Works great once installed


Purchased this as part of a recommendation from my internet service provider. The instructions that came as part of the package seemed easy. However, my install didn't require some of the detailed steps. It was as simple as plugging in the Ethernet cable into the nbn box. A revision of the booklet would help with new nbn installations. However once up, the modem works a treat with incredible speeds!!

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

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.

Good modem


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.
