No idea but these were not a clearance item just a half price label.

Chelmsford branch. Had a lot of batteries on offer. When I bought them this evening they were rung up as £9.99 despite the shelf label clearly showing the half price label.
The cashier corrected the price as he could also clearly see the offer. He mentioned it may not be live until tomorrow.
However there were not stacks of them only about 4 packs on shelf, that said many batteries were buy one get one half price (not such good offer) & there were no more than 1 pack on shelf!

They also regularly update firmware. Regarding finding a router with more than 4 Ethernet ports. I would be surprised if there are any out there, but - it’s not an issue, just buy a giganet Ethernet switch (say TPLink or Netgear). You can buy managed or unmanaged ones, both are just Plug and play and extend the number of ports by say four or seven ports depending on what you get, they just work. Just connect them to the router and DHCP allocates the IP address as normal. Hope this helpsPatrick


That helps a lot. Didn't know there was a port extender haha - do they reduce the up/down speed at all?

In regards to the router itself, is there anything I need to look out for? Tech terms etc?

I am currently with Virgin (200mb) and have the latest HUB (So yes it can run in modem mode) - however I find streaming to be quite pants via Wifi especially HD/4K content so prefer to use Ethernet for most things (PC, Hive Hub, PS4, TV etc...). I would like a router which has great Wifi along with more than the 4 Ethernet ports (if possible?). I like to think I am tech savvy but I have no idea what to look for when it comes to routers. I have a budget of around £120 but under £100 would be perfect. Any help would be appreciated

Most units choose the "best" channel when they start up. If you look at the unused channels in all the locations you want to use change to a fixed channel might improve things. The coverage on 5gHz is poor Vs 2.4gHz also disable the USB3 on the unit just to see if this is causing problems. Assume you are testing with a local LAN based disk and a gigabit connection not a mains based extended?It's worth moving the unit to the middle floor as it radiates the signal in a sphere so having the unit on the ground floor is not ideal. Also most of your neighbours will likely have there APs by the front door where the BT line somes in, increasing the risk of interference. I have an old house and had similar issues. I moved my Asus unit (router only varient of this model) to the middle of the house, cabled with gigabit ethernet to a 24 port switch, and the BT VDSL modem on the ground floor - I patch the VDSL ethernet out direct to the ASUS which I moved to the second floor. coverage is fine after the move and channel change.One other benefit of this setup is I can switch from BT to PlusNet and back again to get cashback deal without changing any hardware., I just need to update the CHAPS auth setting on the Asus. I only use the ISP modems when there is a problem on the line and they want to use the ISP modem software to run checks.


Yep I am IT literate so I have done all the checks. I think the best option would be out in the hall and up high that way it only has to go through at most 1 solid wall. routing cabling to the second floor is doable ( but not in a way that would keep my wife happy) so I am probably going to go to maplin and try and get a longer power cord and mount it up high in the hallway.
But thanks for the advise.

Nice modem / router I have the router only version of this several years old. Still working well. ASUS are really good with frequent software updates - Impressed. Good value for the price.

If you only have the ISP provided modems (Virgin / Sky / BT etc) and you have a high speed connection with several devices on Wifi its worth looking at a quality AP like this, the performance is much better than the ISP offerings - more RAM, more powerful CPU, better heatsinks, antenna, PSU and the build quality inside the ASUS is spectacular.

The Virgin boxes and others are really poor and in some cases can effectively limit what bandwidth you can use. I switch my VBOX to modem mode and wired it to an AP and got much faster 20% throughput -This was 3 years ago so your mileage may vary.

I know this is a DSL unit but I'm sure the quality is similar to my router only varient.

The firmware was plagued with problems from day one with dropping connections and rebooting, I tried for just under a year with it and gave up in the end, did they ever fix it? Still surprised they haven't brought a new model out in all these years. I bought a Netgear modem router to replace the Asus and has been solid from day one.



Since I have had this box and although I have not had any problems, there have been quite a few firmware updates. Some of which have been to add new ISPs to make the change from one to another even easier.

I live in an vitorian terrace with signal on the second floor is very patchy, considering a mesh system now or something with triple bands due to the number of smart devices. The power cable isnt very long which meant that you cant mount it high as suggested.

It doesn't store music, but does have the option of controlling the music player on your phone.Battery life for me is around 5 days average which compared to an Apple Watch I had previously is absolutely the way it should be. Fitness tracking is always perfect, and through Garmin Connect it syncs with Strava etc. Mines has been through allsorts and I've never once worried about breaking the screen or anything like that.I am ready to give it to a friend, only because I am going to be going for the newer model from this otherwise I'd continue to wear it it daily.



Can i be your friend ? lol


Expecting a solid "NO"

The vivoactive 3 is the replacement for this and much better. Many reports of screens spontaneously cracking on these as well.

At this price you might be better getting the vivoactive 3, which looks like a nicer watch to wear all day for me. Its around the £230 mark at the moment, but as its newer should receive updates for longer too.

Garmin will be announcing their new products at CES2018 in Vegas either Sunday or Monday so best to see what happens there. New models will send prices down further. They did post on their site before Christmas before taking it down a new model which includes music storage. That is expected to be the announcement.

Was getting one but saw reviews on cracked screens so gone for the basic but hopefully just as effective forerunner 35

I got one of these for the wife a while back but at £130, plus wiggle currently selling it cheaper so cold for me.

The wife loves this watch though so I’d recommend it for anyone wanting a watch for activities, all day tracking and notifications/control of a smartphone. It doesnt store music though, no Garmin watches do, but then again I always recommend people don’t run with music as they will enjoy events/races more without it.

id also highly recommend the Fenix 3 (or the newer Fenix 5) but that’s a lot more money
