Auto-sensing chooses the fastest connections possible on your 10/100 Mbps wide area network and four local area network ports. True Firewall (SPI) advanced security provides maximum protection from professional hackers. URL blocking and e-mail alerts provide parents with controls to limit access to inappropriate web sites and monitor children's access. Simple to install, you just follow the cues shown on your PC screen and your router will be up and running in no time. Smart Wizard auto-detects and configures for the best ISP connection, while UPnP (Universal Plug and Play) makes it easy to use your computers, gaming consoles and other client devices wireless and Ethernet for gaming, instant messaging, and other applications.

Uh... virgin media give these away.

I called up and recieved one for nothing at the end of last year. Didn't have to threaten that I was leaving or whatever before people chime in with that :P

Give it a shot! £29.99, or free to the only individuals that need to use this anyway :P

Dial 150! option 2, 2, 3 or something :)

No they dont... certainly not for new customers :)

Give it a go :) I'm super-cereal! :D

Just threaten to cancel by saying other providers give one for free when u sign up. Also if ur gonna buy one, buy a Buffalo Router as they are alot more faster AND reliable.
#5
Yeah. the netgears are like council routers. Get the job done, but don't go the extra mile really.

They're fine is all. and really easy to keep maintenance of.

Dont agree with the Buffalo thing at all, sorry. Prefer Netgear over Buffalo any day

I've only ever used netgear at home. So I can't really comment on reliability or range of its competitors.

Just confirmed this with a friend (texted him at work)

This router is free if you give a good enough reason to need one basically :P So yeah. Go have a bitch and claim what you're entitled to! :)

Sorry to have attacked your post like this btw edi! But you get enough heat, rep and other stuff I'm sure :P

I tried to get one free from them last November/December and they were totally clueless saying they once gave away free routers but not anymore. I already get my 20Mb dirt cheap with a free upgrade to 50Mb, which may not be guaranteed for everyone, and TV for only £2 but I couldn't swing a free router.

Maybe I just got the wrong person ... well people, I ended up talking to some tech support guy in the end who was wondering why I was transferred to him lol.

Anyway, now I really need one I think I'll get a gigabit one with 300Mb wifi and not a 100/54 because I don't want to be buying a giga one in a few years if I can help it ... actually might go search the one I like now and post it if I see a good deal.

Bought the exact same one from Amazon on Friday and received it this morning, so I'm gonna claim back the price difference. Wouldn't have noticed if it wasn't for your post :thumbsup:

I am a dummy when it comes to technology and it was REALLY easy for me to setup :-D

I thought DG834G was for landline(ADSL) only while this one is for cable.
Anyway thats what i remember from my time with AOL.

I should add though that Buffalo is a great alternative. cheaper than most but very reliable.

I got this one last week for use with my Virgin BB

http://svp.co.uk/product/tp-link_tl-wr642g_108mbps_wireless_router_4704#reviews

Its out of stock at the moment and any time it does come in stock it seems to sell out within 2 days but for £20 it seems to have lots of features, and the reviews give it 10/10 consistently.
#15
Blimey! Cheers edi and vbnmu - didn't read this at all and was just about to buy one for my aunty, oops!
#16
Virgin dont give them away free, they only do the free modems.

I say different having used both :p Buffalo over Netgear anyday.

DD WRT on these - top class, they make great alternatives to buying the Xbox 360 wireless adapter, get one second hand, flash DD WRT onto it and you can use client mode wireless, and distribute the wireless network it RECEIVES, out through the Ethernet ports at the back!

I used a different router, but any second hand one will do that you can flash ddwrt onto will work!

Agreed :thumbsup: Did this for the inlaws on the Buffalo. Very simple.

I can state for the record virgin media DO NOT give them away, only modems as previously stated, maybe in the past they did but not anymore im afraid! sorry! We just signed up for a package and even at the time explained we would need a wireless and no matter what, even threatening to leave, they will not give you one! they said they just dont have them anymore. That was last week, just so you know its pretty recent!! anyhoo. just thought id chime in! sorry! Good deal this though!
#21
I got one of these last year when I joined VM. Great routers, just plug in the modem VM supplied, then plug it into your PC. It then sets it all up for you. Don't forget if your not setting the wireless up, make sure its turned off. As if you ignore setting it up in the settings, it won't turn it off itself.
#22
Thankyou adgloride!

Why is everyone arguing against the fact that Virgin will give you one of these if you get the right person on the phone? Previously there was an offer that was not advertised offering one of these to every customer who had a connection better than 2mb. News got around via digitalspy and similar sites, and the offer was hushed up a bit.

Fact is this. Virgin Media's call centres are the same as any. New guys and girls going in and out every week. If you get someone who hasn't got a clue about this, then dial again. I'm only trying to save you a bit of money here!
#23
I just called and they said that the router is something you need to purchase yourselve from a shop. You cant even buy it from them so i think whatever free router deal they may have had on they dont now.

All things considering this is definately a good deal. Voted hot
#24
Sorry I just called Virgin Media
#25
Cold.

The Buffalo cable router is infinitely superior....better range, greater functionality, never drops a signal.

How's that?
#27
I had this router. It was rubbish. Sold it on ebay and got a Buffalo instead. Much better. Anyway, the price isn't even great for a cable router so voted cold. My far superior cost less than this including delivery.
