Better as a sinker

Bought this due to its specs what a dissapointment. Wont connect to FTTN or FTTB or FTTC, have been back and forth with DLINK who are useless, Optus are useless. Its an expensive paperweight that doesnt work with any Australian services EXCEPT if you want to use it as a router alone OR with ADSL if it was still available waist of money Show details

Works as a router, but not a modem

I bought this modem/router to replace my Telstra Gen 2 Smart Modem. I could not get it connected to the internet regardless of what I tried. I contacted Dlink and they gave me a standard response (i.e. explained how to do a default setup, which I had already done a number of times). They have not responded to my follow up questions. I have now got it working as a router which means I am still relying on my Telstra modem to provide internet. If I wanted this type of setup I could have saved $100 and bought a router. Show details

quicker more reliable than the ISP router

Quicker more reliable it might be a bit hard to set up if you don't know what you are doing but once you do you will love it the coverage is amazing it covers the whole house just fine Show details

Garbage, expensive good for nothing but a small boat anchor. Wish I read reviews first

Doesn't connect to my provider after 3 hours of trouble shooting painstakingly through the overseas based technical support thats typical with many isp's with no success. Went back to the store to return it after 3 hours of troubleshooting, Wish I had read these reviews before buying I would have saved the round trip plus the 3 hours of stress. I reconnected a free modem I had which worked immediately.
I don't recommend this product. Show details

I can't connect it to my FTTC nbn. The wizard seems very basic and wont connect to the nbn. Used to work for ADSL

The wizard is very basic and wont connect to the nbn. Used to work for ADSL. The manual is obtuse and there are no youtube guides. Support is vacant. I will not by another D-Link ever again Show details

Won't connect with iinet

Disappointed as purchased it to replace the iinet supplied (Technicolor) which can't handle more than 4 devices connected to wifi and it won't connect to iinet. Have to return it after 4 hours with Tech support and a further couple of hours myself trying to troubleshoot it online. It says for NBN on the packaging but its a no. Hopefully I can return it as purchased online otherwise the 4 aerials may allow it to double as a boat anchor albeit probably not heavy enough for that. Show details

Very dissapointed

Returning this tomorrow, multiple wifi devices need to be manually reconnected after a few house of non use. Never had a problem previously. Also, unable to use special characters within the wifi password is an absolute joke. Gives you the idea what sort of 'technology company' d-link is. User interface is very limited and terrible to use, e.g. refreshing the page takes you back to the login page. Brand has massively gone downhill, look elsewhere. Show details

Disappointed

Quite disappointed, modem was dead on arrival, powered up but wouldn’t connect, even had NBN co come to site as my ISP thought it was an issue with my connection. Couldn’t get the modem to work, super disappointed. Show details
