There is exactly the same model sold but without the wireless usb adapter and more expensive:

Note that the USB ADAPTER IS NOT THE ONE IN THE PICTURE BUT A SMALLER ONE as shown in the following link:

this is scorching hot... buffalo routers r the best. Usually are £60+ in other places ... over £100 in pc world lol

Seems to be a fantastic deal, i've been in the market for a new ADSL modem router for a while now for O2 BB, they always seem to be cable that pop up on here.

The wireless adaptor is £23.99 alone on ]play.com! Looks to be a nice small one aswell and the one displayed on amazon seems to be wrong.

H+R left, thanks.

Spot on ideal for my Virgin ADSL H&R.

thanks op, seems a good deal
one ordered

nice!, thanks

Bought the Buffalo WBMR-G54 for a tenner from this site/Ebuyer-Ebay Deal of the Day a week or so ago and I'm using it now.

Consistently gets a clear 200KBs less than my old wired Zyxel 660 router, which gets a clear and consistent 1900+ KBps download speed (the wireless Zyxel version of the same router is worse than the Buffalo).

Will this work on a BT line or does it need Cable?

I was wondering the same, however does say ADSL 2+ in specs so should work with BT.

For O2 (LLU) Users this is a Great Deal! :thumbsup: Reviews on both Amazon and Ebuyer (for the same model excluding USB adapter) see people experiencing reduced attenuation on ADSL+ with this router. It will most probably be using the Broadcom chipset too (Buffalo usually do) which is the same supplier of O2/Be exchange end kit.

Best link to illustrate this is here (google cache) ...Last Buffalo ADSL 2+ G router that I had used a Broadcom chipset/modem too

why no mention of N in specs?

I aint too clued up on routers. I am with BE and using their supplied router connected to a gigabit switch. I have had a couple of their routers but when using the wireless it would cut out a few times.The router is only max 8 mts and one wall away from where i have to use wireless.When i use my next door neighbours open wireless connection i get a constant connection.

Would this be a worthy upgrade for me ? I am fed up too with having to reset BE's router too. I have no disrespect for BE as their service has been second to none but their routers are pretty s..t.

Thanks

will it work on o2???

How complicated! What is 'N Technology'? is it an N or a G router.

I have Mac's and windows boxes along with Nas, ps3 xbox wii and various other connected devices.

This looks good but the ambiguity is putting me off.

No this is ADSL2, and is for standard BT/TalkTalk/SKY/Orange etc.

She needs a cable modem/router

They wont allow you to use it but i have used a 3com office connect (much more reliable than the sky netgear) for around 3 years. i simply hacked the sky router following instructions from the web and added the user name and password. Have a go!!

I am currently using Pipex, which was previously Bulldog.

Improved connection speed for mine by at least 400kbps. This morning connection shows an increase of 600kbps. Stable internet and wireless connection so far. Shame that I have to pay £7 more for it only a few days ago. But still, very satisfied......

Good deal but shame it hasn't got 'Gigabit Ethernet'. Anyone any suggestions on a ADSL N router that has gigabit lan?

Cheers

Is there ever going to be one with gigabit LAN at a reasonable price??

How complicated! What is 'N Technology'? is it an N or a G router.



Some routers use MIMO tech, I've only seen it in Netgear's Rangemax series and some Buffalo routers.
It more or less doubles the traffic of wireless G, but has multiple antennae that do some fancy frequency shizzle that minimise dead spots, meaning that it has greatly increased network range. Seriously, compared to ordinary B/G networking, it's a night and day difference.

Warning: As far as I know, because this is a unique combination of tech, you'll need similar 'buffalo highpower' to get the best out of the range and speed. At least you did when I had my Rangemax model. That said, you still get increased performance from regular G radios as well, if not as much as when using the included dongle.

Same here.



It is a G router but with higher wireless connection speed. Normal G router speed is 54mbps. By using dual channel and increase the wireless bandwidth, the router increase the connection speed to 150mbps.

I'm also with be and had the same problem, I phoned them up and they altered the stability of my connection and it seems to have fixed the problem!!

Can someone who has this router tell me if the mains is 110V / 220V, 50 / 60hz?

According to the box specifications, AC 100-240V, 50/60 Hz

Great that means I can travel with it to NA.

Now I only have to check the manual to see if this router does reasonable bandwidth shaping. I'm tired of the kids drawing down my 2MBs of bandwidth watching vids on Youtube on my Zyxel router.

grrr

It looks like the QoS (Quality of Service) is very limited on this model...

"Quality of Service (QoS) assigns priority levels to different kinds of packets to minimize delays in the transfer of data. The table lists four common applications and lets you enter the port numbers for up to four more. Click the High Priority button for the application(s) whose packets you wish to receive preferential treatment."

So only by application and not by IP address.
