I have a I7-6700k cpu and a decent gigabit capable motherboard and my router is a dlink dsl4320l.

 

 

 

I just got switched to gigabit fibre through slingshot today and have only got speeds of about 190Mb Download and about 200Mb Upload speeds.

 

 

 

Using a wired connection from the ONT to the Dlink using cat 6 cable.

 

 

 

Can someone tell me what is up with that before i call slingshot again.

 

 

 

Cheers

Make sure your router has the latest firmware, however also keep in mind that D-link make pretty terrible equipment, and having gigabit ports is no guarantee it can handle gigabit wan throughput.

Thanks for fat reply. Yeah I'm not a fan of dlink anymore so I might invest in something great. Any suggestions?

It does have the latest firmware too

Go borrow a friends HG659 or if someone here is close to you they could let you use theirs. Proven modem to work with Gigabit and its CHEAP, Hence why i suggest..

Will do everything a consumer will ever need on their connection.

Just my opinion! Others will surely have other suggestions. But personally the best bang for buck is the HG659.

We had no end of issues with those netcomms with TCL around the merger time with VF.
If your PC can tag vlan 10 on the network card (Intel NIC can) you may still be bale to eliminate the router. Assign your own local IP etc etc. 

 

 

 

Branding wont affect it, How ever i would go for the Vodafone or unbranded ones. Bigpipe modem is good too! and only $100
@JoshBigpipe @IPv6pipe @BigPipeNZ can anyone buy your modem?

If it is of interest I'm selling a brand new Fritzbox 7490 modem - will do Gigabit internet speeds, has AC wireless (nice and fast, 2 phone ports, 4 Gigabit network ports, a USB port and features galore.

 

It's what 2 degrees and Orcon supply for Gigabit but should also work fine on slingshot.

 

It's was supplied to me by 2 degrees but I don't need it , so it brand new and unused with a full warranty.

 

$130 and it's yours.

I'd take that offer OP.  Please do a complete diagnosis yourself before you spend money as it could just be something simple. But this is a good modem at a good price.

Tempting but I prefer buying brand new. How would a Asus RT-AC68u hold up ?
