Wow, well Ive voted this hot, comes to Total £58.29 delivered.
Its £82 on Ebuyer!

Never really had much luck with Netgear products but nevertheless this is a good price for this particular model.
#2
I agree. This is a great deal. These are more expensive than this in the States!

Hot

However, bear in mind that "n" is still a draught specification and will be approved later this year, meaning that the router firmware will need to be patched to upgrade to the approved spec.

Always had Netgear stuff, and had no problems at all...
#4
Anyone know if this works with the 10 Pounds off voucher GSK6844780 ? see previous Expansys deal here ...:thumbsup:
#5
I have this Router and couldn't get it to work with BeUnlimited, tried for hours to set it up.
#6
I'd never touch netgear with a barge pole.
#7
I'd never touch anything OTHER than a netgear.
I have this router - paid much more than this for it. Its absolutely fab! Very easy to set up. I can access my entire system from else where on the internet using this router. I can ftp in through it, remote desktop in through it, and even run a webserver through it.

Buy it - you will love it.
#8
Cheers, gone for this, always used Netgear and never had any issues.
#9
Waste deal. The same router plus a USB wireless adapter is only £60 in PC world. Adapter itself would be worth £15.
#10
This does not have a Gigabit ethernet switch, it is only 10/100 speed so the wireless speed on this is quicker than the wired speed. :giggle:

The wireless speed is theoretically 270Mbps but in practice it will be 130Mbps but still quicker than the wired speed of upto 100Mbps.

If you want Gigabit speeds then a Gigabit switch will have to be purchased. It is a shame that Netgear decided not to put gigabit switching into this device. :-(
Although obviously the price point would be higher.

If you go down buying a Gigabit Switch route make sure to get a Gigabit switch that is backwards compatible with 10/100 and has all ports that support 1000Mbps rather than just two which many of them seem to. You will need Cat5e or Cat6 cabling too. Cat6 is a bit thicker but suffers from less interference than Cat5e.

All the computers that you want to be capable of Gigabit speeds on your network should have a Gigabit ethernet card/adapter.
#11
For me Netgear are the best too, never had a problem and always 100% reliable.

I tried using the discount code and nothing was instantly reduced, but you do have to put in the How Did You Hear About Us section... Will let you know once it arrives if the £10 off worked.

It is not. It is £88 as the 'web exclusive price at PCWorld'. Got by entering 'dg834n' into the pcworld search box.

From looking at the Bethere unofficial forums (http://www.dontbethere.co.uk/forum/default.aspx), this modem router seems one of the few that seems to work well with their service. And for many seems to be more stable than the bebox modem.

Now does anyone know of a good place to get a reasonably priced pcmcia wireless N-standard laptop card?

Don't think so mate. Listed on website as £88 web price or £119.99 instore???!! :roll:

Have to say I went through 6 of these routers in the space of 15 months. They kept on dying on me. In the end got fed up and bought a cheapo Talk Talk one from Ebuyer that has been going strong since Feb.

I read around and seems I wasnt alone. Netgear support is shocking, usually takes a 40 min call before they agree to replace.

Saying that I still think this is a hot deal if the code works.

Must be a recent deal? Last time I went in there they were £90 odd. Sure its this model?

0% reliable in my case for this model :P Although I use the GT model at my dads which is reliable.
#15
excellent deal, I have been looking for a new router my speedtouch has been giving me severe issues! thanks OP voted hot
#16
dddddddddddoh! I ordered one of these from Ebuyer just a few days ago for £89.99! The Ebuyer one however does come bundled with the "Netgear WN121T RangeMax Next Wireless-N USB 2.0 Adaptor" for free, Expansys have that adapter at £44.95 so I don't think I've done too badly with the Ebuyer deal.

*EDIT*
If anybody is looking for the combo of Router and USB Adapter, this is the Ebuyer link: http://www.ebuyer.com/UK/product/130340
They have the two for £89.99, just in case somebody else finds it useful.

Yes I've gone through all the forum threads but still couldn't get it to work. The Bemodem is ok luckily.

130mbit? You must be kidding. More like 30mbit

"For real world performance a 691MB video file was copied from the laptop over a close range open link to the PC in 97 seconds for an average speed of 56Mbit/sec and with WPA2 in action this only dropped down to 53Mbit/sec. Moving the laptop to the floor below and placing two brick walls in the way slowed Netgear down but not by as much as the competition with an open link delivering a more impressive 41Mbit/sec."

In other words, standing RIGHT next to the router (close enough to use a LAN cable), you will get 50mbit with WPA enabled (which is compulsory unless you live 100 miles from anyone else), and for realistic conditions, 40mbit max.

Not bad compared to some routers, and enough for DVD streaming (9,800) but not that quick.
#20
This is a excellent router with or without the bundled laptop card. Once you get the "sweet spot" channel as with other routers it should be solid as a rock. I used the N bundled card for a while but found I was getting high speeds anyway with my centrino chipset so flogged it on ebay.
I paid £98 just under a year ago - and the price has not fluctuated much for a long time so this is a great price.
This works great with the BE 24mb service incidently - while you cant (?) change the SNR ratio - I still get better speeds than my tweaked bebox (which overheats at the slightest mention of a torrent lol).
#21
I buy nothing but Netgear products and I regret it everytime! lol Damn offers, when will I ever learn! Their modem routers are not bad on the whole but can stop working with very heavy traffic. Don't think they're a big fan of heavy p2p usage. Netgear's usb adaptors have been completely pants in my experience. They over heat badly and stop working completely quite often. Found myself having to unplug and replug them every 15mins or so to get em working during periods of heavy use.

SNAP! Had the same problem with usb thingy overheating and having to unplug the thing. Dont use it anymore thankfully.

Saying how much I hate these Routers, Ive ordered one as a spare.

Literally every one just died on me, would power on for 2 seconds and then just cut out. Usually occurred after a reboot which I would only do if connection dropped. I read somewhere it was caused by built in wireless adapter burning out but never opened one up to check so cant confirm.

Saying that when this worked it was great. Features are second to none.

where do you enter any promotional codes ?

Enter GSK6844780 in the "How did you hear about us field" on checkout.

I had one of these from Amazon lasted a whole day absolute ****. I now use a Buffalo £40 router from Ebuyer and its been fantastic!!.
#28
Great value, already use Netgear equipment and never any problems so far.

Managed to place order for just £48.95 with no postage as I can collect with living only a few miles away - fantastic value.
#29

never had to reboot mine :-) Been up for almost 15 days now, and that's only cos i turned it off when i was on holiday a couple of weeks back! I've personally found them to be exceptionally reliable.

I don't really use the switch function of it - I uplink from here to a gigabit switch, so the only traffic that flows through the router is internet traffic - oh, and print jobs - so perhaps I dont give it the option to over heat. - Having said that, I do use it as a wireless access point for 3 laptops - but then they're not heavy traffic users.

Hope that those of you going for this deal have the say experience I've had.
