I was going to get a WRTP54G-AU but have seen in this forum that you may be supporting this model soon
If you are how soon would that be?
Thanks for the replys

I am using a WRTP54G and have been since May last year. It is supported.

Ignore that, did not read the title.




You can never have enough Volvos!

It is supported now, it is just not readily available via the distrubition Channels yet as soon as it is you are fine to use this, same goes for the SPA8000

It dosn't matter, if it is branded xnet all it means is taht it will already have our provisioning link setup in the device, if it isn't branded then all you will need todo is to put the provisioning link in your self.

maverick: [WRP400] is just not readily available via the distrubition Channels yet as soon as it is you are fine to use this...

ETA from Ingram Micro is March 20.

Price is about $10 cheaper than what WRTP54G used to be and all stock of WRTP54G has gone with back-orders 3 weeks away.

WRP400 seems like a very similar unit to the old model.  After reading thru the User Manual, it looks like only difference is a wireless setup button on the front panel.  Oh, and a USB port that cannot be used until a future firmware upgrade becomes available Undecided

Software functions are also pretty much identical, but there is now the ability to set QoS priority by LAN port and MAC address.

I had odred a WRTP54 befor i started the post but the supply said he had none. So i started looking around to see what else i could use.
The next day my supplyer said he had found one and has sent it. Its running now so thats what i ended up with.
It seams im not missing out on too much, maybe $10?
$168 delvered was the pice i payed, i think that is about the normal price if you shop around.

Cheers for the info
will be connecting the phone on monday

Hmmm, you can get them now :)




Chorus has spent $1.4 billion on making their xDSL broadband network faster and even more now as they are upgrading their rural Conklins. If your still stuck on ADSL or VDSL, why not spend $195 on a master filter install to make sure you are getting the most out of your connection?
I install - Naked DSL, DSL Master Splitters, VoIP, data cabling and general computer support for home and small business.

Thanks for the update -- I see that Ingram Micro have stock now.

Let us know how this puppy goes, in particular the stability aspect, and whether you think there are any significant differences from the WRTP54G.  Depending on what your thoughts are, I may look at upgrading myself Smile

Will let you know how it goes, just waiting for one of my customers to give the go ahead to install this. I ordered from www.acquire.co.nz which said "no stock" but it arrived the very next day.

Kenshiro: @coffeebaron

How's your experience with the WRP400? How does this puppy go?

I currently have this installed at a site that has rather marginal broadband. I am still having a few issues, but out of all the units I have tried at this site, the WRP400 has been the most promising. On any average to excellent connection, this unit should work very well. Much nicer to work with than it predecessor the WRTP54G. I also recommend a good router in half bridge mode into WRP400 over the all in one WAG54GP2v2, of which I had much trouble with (again, this is on a marginal ADSL line).

Cheers! I'm definitely gonna try and look for a WRP400. It still only appears listed on very few computer stores, a search on PriceSpy doesn't show many hits, and amongst those I have yet to find one that actually carries it in stock :S

Somebody's mentioned Ingram Micro: are they are a wholesaler? Their website seem to suggest requirement of having a commercial account. How much are they selling the WRP400?
