Speedtest record over WiFi for me:

 

-> TC4400 modem -> Netgear R7000 router -> Netgear R7000 WiFi 5GHz bridge -> PC on 1GbE

 

 

 

 

 

Was there any additional tweaking you had to do to get the R7000 to work with the modem? I haven't requested keeping a static IP so I assume if I want to keep using my R7000 I change the setting for 'Internet IP Address' from the existing static address to 'Get Dynamically from ISP'

 

Any other changes? Did you have to configure VLAN Tagging?

Installed 10 mins ago.

 

-> TC4400 modem -> HG659 -> Netgear R7000 router -> PC on 1GbE

 

Only change to the R7000 settings was to set IP to dynamic from ISP.  Attempting to turn on VLAN tagging stopped it working completely.

What firmware are you running on the Nighthawk? @ipv89 seemed to have good luck upgrading to Advanced Tomato and enabling cut through forwarding.

Hi guys.

 

 

 

I suspect a lot of you guys want to use your own router. If so the VLAN tagging needs to be set to 10 and 802.1p ( priority tagging) set to 0. If you guys have the HG659 login to it and check under Internet>internet setting > find the the Internet_ethernet> and click on edit and match those settings with your own router.  :)

Downer seems to be getting slammed.

My upgrade was requested last Wednesday afternoon. Still hadn't heard anything as of 30 mins ago so phoned Vodafone (as an aside, what am I doing wrong with Vodafone's phone numbers? Every time I dial I seem to get a different set of options or somehow end up talking to the wrong person).

I spent most of that 30 mins on hold while my friendly CSR was on hold with Downer. Turns out the install is booked for Tuesday morning (not that they've told me this!). Unfortunately it's too late now to reschedule tomorrow morning's meetings so had to rebook for Weds morning. Can't wait!

I did have to ask for the $100 3 day credit, but after checking (suoervisor I guess) it was applied without argument. Silver linings and all that. If you'd told me a month ago I'd have a month's free gigabit internet, there's no way I would have believed you.

I'm still running the NetGear firmware, updating as required.  It still does everything I need it to.

Hey Guys, long time no talk

 

I see Vodafone has finally got DOCSIS 3.1 700-900/95 mbps and 200/20 mbps plans for sale

 

My friend who is in the same work as me and has been stuck with 100/10 from Vodafone for years

 

asked a good question and though you all might be able to answer if she upgraded to the new FibreX 200/20 

 

what would real world results be like compared to the 100/10 I understand you can hit 200/20 within NZ 

 

but for offshore for the video consultations she will get around 17-19 mbps depending on the US server and 7-9 mbps Upstream

 

on the 100/10 Cable conection so my question is would she see much more (real world) improvement on the new fibrex 200/20 plan

 

Thank You

 

hope you all enjoying the sun today =) and the new installations are getting put in fast =)

 

take care

 

Jamie

Try thread above, although a few people have mentioned that the interconnects are being upgraded, and thats probably bottlenecking everything right now.

The max i got on the stock firmware was around 730mbps. The WiFi was good. 

 

 

 

I upgraded to advanced tomato and got 950mbps but the WiFi was horrible. I dont get how a router as expensive is out performed buy the stock Vodafone offering. I am no longer using that router at all. If you upgrade to Tomato let me know and I can help if you need.
