Nice find, hot from me

Probably store specific. Have bought a couple of "clearance" items before, complete with the repair jobsheet!

Sealed boxes, loads left on the shelf.

I just had a look at the WAG160N on Amazon to check the price and see how much of a bargain this Staples deal is - check out the reviews! Not good at all!!

I've got one of these, had no problems what so ever highly recommended and a bargain at this price!

I got a Cisco Linksys router at Currys in August, the code WKUSB120N. Included a WRT120N router and WUSB100 USB adapter. Might be worth keeping an eye out for it, was only £19.97.

I used it to extend my existing wireless network, original plan was to just have one SSID between both. But as the other one was a g router I ended up just keeping them separate.

I have had this router for a while now. The biggest problem it has is that it resolves DNS' incorrectly, meaning you end up at the wrong web pages:

This issue has been highlighted to Cisco for well over a year now but they still haven't fixed it.
My recommendation is to go buy another brand.

DD-WRT is compatible with this router (not with firmware 2.0 though). Usually solves most problems
anybody know which firmware version they're loaded with...

Thanks for the link. Was going to buy one of these but, given the issues folk are having I think I'll give it a miss.
Shame really as it was a Which best buy oO

I've got 4 WRT160Ns. I've never experienced the DNS issue discussed on that site. As all any domestic router does is forward DNS requests to your ISP's server, I'd be more suspicious of your ISP or some malware on your computer.

A router isn't going to have the software to send you to a particular different search engine when you've asked for one, or a different social networking site than the one you've asked for. A piece of malware, or an ISP profiting from search engine referrals for example, might.

I've had one of these for about 6 months and absolutely no problems.

I wouldnt rely to heavily on Amazon reviews for stuff like this, when I was looking for a router it was hard to find many that didnt have a large collection of 1 star reviews on Amazon.

Had the adsl one now at work for nearly 2 yrs. not perfect but then which wireless routers are, but as good as any others out there in my experience.
