Hi keefrto,
A month ago I bought a Netgear DG834G router with an adaptor on offer at Amazon for around £57.00. Not sure whether the offer still holds, but you may try. The link is given below. Good luck.

cheers Saabu, I have clocked this deal as well and no-one seems to better it even if I went with the 108mbps version. How is the item for you?

Good for you keefrto.
The product is excellent. Easy to setup and good connection, even with AOL silver. Can pick up strong signals even outside my home.
Best wishes,
Saabu.

Apparently Linksys is also doing a deal for their product. It is also considered reasonably good and the price is less than £50.00. Check it out at:

Saabu, the WRT54GSUK is suitable for NTL/Telewest and not to normal ADSL one. If you're looking for an ADSL modem/router/WIFI deal, go for this one:

Thanks for the pointer Wiraone. I just happened to notice that there was one of Linksys offers on HDUK.
Cheers.

Hi there, I agree the deal that was linked is minus the adaptor now but i have been able to get as far as clicking to finalise my order for the dg834g no probs?

Checking out the link however few people not happy with netgear and commenting on Linksys , any product worth looking at?

:o
Thats interesting, never thought the routers would be so different. I am glad I did not order as I have an adsl connection. Will start looking a bit closer me thinks
#10
hi i puchased the argos WAG354G. linksys deal and i have found
it a first class buy easy to set up and it works a treat if you want a adsl wireless router/modem this is great value also linksys is a part of the cisco
systems group which are big players in the network
game ( hope this is some help )
#11
The WRT54GS is suitable for any connection, including ADSL. However, you will need Ethernet ADSL modem or cheapo ADSL wired router in modem (or bridged) mode. This is how I am using it. DLink 502T in bridged mode hooked to WRT54GS in PPPOE mode. Works a charm.
BTW, for WRT54GS I strongly recommend HyperWRT firmware.

As to performance, here are two excellent articled from THG:
Hardware Router Chart
Which Router Reigns Supreme for P2P?
#12
True, WRT54GS could be use with ADSL with extra modem.. but why going for extra device in your setup when the WAG54G could give the same thing with built-in modem? .. and with the same price as WRT54GS. Your setup surely doubled the cost :)
#13
Yes, cost-wise it is not the best combination (502T was only 25 quid - small price to pay). However, performance-wise it is way better than integrated solutions. WRT54GS was clearly the best router two years ago (when I bought it) for high-traffic/multiple connections applications. Also consider flexibility - if I'd decide to switch to cable I won't need to change my network configuration, just replace modem to cable one.

Sorry for off-topic :)

I have 2 computers, 1 with xp sp2 and other w98. The dell with the xp on it has the adsl modem speedtouch. I know i need a wireless router but what other stuff do i need in order to link the 2 computers and get them sharing my broadband?
cheers :)

Possible scenarios:

1. Dell is connected to ADSL and have 1 wireless card. Win98 also have wireless card. In this case you can configure both cards in Ad-hoc mode. Win98 PC will require Dell to be On for Internet access (via ICS).
Pros - no wires, relatively cheap.
Cons - no access to Internet from Win98 if Dell is off, slow data transfer between PCs.

2. Dell is connected to ADSL and have Ethernet card. Win98 PC also have Ethernet card. Buy cross-cable and connect two PCs together. Use ICS as in scenario 1.
Pros - cheapest solution, fastest transfer of data between PCs.
Cons - no access to Internet from Win98 if Dell is off. Wires.

3. Buy wired ADSL router and connect both PCs to it via CAT5 cables. Speedtouch goes to bin (or eBay).
Pros - relatively cheap, no dependency on Dell for Internet access from Win98. Fast data transfer between PCs.
Cons - Wires.

4. Buy wireless ADSL router and connect both PCs to it by using wireless cards. Speedtouch goes to bin (or eBay).
Pros - no dependency on Dell for Internet access from Win98.
Cons - Slow data transfer between PCs.

There are some other scenarious possible (like mine for example or by using Homeplug) but those will be more expensive and needed only if performance is an issue).

Make up your mind :)

Hi, Kommunist, glad I asked as I thought I would just have to buy the wireless adsl modem router and voila connect to both. So whatever happens I need to know if my computers have wireless cards? (newbie at this if you did not already know) :o
#17
If you are going to use wireless, you need to ensure your computers got wireless cards of compatible standard. Today's accepted format is 802.11g. There are also widely accepted but not standartized formats of Super 802.11G (or 11g+ or Speedbooster or whatever marketing guys invent), which is a superset of 802.11g. The problem is that you must buy devices using chipsets from the same manufacturer (there aren't many, so it's no difficult) as, say 108G won't work faster if your router is claiming 125g. And vice versa. It'll work at standard 802.11g speed (54g) though.
Another not-standartised format is MIMO (sometimes referred as Pre-n or Pre 802.11n). This is faster than 802.11g or Speedbooster but standard is expected to be accepted in mid 2006, so interoperability and future compatibility might be an issue.

Back to track :)

As this topic is about Nergear, you can select the following stuff:
for 802.11g - DG834G
for 802.11g 108M - DG834GT
for Pre-n - DG834PN

for wireless cards. If you can't open your PCs and have free USB, then:

for 802.11g - WG111
for 802.11g 108M - WG111T
for Pre-n - WPN111

for wireless cards. If you can open your PCs and have free PCI, then:

for 802.11g - WG311
for 802.11g 108M - WG311T
for Pre-n - WPN311

Also, Netgear make some very interesting devices, like WGPS606. This is basically print server with wireless connection and hub. In short, if you want to share your printer on network so that will be visible for all computers all the time, then you should go for it. In addition, it can replace wireless network card for one your PCs. Say, you have two PCs in one room upstairs and your ADSL router for some reason is downstairs. You can connect both PCs to WGP606 by wires and then it will connect them wirelessly to router downstairs. :)
