Hotness!

Had one of these for a day until i took it back it was rubbish!
Save your money and get something else.

A quick search for reviews (as I was initially tempted) shows it's a bit poo

smallnetbuilder.com/con…96/

Good price for simple requirements (ie parents homes) though so will still add heat.

no DSL port, so landline user can't use it directly

Dont buy it.
1) doesnt work with dd-wrt (custom firmware)
2) worse than 160n that was on ebuyer a month ago for tha same price - 10 pound refund from cisco.

A draft N router with fast Ethernet is like sucking a burger through a straw. Pointless at best.

If you can show me convincing transfer rate tests that show draft N is faster than 100mbit ethernet, I'll suck that burger patty through a straw. Look at my comments in the ebuyer 160N thread.

There's a review here smallnetbuilder.com/wir…wed showing a max throughput of under 70mbit, and that's using 40MHz wide channels, which aren't very practical in most built up areas with multiple other wireless networks around.

in particular, I'd suggest anyone considering this router reads the closing thoughts page of the review at the above link.

It's a nice price for a router/usb adaptor combo, but don't kid yourself this is a cheap way of getting full mythical 802.11n performance

I got the bigger brother the 160 and I must admit I am dissapointed in its wireless range. I have stuck dd-wrt firmware on it and increased the power to the antennas to try and solve this. It has helped but the other day I had to restart it as the router was sending out 2kb/s to my netbook downstairs when I normally get 2.5mb/s.... So quite buggy hardware and software..... [original 160 firmware meant to be really unstable so I installed dd-wrt].

DONT DO IT!!!!!!

the wireless on it is pants. I brought this because my previous Linksys died thinking it would be just as good. I have my touch next to it and it registered as 1 bar and keeps dropping the connection

ATM i'm using it as a router until the cheapo router from ebuyer turns up.

then I'm lauching it as high as it'll go

No problem here with my 160 running original firmware. Don't believe everything you read on the internet about the original firmware, as these things are very ISP/area specific. Sounds to me like you have congested airwaves, with your Auto channel selection switched on - now that functionality is pants!

LMAO!

So are you implying that draft N is faster than 100Mb in some way?? and therefore somehow its going to slow things down? Before saying things like that I'd check that all your devices you're connecting up to the Ethernet ports on your router even support anything faster than 100Mb.

OMG some of the posts on here make me cringe!

OK this weekend I will go back to the latest Linksys firmware after putting the power back to 71 [just incase that makes a difference] and will see how that goes. There are only 2 other wifi connections that I can see near me, most of the neighbours are pretty old and am sure not into technology.

Bought this in the deal that was posted a few weeks ago.
I went against my gut feeling of 'listening to amazon reviews' and decided to buy it. What a terrible decision.

Kept dropping out, speeds were poor, etc. The signal strength on my ps3 dropped from 65% ( on my 5 year old neatgear router) to 35%..and then to no signal!! I have since returned the router to ebuyer and am using the old neatgear one until I find a good price on a better brand.

Amann did you try those Tenda ones for £11.99 each?

Yes

...and running Fast Ethernet along side it, makes it a little less worthwhile - yes.

I'm assuming that because he came out with such a 'cringeworthy' post, that he probably runs Gigabit. It's not exactly unheard of.

do you have any evidence for draft N being faster than 100mb?

it does say for cable in title post. try reading :roll: honestly is it beyond people to click on the go to deal button to find out more info.

i've got the 160n and it's been good for me for a while now.

what amazon reviews?
amazon.co.uk/pro…8-9 They seem to be good!

I bought this few days ago for an uncle. Will see how good it is when set up!

I am intrigued, what is a better brand than Cisco?

cisco ne linksys for the domestic products. I've heard discussion that in the domestic range, Netgear is slightly more reliable.
