For those on 50Mb BB.....the Netgear WGR614 is not compatible and drops your BB to about 32Mb..........so i would expect this may do the same !!!

I wouldn't.

Nor would I, care to explain the link between this product and the WGR614? And don't say they're both made by Netgear.

One is a network switch/hub and the other is a wireless router.

I wouldn't.



I did say 'MAY' do the same ....as i can't confirm.....as most Netgear models are generic the WGR614 may have the same network hub in it .....and i know 100% it's not compatible with 50Mb !!

That's no doubt because it's a G router so therefore too slow for a 50mb connection full stop. Bet it works at full speed if you turn the wireless off and use it wired though. Fwiw the N routers aren't that hot either, Ok for BB but complete ***** for file copying.

No .........the WGR614 is not compatible full stop ....even wired .... Virgin supply a new Netgear WNR2000 Router with every 50mb installation.......but i've heard they're even having problems with those now and are supplying Belkin Routers instead....

I've got a WNR2000 and get around 80Mb/s over wireless and and more over wired. I see no problem with 50Mb/s using one of these devices.

Will this work in conjunction with a Belkin Powerline network adapter (85Mbps) as seen earlier on HUKD, so that I can connect multiple ethernet devices at a different location to the main modem/router?

Yes it would

i bought this for £12.99 at pcworld last year so far no problems.

It arrived last week and worked straight away!

I had a long 90 foot ethernet cable laid in my house from downstairs, connected to the router then had the other end of the cable connected to this Ethernet switch upstairs.

I have three ethernet cables hooked up to the switch with two computers on each end and an X-box 360.

works amazingly!

Just gone up to £18.38. Was at the lower price until earlier today.
