Red Hot if they honour the cash back from that company.

Ive picked one up at that price.
#2

But start price via that link is £62.98 ??
#3
Its a great price without the reduction. It could be a misprice. If this is honoured by means of cashback aswell this deal should get pretty toasty!
#5
Good price but please be aware, this wireless router is for cable/dsl only...NOT for your standard BT Broadband. The ADSL version(WAG320N) is a lot more money but has good reports. Linksys have a bit of a history with not making it clear whether its a cable/dsl router or an adsl/standard broadband router, I've picked up a few Linksys routers cheap in places like PCWorld because people buy the wrong thing.
#6
Anybody Used one of these?
Can I connect it to my ADSL router via cable and use it as an access point?

So I shouldn't buy this if I have O2 broadband. I am just sick of the original O2 wireless box and want to change it!
#8
Form seems like it just requires a serial number so I would imagine it would work for cashback via a separate site although the ebuyer site does say to also attach the form "together with your original sales receipt".

I don't see why this would not work with all internet connections that have a separate modem.
#9
it will work with all internet connections if you have an adsl modem with a ethernet port. Or you can use it as an access point but beware of some further configuration.
just to make it clear that he is suggesting you buy from the cheap site, and print cashback form from ebuyer to claim for it. :)
#10
Hotter than my deal, purchased!
#11
Good price as a quality wireless router (if able to use the claim form), but this model does not support access point/bridge/repeater modes unless you are prepared to play around with DD-WRT firmware.
#12
How does anyone know whether or not the cashback isn't exclusive to Ebuyer?

The PDF has no terms and conditions and isn't bridged through to Cisco/Linksys website, its part of Ebuyers website, therefore what is to say that Linksys will honour the 15 quid? Item clearly from the receipt will not be bought from Ebuyer, and as we are not even aware of the terms and conditions of the deal can easily be rejected.

Cold deal as far as I am concerned, it relies heavily on presumption.

About the WAG320N, not quite good as you may have heard. I bought one from ebuyer last December, it lock up once a day at random time, tried factory settings, redo update firmware etc does not help. Indeed it is a nice kit when it is working, but unfortunately that is not my case :p

It is also very hot at bottom. I would recommend to hand it on the wall vertically for better cooling. Personally I disassembled the core i7 stock fan to put heatsink under the router :p

For under 100 quid, I believe it is the only router with simutaneously 2.4+5Ghz on board, others are either 2.4 or 5, not same time. The USB ports for media sharing was not working great last year, dont know if they improved firmware since then

I ended up with flashing the firmware to 50% and unplugged the power on purpose for returning. Bought a Billion 7800N for absolutely rock solid connection - but that is almost 100 quid more than this price

Take care of reivews from customers

Many negative feedbacks on its customer services!
#15
I have the WAG version (ADSL modem/router) of this router and the wireless range is fantastic. It still has the awful dated Linksys web interface though. The router can now be auto configured using a setup cd though which makes it easier for novices.

No. Just find a sky router (netgear based) or Netgear DG834xx (where xx is G or GT) and flash it with DGTeam firmware. Then go to kitz and set it up using this info :

http://www.kitz.co.uk/routers/Netgear_DG834GT_Be_Setup.htm

I use the DG834GT with DGTeam firmware and it's rock solid on O2 broadband. I get not far off a 20Mb connection with 1.9Mb upstream. Yes I have more than one router, I have about 5 or 6! lol not all in use at the same time though naturally :)

You might want wireless N speed/range in that case you won't want the router/s I've mentioned above. EDIT : Forgot to mention this router and the WAG320N have gigabit capability, so that is something to factor in if you need faster file transfers between computers on your home network.
#17
Wow.. Looks amazing.. Thanks for your information, I am temped to try now!:)
#18
Thanks for the tips & info fishmaster. I'm fairly new to O2 and I'll keep a look out for the models mentioned. :thumbsup:
#19
Will this plug straight into sky bb??

Will this plug straight into sky bb??


This is a cable modem router suitable for Virgin cable etc. For Sky BB you want an ADSL modem/router. The difference is that a cable router uses an RJ45 ethernet WAN port to connect to a cable router whereas an ADSL modem/router has a built in modem which uses an RJ11 port to connect directly to your telephone line. The version of this router that is suitable for ADSL broadband is the Linksys WAG320N, which if you find at this price I will buy 10 of them :)

It's also against the T&Cs to use a non-Sky supplied router. They won't give you the username and password to make one work anyway...

Doesn't stop you hacking the netgear one to
a) login and get the username and password
b) overwrite the firmware to use the router for a different connection / sell it

Also, even though this is a 'cable modem' / 'ethernet' router, it can probably be used as an over the top wireless access point solution.
#23
Remember that although its a Linksys its actually made by Cisco! Scorching hot deal!
#24
Now £62.98inc. vat less £15 CASHBACK = £47.98 plus P&P

Still showing as original posters price for me.

I think your a bit muddled here. Routers do not neccesarily mean they are for adsl or cable modems. In other words, router does Not include modem unless specified.

Nice one mate, didnt know this could be 3rd party flashed :)

Though I had found how to work with O2 months ago... but a good pointer for others

Thanks great find ordered two. H+R
#29
Paid over £80 for this in PC world a few weeks ago. At £25 it's a very hot deal!

Edit - Did not realise this is the cable version, I bought the ADSL version. Feel a bit happier about my £80 now.
#30
Bought 2 - hot! :thumbsup: I've always been able to use these dsl routers as an access point and to extend my network by just setting a new LAN IP as static and within the existing network, and making sure the DHCP server is turned off... You lose any of the diagnostic features and automatic firmware updates, but then it stays out of the way and, as long as your PCs have got gigabit (and your laptops have got wireless-N) network cards you've got as close to gigabit speeds in your wireless network as is currently possible!
#31
stonking deal for cable owners tbh. No chance you'll get a decent branded router with GIGABIT interface, that being the key feature for me!
#32
For those with problems with the stock linksys firmware, you can always use a decent firmware such as DD-WRT on these. I have been running v24sp2(build 13493M) for a few weeks now on the 320N without any issues - rock solid.

I have ADSL but use this router as a router and use the crappy modem/router that my ISP provided as a modem in bridge mode.

Absolute steal at this price.

Hope this helps.
#33
Been looking for a new wireless router for quite some time now (With wirelessN) although this looks like a great price i don't like the idea of the lockups i have read a lot about.

You can make the O2 router act as a modem (bridge mode) and then connect the Linksys router to it:

It is now £71.74 without rebate!
#36

#37

Had one in my basket from last night, order placed at the lower price. :D

Will use it as a 5GHz AP chained off my Sky router.
