I started a thread recently about Netgear's 90 day support. I got on to the retailer and they confirmed it (although it did seem to come as a surprise to them too).
I've respectfully suggested they might make some mention of this on their website as a word of warning.
We'll see if they actually do that since it would effectively lose them business.
However, my attention, regarding my frequent dropouts, has turned to my modem.
I'm on the BT Infinity 2 - box system with the little white modem.
They no longer produce or install these which makes life a bit more difficult, as replacement modems are quite expensive. (Unless you take a punt at EBay)
So IDNet are sending me a test modem to either eliminate this or verify that the modem is the guilty party.
So, thinking ahead, assuming the worst, that the modem is at fault, not the new Netgear router after all, I thought I'd investigate a combined unit and dispense with my Netgear router and stump up more ££.
So during my conversation with Nick on IDNet's tech support I asked him what IDNet were offering, and he mentioned a TP-Link AC1900 unit, but the only one I can see, either on IDNet's gaming pages or under their router page is the TP-Link Archer V900 which is NOT a modem/router and needs a modem. Also the markup seems way to much as the TP-Link is about £90 and IDNet mentioned £135.
Can anybody tell me exactly what they are supplying so I can check reviews etc.
Just to confuse things a bit further, i thought that these "combined" modem/routers were designated as VDSL or VDSL2, but my Netgear R7000 is classed also as a VDSL unit but it needs a router for BT Infinity.
Help somebody please - aaaargh!!
Also a sub-£200 AC1200 (min) combined unit recommendation? NOT Netgear please..
