Re: Cable broadband - can use other brand routers like

That is  D-Link DCM 712 Voice-Enabled Cable Modem

Meaning as cable modem.

 

Are you going for long term usage, as this link will help you to reconsider.

 

Cessation of Cable Broadband

 

Starhub seem to be in partner with D-Link as mostly recommended.

Another link to router, also D-Link, link; also applicable to fibre broadband;

Cable Broadband offer with optional router

 

Check these links for self-help &or self-install

Broadband Equipment

 

It is best to find the router of your choice in order for Starhub to confirm if it is acceptable or not.

As many others are using their own favourite router for better broadband usage.

As beside D-Link, mostly are more prefer to  Asus (fibre broadband) and do not faced any issue.

Do note that it is best to get router with speed to at least capable of 1Gbps, that is in case you switch to fibre broadband.

Asus, D-Link, Linksys, Netgear

 

In Harvey Norman, there are a lot of routers with wider signal coverage going for $59-$400

In Starhub only router compatible to Cable broadband offered is D-Link DCM 712.

 

Has anyone tried using non-Starhub recommended routers and internet still runs well?
