Great value modem, runs smooth and fast
I bought this modem back in September 2016, for my upcoming NBN (FTTN) connection going live. The parcel with the modem duly arrived at the office, and I proceeded to mimic the settings on the incumbent modem. This allowed me to swap them, with pretty much no downtime.
At the time, the ADSL service was still running, and the VR600 picked it up without a hitch.
When the time came for the NBN service to go live... of course, bureaucracy had to intervene. The booking that NBNco arranged, came and went with that wooshing sound that we all know and resent. However, right on schedule, my phone line was deactivated (a first for the big T), so I was left with no ADSL and no NBN. Joy.
This modem has a special USB port in the back, which allows you to add a 4G mobile broadband dongle into it. So I did. And for 6 days, the VR600 distributed 4G internet to 6 computers throughout the office.
Since then, my NBN connection was activated, and aside from a few very minor hiccups, it has not failed me. The VR600 that I have, runs 6 computers and laptops, 2 phones, 2 tablets, 3 VOIP phones and 2 IP Cameras. It gets a little warm, but it hasn't stopped working. Ever.
I highly recommend this modem, and will be purchasing a second one for my home service, very soon.
