NETGEAR Nighthawk AC1900 VDSL/ADSL Modem Router Certified with CenturyLink

Hello, I recenlty upgraded my Century Link service to the Gig plan, the current rented modem/router from century link only provide 40-50Mbps.  I want to upgrade and Century Link support is not much help.  Any recommendations on what I need to get the speed I'm paying for on a monthly basis?

 

After much research on google - I found the following links, I would like something that is plug and play, if possible, but can mudlle through getting something to work if it will provide me the speed needed.

I don't want to pay for something if it's not going to work and then try to return it, etc..

 

There must be folks out there with the same issue?

 

Any thoughts or advice?

 

TIA!

I do not understand why you are putting up with less then the paid speed with the provided router. I would have them out to figure out why I am not getting the paid for speeds with their equipment. After that is figured out, then you can see if the D7000 is something that would work.

   Which gives you _what_ to connect to your (modem+)router?  A DSL
phone-like connection (or two), an Ethernet port on an ONT, or what?

 

> [...] the current rented modem/router from century link [...]

 

   Which is a what, exactly, connected how, exactly, to what, exactly?

 

> [...] only provide 40-50Mbps. [...]

 

   Measured how, exactly?

   Then you might want to provide a much better description of your
service and the equipment associated with it.

What does that mean? What is the make and model of that modem/router?

 

I have not come across a modem/router that limits the speed you get like that.

 

What it may do is have specifications that can't handle 1 Gbps. But 50Mbps is slower than anything on offer.

 

If it is the wired speed, then the slowest you will get this century is 100 Mbps on some older devices. That is down to the speed of the LAN ports.

 

Wifi speeds will nearly always be less than 1000 Mbps, mostly because wifi clients aren't up to it, but without knowing what you own, it is anybody's guess as to where the bottleneck might be.

Just another user.
