You dont, it says connect it to your CABLE modem!

Yep, good price for the cable version mamboboy...But this is, as you say, the ADSL Router modem model. I have rarely seen any ADSL Modem router using the 802.11n draft 2.0 at this price...

You can the cable version if you have a cable modem (like Virgin cable) but if you want to use it on something like BT, TalkTalk, O2, etc, you either need the version with a built in ADSL modem (like the one on this thread is for) or you need a separate ADSL modem.

Just to repeat, this thread is for the ADSL version. You want this if you get your broadband over the phone line.

Personally, I'd go for an all-in-one because it cuts down on the number of networking layers between you and the internet. Less latency == nicer experience.

This router will connect to a virgin cable modem or the like

Let's be clear. The version offered here is the ADSL modem version, NOT the cable version which can be had cheaper.

ADSL Protocol Supported - PPPoE (PPP over Ethernet), PPPoA (PPP over ATM), Dynamic/Fixed IP (1483 Bridge), Static IP (IPoA)
Ports - ADSL Port: 1 x RJ11, LAN port: 4 x RJ45, Power: 1 x DC input jack, Reset: 1 x reset button

And a penny cheaper on Ebay. Punch F5D8633UK4A into Google.

I was talking in the context of the one he brought up (ie the cable one).

Thanks, I edited the top of the post...Hopefully people will read it. :whistling:

It doesnt support the Ethoa protocol does it? (can anyone correct me?)

So that means it won't work with o2 or bebroadband, will it? Or is there a hack for this?

It will work with o2 and bebroadband:

Ports - ADSL Port: 1 x RJ11, LAN port: 4 x RJ45, Power: 1 x DC input jack, Reset: 1 x reset button

RJ11 for your phone line, RJ45 your ethernet ports to your devices, and wireless...BUT, please note the cheaper price on Play.com in the description.

How will it work; just because it is adsl it does not mean that it supports ethoa!

According to ]Overclockers, it supports ASDL2+ which must mean it supports O2/Bethere BB.

I'm on be broadband and so did a little digging around about this modem...There does seem to be lots of posts there and on the internet about this being dodgy on bethere and o2 (same network). Some people have had it working but report dropped speeds.

So, while some people have it working, recommendation is if you are on Bethere or O2, you should NOT buy...

Thanks for pointing this out.:thinking:

I believe Bethere uses IPOA which according to the spec listed on play, this does support.

Regardless, this seems to be relatively cheap because it's not that great of a router (reviews in general mentions unreliability and infrequent firmware updates). I think I'll hold off for a Netgear.

I was given a DG834N V1 by netgear, but couldn't recommend that model due to reliability issues.

I think if I was buying a wireless router today, I'd be looking for a dual band one, because there are now so many 2.4ghz routers around here, since they're commonly given away by all the major ISPs, whereas I'd probably have the 5ghz channels all to myself.

Broadcom chipset routers/modems do best on Be/o2 matches the Dslam dunno whats in 8633 appears to not be Broadcom if speed/sync issues maybe TX inst or atheros . Very

Good price but i'd rather stay away from Belkin. I bought a similar router (it was g+ version). I'm used it on O2 BB so it does work on O2 but the connection keep dropping.

I called tech support, and they suggested me to switch the channel from 'auto' to something else. Then I complain about the speed and the tech guy suggested me to disable the encription and firewall on the router. That sounded funny to me, why'd anyone like to do that?

Now, I get stable wireless connection from my router to computers (speed is not great though) but the modem keep dropping the connection to the internet. It's really a pain in the neck.

(My wireless router from O2, think its thompson, works a treat)
