Just bought this ADSL modem router - seems to be the best price available if you are near enough to a PCWorld, since most other reliable sites have it for at least £15 more. It seems to be up and running well, and comes with a lifetime warranty. If you get the Quidco on it, then it should end up costing £65.38.

have you tried the usb port with an external hard drive? Just wondering if you get reasonable transfer speeds, streaming of music or movies?

bought this router a few weeks back, the software is ***** (for connecting the NAS) it kep re-regging a new network drive so ended up with everytime i restarted pc had a new drive added. transfers where slow.

speeds where slow on N even when i was sat right next to it (65 mbps) eventually the router just gave up and i got a refund, and to think i swapped it for a linksys wrt150n , worst mistake i ever made.

p.s. it may of just been my router, but even whe it worked, it wasnt that good, i did nhave the cable version, but they are both just the same really.

Haven't tried the USB storage device connection yet - guess I better get on that...

Do you mean that the Linksys one was also bad, or was the 'worst mistake' this Belkin router?

the belkin was pretty bad, like i say i did have the wrt150n which was pretty good, but sold it and decided to buy this one instead, ended up getting a refund and am now using a wrt54g linksys for the moment till i find a new one.

it was pretty bad on performance, in the same room as the router my asus eeepc 1000h would connect :

200+ mbps on the linksys wrt150n
65 mbps max on the belkin but quality of connection was a bit flaky sometimes slow browsing / streaming, eventually dying altogether and going to router heaven.

54 mbps constant with good signal quality on the wrt54g.



the belkin would drop to 12mbps if i went to the room above the router which is pretty poor. considering i paid £65 from pcworld for it.

gonna go for one of the newer linksys ones i think. (5ghz range) to cover the N part of my network.

it could of just been my router as eventually it just died, it would not connect to the internet, even after hard resets etc , and the transfer rate for any storage was poor, but then all the transfer rates via wireless was crap.

i would deffo do some research before buying and consider looking elsewhere for a router.

glad to help
