Just incase people dont notice, this doesnt have a modem built in for ADSL. You would need to plug it into an Ethernet port on an existing ADSL modem/router

great price, voted hot.

If it's an ethernet modem, yes. Just connect the router to your modem's ethernet port.

If it's a USB modem, no, not really. You could connect the USB modem to your computer then connect this router to the ethernet port In your computer and share the internet that way. That would require some computer fiddling though and you're computer would need to be on for all the other computers to get internet access.

As for connecting to another router, this will probably work but some routers dont like it when you do this. Possible also requiring some fiddling.

If you have ADSL and want to connect a router straight to your phone line do not buy this.

Hi and thanks for your reply.
I have ADSL and have a 4 port ethernet/usb router and modem - an ]AMX-64. So I can just connect this Philips to one of the ethernet ports... is that right? Or should I be looking at ]this Tesco/Philips deal? Sorry for all the questions.

Add this sandwich toaster to avoid the delivery fees, then when you've finally setup your router you can reward yourself with a ham and cheese toasty :-D:-D

can i use this for talk talk

For Talktalk, I thiiiink you can, as long as you leave your TalkTalk modem connected to the phone line, then attach a ethernet cable from the modem, to the router.

Or you could pay £5 more and get one with an ADSL Modem built in ]http//di…spx so you can get rid of the TalkTalk modem.

I have this router and would generally recommend it for this price. I currently connect my wii to it and have an adsl modem/router in bridge mode connected to the wan like Dear Mr Echo is suggesting.

It has support for automatic Dynamic DNS updating which is nice and allowed meshing of 2 wireless networks using WDS extremely painlessly.

Only real criticism would be that the configuration interface does not work with opera for some reason.

However despite all this my other router is a buffalo Airstation using dd-wrt firmware and would recommend that over this router even for £5 more due to the fantastic configurability (only needed if you like playing with these things (traffic shaping, bt throttling that sort of thing).

Didnt take a minute to set up and connected easily to my ADSL line.

Hi

I'm slowly going off Philips stuff.

I had Philips cordless phones and they were terrible. Also recently bought this router and I'm constantly having to reset it. But when you look at Network Connections in Windows it makes out the problem is with the modem. So I always reset that first, wheich would never fix it. But resetting the Philips router cleared the problem.

I'm waiting for a new Netgear one to be delivered now.

whats the wireless range for this?

Can this be used as a wireless router for a laptop and connection for an xbox360 via ethernet cable at the same time?. Also could you use more then one wireless laptop at the same time.

Regards

Gr8 price gr8 router Heat added, thanks

Im a bit slow with these things.... I also have a talk talk wired modem that plugs into my usb slot on the laptop (which also has an internal wireless modem i think). Can I use this instead of the wired usb modem, or do I need the £25 one? Do I keep the wired modem and plug it into the router, or discard it?? Cheers guys

You would need the £25 one (ADSL) and then plug that to the modem to get wireless.

Just ordered one today and it's still on offer :thumbsup:

My mate got one of these today, he's also got a USB Talk Talk modem. Couldn't get it to connect to the internet. So we need the £25 one?

Surely the £25 Philips wireless router is no good, as we're connecting it to the Talk Talk modem already. Or am I being blonde! :oops:

Ah, wait, the one above is a DSL/cable router isn't it, so it's no good for Talk Talk I assume?

This is the £25 ADSL one: hotukdeals.com/ite…pt/

Does anyone know if this this is compatible with the Nintendo Wii?

Thanks
