Hi everyone, so my networking knowledge is little to none and I was wondering whether I could change the crappy NetComm wireless router to something better. For years I held back from upgrading my router simply because a TPG call centre guy said he doesn't recommend it because if any problem arises, TPG can't communicate with my network to diagnose or something like that.
Fast forward to today, this router frequently drops out and it gets quite annoying and sometimes costly. I'm pretty sure its not the NBN because whenever I connect an ethernet it's fine and stable.
So I was wondering whether what the TPG guy said was accurate and whether I can upgrade my router.
And if so, what specifications do I look for when buying a router for the NBN (I use NBN 50) and what routers do you guys recommend (don't really have a set price point, just not those overkill ASUS ROG routers)
There is the option where I can get a TP-LINK router (AC1200 I think) where it supports 5GHZ for free with a lock-in contract and then have a wifi mesh if needed but I'm not sure
