Item: Technicolor TG589vn v3 VDSL Router (Mweb FON VDSL router) + ZyXel WRE2205 Wireless Extender (MWEB branded)
Age: 3 years
Price: R300 for both
Warranty: None
Packaging: Yes, original
Condition: Brand new, never used
Location: Lenasia, JHB
Reason: Never been used, not needed
Shipping: At your cost, for you to arrange
Collection: Preferred

Received these 2 items years back when I signed up for an MWEB ADSL contract. I did not actually use either of them - I stuck with my current setup at the time as it was working just fine (Netgear ADSL router, I am now on Telkom LTE).

Both boxes include MWEB branding, and might contain MWEB specific firmware. I know that the Technicolor VDSL router can be flashed with original firmware (there is a thread somewhere on the Mybroadband forums). Not sure about the Wireless extender though, but probably flashable as well as is the case with most devices like this. Both devices can probably be used without needing to flash the firmware, but I would recommend doing so, hence the cheap price.

If interested, call or Whatsapp me on 082 728 0000 for quicker communication. PM also fine, but I will take longer to respond.

It can be flashed with generic firmware. Otherwise will work only on Mweb.
And yes, the extender can be flashed too, I did myself, there is another thread on Mybb for extender.

No need to flash the VDSL router, works with any ISP.

Source: I was using my Mweb VDSL modem for the last 2-3 years with Afrihost+Vox fatpipe special until I upgraded to an Asus DSL router.
