I would also like to know this as it is actually a "Gigabit Ethernet Router."

Claims to have "Gigabit WAN interface" so it'll be one where you connect your standalone modem, not with an ADSL modem built in.

The built-in USB port and bittorrent client make it deeply interesting

Small point... Postage is always £3.99, not £2.99 as stated in the subject line

Thanks :thumbsup:

Advice please - I have a netgear wireless router that was free when I got Sky broadband. I assume that this is loads better as it is Draft - N. If my laptop was also compatible for Draft n would that mean better streams etc? It wouldnt increase the speed of the broadband would it?

Thanks.

Also don't forget Quidco - though I notice it's down right now.

Doesn't the sky broadband router connect directly to the phone line? This one doesn't: it connects to an adsl modem which connects to the line.

Yes it does - what difference does that make?
#10
Well it's fine if you want to go Buffalo router --wire--> Netgear router -> Phone line! Wouldn't increase your broadband speed, only the speed of things within your network. If the wifi connection is doing badly then this new setup MIGHT be smoother but it's hard to say.
#11
ordered ;) needed a backup for my Netgear WPN824 which I think's failing. heat and rep sir!
#12
this is a great router as you can connect a usb hard drive to it to for network backup and sharing media files etc, also it will d/l torrents so you don't have to keep you pc on, my friend is going to be gutted as he said he brought his form £65 :o
#13
Wireless N + 4 x GB Ethernet! Hot. Shame it's not DD-WRT compatible.
#14
I dont suppose this supports bridge mode? cant see it in the specs.

@gingerboy your sky router has a modem built in which is needed for your internet to work

Simply put, this router doesn't have a modem built in so is not fit for your purposes mate

he could still hook the Buffalo to his Netgear router like it was a modem.
#19
Also, this is a 2.4GHz router if anyone was wondering. That fact is buried in the manual.
#20
supposedly broadband so will bag myself one of these.

Does anyone know whether it supports NTFS and how fast the transfer rate be?
#23
Got one i was looking at a linksys one the other day £65+p+p its the ability to plug in any hard drive and make it network attached that's great even though i have a couple of nas drives this means any cheap 1tb external hdd can be shared for £50 you can buy a 1tb hdd but a 1tb nas drive will be 3-4x that and the ability to download bit torrents and more than likely from Usenet is brilliant because i have that feature with my popcorn hour.

I bought the DealExtreme NAS and connected 1tb NTFS drive to it. The speed is horrible over the network. I get about 3mb/s max.
I wonder how this compares. If its any good, i'd replace my router and nas with this and save space/mains sockets/less cables.

Same. Want a Wireless N Bridge for my 360.
#26
Guys this router will benefit only internal wireless transfers..

With sky you probably are using 54Mbit wireless G which is double the best possible speed sky offers.. {even if you live inside the xchange..}

So not much of a gain in terms of broadband speed..

Bit torrent and other features are good.

I would wait for the IEEE n standard which gets ratified this sept {prices could come tumbling down for pre n / draft n}
#27
Ordered! Will see how good it is when it arrives....

Got £15 credit at Cdiscount, so v tempted. Video review here

EDIT - just noticed that review is for the non Gigabit unit.
#29
buy something from cdiscount at your peril
#30



I know that's why its such a good buy the same sort of thing by linksys is around £70 and no doubt there will be some firmware hack around that will allow you to download from the newsgroups because it does torrents. I'm well pleased as I've been looking for one of these for weeks my 2 54g routers don't cut it anymore

Its the drive you will format as NTFS not the router although you should be able to deal with anything like that from the management page Any drive will support any file system it just depends what you format it as.

Transfer rate will depend on a number of things like wired or wireless connection what cable was used I.E cat5,5e,6 how many clients are using the drive to transfer or receive data but because i have a few Nas drives i can tell you I'm the speed is not like it is when its a local drive.

The router itself will be running some form of Linux for controlling things like downloads and to make it compatible to everyone without much trouble it will probably by default to fat32 like any flashdrive.

Its a broadband router D.S.L not A.D.S.L so will be no good for sky.

WZR-HP-G300NH cost around 70-80 quid elsewhere....

I suspect they may actually have wrong description and router they are selling is WHR-G300N ( this one looks pretty much the same but cost about 30 quid in other shops)... no bittorrent client, no gigabit ethernet, no usb......

i HOPE i am wrong.... very tempted to buy it.. gonna ring them tomorrow to make sure it really is WZR-HP-G300NH
#33
I'm hoping that its not a listing error and this actually the WZR-HP-G300N model which the price suggests.
#34
polly69, thanks for answering.

What i meant was the NTFS file transfer rate over the LAN (i prefer wires for reliability and speed).
I currently have a NTFS formatted 1tb drive which is about 70% full. I do not want to reformat to fat32 as i dont have a backup drive to transfer over. Plus, the common fat32 system does not allow file sizes over 4gb so i prefer NTFS.

If i can stream HD (1080p) content (without hicups) from my NTFS drive, through the router to my wired devices; i would get this in a heartbeat.

The price suggests its wrong but the description matches totally to the model number they have given and it is £70 everywhere else it was only released in April I've ordered one anyway you have to be in it to win it. Don't forget cdiscounts does reduce stuff sometime by a lot of money we can only hope its right I've took a screen capture because if it is wrong they will be collecting it from me and giving a full refund.

the manual says it only supports FAT32 plus NTFS is super slow on a Network.

Out of Stock! Doh!

Found answer here : http://forums.buffalotech.com/buffalo/board/message?board.id=0102&thread.id=2023

The only formats you can use are XFS and Fat32. XFS is a linux format.
#39
No longer in stock. I suspect CDiscount have described the item wrong and the rush has made them panic and pull the product. Googling the model produces no images like this one except on Dabs where a model like this appears for £35 with nothing like this spec.

Either they were going to ship a superior model and lose buckets of money or they were going to ship an inferior one and p1ss loads of punters off and get a shipload of returns.

You shouldn't have to format it should see it straight away i was thinking you meant if it was a bare metal drive and you where using the router config to format it windows by default picks fat32 by default for any external hdd for compatibility.

NTFS is the one to use today and if it didn't support that it would be doomed from the start when i plug a usb drive into one of my Nas drives it picks it up straight away and my drives are all ntfs it also mentions streaming HD media which would be an issue as Fat32 only supports files up to 4gb so hd content would be out unless it was using ntfs or ext3 because it must run some form of Linux it will support NTFS.
