If you're after a cheap wireless N router for cable then this seems to be a good deal. It's got some very good reviews on the ebuyer site.

The NEW Plexus W302R Wireless-N Cable/DSL router employs advanced MIMO technology and extends the wireless network coverage greatly. Compatible with IEEE802.11n and IEEE802.11g/b standards, it can provide up to 300Mbps stable transmission rate. Additionally, it integrates router, wireless access point, four-port 10/100 switch and a firewall in one. Its extraordinary intelligent software, Setup Wizard, makes the devices installation more convenient. It supports manual disable SSID broadcast. The advanced encryptions (such as 64/128/152-bit WEP, 802. 1x, WPA and WPA2), packet filtering and MAC address filtering can protect your network from malicious attack. Moreover, the W302R can be managed through any local/remote Web management interface. So it is the best choice for SOHOs and small-sized enterprises.

Voted hot - just read the reviews on Ebuyer and aside from occasional glitch here and there everyone spoke really highly. Might just get one too, although my g-router is perfectly fine at the moment ....
#4
is there one as good for adsl?

I've got one of these myself, certainly not bad for the price and full of features however I have experienced a few compatibility issues and certain websites seem to not load possibly due to a MTU or NAT issue (very few overall though).

These are manufactured and designed by chinese networking company 'Tenda' and as a result the instructions and manuals are not translated the best at times and there is a lack of help/support available due to them not being too popular in other countries, however at the same time the setup is practically non-existant and the router works straight from the box.

There is plenty of configuration/options available in the backend for those of you who like to tinker with the settings and the router also supports dual SSID's allowing you to setup two methods of connection which is useful for devices like Nintendo DS which does not support the latest encryption technologies as you don't have to completely lower your networking security for the device.

The range, connectivity/speed is all fantastic and I've had no issues there.

anyone with problems with these and xbox live ?
#7
That would scare me sat next to the computer lol

Heat added though looks aside good price for a N router

Hi, these will work well with xbox live providing you set it up correctly. They won't work immedietly but it isn't too difficult to get things going (just usual settings as you would for any other router which isn't branded xbox live compatible)

You will need to give your xbox a dedicated IP on the "DHCP server client list" on the "DHCP server" section and then assign that IP to the "DMZ Settings" on the "Virtual Server" section in the control panel at http://192.168.0.1 - this means you won't be able to use the DMZ for any other IP as you can only assign ONE IP to the DMZ at any one time.

Once you have done that it'll allow the router to pass the connection test on XBOX Live and you will be able to play, otherwise if you don't do that it may get stuck on the MTU check and probably won't work at all.

The connection test will probably report the NAT status as "moderate" on the first try which is OK and online play will generally be absolutely fine however you can fix this completely and set it to "OPEN" by opening up the xbox live port ranges under the "Virtual Server" section. There is plenty of help online in various forums listing which ports need to be opened up.

Im Using one of these and they are great.....voted hot
#11
Are these better than the ones you see on eBay for about £26?

We're currently looking for one but not too sure what's good and what's not.

:?
Any router that has to be put into DMZ to play on live is S**t in my book cheap or not

Little tip for you too.. Once DMZ is setup you will not need to open ports on the virtual server tab as DMZ turns the firewall off for the IP you set.
If there is ever a virus that emerges for the 360 and your in DMZ then your screwed
#14
A lot of conflicting information :?.

If your computer can browse the internet when hooked up to this router the 360 should be able to pass the connection test also. If it fails further up the checklist then either XBL is down or it hasn't been connected properly.

If you need to do any of those things, then your Router is junk.

Any good modern Router (with proper UPnP support) will run XBox Live with NAT Open - no DMZ required.

DMZs are relics from the old days, before Router manufacturers figured out UPnP !

That's completely wrong :)

XBox Live needs a two way connection - a NAT Router only allows unsolicited outbound traffic, but not unsolicted inbound.
There used to be various workarounds for this, like the DMZ method posted above - but all are now redundant, because your XBox will automatically set up it's own Port Forwarding through Universal Plug N Play. Your XBox indicates to you how well it's succeeding, with it's "NAT Staus" box - there are three states, and "NAT Open" is what you need to see - anything else, indicates a ****** router.

Just because your PC can get on the internet, doesn't mean your NAT is functioning in the way that XBox Live requires !
#17
That's completely wrong :)

Inbound connectivity is not required to simply pass the connection test.
#18
Good value wireless N card to go with it: http://www.ebuyer.com/product/139902#
#19
Considering buying this, but the lack of the word 'modem' anywhere in the description makes me worried i'll need one to connect this too.

Anyone know if this is true? Do I need this router, and a seperate modem, or just this magic box?
#20
This is a cable router. It will only work for people with an ethernet modem.

Erm, only "NAT Open" is a "pass" of the connection test ! If you're seeing either of the other two states, then you've failed.
You're just talking about whether or not the XBox 360 can see the internet - but that's a fry cry from fully functioning Live :)

And you certainly do need inbound connectivity, to see NAT Open...

A pass in my book is being able to see the outcome of the NAT test without failing on a previous step as indicated by Millenix; a strict NAT and non-existent forwarding will not cause a MTU check fail.
#23
Simply setting up the DMZ on the xbox IP WILL NOT PASS the xbox connection test as it'll be detected as NAT "moderate" (however you can play on xbox live), you DO need to open up the port ranges additionally before the test passes as "OPEN". I am simply stating the case with THIS router, not any other.

I have not tested the router enough to find out how to get it working with LIVE without setting the IP up with the DMZ however it is possible that now I have opened up my port ranges it would work without DMZ, I just haven't got round to trying it yet. All I can remember is that straight from the box the router would fail the test either on the MTU check or another check before that, it would vary from time to time which check failed and was not consistant so I assumed the firewall was kicking in and preventing the xbox from going any further. Either way, a "virus" on the xbox360 is unlikely and so-far completely non-existant despite the console being around for a good few years so I doubt there's anything to worry about using DMZ on the xbox 360, which probably has it's own software firewall built in anyway.

The router certainly isn't "sh*t" especially for the price; given that any other half-decent 300Mb wireless-n router would cost you at least £50 (or around £80 when they came out) since I last checked. Most importantly the range, connectivity and speed is fantastic. All-round the router is perfect for somone who doesn't want to spend a lot of money on networking equipment and simply wants to get online at good speeds!
#24
Well i took the plunge and ive got it all up and running within an hour and that includes the pesky XB360 which was one of my main concerns - very happy with it considering the extremely cheap price tag
#25
Mine's going back. Intermittent disconnects which I can't cure despite 2 days of trying - shame, it had potential. I'll try a replacement and hopefully fair better
#26
ive now found that i cant cannot to my friend at all on xbox live he only lives local but can connot to other people , yeah ive opened the ports and also put the router in the DMZ and set the 360 onto a static IP - is it my router or his im lost
