I just bought one of these off TradeMe and will get it next week. I was just wondering what was the speeds it supported? E.g Is it N300 etc? How to work the DLNA?
Any other relevant information? Thanks.

Wireless supports B/G/N

Also supports connecting to your printer/external hard drive via USB and backup internet service via vodem stick.

Also supports VoIP if you know what you are doing.

Its either 65 or 150Mbps (if I remember correctly), depending on the configuration.

The advanced menu on VBC modems allow you the change a lot more options. The default login is the idiot-proof login and severely limits what you can change. Let me know if you need the advanced login and/or a manual in PDF format for this modem I will email it to you.




Banana?

Plus I'm pretty sure they only work on vodafone.
I don't think it lets you put anything other than @vodafone.co.nz as the PPP username.
I could be wrong and maybe thinking of the Telecom 2Wire modems. I know one of those two is locked as to what username you use.

No, you can configure anything you like in the VBC - it is heavily branded for Vodafone but isn't locked as far as I am aware. The Telecom 2Wire definitely is though, it automatically adds @xadsl.xtra.co.nz to the end of anything you type in thr PPP username AFAIK.

Does this modem/router support VDSL stuff? Future-proof?

Also when accessing a HDD from the Router, it is slow browsing through files, but not when you play a video. Im guessing thats just the router. Any ideas?

No VDSL at I don't believe Vodafone offers DSL, though, if I recall correctly they are trialling it.
As for the the browsing HDD, it could be the HDD latency or read speed that is the problem.

Anything is better than what I have: 2Mbps! You have 8.8Mbps.

ok thanks, I am on Slingshot with that modem/router. So will the modem/router support VDSL when it is rolled out?

I have one of these and it's Wireless N 300Mbps. Use to have a 1TB WD HDD attached but found it a little slow unless you use the FTP option so moved it back to my server.
