Anyone got one? Has come up on here a few times before.
#3
Bought one of these. Wouldn't work with my (TalkTalk) router.

Good price assuming no compatibility issues.

I have never heard of Tenda but seems a good price. Would probably go with something like a Buffalo Router

With Virgin Media and this router works a treat. Never had no problems with it. Got 2 Xbox 360s hooked up and no Lag, So no complaints from me. Heat added.

I've got one on VM and it does what it says on the tin (so much better than the netgear it replaced!)

Was it straight forward to get all set up? Ebuyer reviews are a bit hit and miss about it, mentioning lack of security on the network?

Does anyone know if this supports vpn tunnelling?
#9
I've also gt one connected to my Virgin Media modem. Easy to set up, and very reliable.
#10
Thanks, just ordered. Got two last time and have used them both.
#11
Can't go wrong for that price, eBuyer reviews seem fairly positive.. bought!
#12
i can't stress enough how good these routers are they beat much more expensive ones hands down comes with a very simple to follow cd which sets it up for you a sure winner in my books :)
#13
In my experience, this manufacturer make poor drivers for the hardware which is already not of a standard I would advise other people to purchase.

I don't have this model of router, however.

I got one and had to send it back. Can't fathom out how people are praising them to the heavens. Maybe I was just unlucky.

What sort of drivers would you require to use a router?

Completely irrelevant comment since this is a router /access point.
#18
I have two of these routers with a view to linking them up at some point. You can do an open scan so it's easy to detect the other router and apply settings to link them automatically. I believe this router can also use WPA encryption over WDS, so for making a secure wireless distribution system it's excellent, as most routers can only use WEP.
#19
All our bits and bobs are 802.11g. The lappy in the back bedroom sometimes looses the connection. Will this improve the signal to cover the whole house.

Possibly, it depends on where your router is situated and the channel it's transmitting on and various distances you want the signal to travel in the house. It's possible to link two of these routers together to extend the wireless range.

Here is a guide to the router and creating a wireless bridge with it >

Was pretty easy. Put in the CD and it ran through everything, telling you what wires go were. Security was fine, gave the options of what you wanted (WEP, WPA ETC) . Very straight forward.

Wow, great price!

I take it this is running on 2.4ghz rather than 5?

Does it work ok with BT ADSL?

it does says Supports xDSL/Cable MODEM but not sure

what do you think of this one at around £9 (BT only)

The N150 / W311R+ is a cable router / access point. You can connect it to your existing router but it doesn't connect directly to any ADSL service as it doesn't have a built in ADSL modem.

The ADSL router you linked to at Amazon will work on BT as suggested on the site. If you're a novice at setting up ADSL routers then you might need some help from some one more experienced. This can also be said of the Tenda where you would need to disable DHCP and assign a static IP to the Tenda if you are connecting to an existing ADSL modem router, the purpose of this would be to add Wireless N capability and possibly more range to your existing router.

I wonder whether anyone could help!

Would this work as an access point to connect to a internet capable TV?

I have two of these - used with WDS, one plugged into my Orange Livebox downstairs - the second in the study; for a few specific reasons.

The iPad, iPhone, and I expect (though I haven't tested it yet) the iPod touch cannot connect to the "n" network when a passphrase is used with the Tenda. Laptops, XBOX, etc all work find.

Fortunately, I still keep a wireless g signal on a different channel for the iRange.

The firmware upgrade didn't work for me. I never tried a firmware downgrade.
I've not given up yet, but as fishmaster points out, there are definitely issues with the IOS.

I should also add, this doesn't affect Mac computers, - my iMac connects - just IOS.

The reason ipad, iphone etc don't connect is due to a firmware problem, please see the link I provided earlier for a solution (downgrade to a working firmware 3.2.5.e or upgrade to latest firmware 3.3.6.b) Thanks.

Ebuyer also have a link to the latest firmware as they state this fixes a known firewall issue with the router.

Ah ok, it seems possible that 3.2.5.e might fix the problem then.

Yeah - seems like a few have had a success.

I'm going to keep a second g SSID going though; as I prefer the firewall fix of the latest firmware.

Great devices, these things do a lot for the price; and are fun to configure.

I purchased one of these a long time ago when on offer to use as a switch + access point from a Delovo Home network unit in the loft as Wifi from the ground floor ADSL router was patchy in the loft.

I plugged the unit into the mains, then connected a network cable to the LAN ports (not WAN), disabled the wifi on my laptop, connected to the Access point, set the security for Wireless, saved the settings. I plugged the WAN connection on the Access point into the Delovo. We have a FoxSAT HDR FreeSAT unit and a WD Live box in the loft. I plugged both of these into the LAN side of the tenda. I entered the security details into laptops and enabled Wifi. One year no problems. We get streaming HD in the FreeSAT via BBC iPlayer, YouTube etc on the WD live and really good Wifi.

I noticed on the comments at ebuyer people had used these units to bridge. We had a new TV downstairs but the Delovo home network would not work in that room due to poor mains cabling! I got 2 of these units linked them as a bridge. The TV has full HD iPlayer again no problems!

I got another pair for my mum and dad as they had a new PC (Ethernet only) upstairs and their router ADSL was downstairs. Again set up a bridge with security. All fine even works with Skype at 720p video!

These units are great, the build quality seems very good, power supplies are stable no problems.

My dad uses his Tenda with an iPAD no problems and a Wireless Internet Radio and a IP phone no problems at all.

You need to work out if you are using it as

1) An Access Point
2) A bridge

If you want to use it as an AP think about if the Tenda should firewall the rest of the network from the wireless or no. If not do not use the WAN port and disable DHCP. If you mess up just reset the hardware (hold the little button down with a pen for 7 seconds) to factory reset.

There is new firmware on the Tenda site I upgraded all of mine.

Once set up you can back up the settings to a file.
#37
Cheers frownbreaker for the post - time for me to have another play with firmware/settings then
#38
This is a fantastic router, it's works perfect with my Virgin Media cable broadband modem, simply plug attach one end of an ethernet cable into the back and the other end into the back of the modem and you're away. Highly recommended, never had any problems, no cut outs and range is brilliant. I can pick the signal up from this router on my laptop from the bottom of my back garden which is quite long (20 meters). 10/10 for the router, 20/10 for the price!
