I invested in the router to help resolve wifi dropout and wifi range issues over the standard netcomm router that orcon where offering. With the comination of the more powerful internal amplifier and the 4 external aerials we are gettin 4 to 5 bars in all rooms and to theother end of the house and even outside the front door. Our previous netcomm dropped down to 1 bar at the far end and no signal outside. Definately extremely happy with the purchase and once I upgraded the firmware the VLAN 10 tagging (which moat nz fibre providers use) it became a selectable option in the routers interface, from there 1 min to full up and running.

Good router with an easy to use set up, one issue - Without setting up QOS the the Wireless traffic does have high latency, after making those changes it's amazing, overall a great device and you won't regret buying it!

Connected it to my ISP's modem with an Ethernet cable and we were flying. Downloaded the latest firmware and upgraded 1.04b. (1.05 is available?? but won't upgrade to it.) Would have preferred a Modem Router (had I thought of that) so as not to have a modem connecting to a router all in one room, but we now have WIFI throughout the house and the zones we had the the worst/no signal we now have 75 signal. Very happy with the product.

After a couple of days of frustration I have finally gotten my unit working, it turns out that this particular model is fiber ready on firmware V1.04 only, I was having massive connection issues with version 1.05. Once I reverted back to 1.04 the unit works perfectly.
