the philips modem router and usb adaptor is £24.98, which is also good!

this also looks good, unless anyone has seen a better one cheaper??

nice, but posted … nice, but posted alreadyhttp://www.hotukdeals.com/item/286460/philips-wireless-router-for-dsl-cab/



that was over a month ago, so this is fine, also gained an official 'hot' as it got over 80

What does it mean by "USB adapter"?

To summarise it's £20 for the cable version, i.e. if you use Virgin Broadband. Alternatively, £25 for the ADSL version, suitable if you get internet via your phone line (BT / Sky / Aol etc).
Each version includes a USB adaptor. This plugs in to your PC to enable you to pick up the wireless signal broadcast by the router.

Both versions seem to be in stock at the moment...?

HTH,

I'm looking to replace my current talktalk wired modem with a wireless router, does the £25 completely replace the talk talk modem or do you have to plug the wireless one into the talktalk modem?

Is the USB adaptor for equipment that hasn't got wireless capability or do you need to use it even if your laptop is wireless enabled?

Thanks.

I would think that this router can completely replace your ADSL modem. Also the USB stick is for systems (PCs/laptops etc) without an intergrated WiFi capability. HTH

Thanks Zippo, I think I'll be making a purchase!!

Unexpired, a repost is usually allowed after 1 month, thanks :thumbsup:

I haven't read the 'techy' details but this might be a cheap alternative to purchasing a wi-fi adapter for your xbox 360 etc, as you may be able to 'bridge' it to your existing wi-fi router?

Someone else may be able to confirm this who has one etc.

Nope, this particular device wont do it. Even if it could, there are cheaper ways to do it (using wireless ethernet bridge devices).

Just a little warning - this device (DSL/Cable Router & USB Adapter) does NOT include a modem, it is only a router - you will need a modem + this router in order to connect to the net.

If you have a Cable internet connection that is 'always on', you can plug this router into your current modem. I bought one last year at this price. Looks very stylish & sleek, but kept freezing, sometimes upto 4 times an hour. Took it back yesterday for a refund as Philips support advised unit defective. Hot for the price, if it works ok. Not voting as not sure if I had a one off, or whether is a common problem.
Bought a Belkin router instead for a tenner more (also with USB adaptor) & lifetime warranty.

Sister in law bought one and hasn't had this problem yet, maybe just a one off.
Belkin are good for the lifetime warranties though :thumbsup:
