Netgear D6400

Hi all.

 

I was wondering if anyone has purchased one of the above routers yet?

 

I currently use the Netgear WNDR3700v2 at present but am thinking about upgrading to a newer model.

 

Thanks in advance.

Re: Netgear D6400

Hi @python

 

We are using the D6300 on adsl. Seems like the only difference with the D6400 and D6300 is that the D6400 has a VDSL2 & ADSL compatible modem in it.

 

It's bigger than any of the Home Hub's and I think a bit bigger than the WNDR3700v2, though functionality wise very good for a domestic modem router.

 

It's been able to keep a stable sync for 30+ days on adsl, whereas when we used the Home Hub it would resync every couple of days or so.

Re: Netgear D6400

Might be worth confirming whether it is G.Inp capable or not.

Re: Netgear D6400

Having a look around, some say that it needs a firmware update which will then enable G.INP on VDSL2 and that it will be updated soon however there is also some evidence that it already supports G.INP on VDSL2 on the initial firmware.

Re: Netgear D6400

Yeah, I have read that about some say it is enabled and others say it needs the new firmware, That is Why I asked if anyone on here has got one.

 

Might be wise to wait a couple of months and se what others start to say.

Re: Netgear D6400

I have one and have to say it seems very stable by comparison with my HH4. All have noticed better Wi-Fi performance and even when multiple users are streaming movies everything seems to be buttery smooth. Setup using a Apple Mac was no problem.

 

I can't confirm G.IMP myself, as it has not been enabled on my cabinet yet, but it is clear from those who have performed tests this product already supports G.IMP. From other reports it also supports the BT IPTV services so seems a very good high specification router, ideal for those with multiple devices and users.

 

So far I am very happy but its current price may be a little too high for some, especially if they are not accessing with many devices simultaneously or do not need the advanced features, such as ReadySHARE and the ability to turn any printer into an Apple Airprint printer.

Re: Netgear D6400

Thanks.

 

How can I check to see if G.INP has been enabled on My cabinet?

 

They are a little expensive as you say.

My TP Link TD-W9980 was a lot cheaper at about £65

Re: Netgear D6400

But the TP Link TD-W9980 does not support G.IMP with the current firmware and the Wireless is only N600 whereas the D6400 supports AC1600 so is much faster. So not really comparing like for like. 

 

As I said, if you have the right hardware and therefore can take full advantage of the Netgear's advanced features, it may be worth the money.

It does with the Beta firmware available on the Kitz forum. Faster wireless is only useful for LAN traffic where the DSL speed is not the limiting factor.
