Good modem for the first year. But...

published

On the first year using it on HFC NBN and it was very good on speed and range. Now I have consistently getting my 2.4g wifi network drop out on my phone and my PC couldn't detect 2.4g network. Have been reset seven times and try a lot way to fix it but it is still the same. Spending over a $400+ modem all I wish that it will last me for a few years. But sadly it did not....

Purchased in June 2018 for $450.00.

Good for 18 months use only

published

At around the 18 month point it started doing weird things with wifi and nbn that required rebooting to get a good connection with both. Swapped it over with another d7800 and incredibly had the same issues. Went back to a Netgear AC1750 and all perfect. So D7800 nit goid value at all.

Spent a lot on this... overall disappointed

published

I've been having wifi issues for years with my Apple setup, so decided to invest on this modem to solve my problems. It didn't really help... I'll admit my apartment has solid concrete walls, but for $500 I'd have expected this unit to be able to penetrate the walls by a few meters. I struggle with reception in the bedroom, which is only about 5-8m from the modem. Should have just stuck with the unit TPG provided.

Is it ready for NBN?

Yes, but the router has multiple firmware issues and it's not worth the risk for such an expensive product. Look elsewhere.

I have NBN over copper via old phone line. Will this modem router connect to this?

Yes this router will work with NBN FTN.

Yes it will. Just remember you only get free customer support for 90 days. After 90 days of purchase if you have any problems you will not get any assistance. I would search for a cheaper alternative. This is very expensive and your not getting your money’s worth with this product.
