why cold? other than the possible non-uk plug it looks good?

Probably because its only G, but the number of N's there are misleading.

does this come with an 802.11 N adaptor, cause £20 alone for that is good

No, the bundled USB adapter is a 802.11g - however that still normally sells for about £15 on its own.

You will require a separate ADSL modem to connect this to the Internet (in case you were wondering).

My router has went on the blink and i needed a usb adapter for a pc that i have hooked up to my main tv, so this looks a cracking deal. Thanks op:thumbsup:

Or a cable modem. Or a bundled router (like Be's, for example) where you can disable the router part of it and just use it as a modem.

the wpn111 adapter is so much trouble, the amount of BSoD's and other problems I had with this were incredible. Overheats easily too.

What makes you say that? I can't see in ADSL input there

This can be used for DSL cable broadband i.e. Virgin Media, unsure about ADSL.

I've had this router for many years now, bought it for over £100 at the time, still runs perfectly fine, transfer rate of about 1,500 - 2,000 kbps which is just slightly lower than 20mb broadband, definately hot! :thumbsup:

DSL is effectively ADSL unless you've paid a business premium for SDSL.

This router is clearly titled for Cable internet i.e. without a modem required for DSL.

2000kbps is 2 Mbps - a lot less than 20mb broadband/DSL.

It should be made clear for less techies that these kinds of router are not suitable for most of the more normal customers with a DSL connection (unless you buy a seperate modem) , just cable customers

I was reading an article about using wifi cable routers as wifi access points to extend your wifi (article ]http//ww…556).

No idea if this router is suitable but if it is, its an idea if you have any wifi black spots in your house.

non techie here - thanks i was just about to buy

+1

Can someone clarify for me, I currently have a linkys wrt54gs, would this serve any better perform more efficiently etc? I have very heavy usage.

code has expired

just tried. the code doesn't work anymore

This is a cable router it doesn't have an ADSL modem built in. It is designed to work with a cable router. The difference between a cable router and adsl modem router are >

A cable router does NOT have a modem built in and has a WAN port which is an RJ45 ethernet port for connecting to a cable router. An adsl modem router has an RJ11 port for connecting to a telephone line as the unit has a built in modem.

Very hot indeed, great price even for a mediocre brand. Got a Linksys recently though otherwise I'd be buying this. If only it supported DDWRT then it would be an immense deal.

True. ADSL is the most common form of DSL.

The industry have caused confusion around all of this. DSL is done over the copper wires of a telephone service. Cable (not DSL, or Cable DSL... just Cable) is a different type of service done over fibre optic cable.

This router will work with any modem, be it Cable, or A(DSL), as long as the modem can connect to the router via ethernet connection (ie normal network cable).

As you mention though, it's not typically ideal for ADSL users as most providers won't give you a modem (whereas with Cable they will). You're probably better off getting a router with a built in DSL modem if you have ADSL.

Spec for the router. It's designed to work with a modem with ethernet connection. So that can be Cable, or (A)DSL modem.

just a quick post asking for advice, i've currently got virgin broadband but not wireless, would this router connect to the modem and give me wireless or should i look for a standard wireless modem router?

it just doesn't make sence. the code doesn't work and the offer is expired, but the post is getting hoter.

Good price even without the code

If you have Virgin cable then this will do just fine as they'll supply the cable modem and you then connect that to this and voila.

You're correct. However the only ADSL users that should buy this router are ones with an existing ADSL ethernet modem, or an ADSL user who has a non wireless modem router. My opinion and advice for ADSL users is to buy a wireless adsl modem router. This router is primarily intended to make cable connections wireless. In 90%+ of adsl connections I install I usually will be installing an ADSL modem router.

To the person asking about Virgin if your connection is a cable connection then yes use this router, if it's an ADSL connection then don't bother buying it and get a wireless adsl modem router.

Which further highlights the confusion caused by the industry. Cable internet is delivered over copper wire too. There's just generally *less* copper between a cable customer and "the internet" than there is between a DSL customer and "the internet".

Just out of interest would this work with XP 64 Pro because I just switched from Virgin to Sky and now my Linksys wireless adaptor thing wont work as it doesnt like 64 bit operating systems.

Windows 7 compatibility site says 32bit >

microsoft.com/win…111

Some one on this forum mentions they have it working on 64bit vista and 7. Although might be some problems depending on the software version.

Didn't know about the DSL/ADSL bit so thanks :thumbsup:

2000 kbps (2mbps) is the actual transfer rate, thus comin to approx 18 meg if I am correct, as my full 20mb internet connectiion gives 2.3 mbps download rate.

Technically your connection is rated at 20mbps and your actual download rate is 2.3mb/s

People generally mix up Mbps and Mb/s

Mb/s can also be expressed as MBps which makes it even more confusing as a capital B makes all the difference.

Looks a good deal to me, added heat
