Apparently telecom is not using D-LINK anymore, instead they are using a brand called thomson.

I have used Dlink last time I used a router and found it quite good. I have nevef heard of thomson and they dont seen to have much infomation on their website.

Can anybody comment on the quality and security of thomson compared to Dlink.

Telecom used to use SpeedTouch modems made by Thompson - I've still got an old (purple) SpeedTouch 330... Laughing

Not something new.

Correct, Telecom is in the process of switching modem suppliers to Thomson. Apparently, the Thomson modems offer better performance to users who are 4km+ away from the exchange and do not need to be rebooted if DSL sync is lost.

Telecom Broadband Help Desk tech’s can log into these modems directly and help troubleshoot, without requiring the less technically minded customers out there, to get their hands dirty, so to speak.

Single PC Modem: Thomson ST536
Wireless Router: Thomson TG585

Customers may however still receive a Dlink modem / router if they signup to Telecom Broadband, or if the Telecom Broadband Help Desk arrange for your modem to be exchanged.

Thankyou for those replys.

Do you know what the difference is between the two brands as far as security / quality goes.
