Good little router


Pretty satisfied with the router so far for its price (Discounted because the package was open). Just that there weren't many instructions detailed in how to set up the router in NBN ready mode (Unless the instructions were separate because it was opened and lost?). Happy with its performance so far though.

If you need help in knowing how to get connected
1. Use the cable provided for connecting no.1 LAN and then your port in your Windows pc.
2. Connect to the router and then open chrome/IE window
3. Type in
4. Login to router settings, admin/admin
5. On the left-hand side menu, click Operation mode
6. Change to "Wireless Mode"
7. Then run Quick setup and choose self configure, Dynamic IP, rest is easy.
Bobs your uncle.

Purchased in May 2020 at Officeworks for A$68.00.

Fair device that enable NBN connection with a good price
Wifi signal can roughly cover a 3-4 bedroom apartment but suffers from interference from stronger signal router
Use with care, centralised location at home and the router won't give any issue
Set-up is very easy, instruction included in the box

Great Product


It is an amazing product with a reasonable price tag. It signal strength is strong in a one bedroom apartment. The device is easy to setup and configure. Also, this device is compatible to use with the NBN service. The range and speed may be an issue in larger premises.

Very good


I live in a relatively large house and was told that I needed something additional so the internet could reach upstairs. However, I didn’t end up needing it and the internet works fine anywhere in the house. It was also easy to setup. I’ve had the modem for a few months and have never experienced any dropouts.

Easy to set-up, works straight out of the box


I purchased this, for $89.95, for my ADSL 2+ internet service when my Belkin modem stopped working.

It was so easy to set-up and worked flawlessly in minutes. It has 4 Ethernet ports, a USB 2.0 port and an RJ11 telephone port. The only drawback is it lacks dual-band Wi-Fi capability.

Overall, it's quite a reliable and user-friendly modem/router for the average home internet user on a budget.
