Worst modem/router I have ever owned

Bought it October 2024 for my daughter, and it was good for the first three or so months.

Started getting dropouts which I thought was ISP/NBN issues.

Today, 21 May 2024 the internet connection was lost and with help of my ISP we could not get back online.

I connected my TP Link Archer VR2100v and we had internet connection.

A new modem has been ordered through ISP.

Definately not happy with it.

Will be returning for a refund.

I do NOT recommend. Show details

Questions & Answers

Sophia P. · AC1200 Archer VR400

Would this modem router work with a RJ-11 6P4C DSL cable? It comes with a RJ-11 6P2C cable.

Juzzy
Juzzy  

Yes, because DSL only uses a single pair, contacts 1, 2, 5 & 6 are unused.
A 6P2C, 6P4C and even a 6P6C will work fine as it is the same physical sized connector.

Thank you Juzzy for providing the correct answer, you beat us to it! Appreciate your assistance.

i have VR400 Version 1, there is no port to link your phone, but you can use this on FTTN, FTTC, HFC, FTTP NBN internet connection, it is a pretty good and reliable router too, 3 years warranty is very good.

Does this modem router have a limit for connected wireless devices? I've noticed somewhat frequent internet drops when powering on certain devices (printer).

jnu123

There is a limit, but is over 100 devices, try 2.4g instead of 5g to connect printer, I use cable to connect my printer to this to link. Internet drop may be the reason of your internet provider , are you using nbn fttn or hfc technology?

Kael
Kael  

Oh great, thanks. I have nbn fttn and I have it connected using 2.4g already. It happens when we send a print job on a laptop connected to the same network, but only occasionally (frequently enough to be frustrating).
