Another Ebuyer.com/Google Checkout item that having searched the deals I think has been overlooked...

Living in an apartment with solid concrete walls meant I had already worked my way through 2 Wifi routers before I found this one, which really does what it says on the tin...

I really can't recommend this highly enough. If you're having a problem with your wifi router signal get one while the Google Checkout deal is still valid!

This Smart Router automatically detects and configures your Cable or DSL Internet connection. Security features include WPA, WEP, Privacy Separator, Intrusion Detector, and SPI firewall. In addition to fast wireless performance, WHR-HP-G54 features a built-in external switch between wireless router and wireless bridge access point modes.

i got one of these as soon as the checkout deal arrived, absolute bargain!

i flashed mine with openwrt.org 0.9 firmware and am using it as a "gaming adaptor" (client/bridge mode) from my xbox on ground floor and adsl modem on third floor (french house, big concrete/oak floors!)

please note this not an adsl modem, it will work as a router for cable (e.g. ntl)
#3
Have one of these too, absolutely brilliant, rock solid signal.
Doddle to set up too.

Voted Hot!

CABLE ONLY!:) (ntl/Virgin)

Excellent, just placed my order :thumbsup:
Great price!
#5
are the signals really that good???

i got a netgear and struggle to get a good signal downstairs with my HTPC

so if its THAT good i might get one, just worried at how cheap it is compared to my netgear was
#6
Don't worry about the cheap price, this is quality built and yes the signals are THAT good :thumbsup:
#7
Infact, its that good, I felt compelled to leave a review on ebuyer ;-)
#8
i've got a linksys wrt54gl and a netgear dg834v2 and the buffalo beats both on range, it's a great price. my linksys is getting relogated to ssh jumpbox.
#9
I bought one of these also as soon as I heard about the google checkout a few weeks ago. It has an excellent signal and I have never had any experience with WI-FI or wireless routers but found this simple to set-up.
#10
ok i took your word for it and went for it

after all its only £26

if it works i will be thanking you for pushing me into buying it :D

ummm, what if it don't work? :oops: :-D
#12
I just got one of these (before this offer was here)

once i got it running i had a real pain getting a wifi pickup on my laptop and it was driving me nuts. I called Buffalo tech support and it turns out if you have any high strength wireless devices...in my case a tv signal transmitter to show tv in my bedroom...it kills off the wifi signal.

just thought i'd share this as many people have some kind of wireless device around the house, the tech guy even said some house phones when in use can kill the signal too.
#13
Can some please let me know if it can be used with Virgin Broadband as i made the mistake of buying the Talk Talk 54g Wireless ADSL Modem Router last time round only to find out i couldn't use it. don't want to make the same mistake again and be left with a useless box again.

cheers
#14
The reviews look great !! voted HOT. Yes dik17, this should work fine with Virgin Media Broadband.

Can anyone confirm it the router can be placed horizontal? Is the stand detachable? I can only find pictures of the router stood up vertically !!
#15
yes i've got it running with Virgin Media internet.

you still need the cable modem running then ethernet into the router.

you could lay it anyway you like although it think it prefers to be vertical. you get a wall mound as well that it can clip into

Glad to help :thumbsup:




ummm, what if it don't work? :oops: :-D

if it don't work i'm gonna hunt you down.....and kick....your ass

:giggle: nah if it dont work then i'll have a spare backup

i do have a wireless transmitter for tv but thats only in use when we are eating in the kitchen at dinner time. Do have wireless phones too.....might try unplgging them tonight and see what happens......

and cancel my order if my netgear all of a sudden picks up signal....meh whatever lol :?
#17
Excellent PRICE for a CABLE DSL Router. Im selling off linksys N draft to get this. SAVE some money... SIMPLY canot go wrong.

THANKS FOR THE POINTER!!
#18
I recieived this one from ebuyer just yesterday - config was a doddle considering I have vista! Talks to my wii - no problems. Was able to stream to my laptop as well which then connects into my TV! TV output was sometimes a bit blocky but reading this thread, I do have one of those wireless tv transmitters nealrby that could be the reason. It's a steal at this price! I Checked misco, play and pc world - they are definetly more expensive! Absolutely brilliant gadget! All I now need is a Xbox 360 and PS3 to complete the test !!!
If only I was rich!!
#19
yes it will work for cable (virgin) that's what its for - not adsl, although i have mine as a 2nd wifi router to my adsl modem, urgh not explaining this well! the point is, there's nowhere to plug a phoneline, but it will take the ethernet connection from your cable modem or adsl modem (!)

it can be vertical or horizontal as it comes with a detachable stand, it's also a lot smaller than e.g. a linksys router - think maybe 3 cd cases piled up, possibly smaller than a netgear too.

the antenna is detachable, so could probably put something bigger on too if you want.

as far as it dropping out with other wireless stuff (tv, phone, microwave etc.) that's normal for any wifi equipment, the faster you go, the more likely it is to drop out, 802.11b and 54g have always been fine for me (and i've got six wireless phones and three wifi routers dotted around my place!) but 125mbps might be a problem.

typeRterror - as for your tv from the laptop being blocky, i suspect that was due to the streaming video using up all the bandwidth rather than lossy signal, wifi isn't really up to the task - hell, even gigabit ethernet can barely cope with streaming hdtv.

#21

#22

#23
hi, i havent recieved the router yet, but can someone explain i set up security on the router, so on my pc can access the internet. also is it possible to connect the xbox as well as the pc to the router, does anyone know the configuration to connect xbmc to the router. thank you
#24
its all pretty straight forward really.
instructions that come with it are good...

you can set up wep security on it. really easy.. was a bit apprehensive when i bought it..

signal strength is excellent
#25
Hey - as Luckveer asks, what are the settings on the router for XBMC (on XBOX1) to work with a vista pc? VOWO - can you help, if indeed you work at Buffolo? or anybody
Doesn't detect an XBOX1 at the moment
#26
Looks like price has gone up now - it shows £32.31:-(

Many thanks for pointer Vowo. I have just joined google checkout.:thumbsup:
#30
I dunno if anyone will be able to tell me this but here goes...

I want to use this plugged into a Telewest (Virgin) broadband modem to connect my Wii. I also want my pc still plugged into the Telewest (Virgin) broadband modem because I have no wireless card in my pc. Will the modem transmit both through the ethernet and usb ports simultaneously?

Many thanks in advance for any help you can offer.
#31
plug the computer in via Ethernet from the router instead of USB from the modem

ethernet is a far better way to connect with a wired connection btw

That's not exactly answering my question.
#33
How about I plug the Buffalo into my modem and then the pc into the Buffalo. Is this possible?
#34
It's ok, I've answered my own question. I was being lazy.

Found this though:

:roll: if you understood what a router did then you'd know i was answering your question

and giving you some useful advice because if you are on anything above a 10meg connection you wont get your full speed via USB you need ethernet!

and yes thats what the back of a cable router looks like :thumbsup:
#36
sorry may seem like an obvious question does this come with an ethernet cable?
#37
yes it comes with the ethernet cable to connect your router to your modem
#38
