Found 29th Apr 2009Made hot 29th Apr 2009
Saw these tonight in the Weymouth store, proper printed £10 shelf edge label, so am assuming it's not just a local deal
From the box it looked just like the one Argos are selling here:

You can't turn off wireless function without going into the settings of your router, this is done by typing a special address on your browser, like 192.1681.1 then clicking on the wireless settings...:thumbsup:

and normal routers have the WPA protection which is ok but WPA2 is the best you can get currently...not sure what this one has...:roll:

Edit: what happened to the post above mine? I was replying to it! I think my browser Firefox 3.5 beta 4 might be playing up!

If this is the WMBR-G54 then it supports 64/128-bit WEP, MAC Address ACL, WPA. WPA is fine as it aids MAC's to connect to it.

Conformation of model number would be good though.

If anyone has any questions then I will answer them as my company does Enterprise Wi-Fi installations ;-)

Cannot argue with that! Don't need one but a a GREAT price!

so this is a ADSL router and no good with a cable modem ie with virginmedia

unfortunately not it is only ADSL, ADSL2 and ADSL2+ compliant.

ADSL only.

ADSL modem-routers usually seem to cost more than the Cable version

Red hot deal. No question.

Can anyone confirm this is available in any other branch? Last few Morrisons deals seem to be one store wonders... a few wasted trips.... so a bit cautious..

Hot if generally available (or you live in Weymouth!).

Anyone know if this can be used pureley as a wireless, er, whatsit (repeater?). By that I mean something I can plug in somewhere in range of my existing wireless router and extend the wireless range of my network?

Yeah i'd also like to know if it could be used as to connect my PC up to my existing wireless network - anyone?

anyone know if these are available in the swansea store?

These routers were in the Spalding/Pinchbeck store about 2 weeks ago for this price. I did buy one as it was a bargain, I thought it would be a good deal to post on hotukd, then I promptly forgot when I got home and this thread has now reminded me, the unit has been sitting in a drawer gathering dust, my parents are to be the proud new owners of this unit. Sorry I didn't post the deal, epic fail there on my part I wasn't being greedy either as I only bought the one unit and there was one left. Anyway I've posted this to illustrate this wasn't a local deal but stock is probably quite limited.

The model is WBMR-G54, there was also a Buffalo125Mb cable router there for £15 two weeks ago, dunno the model number of that one though.

Is this 100% ADSL2+ compatible? :?

Nothing at Morrisons Kettering Road branch Northampton.

I don't think it can. It does have a bridged mode though so you could run an ethernet cable from one router to the other and they would both form the same network but have 2 different access point names.

Sweet! Finally an excuse to get rid of the horrible over-simple (and restrictive) O2 ADSL2+ box...
Finally I'll be able to configure my network the way I want... not the way O2 wants!

Just got to find one now... :prop:

Well, don't throw the O2 router out, because O2 will want it back if you ever leave them.

Anyway, I thought O2's router had its advanced configuration options accessable through telnet.

Bargain, but none in Darlington

They can ****** off... contract states that the router is provided free of charge and says nothing about it remaining their property... thus it's mine to burn! :whistling:
I suppose I could flash it with it's original firmware...

There are some advanced config options... just not advanced enough for me to setup the network the way I want... Which a third party router would suit.

None at Swadlincote..... FAIL!

I had to send my O2 wireless adsl+ router back after the 12 month period. It did the job though.

Read Section 3, point 6 under "O2 Home Broadband Standard terms & conditions for customers"...

Upon termination of your contract, you must return the Equipment in the … Upon termination of your contract, you must return the Equipment in the prepaid returns envelope provided to you and take it to the post office. We must receive the Equipment within 30 days of the termination date. If we do not receive the Equipment within that timeframe your payment card will be charged or your bank account will be debited a fee of £50. If you keep any Equipment after we stop providing Services, it is supplied to you 'as is', without warranty and we are not able to support it.



I'm pretty sure it used to be £100, but it seems like they've reduced it to £50 now. Still, point stands, you've got to return the router supplied by O2 once you terminate your contract or cough up.

If you login to the O2 router with the following, then you will have much more advanced settings :

ID: SuperUser (the ID is CASE SENSITIVE, ie with S and U in capitals)
Password: O2Br0ad64nd (ie with digits 2064, the first O & B being capital letters)

None in Hamilton or the Gargow Fort grr

Thanks for the post...bargain...heat added...:thumbsup:

Great deal ...... has anyone found them available anywhere else ?

Managed to find these and 2 or 3 other Buffalo Modems and Routers including the high speed ADSL 2+ 125 mb ones all at £10 (no draft n ones though). Only available in some of the larger stores with a Techo Bar/Dedicated Audio counter which was just one single store in the Birmingham/West Mildands area.
