Hi guys. Has anyone out there managed to get the netgear d6300 router successfully working with Spark fibre internet????

Done alot of googling and have found nothing that works for the d6300 only other netgear models.

Please help with some configuration settings or something.

Cheers in advance 😁

According to the FAQ, it doesn't have VLAN support, so it won't work.

 

Any reason the Spark supplied one can't be used?

 

EDIT: That's essentially an ADSL modem you have, and while it can be configured to use an ethernet WAN, it doesn't have the basic features you require.

I am really wanting to run the router alongside the spark supplied modem for the gaming and streaming attributes the d6300 has to offer.

I have seen posts on this forum with people who have successfully managed to get the combination working and I am throwing up a flag to see if any of them can help or share their settings

Putting another router in as well as the Spark one is only going to degrade performance - it's one more hop, and probably another layer of NAT, neither of which could be considered beneficial for gaming and/or streaming.

 

What gaming / streaming attributes does the D6300 offer over and above the Spark one?

 

As for previous threads https://www.geekzone.co.nz/forums.asp?forumid=66&topicid=171179 seems to be the only one where someone claims to have got one working, but has neglected to provide the detail of it.

also discuss this, but there doesn't seem to be an option to VLAN tag the ethernet WAN, so it can not work.

So how have you connected it up.

 

Is it connected directly to the fibre ONT, or connected to the Supplied spark router?

 

Has it just been set up as an access point?

So you're just running it in double NAT behind the HG659b? That's a less an ideal setup.

 

What aspect of the router is it that you like? This device is far inferior to the Spark HG659b in every aspect.

I can confirm the D6300 won't work on Voda/Spark connections directly due to its lack of VLAN tagging.

 

 

 

As stated above though the D6300 is inferior to the HG659 that Spark does/can supply.
