Does anyone know if you can replace a Sky wireless router with this unit? Seems like a good price for Wireless N.

It it's a standard BT line then... YES.

Is this a deal? These things at N150 seem to be cheap everywhere... N300 and N600 pricey?

Standard issue for orange broadband and i think its shocking router!

You need the router username & password to change to a non sky router & it's against sky's t&c's
So they won't give you it
Try searching on skyuser forum for details how to get the details

Not worth it in my opinion go for a 300 modem instead if yo want perfomance

Needed to replace my old Tiscali router thanks!
Can't be worse than the Thomson devices
The 300 are still around twice the price

No, this will not work because this is a combined ADSL Modem and router and hence the input is direct from the telephone line and not a from modem with an ethernet output, like with virgin. Try amazon.co.uk/Bel…WW/

Thanks for the link. I might wait again. I missed the Buffalo router for £5 on here a few months ago.

Sick to death of my dongle. Couldnt get connected for ages earlier so resorted to my ethernet cable.

Just a headsup that these routers are pretty nasty and most people have problems getting them working with o2.

I converted to N because I couldn't get a good signal from one end of my house to the other. If you need signal strength, I would go for this or a cheaper deal like the one posted by Dinger42.

If you're feeling a little brave buy a used BT HomeHub 2.0 A from eBay and unlock it (www.psidoc.com).

If you're after performance too (faster home network) go for a 300 Mbps N router.

I need a good N adapter, could any home networking folk recommend one please?

Happy 2011!

Had a few Belkin products over the years --- they're always not quite good enough and give lots of problems. I steer clear of them now, but £25 seems a fair price ---- although it will probably give you £75 worth of headaches trying to get it to work the way you want

will this work with a talktalk router??

I'm sick and tired with my belkin router wireless G router. Can someone recommend a good router for a virgin line . Budget approx £40.

thanks.

Belkin (shudder). Only routers I've ever had trouble with. Had two friends buy them and it took hours to get them working. Any other brand router I've had up and running in ten mins.
Edited by: "ilaskey" 4th Jan 2011

what's an alternative to this belkin? I need an ADSL2+ compatible modem/router. Currently with o2.

Also in the past I've had belkin, actually worked pretty well (that was a router no modem).

BELKIN are ****!
use a netgear dgn2000

The netgear ones can be just as bad, the dgn1000 has the worst wireless I have ever used, on Wired it is alright, but wireless it just conks out whenever it feels like it. Then and again the old netgear model works fine...

anyone know what the standard virgin media netgear router is and if this will better it ? or what do you recommend to get to better it ? Thanks

N type routers in my opinion are pointless unless you are doing a lot of file sharing in the home. The dont increase your broadband speed as some people seem to think. They of course increase your range if you have N capability already. So unless yours is broken stick with the G type modem. Or buy a G type for £9.99 delivered :-)

Zameen

This is an ADSL modem, not a cable /DSL router

you need one of these....only if you need N type speed...see my previous post

I use SKY.
NOT !
sky is to slow

I'm after a wireless n router to replace my netgear as the signal is wake. Can someone point to a good 300n router under £50 if available please?

It would work fine, the ADSL modem feature would just be redundant.

Again incorrect, you simply plug in this unit into your cable box and it will work fine, you will still need to plug it into your computer first with an ethernet cable and set up the wifi as shown in the instructions. The ADSL modem feature is just redundant in this case.

Thats some connection you got there. Wow

Whilst I appreciate there's only 2 reviews for this on Amazon, it's got a 4+5 star rating, doesn't sound as bad as you're making it.

Got mine today, setup in 20min and all 6 devices working, no issues (OK, it's only been about 12 hours but still)
I've had bad experiences with Belkin, Netgear, and Linksys networking equipment in past so I don't think any one company produces much better equipment, for £25 I think it's a bargain

What you are suggesting will only work if you have one PC, as it needs to get its IP address from somewhere, and in this case it would have to come from the Virgin Box, and they only give you one IP address. But if you want to spend money and then spend 3 days trying to make it work..go ahead. If it were that easy you would think the manufacturers would only sell one type
