    Postage was about $12 to most postcodes I put in

  • i have no idea what's the use of gigabit WAN port !

    • If you have devices connected upstream most likely. Or if you're interested in future proofing.

        NBN

    • Everything on the gigabit network will be able to transfer files and stream really fast.

      You could hook up a central NAS box and backup all your systems in no time.

      Will not affect the NBN much as normal 100mbit is faster than most peoples connection for a long time.

    On clearance at Dick Smith for $59. (Well is at my local - Wangaratta, Vic)

    Also qualifies for a free modem as per http://www.ozbargain.com.au/node/90845
    Not sure if Kogan qualifies, but DS certainly does.

  • I'm thinking to improve my wireless reception in my lounge room and have a ethernet port which is connected to my foxtel. The Bilion router is in the computer room at the front of the house which feeds that ethernet port. So can I use this item?

    • From what you said you have this set up
      Billion->ethernet port->foxtel

      Now you can

      Billion -> Ethernet port -> D-Link DIR-645 -> Foxtel ( and 2 empty port)

      You can turn off the radio on the billion and just use the D-Link as the only WLAN to reduce interference

    Excuse my ignorance but is this just a 'booster'

    My mum currently has a wired modem and wants wireless in the house.

    I have a Bob from IINET that does that trick, but will this allow her to get wireless internet at home or do I need an actual wireless modem/router (sorry for the stupid question)

    • +1

      This is a wireless router (no included modem). She can plug the ethernet cable from her existing modem into the WAN port of this router and share the internet connection wirelessly.

  • I would like to have gigabit LAN around the home, how do you guys think this performs compared to straight switches? (consumer level, not enterprise)

    • How many ports do you need? This router has 4. For about the same price ($50) you get 8 on a consumer switch. This would be the biggest difference.

  • Lol that's a pretty funny looking router, I was expecting the rectangle look.

  • yeah, gone are the days when you could just glance at the photo and see its a router lol.
