Re: BYO Modem Settings

Sorry, I'm not sure. I'm far from an expert, I can only share what I experienced (on my HFC connection) when changing to AGL.

Re: BYO Modem Settings

You may find your Dlink has custom TPG firmware and is difficult to flash- but then again it may be easy. Try looking on the whirlpool forums for info on flashing it- if you get stuck. I'm glad I updated as the Deco is way more capable (built in homeshield, the two connected units for better mesh coverage, wifi 6, excellent parental controls etc.) compared to what I had.

Re: BYO Modem Settings

I got this (the 2 pack) https://www.tp-link.com/au/home-networking/deco/deco-x60/ I went for one of the older models as the HomeShield doesn't require a paid subscription. Their later version (called a different name) does IIRC. In our place the single unit does the whole place adequately - but I haven't tested speeds. It's located in one corner of the house too.

Re: BYO Modem Settings

Turn VLAN off- TPG group need it on, AGL don't use it. I couldn't access the VLAN menu on my old router so ended up buying a new one.
