I'm not putting a downer on the deal but how many people in the home environment use a separate modem router set up? (voted hot btw)
#2
Just the job for anyone on cable.

Yep - everyone on a cable connection with Virgin - they supply the modem as part of the deal, you supply the router !

Well my folks have a NTL cable modem with just an USB or an Ethernet outlet, so not much use for their WiFi, hence this very capable WiFi providing box w/be useful!

I use separate because my ISP are fussy if I don't use their modem/router.
Also, the old granite walls in my house and a big fat Aga in the middle block the wireless signal. Going separate allows me more freedom in wireless router placement, which I so badly need.

Heat!

Ahh, I thought every provider these days gave a free wi-fi router with inbuilt modem. Thanks, every day's a school day X)

You can also use this as a wireless bridge so lets say you have some ethernet only devices away from your main router - you can set this up to connect to your existing wireless router and provide internet access to the ethernet connected devices.
#12
ordered 2 to give wireless bridge upstairs for printer/pc N-rated connection :)

£19.49 delivered - BARGAIN.

What is the reception like on this? Reviews elsewhere seems to suggest pretty poor thanks to internal arials.
#14
Will this allow me to set up wireless in my halls of residence (University Halls)???
#15
Almost a 100% increase on yesterdays price!
#16
i have a o2 basic router and i cant get signal on the other side of my house, could i use this to boost the signal, i dont like those little plug adapters.

Yes but you might need to put it into access point mode and turn of the dhcp/ nat for some providers.
#18
I had one of these & returned it. The internal antennae are abysmal.

Thanks for confirmation, avoid then. I've currently got a Belkin that is useless, drops signal all the time and I'm always recommended Buffalo but obviously not this one. Is there a good one with external antennae that is fairly cheap?

You can get a D-Link DIR-615 Wireless N router from various eBay sellers for £10-£15. This has two external aerials.

isn't this one free from virgin?
#22
Yes the D-link DIR 615 is the one you get from Virgin. I have the free one running DD-WRT as a bridge :D
#23
Although virgin have very recently started providing combined cable modem/ wireless router boxes.
#24
Just ordered 2 of these. Voted hot.

Great for us as we are Cable users. Thanks for sharing
#25
I'd recommend this router if you use the dd-wrt firmware, i have this router and am very happy with it but it really does require dd-wrt firmware in my opinion.

I use one of these as a wifi bridge for the part of hte house that the main wifi signal cant reach.
#27
looks hot
#28
Is it just me, or does a quick first glance at the image suggest it to be a monitor?

What will the dd-wrt firmware do?
thanks

I'm a Virgin Media customer but didn't get a router from them as I've been with them for years, 150k was the first speed we had I believe. Things move fast!

Anyway what are my chances of bagging one of them for free if I ring them up?

If you really want to go for the Quality, I would recommend Draytek Routers. I have one which is 4 years old and still performs flawlessly today as it did the first day. They are very expensive though and i've almost never seen them on HUKD. I was just sick of restarting my Linksys 3 times a day prior to that so I just went ahead and spent the money for the convenience.

I'd say your chances are pretty good...Just be straight out to them, tell them you want a free router otherwise someone else will get your custom for the next few years. They are usually quite accommodating.
#34
Personally I use a couple of these Edimax BR-6574N Gigabit routers - never needed to restart them - very reliable and good wireless speeds.

Does anyone know if they ship v1 or v2 units? v2's dont seem to be able to support DD-WRT!

I'd avoid buying the D-Link 615 like the plague. Its rubbish on standard/virgins firmware the DCHP server is ALWAYS crashing needing a reboot. Its got bad wireless problems with DD-WRT, They get better with wireless N disabled but its still not great and removes the point of getting an N router!

For Free im sure the DIR-615 works fine as a wireless bridge.

This would work fine as a bridge or repeater or even router/access point (considering you dont need the signal range) - especially if it supports DD-WRT!

Yep it is looking like it you want a decent router you've got to spend £40 - £50, all of these ones £20 and under don't seem to cut it. I don't actually care personally, my PC and Xbox are both wired to the router but I have to reset it several times a day for my sisters laptop.
#37
I turned off wireless from isp modem then using one of these, never had to reset modem or router since doing this 6 months ago. Good signal in modern 3 bed house, can't comment if you have a well built house though!
#38
Glad I purchased 3 for £17.97 last night on eBay :D
#39
Has to be a bit chilly this one, will stick with my trusted SMC router.

can't be that hot if it was half the price yesterday, sorry..
