Ah yes - I just thought line stats and didn't pay much more attention, but you're right.

Also noticed the GUI doesn't seem to load without an active DSL connection in Safari (Mac and iOS), but Chrome is OK. Bit odd.

It's giving a 404, so I'm guessing they've pulled it for some reason.

TP-LINK have released a beta firmware for the VR900 for Sky's MER protocols, I've got it if anyone needs it, or just email TP-LINK, they also said the firmware update will be officially released very soon :)

Thanks for that info.   Good news for people on Sky :)

.G.INP is supported

Youre correct andy.  It was -  jid tested on a g.inp line  ???

File is downloading OK for me, but I won't be able to install it until later as my Youview box is recording a streamed channel at the moment. Will post back if I find any problems.

I'm getting very poor DSL download speeds (6-10mbps) on this build (upload seems fine). Swapped it out for a BTHH5 and downloads are back up at 33mbps... so not a line or service issue and pretty sure previous build was working fine.

Update: seems it is in fact a BT service issue and not the router/firmware

I used the VR900 on Sky for 3 days

I connected first time and the wifi throughput was impressive, however it would disconnect 3-4 times a day

I did an RMA and I'm now back to my trusty HG612

Not sure if it's of interest, but there's a review of the VR900 on Hexus.net

I've got Sky Fibre 40/10, purchased the VR900 to replace HG612 and SR101...mainly to improve wifi and use an all in one box.....my findings...
*Connected straight away using latest firmware "150909" sync'd at 39998
*No improvement on range /speed on 2.4ghz WiFi over SR101....must be my house?
*5ghz is great but tails off quite quickly...
* it's been connected for 4 days, up to now zero disconnects...solid....but seem to be getting error pkts.....less than one per hour....but still errors...
* line stats, or lack of them, leave a lot to be desired...may be TP-Link will improve these with the next firmware release...

Am I happy with my purchase....no, not really...as the "fantasic WiFi" promised for the VR900....isn't...at least in my house, should have saved my self 124....

Is it possible on this router to setup connection to the webgui on a HG612 over LAN1? I've seen a few guides for other routers but can't work it out on this one...

That link, as of c.a. 1600 hours on Friday 27th November 2015, just gives a "404".  :(
