VDSL modem with RJ11 port

Dear community,
I would like to get a NETGEAR vdsl modem with RJ11 port to replace my ISP's tplink to improve the speed of my VDSL line. Could not find any online. Got few ones with RJ45 but I need the RJ11 one. Please help

   It would be strange, if true.  Where did you get your information?


   All I know is what I read in the papers, but the DM200 Product Data
Sheet says:

 

      o One (1) LAN Ethernet RJ-45 port
      o One (1) VDSL/ADSL RJ-11 port

 

   The DM200 User Manual "Technical Specifications" section agrees.

 

   I'll admit that the picture in the User Manual appears to show two
RJ45 ports, but that could be artistic license (or carelessness).

 

   Visit http://netgear.com/support , put in your model number, and look
for Documentation.  Get the User Manual (at least).  Read.

 

> [...] Still need to get also some reviews.


   A Web or forum search for D7000v2 might find some discouraging bug
reports.  My D7000[v1] freezes monthly.  The DM200 might have fewer
problems, but I've never touched one, so I know nothing.

Re: VDSL modem with RJ11 port

Vendors selling VDSL modem/routers are almost non-existent these days outside of ISP provided devices. Your best bet for a VDSL non-ISP modem router is the used eBay type market. The rest of the story is there's really no ongoing support for the few devices that are out there.

Thanks. Will check now on ebay and revert back to you for a technical review. Can you suggest a netgear vdsl modem Rj11?

   Has your (unspecified) "my ISP's tplink" a model number?  Has your
ISP a name?

 

   What is the rated/expected speed of your "my VDSL line"?  What speed
do you get?

 

   Does your DSL service use a bonded line pair?

   What led you to believe that some Netgear modem(+router) would
perform better?

 

> [...] Got few ones with RJ45 but I need the RJ11 one.

 

   Don't all Netgear DSL modems/modem+routers use an RJ11 port?

 

   What, exactly, did you find, where?  The (relatively recent) "D"
models include these:

 

      DM200 (modem)
      D6220, D6400, D7000[v2], D7800 (modem+router)

 

   Generally, Netgear seems to have lost interest in DSL.  I'd look
elsewhere.

Re: VDSL modem with RJ11 port

It's a TP LINK VG5612 by TOPNET (an ISP in Tunisia)
 

   What is the rated/expected speed of your "my VDSL line"?  What speed do you get?

My line is VDSL 20mb. I am getting 14mbps down stream and 500kbps upstream Smiley Sad

 

   Does your DSL service use a bonded line pair?

No it's not a bonded pair.

Online reviews compared to the tplink I got from ISP

No some are having VDSL RJ45 which is strange. The DM200 has RJ45

models include these:

Found  DM200 (modem) and D7000[v2] but could not buy on amazon not available. Still need to get also some reviews.

Re: VDSL modem with RJ11 port

Appreciate all the efforts!
Good to know, will check the documentation now.
Found also the VDSL D7800 a bit costly but it may improve my connection.
Still have no technical proof a Netgear vdsl modem would increase the speed.
What i know it that my TPLink compared to Netgear is far from competition.
Can you agree?

   I have no experience with TP-Link DSL modems, or VDSL, so my advice
must be limited to complaints about what I have used (or read about).

 

   My experience with Netgear DSL stuff (DGND3700v2, DGN2200v4, D7000)
has been disappointing.  The DSL modems were faster than a Cisco 678 for
7Mb/s service.  Not much good to say beyond that.

Oh so true.

You may even find a seller on eBay handling unused, open box modems. That how I got a DM200. I paid about the same as I had already paid for the same device in the retail chain (Amazon).

 

Using something like a DM200 makes sense because you can then put it in front of a standard router. There are several good reasons for doing that, not least a wider choice of router features.

 

The tragedy is that too many DSL ISPs, such as BT in the UK, provide modem/routers that you simply cannot put into modem only (bridge) mode.

Just another user.

My network DM200 -> R7800 -> GS316 -> PL1000 -> Orbi RBR40 -> Orbi RBS50Y -> RBS40V
