Better NBN Modem than the one supplied

The modem supplied for NBN is crap, all the cables now stick out the bottom and it does not sit flat, is it designed to hag over an edge ??

the wifi is also crap, about 20ft range.

 

i have to re route the new modem through my D Link modem router to get wifi working and usable.

 

cost me $500 today just for a new phone port to connect this mess that does not appear to be any better than what I had before, and worse if you want wifi.

 

maybe Telstra have a better modem

Re: Better NBN Modem than the one supplied

Suggest you look at something like an Asus RT-AC68U or better. They also have mesh capability.

 

Failing that Something like Google Mesh is very powerful and simple to use.

Re: Better NBN Modem than the one supplied

Thank you, but I already had a D-Link Cobra modem/router and I have linked the Optus modem to that and the wifi is restored across my home base.

 

Anyone having to move to NBN should be advised that if they have anything other than a simple one port connection near their computer then they will need to invest in a secound router to deliver the wifi service that the OPTUS modem cannot deliver.
