Suggested by a company but not impressed
I don't know if this is the network, provider or NBN system that makes internet today worse then 3 years ago. The company instaling NBN suggested buying TP-Link, and the internet is just so unpredictable, on weekends it is so slow that I do not understand the point of having NBN? The box of the router does not have any hook so I can hook it up on the wall, they assume that I will have a shelf to put it on?
Great range and speed. Reaches the sheds!
What I can I say it was cheap and looks great in the kitchen. Has a fantastic range and well out does any NBN bottleneck with fibre to the node connections.
Excellent and good enough for domestic use (5-6 devices)
My previous modem used to be D Link python which was a great device, however after a year and half, it started getting dropouts frequently for some reason. After going through quite a few attempts and checks with D-link technician over the phone, D-link offered me a refund. I had a chat with Mate communicate service tech who recommended me of TP-Link VR600V after a couple of questions. I bought this router from Officeworks and since then I haven't looked back.
The router is easy to set up with a very few time dropouts so far (barely 2-3 in last six months).
I would rate this router for ease of set up, reliable and affordability. Five stars from me :)
- Verified purchase
Bought this router modem when I was having an issue with the TPG modem which they provided. now all good. it is working perfectly, smoothly. would recommend anyone to buy and try.
Purchased in January 2019 for $199.00.
so far so good
i just want to point out buying a new router wont help if the device on the other end have outdated wifi chips and if your isp dont support the speeds your router clams to output then whats the point in Australia really. my provider is LETSBEMATES there really good and with the tp-link i run power line adaptors on my main pc and i get 84 mbps after 6:00pm so far so good
Purchased in May 2019.
Excellent Router with a good price
Bought this router modem when I was having an issue with the provider supplied model (TPG/Huawei). I was thinking of changing the old modem but unfortunately I will lose my VOIP as I don't have the configuration for this. Instead I use the VR600V in bridge mode and use the old one as a modem only. The quality of the connection did change and much better than Huawei, I would like to use the VR600V as my modem-wi-fi but need to research on how to activate/settings of the VOIP.
Voip won't work
Internet wise, haven't had any drop outs yet and has great range compared to other routers I've used. My only issue is I've been unable to get voip working with my provider Spintel. Neither Spintel or TP-Link could solve the issue. I had a TP-Link VR200V before this and it was working fine voip and all.
-Great Wifi range (although the signal strength may seem weak as it shows 1 bar or so on my phone the connection is outstanding)
-Has 2.4GHz and 5.0GHz bands
-USB port sharing
-Built in answering machine to save to USB and many more phone options
