No provision to connect fixed line telephone
Wanted to replace my Gateway Modem for better wi fi and had no issues connecting to NBN however there is no provision to connect my household phone. The supplied splitter is useless for NBN.
Have since found out that you have to purchase next model up with two phone connection points. The lack of a facility to connect your household phone should be included in the promotional information
This is an excellent device.
In my experience this modem router is a very powerful device. I have been using this for about a month now, with ths arrival of FTTN NBN. I get very consistent sync speeds and the connection is very reliable. My house is composed mostly of brick, and signal from the other end was still very strong. Excellent device.
Haven't had an issue
Easy to set up, dual band modem from D-Link which is usually a good company to buy modems from if you look at forums about their firmware updates and ease of warranty claims. Using it as a main modem but i know people who do use it as a bridging modem and they've had a good experience with it also.
I bought this modem 1 year ago always had the issue from the beginning. Complaint to d-link couple of times and nothing got sorted.
Every now and then the signals drops out. Overall I wasn't happy with it ended up returning the product and never buying the dlink products again.
Already had enough with my old laggy modem so bought this just before the new year when it was on promotion - as a new year gift for myself ^*_*^
This product is very easy to setup, and has beautiful and friendly console, not quite get the advanced settings part though but that is not an issue at all for normal family use.
However, although it has 3 antennas, the signal in my bedroom upstairs is still not full.
Great Modem for decent price
Easy setup. Do not have to download any drivers, just plug and go. Impressive signal strength. Wi-Fi never drops. Phone stays connected after leaving 10 meters from premise (premise has really thick walls as well). Wi-Fi speed is relatively fast. By staying within 3 meters of this modem there is no need for LAN cable to maintain a great up/down ratio.
Bought this for my newly activated NBN connection as i didn't want to use the one the provider provides. Easy to install. User interface is simple, lots of nice features if you have more people in your house, such as speed limit on each end terminals etc. also has cloud feature which i am yet to figure out.
Does what it supposed to do
No complaints, easy setup with good coverage. Bought one two months ago to replace a stock router and am very impressed. Had no issues setting it up. Software is easy to customize . Good speeds, does not drop out no issues thus far would recommend to all happy buying all
Does the job, could be better
A reliable and easy device to use. Only took 10minutes to setup and get things up and running .little dissapointed with the wifi range, it does not reach more than 20m through the house. Interface via a url is easy to use and manage. device stays cool and is low on power consumption
Good NBN Router
Purchased this to replace Telstra NBN modem which kept dropping out. So far there has been no problem whatsoever. It is fast, does not drop out and does what it is supposed to. After so many problems with the previous modem and provider I am very happy with this purchase
Great mid range FTTN compatible modem
Very easy to set up, good speeds, dual band (companies should stop selling single band tbh), all for a decent price. Had to "upgrade" when I moved from a place with ADSL2 to another with only NBN as the internet option. At least this has backward compatibility (can use for both ADSL2 and NBN) if I move again to an area without NBN.
Easy to use and trouble free
I bought one about a month ago to replace a modem that dropped connections. It was super easy to set up and its been very stable ever since. There is a recent firmware upgrade that improves how the user interface works. Very happy with my purchase and would recommend it to others.
Cannot fault it
The PYTHON - Dual Band Wireless AC1600 Gigabit ADSL2+/VDSL2 Modem Router is stable and fast. Only got 25/25 but switched to the python and the speed improved to 85/35. Apparently, the Chinese chipset is ideal for FTTN connections where you are more than 400m from the pillar. Not a techy, but I guess the proof is in the pudding...
