Netgear D7000
« on: June 17, 2015, 03:25:13 AM »

This is a follow up thread to a link another member posted on the D6400 thread. This looks very interesting.

http://www.netgear.co.uk/home/products/networking/dsl-modems-routers/D7000.aspx

According to this article, It is released in the EU.

I spoke to Netgear and they are unsure when it is getting a UK release date and pricing to go with it.

Thanks for the link. That wasn't there a day or two ago so looks like it could be out soon hopefully. You thinking of getting it or sticking with the d6400?

Don't have the money at the moment, too much travelling then got massive tax bill then got screwed on a new contract job that got put on the back burner by HP, hopefully got new job soon with a different company, by the time I do have some spare cash am sure the D7800 will be out too and can decide then although I don't really need anything more powerful than the D7000.

I'll probably be getting it upon release. If it has the same throughput at the range my Asus does, The Asus will be sold on.

Many thanks for your input. Looks like they have both bases covered then!

Come down to 165 and stock tomorrow (not sure if a few units shipped yesterday or just  pre-order). Mine should be here next week.

My EO line has just had a cab fitted and I've ordered VDSL so will report back whenever my line is enabled.

Hi

Yes keeping an eye on this one as well.  My ZyXEL 8924 is proving good but only if left absolutely alone, unfortunately with working from home often and my type of work I'm needing to dip in to the interface quite a bit to add port forward rules etc, and 9 times out of 10 this works fine, the other 1 out of 10 the Web UI stops responding and a few minutes later the router crashes and needs rebooting which takes several minutes.  So every time I need to do something in the Web UI it is always with some trepidation. I've also had, maybe once every 30 days or so, an unexplained reboot, the last time this happened I was on a Skype conference call and it didn't look good to disappear for many minutes.

Regards

Phil

I noticed CCLOnline claim to have stock just now with others stating tomorrow. I'll be ordering it soon too I think

Does anyone know what Ebuyers returns policy is like? They have stock and can deliver tomorrow but after being unimpressed with the D6400 and being lumped with a non-returnable Asus DSL-AC68U,I just want to make sure I'm covered

Hi

Well by law the distant selling act comes into play so we have 7 days to inspect goods ordered online, and that includes opening them and trying them out and returning them if we want, sometimes companies don't not refund carriages.  How well they handle it and how easy it is with Ebuyer is another issue.
