might go and wire another one in parallel and chuck it on the other side of the router to cool both sides down.

    • I need to replace my r8000 too. It’s never been good but I’ve tolerated it’s bs for far too long now lol.

      • sounds like a few of us have the R8000 and are struggling :(

        • Yeah.. I'm so gun-shy about committing to anything to replace it cos it was expensive and not good, and I don't want to get burned twice :D

  • This won't come with Aussie adapter will it ?

  • The adapters are usually 110V-240V, so it's all good. Great find, op

  • Using one now. Bought it for about $150 last year. Haven’t had any issues with it.

  • Guys the Amazon AU reviews on this one don't seem too encouraging….

    Coming from the R8000 woes (see posts above), I'm not sure I want to buy this TP link only to experience similar issues??
