Great deal!! Hot!!



Morning:), it is supposed to be a very good "n" router, cnet give it good reviews

Could I use this with my Sky Broadband over BT phone broadband please?
We've got a crazy little Sky Box that doesn't deliver very well around the house and into the garden.... not that I'll be surfing outdoors today!!

Don`t you need to invest in a "N" adaptor too to take advantage of the extended range/speed?.

heat added!

I have this- it is very, very good. Extremely reliable. Highly recommended. Hope this helps people if they are deciding.

30 quid in my local argos clearance place... am still weighing it up, looks fine.

Yep.. and seeing as most laptops, blackberrys etc dont come with N then I don't see the point in buying one. Especially when it doesn't mention if you can use N, while also using B and G. Otherwise if your using G on one machine and N on another, it's just going to run the whole network on G.

Technically you could but usually people just buy a new modem router. All youd basically do is plug the cable that usually goes to the PC into this, but disable wireless on your current one and youd have to disable DHCP on one of the devices.

Maybe not the range but definately the speed.

No its not, they can be either dedicated to one type or mixed mode, same with the encryption ... but whats the point of using WPA when almost all devices can have a driver update for WPA2. The only time an N device would slow its speed down to that of a G is when directly communicationg with the G, even then it still wants to go as fast as it should but cant.

D-link make good routers and if its for running wireless stuff off of it then this is a decent deal.

If on the other hand you are like me then you would probably be thinking ahead and looking for a gigabit ethernet one. Wired this router maxes out at 100Mbps. wherears a gigabit one will give you 1000Mbps. Last year when I bought one thats what I went for with the draft n for wireless, regardless though this router will be able to wirelessly handle the new modem speed of 50Mbps and the 100Mbps that Virginmedia are testing, a wireless G router would fail to deliver with those. Also once VM have decided theyve tested 100 enough and release it, just like 50 this year, a 100Mbps router on a 100Mbps connection isnt exactly going to go well. In fact the wireless side of this is better than the wired.

If someone has one of these - how good are the QOS features? Really tempted to pick this up if I can prioritise gaming traffic or limit bandwidth per port etc. Any hlep greatly appreciated, especially screenies on the options!

never mind, doesnt include the modem and really need it all in one box!

I was about to buy when I realised the integrated switch isn't gigabit
