These aren't the ones that had problems overheating are they? If they aren't, this is very cheap!

Hmm, I got one before xmas for 7 quid and have had it on 24/7 since. Cool as a cucumber.
The f5d7230 are the ones to steer clear from - they drop signal and overheat!

are these any good for the chipped virgin cable?

Phone Virgin and ask them, i'm sure they will be happy to advise you ! (_;)

KAISER, Does it say for cable or adsl?

# 4 x RJ-45 10/100Base-TX Network Auto-negotiating LAN
# 1 x RJ-11 ADSL Network WAN

RJ11 is the phone jack socket.

In other words it for the BT phone line ones, not the cable broadband

And I agree, stay away from Belkin but tbh you cannot argue at this price

You can. It's a good deal, but regardless of price it should meet basic standards. If it doesn't work as advertised, drops signal and overheats you can definitely argue, regardless of price - it still has to work.

Yes work fine i have my four boxes feeding off this, Just off now got some whiskey distilling in the shed

Good for the price, so heat to be had.:) I would say by now that wireless G is getting a little old to invest in.....

I wasn't questioning the product. I was merely stating that if a product is not working properly, you are perfectly entitled to argue and complain. The price of it is irrelevant - it still must function as stated and to normal expectations.

It's actually not. Everyone is obsessed with Wifi N and so on thesedays, and go mad if their machines don't accept it. Yet the majority of broadband equipped homes in the UK receive under 20mb speeds, with a huge number on <10mb. Therefore G, and even B wifi are actually still perfectly capable and adequate for most people.

this good for TalkTalk and PS3?

Got one of these a couple of weeks ago, trying to cure random drop-offs with my Philips Streamium stereo (which has now gone off to be repaired). It was replacing a o2 modem.

Got to say, seems good at the moment. Not as good range as the o2, but I guess thats because it doesn't have an external ariel. Easy to configure, and has a heap of options if you want to delve into its config.

Not running hot at all, just mildly warm to the touch. Well worth the sub £10 I payed for it. Even if I just use it as a spare.

Yeah bought one of these a few weeks ago, would only allow one wireless connection to be stable all others dropped ... a frustrating waste of time play refunded me no questions asked

Got a Belkin for my family in law, and has worked perfectly fine - no drop outs ever. I'm a Netgear fan myself, but my Netgear D834GT dropped out far more than the Belkin has!

got one a month or two back when posted before.
It is on 24/7, and is fine. No problem with dropouts with 3 devices connected.
No overheating issues either.

Anyone know if this can be put in bridge mode and just connect to existing WLAN?

Expired now - £35.69 now..

The model name on the underside of the ADSL router is F5D7634-4A-H V2 for anyone interested.

When I searched Belkin UK site I could only find this section:
Support - Routers - G - F5D7634uk4A-H - v1000

Not sure what improvements the V2 has over v1000 (assuming verbose name for V1).

Edit:
I've been given this router as it kept dropping ADSL connection and was unable to reconnect. So I swapped it with my Netgear DG834GT that hasn't suffered any lose of ADSL since.

The Belkin came with the latest firmware "2.00.20 (Oct 5 2009 17:14:37)" already. And if you need to update the firmware yourself you can find it listed under the F5D7634-4A model.
