Ok I bought this router recently to upgrade my home wireless from G to N-300. I was on a pretty tight budget so ended up with this one from Ebuyer. I had low expectations due to the price and never having heard of the company but it is a really nice piece of kit.

Signal strength is excellent. I only have 150mbps adaptors in the laptops at the moment as I'm still waiting on the 300mbps cards to arrive. Up in the bedrooms I get about a 140mbps connection which is a huge improvement over my old d-link wireless router.

Useful info I can think of (good and bad!):

* Initial set up is done in a few mouse-clicks through a wizard.

* It seems to be well supported by the manufacturer. There are a few new firmware updates available from the website.

* It says it is for cable broadband but this isn't necessarily the case. If your home broadband is delivered to you by a standard RJ45 network cable then this will work.

* There is a wealth of options on the config page which are all well documented on screen.

* It is a Chinese company so the documentation isn't in fluent English. Despite this it is all still easily understandable

* It seems to block all but the most common ports by default (which is a good thing imo). It did block my smtp and pop ports which prevented mail being delivered or sent from Outlook until I unblocked it. Obviously if you use web based email (hotmail, gmail etc) this won't affect you.

In short it is a decent bit of kit that does the job on a budget!

Thanks for your post :) I've added a price and a retailer name to your title, we always try to include these when posting deals.

Just to elaborate on the "cable broadband only" suggestion. The blue port is what your broadband plugs into. If it is a standard network cable and fits in there it will work.

And thanks millarcat, I'll remember that in future :)

How do you know you're getting 140 Mbps? Seriously. Your broadband connection isn't that quick and all the Ethernet connections are 100Mbps max. Is this wireless to wireless speed? What happens if you have two 300Mbps wireless connections, do they prevent each other from reaching 300Mbps?

On the other hand it is a good price so heat added.

It is connected to the internal wireless network at 140mbps. The wireless connection utility tells me what the connection speed is, I presume it is fairly accurate as it changes as I walk around with it. Right next to the router it is 150, upstairs it is 135-140, out the back it goes as low as 120. A wireless to wireless file copy transferred at about 16M/s (using the Windows 7 transfer rate as the measurement). Whatever way you cut it thats more than 100Mbps ethernet :)

I don't have 300Mbps wireless cards to test, they are in the process of being delivered. I am also concerned that mixed mode might nobble the speed of the whole thing but right now I can't say one way or the other.

My broadband is 20Mbps and downloads at full speed everywhere, ie about 2.2M/s. With my old D-Link G router the download speed was as low as 700K/s on the same broadband connection.

The wired ports are only 10/100 so wireless to wired transfers are bottlenecked there. However it is still an upgrade from my old wireless-g which was limited to (a theoretical) 54Mbps. For my needs and for the price it is works perfectly well. :thumbsup:

140mbps, the rate of file transfer throughout your network, NOT INTERNET! An ethernet cable is only capable of 100mbps, and do you know how FAST 140 is for a HOME network!
