Excellent price for this Netgear adsl 2+ 150N router, including a usb wireless adaptor.

Was £59.99, now £39.00. Also at Currys and Dixons online. Oddly the version without the USB Adaptor is more expensive!

I have got it through Orange network for my b/band but seems to me the signal strenth is so slow and weak unless I am not doing something right any mastermind please tell me why the signal strenth is so low I am only getting 2 bars on the wireless .I got 20mb
Thanks

Tam-mo u r doing nothing wrong...they r rubbish!!im using a basic netgear router dg834g which is brilliant

I'm looking for a wireless router myself & i looked into getting this one, but the reviews on amazon ect say that this router is not ideal for the o2/be network (lack of a broadcom chipset). I'm not knocking the deal, just giving people on o2/be a heads up, its a ok price for a high street store,voted hot.

ADSL2+ version has been this price for months and is not a good deal at all in my opinion, very outdated router.

I bought it yesterday and I'm on o2 LLU. No problems so far and syncs only slightly slower than the dg834g it replaces. No dropped connections in 24 hours

You will have to keep us updated on this. if it drops in price i might go for this, i did'nt want to take the risk on this as my o2 box is very stable but uses wireless g, its the n lite i'm after, as reser said it has been this price for a good while now.

Will do sil0.

Obviously this router isn't as fully featured as some Netgear/Belkin/Linksys models but it is less than half the price of most 300mbps models, and the cheaper N300 models can't do 2.4GHz and 5GHz at the same time so not great for a mix of old and new connecting equipment.

My reason for purchasing was my Comtrend powerline kit packed up and I needed to stream 720p content to a XBMC PC, something not really possible over 54G wireless. No issues with the N150 though

waste of money this router, much better models out there for similar price.

Such as? There are similar priced routers but they don't include a USB adaptor (around £15-20 separately).

A weak wireless signal is either due to radio interference - next to a microwave or loads of neighbours on the same channel for example or you are have obstacles such as thick walls between the router and your end point (laptop etc). Either way it isn't a fault with the router - blame Physics!
