Five 10/100 (1 WAN and 4 LAN) Ethernet ports with auto-sensing technology.

Modem type None


I guess that means it's actually an WNR1000?

well, if its a cable modem, yes it will work on virgin media cable.

good router.. its hard to say, most common problem with "bad" routers are that users dont know how to properly set them up. few years ago ive bought d-link adsl router for 3£ on .bay, just because seller dont know how to set it up, and for him it was probably crap. othervise some of the routers with good reviews doesnt perform like i expect, so at the moment i have a belkin n1 vision /cable/ for sale, even if it has good reviews. if somebody wants to know whats the problem with it just pm me, i will explain if it will work good for u.

What's the speed of it for wireless G devices? I had a netgear wireless N adapter that only ran at 58mb/s on a G network.

netgear stuff is usually good for home.....just avoid their stora backup product

if it was belkin id say avoid like the plague....better off waving an antenna manually!!

I had the ADSL version the Netgear DGN1000 and it was an absolute nightmare getting a stable connection and if you have the original PlayStation 3 its incompatible with it.
This version might be different but its something to check before hand.
#12
nice but be aware
"It isn't a full-blown 802.11n wireless router (its connection speed tops out at 150 megabits per second rather than 300Mbs) and the Netgear N150 Wireless Modem Router DGN1000 only has one antenna"

What's the speed of it for wireless G devices? I had a netgear wireless N adapter that only ran at 58mb/s on a G network.


yes, because its g network. nothing will run faster

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/IEEE_802.11


I get what your saying, but I don't agree with it - I had a netgear wireless G router and G adapter and they both ran at 108mb/s but when I used the netgear wireless N adapter it was only 58mb/s.

Here's a similar D-link one (I can't remember what router mine was) -

Wireless Signal Rates* With Automatic Fallback -
• D-Link 108G: 108Mbps

See ^ 108Mbps? So if 58 is the limit for G is the above router wireless N? lol

your max speed will dictated by the max transmission speed your router can deliver (if its G rated then 'marketing' figure is usually 56m/s, so not sure how you managed 58mb/s...real speeds are a little less depending on local environment) - this is regardless of what apdater you use...if you changed your router then in theory if you use the same n adapter you should see an increase in speed - with this router up to 150mb/s

i always take these quoted figures with a pinch of salt though.....i got nowhere near 300mb/s on wireless N and ive near given up on wireless and its far too unreliable for my liking and not a patch on homeplug AV (i get at least 113mb/s to 190mb/s - though this is measure slightly differently to w/less [to confuse people, grr!!] or gigabit up to 1000mb/s)

well, that like airplus, d-link call this super G.

that specs for your card

*108Mbps Super G MIMO Wireless PCI card for desktop PC use
*New MIMO (Multiple Input - Multiple Output) technology for enhanced performance and signal quality
*108Mbps Super G technology for enhanced performance with other D-Link Super G products


so it will work only with d-link router with super G technology.

with other routers 99% only usuall G speed, means 54MBs
#17
Oh I get you now, it's some kind of special G+ technology that only works with the same devices. I know you never really need or get that, it was just a disappointment to see the wireless N one show up as half the speed of the old G one. lol

I am having trouble with the range of our router, some of the rooms in our house dont get signal. The router is the standard router that came from virgin, Would I need to buy a new router (like this one) or is there anything I can do with the set-up to increase its range.

Thanks to anyone who helps!

First you can try changing the channel in the router. There are typically 13 channels, the channels that are most commonly used in the UK are 1, 6 and 11. Your router may have an automatic channel selection, but you can still experiment with manually changing the channels. Personally I would buy a Tenda W311R+ router from ebuyer to add N capability which should extend the range. Some one would need to help you with the setup of that though probably. There's other options for example homeplugs, using homeplugs with a wireless access point. Linking two wireless access points or routers together. Try changing channels first it's the simplest option and can work.

If you are running wireless and using a windows operating system google for "inssider". It's a very useful (FREE) utility that displays all the detected wireless networks, their signal strength and operating channel. If you find that your wireless is on the same channel as another one nearby then you can change the channel on your wireless router and see what affect that has on your signal level.
The house next door to ours is rented, so whenever new people move in I use Inssider to find out what channel they are using and move mine if needed :)

Yep, Virgin's D-Link unit is crap. It won't reliably give out IP addresses via DHCP. It works ok for a few days and then stops giving an address to any new device. Only solutions are rebooting the box or giving everything fixed IP's. Total crap and the only router where I've ever come across this problem.
