I will be posting 5 deals on network parts around a network with 300mbps wireless and 1000mbps aka gigabit wired connections using WPA2 encryption to protect the network. They all work together. They do have other encryptions on them as well. The parts are posted seperately because I feel it's best for searching, so people don't think its one bundle. Remember to go to the manufacturers site and download any updates BEFORE you take your old network apart. Some may not need updates but you won't know until your setup. If you need network cables buy cheap CAT6 ones from Ebuyer when buying something else.

This is a router for those of you that want to upgrade to gigabit hardwired and 300Mb wireless. Found this that is £13 cheaper than Ebuyer and £35 cheaper than Play, which isn't bad.

I got this router at the end of last year when they had a similar offer on. It's a great router, and comes highly recommended. :)

I also had no probs getting the vouchers - they took a few weeks to arrive.

unfortunatly Amazon isn't one of the shops listed in the promotion.

Ack, you're right. I checked and I got mine from Dabs, not Amazon. :oops:

OK, edited it and thanks ... I never noticed the small print :( I ordered one as well. Ah well, I'll take the saving and hope they dont drop to £75 lol ... nah can't see them doing that until the dual band ones are well and truely established and come down ... in about a year or two.

I just thought I'd add my 2p worth.

This is a great router. I've been using it for the last 4 months without any issues. It works flawlessly with my VM 20mb broadband. (It's replaced a router that didn't.)

At the time I bought it, PC World were the cheapest - reserved online for store collection.

I didn't realise at the time that PC World weren't one of the retailers that qualified me for the D-Link offer - £15 M&S vouchers. It wasn't until I was filling in the paperwork and read the small print that I discovered the list of 'participating retailers'. I decided it was still worth a shot, so I sent off the paperwork anyway. I received my 3x£5 M&S vouchers a couple of weeks later!

This is no guarantee you'll receive yours, but bear in mind there's no guarantee you won't either. :thumbsup:

this router is 85.10 at pcworld, i guess with quidco and any pcworld voucher code you could get this at a great price and plus you get 11 years guarantee with dlink

I had a netgear router before and I always used to get dropped connection but when I bought this one ive never had any problems with. (i bought it over a year ago)
