If it only has WEP encryption it's not going to be secure in the slightest.
#3

#4

I wouldnt touch this router unless you don't mind it conking out.
it can't seem to handle more then 4 wireless connections at a go.
also can't handle more then 20 connections which is a bit annoying if you like me have loadsa webpages open are torrenting listening to internet radio and basically doing loadsa things over the network at a go.

not hot at all.
no wonder its going for less then 20.

You can get good brand name ones for £30 - I would pay the extra tenner.

ok - interesting stuff thx folks. I have a home pc, and a laptop that I would like to share the broadband connection (poss at the same time) - is this going to be possible with this and if so what's the best setup to use or is there a better option? (Virgin / NThell provider)

Thanks

yes it will be fine. They will work at the same time. Just plug the NTL modem into the WAN/Internet port on it and connect the computers wirelessly or with ethernet cables. If you use wireless you will wanna set up a WEP encryption too, which is really easy and will be explained in the manuel. it should all just work out of the box :)
#10
offtopic but i just purchased a buffalo router from play.com for £30 delivered and is far more superior and secure. worth spending that extra tenner.
#11
I've a collection of dead routers at home.
Have had 1 dlink one and two budget e-buyer ones. They all did a good job for a year or two but if you're like me you'll probably hardly ever turn them off and eventually something conks out.
I've now got a Belkin which has a lifetime guarantee - funnily enough two years later and it's still going strong.

i have had a Linksys WRT54G with custom Firmware that i got years about maybe 2003 or earlier and its been on 24/7 since its its still fine :)

The spec says it has wpa so I don't know why people are saying its not secure. Looks fine to me.

I do get a little sick of hearing the whole 'WEP is totally unsecure' argument.

Yes there are now programs around like Aircrack which allow you to crack a WEP key, but in order to do that you have to capture 100's of thousands of packets from the Wireless device (which can take days, and assumes they are in good enough range) and only THEN when you have enough packets can you attempt to crack the key (which can take as little as 15 minutes). What the mainstream media have done is concentrated on the 15 minutes part, hence 'WEP can be cracked in 15 minutes' - nothing like a bit of media mis-information eh? Anyone remember the whole Y2K bug thing? I remember an ITV news reporter actually standing there and telling the nation that their Microwaves could blow up :roll: what a maroon!

If you're a home user - WEP is fine, there's no need to be so paranoid about it...

Rubbish.
Try flooding and you can have enough packets in minute-two!
WEP is totally insecure and shouldn't be used by anyone. Go and see backtrack.

Why bother to crack the WEP key - lots of routers have no security set.

With WEP set you will be ok. Use WPA if security is an issue.

would this router work with TalkTalk ADSL

No - it is for cable. It will not plug into a BT line.

Anyone confirmed whether this will run as a wireless bridge?
#20
It's £19.99 now, it looks a bit cheap and nasty, although I can't say it is.
#21
I got my buffalo from ebuyer for £25. It looks loads better than this and handles WPA security.

A £6 saving is wiped out as soon as someone hacks you or it breaks due to it's poor build quality. Not voting cold because I can't see anything equivalent for the same price, but it's not hot by any stretch of the imagination.

I pick up four wireless signals in my house. None are unsecured, mine is WPA, the other three are WEP. I'm personally glad that WEP is still so widespread as it means the risk to my network is virtually nil.
#22
Hi did anyone discover with this had WPA security??

Thanks
