Hi, some advice please. Is this a better option than an 11g BB router?
#4
Correct me if I'm wrong but this won't work with a standard phone socket. Its not a modem router.

Yep, that's absolutely right; you'll need to purchase a modem aswell.

And WH Smith can't spell Broadband correctly.

802.11n is pointless for most home users, unless you're doing things locally between machines. If you're just connecting a laptop to your 8mbit ADSL and going straight out to the Internet, it's pointless. Although at this price there won't be much price difference between this and 802.11g

Yes, it's spelt "ADSL". Using the term "broadband" to describe ADSL is lame marketing rubbish and when describing a product like this potentially incorrect (does it support ALL types of broadband connection?)

And obviously, this will only work at the draft N speeds if you happen to have a draft N enabled laptop or draft N wireless card in your PC.
It is better than G broadband! But i would always stick with NetGear or even Belkin products (Belkin have good returns warranty).
Additionally if an item is faulty and still within its 12 month guarantee, the seller should refund reasonable postage costs as well as not charging postage to replace!

What exactly is "G broadband"?
#14
Sorry, meant 'G for broadband'. 'N' has a greater wireless range up to 300m, think 'G' is around 100m. But you do need an 'N' wireless connection in your laptop or PC.

What exactly is "G broadband"?

Here's a quick summary from this site. :)
http://compnetworking.about.com/cs/wireless80211/a/aa80211standard.htm
According to them, G is an amalgamation of A + B

* Pros of 802.11a - fast maximum speed; regulated frequencies prevent signal interference from other devices
* Cons of 802.11a - highest cost; shorter range signal that is more easily obstructed

* Pros of 802.11b - lowest cost; signal range is good and not easily obstructed
* Cons of 802.11b - slowest maximum speed; home appliances may interfere on the unregulated frequency band

* Pros of 802.11g - fast maximum speed; signal range is good and not easily obstructed
* Cons of 802.11g - costs more than 802.11b; appliances may interfere on the unregulated signal frequency

* Pros of 802.11n - fastest maximum speed and best signal range; more resistant to signal interference from outside sources
* Cons of 802.11n - standard is not yet finalized; costs more than 802.11g; the use of multiple signals may greatly interfere with nearby 802.11b/g based networks.
