If you dont care about wifi getting 200 meg or you only have crappy 802.11n devices then the cheapest will be fine - the rt-n56u - delivers 208/208 on a bigpipe 200 meg connection to wired. Low 100s to a wireless 5GHz 802.11n device and about 10 to a 2.4Ghz device in my testing of it.

The ac models will only really help if you have ac wireless on your devices. They can all get the full 200-210ish that you will get on a wired connection, its just the speed of the wireless that will vary on them. Dont spend heaps if you only ever browse on phones because that wont really help much.

You should be getting the HG659 if you're on 200, you should complain again.

DarkShadow: You should be getting the HG659 if you're on 200, you should complain again.


if your on the 200/20 plan or anything gigatown (if applicable) then you should have revieved the HG659, not the HG630. Complain and point out this page on their site
down the bottom under "tell me more about the free modem"

you have to make sure you are on the 200/20 plan before you complain through
