NZCrusader: Yep the wireless is garbage on this device.

Really bad...


i dont recall the exact price point, but wasnt the VB104W meant to be a bit of a cheaper VDSL capable device? 

that would surly run it into cutting corners, wireless is an easy one to cut.


it was $20 excluding postage


yep, so sub $100.. be glad with what you get out of it.. you pay for what you get..

depending on if mods are heavily used, at portaling time on vdsl even will be pushing that a tad if you get a few on :/

it worked fine on adsl, so i imagine VDSL will be 10 times better.

i tried hosting it on windows azure for a while, but the latency to the US was awful and i moved it back to my computer instead.

Got upgraded to VDSL 6 days ago. Having to reboot the VB104W almost once if not more per hour. All of a sudden the wi-fi drops. And won't reconnect. Plugged a single network cable no wi-fi and even that disconnects. I am unable then unable to ping the router. Only solution is to reboot the router. (Lights all look normal)

Even tried using a static IP outside of the DHCP range to see if that would help. It didn't

I have disable the logs and the anti-attack settings to see if that was causing the issue. Hard reset as well.

Now awaiting a replacement from Slingshot. They kept blaming it on the VDSL "tweaking". Really? is that why I can't ping the default gateway?

Anyone else had similar?

OH is not at all happy with my hard sell to her of better faster stable internet!


I also cannot set the IP forwarding as I get the same ACL issue. as previously described.

reboots that often many days in isnt likely to be DLM.. and would be very detrimental to a VDSL line profile..

Hello to all that have had (are having) issues with the port forwarding...
I too moved to Slingshots VDSL today and was disappointed that I couldn't forward ports 80 and 443 etc and was wondering if anyone had heard anything more about this update?

For now I'm using the DMZ option which I'm ok with for now as I run TMG.

i think those ports might be what slingshot use to remote into the modem

I got this modem on Friday. I have only been able to access .co.nz websites, with the odd .com.
Slingshot say its a firmware issue, and they will send me a new modem.
No premierleaguepass.com for me today, as that's one if the dead ones.......that's a whole different complaint!

Wouldn't it be better for everyone involved, if they just sent out a modem that worked to being with. What about all the non-technical people out there that end up with this junker!

That does not sound like a firmware or modem issue, what are your computer DNS settings?

I didn't think so either. But I went through changing all of the DNS settings with the Slingshot "tech" on the phone. I also changed them all myself too. Right now they are the factory settings.
