Should work fine, mine was despatched 2 hours after ordering.

It should be straightforward, fingers crossed !
#12
If your telephone is connected to the BT exchange + infrastructure then that's a standard ADSL(+/2?) connection which this Modem is intended for.

If you have a Cable connection (fibre network) then this will not operate as a modem however it will operate as a router / wireless gateway from a given Ethernet connection.
#13
Mine arrived today - looks great and all cables & accessories supplied - even a UK adaptor.

Will set it up this evening.
#14
Let us know, mines not here probably delayed or lost
#15
Mine arrived yesterday and as Grumpyoldhector says it has a uk plug adapter. Good service from play.com to get it to us so quickly. Won't be setting mine up until Boxing Day though.
#16
is this any good?

Was originally sold by ocuk at a much higher price in the year (EDIT : Just noticed the OP already mentioned this) >

I'd say it's definitely worth the price and a good deal.

Yeah as long as you know your login and password for Sky which can be extracted from the router using one of the following methods >

If it's the dlink dsl-2640S then you need a java app to do the extraction >

Does N make much more difference over b/g?

Does N make much more difference over b/g?
For 'internal' transfers between computers on your network you should see a great increase, the maximum speed you can achieve is 300mb/s compared to 54 for b/g but id expect max of 100 for n and 25/30 for g.
On the 'internet' you will see hardly any difference unless youve got a super fast connection, we are talking 50mb plus.

The range of your router will increase, so you can connect from further away but you will need to use that USB adaptor included to get the increased speed or any other N device.

What is your ISP? I am giving up trying to setup this router on O2 LLU. It does not pick up a dynamic IP at all, but it works if manually use the IP assigned on my original O2 Wireless II box. My package is Premium NO static IP

£60 notes from eBuyer 18 months ago?! it then halved in price IIRC.

Great deal. On checking the USB adapter is compatible with the Seagate Freeagent Theater+ which was a HUKD melt down a few months back, so if you now want to put your media player on your wireless network just shove adapter in the back.

mate nothing to do with DNS... I cannot even get a public facing IP, therefore I am not even connecting to the outside world.

BTW O2 DNS servers are:

No it is 87.194.255.154 for dynamic IP.

If the you want to use O2 Home Broadband with your own router, you may need to enter some settings for it to work properly.



Some routers come set up correctly. Others will come with a set up CD or wizard to help you get connected. You'll need to refer to the manufacturer's instructions to find out exactly how to enter these details.



If your router has an ADSL2+ setting, make sure it's enabled. ADSL2+ is the technology we use to get a high-speed connection into your home.



There are different settings for our service depending on whether you are using our standard service or our Home Access service. Settings for both are provided below:




Standard settings (Standard, Premium, Pro, The Basics, The All Rounder, and The Works packages)



These are the other settings you'll need to enter into your router:



ISP name: O2 Home Broadband
Multiplexing method: LLC-Based
VPI: 0
VCI: 101
Username: leave blank
Password: leave blank
Domain name: leave blank
IP address type: this depends on whether you chose our static IP address option or not:
If you didn't choose our static IP address option, set this to dynamic IP
If you did choose our static IP address, enter the IP address printed in your welcome letter
DNS servers: choose to get these dynamically from the Internet provider
NAT: enable
Primary DNS server: 87.194.255.154
Secondary DNS server: Leave blank




I never said it was anything to do with this, just pointed out the dns servers are wrong :)

Thanks geezer.....It is more complicated than you think

It shouldn't be m8, this router should work fine with these settings, very few fail to work. Have you definitely changed the VCI to 101 and not entered a username/password?

I have confirmed with O2 and 4 MAC can be attached to the IP.

I have just telnet'ed into O2 Wireless II box and the arp table is showing the MAC of my VoIP adaptor attached to the WAN interface. Later I will flush the arp table + dettach the WAN interface to release the IP and re-attach using the TP-Link MAC. Hopefully it will work. Can't do now because OH is using the connection.

And yes, as you have said: it should be straightforward. It might be my VoIP adaptor in the middle (Although I had disconnected it, the arp table didn't clear the entry).

Apologies for the delay in my reply but the news is very good!

I initially setup as standard for 7 wired devices (+switch) + 9 wireless without a problem.

In fact I didn't have to enter the ADSL username + password as the unit extracted this info somehow??
You select your IP from the list and the data appears???
If anyone else knows about, or experiences this please post a reply.

Once connected, all devices operated without a hitch.

Also note that this unit is very quick to negotiate an ADSL Connection so re-booting is not the pain it used to be.

I have seen no difference (loss) in 'g' performance over the Netgear DG834 but there is a big difference with 'N' performance.
Actually this in an Nx3 device which has the extended range & speed!

USB dongle worked out of the box once drivers were loaded although the unit is Not Samsung TV compatible.

Over Christmas, new challenges appeared, including the infamous Black OPs PC setup - I opened all the recommended Steam + application Ports on the appropriate IP and away it went without a hitch.

I also put the XBox with fixed IP in the DMZ and NAT is open.

The DSi is a bit of an issue though as it requires a lower security connection for all modes!

Also Pingtest.net reports a 100% packet loss on wired with firewall switched on - and 0% with firewall off so I have yet to figure that.

All in all I am VERY happy and would highly recommend this unit!
