|DG834G V4 change aerial|
I need the G rather than the GT as the GT doesn't support IPsec VPN unfortunately.
The only other combined modem/router that netgear does which supports VPN is the ProSafe DGFV338, which is too expensive just to try it out as an experiment.
I currently have a DG834G v3 but the chipset in the v4 is supposed to be better with ADSL2+ so I just want to try it. The reason I ask if the aerial is still replaceable on the v4 is that I use a higher gain external at the moment to improve my home wireless signal strength and it works a treat.
I currently have a downstream connection sync speed of around 14mbps with a speedtest result of
Speed Down 11371.48 Kbps ( 11.1 MBPS )
Speed Up 805.95 Kbps ( 0.8 MBPS )
Nildram tech support, which I must say has been excellent, think I can get more and that the v3 chipset may be a limiting factor.
I'm happy to try out other manufacturers which support VPN, but the Zyxel I tried had a shockingly weak wireless strength to every bit of kit in my house even when using the external higher gain aerial I have.
