Netgear wireless n cable gateway VMDG280

Ive had this VM wireless for several months now and I'm having nothing but trouble,
My internet always disconnects I have to reset the router 3times a day, it runs as slow as anything
My mobile connection is just as slow
Please sort this out otherwise I'll be leaving

Re: Netgear wireless n cable gateway VMDG280

see here the post by ceptic, its improved mines reliability but the range is still rubbish

id advise using a free app such as wifi analyser to see what other wifi is operating near you so you can pick the most suitable channel, on one of the channels on mine i get connection ok but no actual internet whatsoever

you could try ringing retentions - 150 from VM phone option 5 option 2 - they are the i want to leave dept - they also do many other thinks

 

tell them you want a super hub but at no cost to you - if you are pleasant with them most things are possible - it may or may not improve what you have today wifi wise - but it gives the the option of modem mode which means you can add your own router and that will ceratinly solve all your problems assuming your connection is good and you dont have high utilisation in your area
