can i use this to get access to live on my 360 cause thats a good price and i have a cable modem
#2
good deal - this is the one we got through Virgin Media and it cost us £40.00 and £7.50 handling charge (boy was I so mad at that !!!)
#3
I got this free from Virgin Media a few months ago. First person I spoke to said that I could have it for half price, when I rang up to actually order it the guy said that they would do it for free!

Yes you can. I just changed to virgin and got this router on ebay for £17. My son's xbox picked up the wireless straight away with no messing around!!
#5
I have this and it is excellent
#6
Just blag it off Virgin if you're with them regardless of what tariff you're on. It does help if you're on XL though.

i`m only on the smallest package so i doubt i would get it
#8
NETGEAR can be a pain to install but they have a reasonable good customer service. Mine was connected in two minutes (after I had tried for 2 hrs myself). Call cost 8p/min on BT.
#9
I already use Netgear for Wireless Internet and just bought this one for a friend wanting me to set up her internet through Virgin Media.

I have DG834G which is fantastic and I used it with my ADSL before moved on to Virgin and now I use this as a switch while have alternates for DHCP and NAT, still works perfectly for wireless switch.

Its worth a try - i was going to switch to Sky but then said I would stay with Virgin, but downgraded to the smallest package. I said i wanted a free wireless router and they gave me that one ^^^
#12
I have a DG834G which is a great modem that I bought for £50 a couple years ago. Connects to 360 etc..with ease. Suspect this is pretty mcuh the same. Great deal if someones looking.
#13
It's all about Linksys these days.
banned#14
i bought this a year ago this was arround £40or 50 , but i bought from ebay £18, gys this superb wireless:)
#15
Think I'll hold out for a DG834G - on the other hand...
#16


Has anyone used the above company before? The website seems a bit dodgy. They are selling Sony 40W4500 for £780 whereas the cheapest elsewhere was more than £850!

Any replies would be good! Thanks!

EDIT:

Just found this tread on HUKD

Seems like I won't be ordering from them!
#17
Really good router had mine for 2 years without a problem
#18
Just paid £22.50 (inc p&p) for a second hand one off Ebay :roll:
#19
I've had this router last year when I had Virgin and it's no good for wireless. The firmware has a bug whereby if you transfer about 4-5gb of data through the wireless it will just go down and you have to turn it off and on.

For a regular user, 4-5gb is about a month of browsing but if you transfer big files between PCs and laptops inside your network (i.e. video files, MP3,...etc) or if you stream files inside your network, this router is no use.

It's an exellent router otherwise, despite lack of advanced features which most people don't use/need.
#20
I've had the v7 for 2 years now, no such problem with the 4-5GB you mention?

Have you got an earlier version of the router?
#21
Virgin media customers - call 150 (it's free)

Find out if you are on a rolling contract

Compared what i got and paid with Virgin to BT deals

Got upgraded from 2mb to 10mb/paid £4.50 less per month/same router for [COLOR="Red"]FREE[/COLOR]! -£7.50 delivery)

All L (10mb) and above customers get this router free and only pay for delivery

Good price, but I've had a couple of Netgear routers and they both lasted just over a year before conking out. I'm trying a linksys from Currys for the same price at the moment, it has better range and looks nicer (no sticky up aerials).:thumbsup:
#24
I've had Netgear wired routers and they have been rock solid. I've got this as a v6 connected to Virgin and so far it has been fine, uptime of about 2 weeks. But I have heard that quite a few people have had problems, google netgear wgr614 problem and you'll see what I mean.

I have the Netgear WPN824 (MIMO) and it does the same thing... I've also noticed the problem on a philips router (the one thats always on HDUK with the free wireless USB adapter) - both on latest firmware

I've upgraded to the latest firmware (can't remember the version though) before I decided to sell the router and gave up on Neatgear completely as they seem to have this bug even in the latest models.

Try copying few gigs from one computer to another wirelessly and I can guarantee you will lose wireless connectivity until you restart the router.

Bigpockets are doing a TP-Link TL-WR641G with better specs i.e. 108Mbps transfer and 100M range (or 200M extended range) for £18.69 + P&P. I've ordered one for the house, and if it's as good as the ADSL2 modem/router I have at the office then i'll be well happy.

I have to say, I have a netgear wireless router (can't remember the exact model off the top of my head) and I've never experienced this...

I've definitely transferred HUGE amounts of files between my PC and the multiple xboxes running throughout my house, never had it do this. Although this might be a more recent bug as my router is now getting on a bit.

I've voted hot anyway, it's a good price.

Do both computers have to be wireless or can one be wired? because i've backed up the g/f's wireless laptop to my networked media centre before and haven't rebooted the router in 3 months. The hardware revisions and firmware versions are different things, i specifically went for a V7 as i'd heard of some problems with earlier models, but not this one in particular.

Stream big DVR-MS files around without any problem either.

My mum is with Virgin and was paying around £30 a month. We told her to phone up and ask for a better deal and a free router and she got it by saying she would leave Virgin otherwise. So now she's paying £10 less a month so she's very happy!
#32
Have one and these are good routers, if you buy one though check the firmware version against the latest on the netgear site the later firmware fixes many bugs , earlier versions had
#33
Very good price. I bought one of these last year for £33 and I've found it to be very reliable as well as easy to set up. I can't understand earlier comments about problems with large files as I pretty much download 3-4GB per day through this router without a hitch. :-D

I got this router free from Virgin Media and didn't pay for delivery! Just threaten to leave because its too expensive (if you are close to running out of contract or about to renew). This is what I did and they are now giving me TV - L Broadband - L Phone - M for £28 + free wireless router (no postage fee). If they refuse, shut phone and call again lol thats what I did and got there in the end the 3rd time! :thumbsup:

Competition is the best thing for consumers, products become better and cheaper (now we need to do something about gas/electricity suppliers :x)
