How many 2.4Mhz clients can the modem accommodate?

FrequentFlyer12

I am told the amount of Wi Fi connected devices is virtually unlimited, but probably about 512 devices connected live at any one time is via the 2.4 Ghz Wi fi band is about the limit. In the real world I have seen no more than about 30 connected devices at any one time with my NF18 router. The 5Ghz band with Wi Fi 6 may perform faster, but may have less range. The efficiency of the Wi Fi connection is limited by the speed of the feed of the internet whether it be NBN Tier 100 or whatever and if the Wi Fi Band in use by the device is congested or due to neighbours and others along the road or street.

Some NF18AC routers setup for Hotels, Coffee Shops and Restautant's may provide the Wi Fi connections for their customers as Guests and operate off the Guest Wi Fi Settings and Guest Network Password with Isolation. They may use their EFTPOS and Business Transactions and Internet on the main Wi Fi Network with High Security MAC Addressing setup for each MAC Address on each EFTPOS Device or terminal. They also may operate at NBN 250 Tier for the high speed. The number of clients on either the 2.4Ghz or 5Ghz band able to be connected can be controlled by the NF18AC Router.

If you wish to get further concise and more detailed information, I suggest you may wish to contact Netcomm Technical Support.

I note that the most recent review was 7 months ago, and the majority are 12 months plus.
Does this mean that no-one uses this model anymore. I am looking at NBN through an ISP who supplies the nf18acv. After reading these reviews I am not prepared to use this model unless huge improvements have been made especially to Wi-fi

I believe most ISPs (outside of Telstra & Optus) generally provide rubbish modems

If WiFi >>and<< NBN speeds are important to you, then stick with T & O

If you are prepared to do some extra work, then a reasonable ISP (I use Spintel), together with NF18ACV plus a good external WiFi/Mesh system works remakably well (I don't use mesh, just a decent WiFi Access point), & I usually have about 10 devices (5 WiFi, 5 wired ethernet), with no problems

YMMV

Thanks for your answer. Coincidentally I will be using Spintel as my ISP. I have decided to buy my own wifi router buying a TP-LINK ac1600 VR600 v2.. NBN being connected Tuesday afternoon hopefully all will be good. Will be replacing my existing fixed wireless broadband due to unreliable speeds.

How can I access my router settings I tried ths default password and username and it says wrong what should I do?

Anil P.

If you got the router through ISP, the login details will be set by them. It should have come with the box on a card or something. If not call the service provider and they will help you. Also, reset the router if you want and you should be able to use the default login details. Hope that helps.

As far as I know, CASA systems purchased Netcomm. The Netcomm name still appears on the product - I received a new one this last week. You can find it listed on CASA systems website but it's still a Netcomm on the photo. Don't know if the CASA / NetComm is rebranded could not find a photo...

I guess if you're only selling the one unit then eBay would be your best bet
