Wanting a router with Higher Transmit Power

Level 2

Hi TPG Community - Anthony here from Melbourne


I currently have TPG NBN to the premisis and am using the router: N300 WiFi Gigabit Router NF7


It works fine but the signal doesn't reach where I want it to go (I have made sure there are no obstacles and clear lines of sight etc so that wifi signal gets through, but its still weak).


I'm hoping to get a TPG prescribed router that has higher Transmit Power.


Does anyone know of one?


Cheers Anthony


Hey, @adillon 


We created an article that you may use as a reference for looking for a 3rd party modem-router. Kindly check the link below.

Note: Only internet will work using a 3rd party modem-router as VoIP will only be available using a TPG-supplied modem.

Hello, @adillon ,


We do not have information on third-party modem/router, it is best to check the reviews of each modem on Google or YouTube to know which modem is bang for the buck.
