No, this is not a modem, it's a router, so you need a modem (cable or ADSL) to plug into it with an ethernet cable.

Ditto:thumbsup:

I have the older white version of this, and for this price, this is going to get hot!!!

This thread I laughed much.

ha.

Love netgear, looking to upgrade to N but also 5GHz, no 5Ghz right? (dual band)

I've got a wireless-g bridge attached to a switch in the living room which is connected to x-box etc. Any recommendations on a bridge to replace it with to make the most out of this router, have trouble streaming hd stuff at the moment.

Just a word of warning I have the previous model n from netgear and it can sometime be temperamental with my PS3. I very often get signed out or can't even sign into psn due to dns problems, once I turn the console off then back on and it works. I have my ps3 connected via ethernet as i was hoping to stop this issue but sadly it happens with both wireless and wired connection. On the flip side i have never had any issues with my p.c, laptop or iphone just the ps3. I googled the problem and found that it is common.

if you are streming media in your home this is also excellent as can stream HD sources.

Hope this helps someone.

Heat added for the price

Why buy a router without a modem built-in? It means you'll have two boxes when one could suffice...therefore this deal seems expensive for what it is. OK it's new 802.11n spec but you could get a wireless a/b/g modem/router combo for less than the cost of this :?

If you have virgin media is the only reason really. If you have ADSL then it would be better to get an ADSL router.

They don't do a combined cable modem & router is the reason why. :whistling:

Although I wish they did, cause I agree having two boxes is very annoying.

Agreed, cable internet needs both modem and router seperate.

Got this free with my 50meg BB from Virgin.

They don't seem to do integrated cable routers.

Then again I hardly see any separate ethernet ADSL modems (only a few USB) in this country... I've got the routers from cable which I'd gladly reuse if they existed! Reflashed an old router to turn it into a wireless bridge though, waste not want not (and pay not for a 360 wireless adapter).

Netgear DGN2000 (wireless N router with ADSL modem) is £59.99 at PC World. Not cheap but if you want the modem and router in one device this would be better.

I have the internet with my sky tv package, along with the free wireless g router. would this replace that router to speed my connection up to my wireless n laptop? or would i have to have the wireless n router plugged into the wireless g one i already have?

This is useless to everyone on ADSL (i.e. every broadband except mobile and cable) unless they already have a modem with ethernet connection.

And I guess your wireless G router from sky could be configured to have wireless turned off and just plug it straight into the wireless N router! Yes that should work, and faster wireless. Won't give you faster internet though, G can already handle the full speed of a sky ADSL connection, just faster connection round the house (eg streaming HD movies to your games console).

cheaper alternative: ]http//ww…e=2

Gaaaaaah... why do these not have gigabit internet?! What is the point in the wired being slower than the wireless?!?!

thanks for the info aahhaa

Well nearly all the ADSL equivalents have a router combined with the modem. So I wonder why they can't produce a cable router/modem combination :?. Seems kinda odd, but interesting to know! Thanks

Which dept did you talk to - customer services, technical....Also, can i get it for that price if i'm on medium size BB (10Mb M).

Edit: Just seen Gumpy Joe post above, so for me it sounds like it's probably cheaper to buy Argos deal.

What is the model number for this router?

Also

Has it an integrated ADSL2+ modem?

can i return this to argos..if it keeps dropping connection, as i have yet to find a wireless router that stays connected all the time..lol

It's not a big problem not having gigabit wired networking. I've yet to see 802.11N with encryption enabled get 100mbit speeds in a useable fashion.

bought one of these from pc world a month back for £49 runs great hasnt dropped out once running ds lites psp xbox 360 and pc
