Team GZ

 

Recently looking into Voyager as a UFB provider, previous thread provided good information on the ISP as a whole.

 

Question Two: i would like to get opinions on the router offerings or if there is something better i could be purchasing.  Where i stand currently there are two immediate options

 

Apparently this Router is fiber ready (Using the Gig port i assume?)

 

  • Purchase the Router on offer at Voyager Zyxel8324 @ $225

Or....something else entirely.

 

Reason i am asking opinions on here is that I'm a pretty simple creature with this sort of thing, it either works or it doesn't.

 

Most connections are WiFi (including Sky), although the likely best install point for fiber will be behind the TV and thus Sky can be moved to the LAN.  I notice the VF router is 10/100 on LAN i don't think this would be an issue, currently WiFi with a short buffer works flawlessly.

 

Between those in the know with this sort of equipment, whats good out there?

 

 

 

Cheers

 

RB

Information wants to be free. The Net interprets censorship as damage and routes around it.

Probably stick with the Vodafone Station, 10/100 ethernet is fine for most uses, especially compared to wifi.  Only get a better one if you find it not working well, or you're on a 200 fibre speed plan.  You may find the wifi a limiting factor with the vodafone station, as it does not have 5Ghz 'ac' wifi so will be limited to about 60mps, less than the fibre connection

 

I'm using a hg659, which is what Vodafone and Spark now give out with new fibre connections.  It's 1 gig ethernet and ac wifi so no limitations for me.  You can pick one up for $50 on trademe.
