I have recently upgraded to the Ultra Fast NBN and I have a FTTP connection. To take full advantage of the higher speeds my current modem the TP Link AC1200 is acceptable but not ideal for the new speeds of the Ultra Fast. I decided that I would upgrade my router to take advantage of the faster speeds. I refered to the list that TPG have published on there website when making my selection which lists the X5460 as a router that has been tested for the Ultrafast. So I purchased one from JB-HiFi hooked it up, turned it on, input the required details in the set up wizard and "no connection". I have since been through the labourious process of support from D-Link with the final conclusion that the Router was faulty. I returned the router to JB Hi Fi and was agonising over whether I should go for the refund or try another X5460 as it is possible that it was just a faulty router. I checked the TPG web site and it still had the X5460 on its list of routers for the Ultrafast NBN so I decided I would try again and with no success. I am about to go through the process of elimination with D-Link support to find out whether I have another faulty router. I noticed that another TPG customer had similar issues. Bought 2 off D-Link X5460 units before trying another brand. My question is - Is there a real fix for this issue or do I take the unit back to JB Hi Fi again. I see some replys on other posts with suggestions about changing settings but these are things that D-Link support made to me on the first unit. Do I really have another dud router or is the a quirk in the TPG connection settings that regular routers are not set up for??
