ADSL2+ Modem/Router Recommendations

Recommended Posts

ABG   

I'm moving home over the weekend and sadly the new abode has neither cable nor NBN.  Can any of the tech gurus here help me choose a modest ADSL2+ modem/router that will cover a typical 3 bedroom apartment?  I don't really need the latest, blazingly fast unit available - just something that is stable and has good coverage with at least 4 ports.  I'm using a cable modem/router that was supplied to me by Telstra last year when they upgraded my old unit.  It's just perfect, except it doesn't work as an ADSL modem.

 

Because the new place doesn't have cable, I'm moving away from Telstra probably to TPG in an attempt to get better bang for buck.

 

Thanks in advance for any help/suggestions.

Won't TPG supply you with a modem/router as part of the deal?

I'm going for a no lock in contract.  I can buy a Huawei unit from them for $100.  I was wondering whether there's better options out there for the price.

I have one for sale here in the forums. It's a Netgear AC1200 wireless router modem. 

For $70 it's new not used.

PM me if interested.

I'm using a TP-Link Archer D9 in my 3 bedroom townhouse ... Coverage is pretty good even in my backyard. I was never a TP-Link fan but I must admit I got no complains about this modem/router unit.

I have one at home you can have for shipping + donation to SNA if you want?  I'm away until Thursday next week but let me know if you want it. Was using it in 4bd house until we switched to NBN

Bugger.  I've been too busy with the move to see all the replies to this thread.  I ended up buying a Billion modem on the recommendation of one of my eldest son's mates who is an IT wizz,  Thanks for all the replies.

This post popped up rather conveniently for me. Debating whether to spend some $ on a dual band router for home. Cheap TP link modem doesn't cover house and completely chokes when the kids get on iPads which is rather frustrating when Spotify and Chromecast start dropping out. Have to wait till September to go back on cable unfortunately.

Thanks for the offer Deano, would be keen to give it a try if you're in the Melbourne area.
