Asus nt-n13u wireless n router with print server computers £21.75 @ eBay/cclcomputers

such a dommysuch a dommy

I've been looking for dd-wrt routers and this looks quite cheap. I'm not sure if it is the b1 or the lesser v1 but still cannot be all bad can it???

Please note: This is just a router, not a cable or adsl modem router.

Update: Sorry, I listed as an n31u and its an n13u, sorry for any confusion.

UPDATE: Thanks to @thefinest1 for finding it cheaper

    Im guessing I can run a cable from the router that sky has supplied to this one which would be in my room?

    PS. Will this work with my iPhone? Just asking because the current router I have is a Belkin N router and it wont work with my iPhone, but is fine with other N devices.
    Routers happen to be one of the things with regards to computers that i'm not totally clued up about. Sorry about the questions!

    It's should definitely work with the proper settings.

    Hi Steve, Yes as Powi has said it should, though if you just want to extend you may want to purchase

    I would also look into powerline adapters

    http://www.hotukdeals.com/deals/trendnet-200mbps-powerline-av-adapter-kit-twin-pack-aria-25-38-delivered-1289277

    if you are just connecting the one device (ps3, xbox or pc) and connect a cable from the router to powerline A and plug this into a mains power socket then in your room a cable from powerline B to your wired device.

    With regards to your Iphone it may just be that you can change some settings on the router (instead of the WPS option to press a button and enter a pin set a passphrase)

    I would do a search on belkins website for the manual to access your router but from experience belkins use a 192.168.2.1 address via a web browser.

    I would not take what I have written as gospel and do welcome anyone else to help if they can.

    Does it provide QoS?

    A stupid question from me. What is the print server? I am guessing it allows you to plug in a printer and connect to it over wifi? Is that right? If so I presume it gives you the same functionality as a wifi enabled printer? If so which is a better solution?

    I'd have my Computer, TV, and 360 all plugging into it, so a router is necessary really. Regarding the iPhone, I seem to have made a mistake. It connects to the Blekin router no problem, but the Virgin one in the old flat it would never even find. My friends Galaxy S had the same problem. So it might have just been the Virgin router.
    But yeah, the phone line for the router in the new flat is a good way away from my room, so we are going to run a cable from the living room, out the window and into my room. A cable from the router in my room will then go to my other flatmates room so he can set up his own router in his room too, haha.
    Basically, I want a good router that will handle all the trafic well. Some nice wee features on it would be a bonus. Had a look online at reviews for this router and they are not the best, but for this price you really can't complain :)

    hi all,

    found it cheaper here, it looks like the same product. just remember if you use this router, your ISP may not offer you support as they prefer using their router. its cheaper than sky's netgear router that goes for £35. you could wrangle it for free if you are feeling up to it

    @fevial - Yes, its essentially the same, I would say a wireless printer is better. One other reason for having this router is that you can also ftp to a usb storage device (dd wrt or a similar modified firmware may extend this further).

    @ro888 - From what the manual says EZQos

    Hmm if you get a decent wireless signal upstairs and all clients are wired I would suggest putting the router into client bridged mode, apart from a netgear wgps606 I have not managed this with any other router unless they have been flashed with dd wrt (openWRT and Tomato are also open source builds) unless the router has two wireless interfaces you can only use it one way i.e. for extending or for connecting to an existing network.

    UPDATE: After just checking the router you can run upto three wireless interfaces from this router.

    running a cable outside isnt a bad idea and would free up two mains sockets (even though some extension leads have been known to work with powerline adapators).

    Hope you get sorted.

    UPDATE: with regards to the reviews, the issues might be related to the firmware (stock) the dd wrt pages

    http://www.dd-wrt.com/wiki/index.php/Asus_RT-N13U

    I would also like to state though that I take no responsibility for your actions regarding flashing etc following the instructions should not result in a brick but just make sure you check the correct version first!

    i'm not overley versed in this stuff but wouldnt switches/hubs do what you guys need? in our flat we have the router go in to homeplugs and then in the spare room theres a gigabit switch connecting my server, pc and and xbox and in our living room theres a normal switch that a homeplug feeds and then runs our tv, freeview box, xbox and blu ray player. everything seems to work on the network fine as long as the internet goes through one router. If the wifi is alright i'd think you guys would be alright just using switches as they are usually cheaper with more ports that can run faster

    I do agree but steve might want to extend the wireless as well so an access point with the 4 ethernets adds slightly more, a switch would help reduce the complications though (no need to mess about disabling dhcp servers if they are on the same range)

    Yeah, a switch would have been ideal but the wireless signal from where the Sky router will be will not reach the my and his rooms at totally different ends of the flat. I'll need the wireless for my phone and iPad :)
    Ive never bought a router before so never have I really needed to look at specs and what one does compared to the other, the one I have in my room the now is one my brother gave me. Its utterly horrible. But it really only use it as a switch to be fair.

    fair enough, i used them because i wanted gigabit in the spare room and didn't understand configuring routers when i needed to do it, thought i read that you said the wifi works now with sky but i must have misread that, it's a pain you cant replace the sky router (well not within their T&C's anyway), if its the same as ours it's fairly useless, i barely get wifi sat in the same room.

    Nice find OP. Good price for a new dd-wrt capable router. For those on even more of a budget you can typically find D-link DIR-615 on ebay for around £15 delivered (I have two of these). Won't be new like this one though.

    Can anyone confirm if this supports AirPrint to an epson dx4000 ? Tried to look on the asus website and no mention of AirPrint, also the list of supported printers page shows a 404 not found error :-s

    I've been using the dir615 and found them to be great especially in wireless client bridge mode. Just liked these as they have usb and multiple wireless interfaces. Which Im not sure dir615 seems to have

    And if I'm not mistaken, the "even cheaper" argos one linked above is not the N13U but the N13, which a brief investigation tells me it's not workable for DD-WRT?
