My netgear wireless router has been playing up recently so been looking for a cheap replacement. Found this refurb which comes with a 12 month warranty and is as cheap as only a tenner delivered (read comments) ! got to be worth a punt!

these are excellent, and a steal at that price - btw you may want to add the £2.99 delivery details (still a great price). Only things to bear in mind are that 54g wireless and 100m/b ethernet are or will soon be "old hat" - but for this price in a normal set up - great deal.
#2
Plus shipping and VAT is £13.50. Still a good price, though.

I actually bought via a well known auction site (still from broadbandbuyer). The delivery there is free! I assumed it'd be the same from their website.

Excellent price.

--edit
Sorry, misread it as WBR-G54!

You can't do this:

[s]You can also install the open-source WRT* router firmwares on this device thereby turning it into a £150 router (feature wise).

My favourite at the minute is Tomato: http://www.polarcloud.com/tomato

DD-WRT
OpenWRT
Tomato
etc.[/s]

That's supposed to be a strikeout by it looks like vB doesn't like it... :S

Thanks for the custom firmware link mr.velvet, looks really good. Will give that a go.

I must be missing something - this router doesnt list on the "compatible devices" for dd-wrt and the other wrt firmwares?

Nope - this will not work - i got kinda excited (sad I know).

This is Texas Instruments based system so will not work with these custom firmwares (according to the [URL="www.dd-wrt.com"]www.dd-wrt.com[/URL] forums).

Anything that acts as a modem-router will not work with these firmwares.

Other than that - good find OP!

Thought I was missing something - shame that I'm not!

The poster above mentioning about the auction site - they are still there, with free delivery...!

I had one of these and found it a little bit unreliable, it dropped connection and restarted a lot using wireless.
#10
Nice one! Ordered off "the auction site" for the easy payment and free postage.
#11
any one got the link to the auction site please

Cheers, H+R, well worth a tenner from the "well known auction site".

Sold out on Ebay...damn!

I bought 2 of these routers, and they're rubbish. The one I installed for my sister just stopped working - and the one I've got works in a fashion ---- the ethernet ports just switch off at random, I can't use my laptop unless the main PC is switched on! Just ridiculous scenarios. At the time they only supplied XP drivers on the CD included - and the Vista ones weren't even on their site. A bad product, just as well it's expired ---- the reason they're refurbished is they always break :whistling:

You don't need drivers to setup a router!
#17
Drivers?? WTF!!!! Anywho for the gamers among you you can get these to handle 2 Xbox 360s without even breaking a sweat. just switch on upnp, no other config necessary. And the last one I 'installed' is well into its second year of 24/7 connection with no drops!!

So!!!?

Basically you're saying it just does what it should.

Then you're using Internet Connection Sharing, and bypassing the Router. Don't do that :thumbsup:

Routers don't need drivers :thumbsup:

A bad product

I'd put this one down to a case of user-error :thumbsup:

So, most home routers can't cope with two XBox 360s at the same time - you need a good UPnP implementation, and a an Open Cone NAT implementation. Modern D-Link routers are a safe bet.

Wrong - he's saying it supports the specialist case of support two XBox 360s simultaneously. Many routers can't do this !
Please do your research before you post - you can start here for a primer on the NAT side http://www.rasmithuk.org.uk/?page_id=81%3Cbr%3E :thumbsup:
