    decent modem router, peeps at aussiebb recommend this

    •  

      its also actually very similar to the free modem with tpg… the vr1600

      with that in mind, just get one off ebay gumtree since people toss them once off contract

        The VR1600v is garbage. I had one and it'll automatically throttle the speed after a few days by turning on bandwidth control in the settings. iinet sent me a replacement and that one does the same. I've seen people complain on forums about it as well. It became a hassle going in and unticking the box all the time so I just got an asus dsl-ac68 instead. Works great and has built in vpn client so I can watch overseas Netflix on my TV using Nord.

          plenty using it on superloop & ABB without issue so maybe it's an iinet issue or their firmware

      Im switching to them in November. Had my eyes on the ASUS 1900 router. Will this TP-link one be fine its little cheaper than the ASUS one

    can someone point me the difference between this and https://www.pcbyte.com.au/store/product/tenda-ac6-ac1200-120...

    i am a basic user nothing drastic but cant tell the difference between different model. All i see is technical terms and price difference.

      This one has VoIP and VDSL/ADSL abilities, while Tenda one only a wifi router.

    I just signed up for nbn+phone, the rep from internet service provider sent me a guide for byo modem and have this one listed as high end modem Router.

    I'll bought this modem few months back when I switched to NBN and need modem that have VOIP function to continue using existing phone number.

    I'm with ABB nbn 100/40 even using 5.0Ghz the maxed speed I'm getting is 90Mbps-95Mbps.

    When I inside my room the 5.0Ghz is pretty weak the speed dropped below 80Mbps and it's 5-8 meters away from the router. The 2.4Ghz is even slow liked 10Mbps.

    Due to the slow speed and coverage I had changed to Asus GT-AX11000 and I'm getting 101-105/40Mbps.

    wish they would start upgrading the usb port included on these modem routers, i understand usb 3.0 has issues with noise on the 2.4Ghz network but how many new devices these days still use the 2.4Ghz network , just wish i could transfer huge VR files to my network drive faster

    any good deals on a VDSL modem router without VoIP? im switching to launtel at the start of next month and sure my Belong modem should be fine besides the hardcoded DNS settings but all my devices have DNS set manually anyway but i think i might either go back to my old iiNet budii lite in the draw collecting dust just so i dont have to remember to set DNS manually on new devices

      Tbh I didn't looking up for any good deal on VDSL modem router anymore after I bought the Asus GT-AX11000.

      I'll got the Asus GT-AX11000 for around $660 on eBay when some seller's doing 15% off. I'll been waiting for 3 months for this router to go below $600 but the price keep going higher and higher.

        you might need a $500 modem router but for me in a 2 person household that is overkill, i think will just go down the second hand ebay/gumtree/ozbargain classifieds

    I have a VR900 and I used it with Telstra NBN and it's just awesome!
