Wireless Router in Oz

    Recommended Posts

    HI Guys

     

    When you subscribe to Broadband do they provide you with a wireless router?

     

    Will our Netgear one work in Oz or do we leave it behind?

     

    Another one, when you sign up to Broadband is it a 12 month contract like here? If so, can you move rentals and continue the contract in your new place or do you have to pay it up to the end of term and start again.

     

    Trying to organise last minute stuff now, thanks in advance

    Hi,

    I am with telstra/bigpond, like uk BT, not the best but could get phone and internet sorted the fastest, a wirless router was extra with them, but yours will work here, may have to adjust a few settings but will be fine, had to sign a 2 year contract but can move it however many times you move for free and can change the plan your on too.

    Hi Mandy,

     

    I will get my husband to reply to your questions when he gets in from wotk tonight, he works for the mobile network three so knows about all this.

     

    When do you arrive here?

     

    Takecare,

    Use my netgear wireless router that I brought from UK with bigpoind- only probs I had is they send you a disc to install the broadband, sent hours trying to get it to work, it wouldn't, but when I rang the helpline the told me the disc was not required, and talked me through setting up my router.

    Thanks for all your replies guys. We are expecting to arrive in Adelaide on 25.02.09, all being well. Just waiting for house sale to complete, so tickets not actually booked yet. Everything else is in place though, so hoping we dont get held back

     

    cheers

    Brought our Netgear router with us and it works fine with no set up issues at all.

    Good luck with all the plans.

    We brought ours with us, and worked fine. We signed up to 12 month contract, then moved house after 6 months, and had to pay a relocation fee as we had been with them less than the 12 months.
