Hi guys,

I did some search on pricespy, there aren't many VDSL modem around.

Does anyone know where I can get one around North Shore/ Auckland?

I was looking at Zyxel's modem but seem like they were ran out of stock, kinda need it before Friday :S.

Thanks

If you're interested I have a second hand Zyxel I am looking to sell. I moved out of a VDSL2 area so I have no use for it.

Run that off the back of the VDSL modem and then to a router, http://pbtech.co.nz/index.php?z=p&p=NETTPL0701&name=TP-Link-TL-WA701ND-150M-Wireless-Lite-N-Access-Poi 

 

A VDSL modem that also has Wireless isnt cheap unless you get a fritz but you would need to order it.
That setup is about $250 worth but would do a good job and you have 8 Gigabit ports available on a switch.
Thanks.

My idea was run my old Linksy 120WGN after Zyxel P850 bridge them. So I can have a wireless solution within $200

I have been testing beta software on these and is working well in bridge mode. I'll flick you a PM later tonight.




Chorus has spent $1.4 billion on making their xDSL broadband network faster. If your still stuck on ADSL or VDSL, why not spend from $150 on a master filter install to make sure you are getting the most out of your connection?
