Wireless Router

Hi all.

I'm thinking of going wireless soon - Gonna need the internet access upstairs in my bedroom for ICT projects (and other things lol) Where the internet isn't right now.

Don't want to opt for a wired version, so want to try wireless.

I need a router that's going to work ok with GheyOL (AOL lol sorry) and includes a usb dongle (for the computer upstairs)

I've seen them coming down in price around the £40 mark?

Does any one know where I can pick one up around that price or even possibly cheaper?

I don't use QuidCo - so no deals using them please
:)

Thanks in advance

Doubt you'll get both items for £40...well not unless they are refurbs or secondhand.

Someone on here recommended you phone AOL and ask them to put you on the £14.99 tarrif and to send you a free wireless router (they supply a Netgear)...apparently it works so give it a go.

Yeah... we're currently on the Gold plan (2mb line) at a reduced rate of pay (special customer deal thingy)

What I was thinking of doing is being cheeky and asking if they would send out a wireless router considering we've been customers of theirs now for around 7-8 years, if not longer (seeing as they are kind enough to give us reduced rates)

@Dino - I'll pass on the offer, but thanks all the same :)

No probs Designz :thumbsup:

Problem solved.

Rang AOL Customer Services and they're sending me a free router :)

Pays to enquire sometimes..

What's a pain is that I've just paid out £22 for a Netgear USB Stick that I need apparently. And then I paid another £31 for some RAM that I needed lol.

Oh well - It's all good :)

Can that be used with other ISP's? I'm "quite" sure it can only be used with BT ADSL services.

That's excellent...maybe I should try and get a spare Netgear...what monthly rate do you pay for your AOL gold...I'm on the same as you and pay £19.99...so if your is cheaper maybe I should challenge them about a reduction.

AOL Gold at £19.99 a month.


All they're doing/done is to cancel the current gold contract, and start a 'new' gold contract thus starting a new 12month contract. That also means you qualify for the free router.


I was a bit dubious at first as to whether they would allow it - but I sent AOL an email and they basically said to ring CS and as an offer of goodwill they may be willing to send out a router.

I think the reduced rate is only offered to people who have been with the AOL service for a certain amount of time.

We've been with them from 56k Dial-up and either from version 3 or 4! So, some 7 or 8 years.

It's a bit hit and miss with their CS, sometimes you can get a real friendly person on the end of the line, and then others you can get a total git who makes everything more than his job's worth...

Thanks designz.
Yes I agree with you ..I've had some bad experiences with AOL...particularly technical support who just seem to follow a crib sheet and then ask you to hang on, when all fails, so you can speak with a so called techician..who is sometimes no more clued up than the person before...grrrrr...and more often than not you are kept waiting an age.

I've been with them about 6 years so will give the free wireless router request a try..nowt to lose really.
