Hello. I currently I have a TP Link Archer VR1600v modem router, supplied by TPG some years ago, connected to my NBN FTTN service. The modem is getting pretty old now, suffers heat issues and I continually suffer NBN service dropouts. To rectify, I typically have to reboot the modem which fixes the issue for a period of time. Am I able to get a replacement modem, that is more up to date?
Thanks in advance.

Hi @baybyboyj12,

 

Welcome to TPG Community!

 

We were able to locate your account using your community details and it shows that the modem connection is stable.

 

It's been authenticated with the NBN server for more than a month straight. You might need to give it a quick rest to lessen the heat on the device.

 

If you are experiencing dropouts via a WiFi connection, then we've created an article that will guide you on how to improve your home network. You may refer to this article: Easy Steps to Improve Wi-Fi Connection In Your Home.

Hi I would like to report a similar problem with my modem Archer VR 1600.For the last few days the modem only shows green lights on the power, 2.4G and 5G. I have tried turning it off and on as well as pressing the reset with no effect or the re established of wi fi internet. Also the modem is hot as well when handling.Am I eligible for a replacement ?

 

Could you please look into my inquiry. Thanks
