Excellent Router

Much better than the ISP supplied modem. Haven't had a reboot or drop out in 6 months. Happy with the speeds and reliability. Only thing is that it doesn't have VOIP built in so if you want to use an old analog telephone on the NBN you need to hook up a grandstream. Wifi range is decent, at least for a unit. Show details ·  1

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).
