eBuyer's deal of the day seems to be back on for this router. Wireless N for £11.99 delivered- you can't go wrong really! Choose super saver delivery to get it for this price.


As with previous threads - a quick guide to what this can and cannot do.

It is NOT an ADSL modem, you will still need your ISP provided/own modem/router.

It IS a wireless and wired basestation - you can use this to create a wireless network on your existing wired network - or just as a switch to add more wired sockets.

It IS a wireless repeater too - it can be used to extend an existing wireless network (out into your garden or into parts of your home your existing wireless doesn't reach)

It IS a wireless client adaptor too - you can use it to attach things like XBOX 360s etc. onto your wireless network (it's not a subtle solution but it DOES work and is a LOT cheaper than the official adaptors).

Obviously it does one of those 3 things at a time

Mine just arrived when it was last on HUKD. paid £11.99 and just installed following the cd rom wizard. Had to switch modem off and on again then worked a dream. I had lynksis unit before and could not get access is bedrooms. This unit gives me access there and in the garden. Just hope it lasts!

Does the main router need WDS for this to work

Does the main router need WDS for this to work


Yes, it needs to support WDS and it also needs to be compatible with the specific WDS implementation of the Tenda box.

Might be best to order a spare, to replace the wireless of your existing router outright, if the 2 turn out to be not compatible with one another.

Amazing bargain. I've got 3 of these:
1) Main home wireless router - works a lot better than my Belkin used to. Always getting top speeds around the house

2) Wireless repeater - used to connect my XBOX 360 to Live. It connects to the main router wirelessly and then a network cable from this to the XBOX. I also have another cable which goes from this router to my old XBOX - I can easily transfer movies from my computer to the XBOX for watching on XBMC via FTP.

REALLY easy to setup. Got it working within 15 minutes using the instructions in the eBuyer reviews.

3) Spare. At such a cheap price it was worth getting an extra just in case. Tempted to buy another at this price too!

good find - heated

Excellent, nearly bought this when it was reduced last time, so glad i waited.

If I did get 2 and used wds would it still run at its full speed.


And are they 300 Mbps.

gavjbrown;8306131

Whats it like when watching video on xbmc streaming from a pc.



I haven't streamed. I use FTP to transfer the movie to the XBOX hard drive and then play it with XBMC. It takes about 2 minutes to send the file.

Good price! Great for replacing the rubbish from Virgin Media!

gavjbrown;8306232

Bandwidth of the repeater is halved, halve for the wireless link to the router and the other halve for local wireless clients.

And are they 300 Mbps.

Nope, they are up to 150Mbit/sec. ]The 300Mbit version is £24.99 + delivery.

Would this work to create a wireless network with an ADSL wireless router?

I need to get my xbox connected to live but the xbox & the ADSL wireless router are about 20 meters apart in different rooms.

ok thanks, its very rarely I ftp anything . If I do its to update xbmc etc. I just stream videos from my pc when I want to so theres no need to store anything on the xbox.

For my old xbox I currently use a belkin f5d7330 ethernet bridge. But as I have bought a 2nd xbox for xbmc I guess another belkin like the one above would be my best bet?. I didnt have to make any changes the the main router.

According to the OP the box does support Wireless Client Bridge mode, which is what you need to connect your xBox to the Internet, via it's Ethernet network port.

If the Tenda box can act as a Wireless Client Bridge, it can full fill the same function as your existing Belkin Gaming Bridge.

Acording to the OP it does have the option to work as a wireless client bridge.

When connecting to my 360, I had to set the main router to repeater mode too, and then connect to the second router wirelessly so that they both "talked" to each other. There's two things I can think of to explain this:
1) Your existing router needs the repeater function too and then it will work fine - otherwise you need to replace your current router with one of these.
2) I did something wrong which made me have to set this mode for it to work, and hopefully someone can advise the right way to do this.

does any one know if I can do this

Connect a homeplug to my existing router in room 1

in room 2 connect a home plug to this Tenda router to give me 3 more hard wired slots to connect my ps3, pc, and 1 other item ?

Yes thats no problem at all you can do that and use the Tenda as a hub. Don't use the WAN port though. Use 1 of the 4 ethernet ports. Also you'll need to switch off DHCP on the Tenda and set its IP to be on the same range as your main router.

Btw I know this is a cheap great deal but I was a little peaved that these units don't come with an ethernet cable. Ah well small grumble.

Ordered one of these when it was posted last time as deal of the day. Fantastic bit of kit for the money. Just order another as a back up. :thumbsup:

Considering getting one of these to act as a wifi bridge to the Xbox 360. Main router is a Linksys 300Mbps. I get ~ 250Mbps on my main wireless PC, I assume that this is fast enough to stream to the 360?

Yes, but you'll want to configure the security on it.

Thanks. Someone else thats got one will have to answer that. It does come with a setup wizard on the CD though.

I never use the CD's, generally, you plug the ethernet cable from the modem to the WAN port on the router. Then a cable from one of the LAN ports on the router to the ethernet port on your PC.

That should be you up and running. To access the security settings, open the browser and go to 192.168.1.1 or 192.168.0.1 (depending on the default). Then there will be an option for the SSID (the network name) and the security settings.

Yes, this has a repeater mode.

Will it work with VirginMedia cable??

johnnyshuttle;8308226

Yes it will be fine.

i've been after a repeater for a while... but i couldnt find a cheap one so i could connect up my xbox live.. i was thinking of buying another sky router from ebay,flashing it and using it as a repeater, but i can cut all that hassleout,

has anyone used it for this purpose?

It is very easy to set up. You don't have to use the CD, just plug it in and browse to the admin web console. It has a wizard to set it up and auto detects most settings. All that was left was to select the security type and enter some passwords. All in all took 3 minutes max

It has quite a few advanced features but to get the basics going it does not get much easier.

Cheers OP, just what I was looking for, what a price!

I suspect the answer to this is no, but if I connect my virgin media motorola surfboard to this will it allow wifi access without the use of a router.

I have tried using with a basic access point, and the Aldi usb hub, but neither do the job.

Cheers

I havn't a clue about routers and wiring etc, so could anyone help me out.

My house walls are extrememly thick and lined, resulting in a poor signal which doesn't reach the 0other side of the house, i have tried the 'N' range, foil etc!

Anyway I heard someone mention the internet signal running through the mains, so you can plug in a adapter and get the internet wherevere you are. Has this product got anything to do with it or if not could anyone advise me..?

Thanks, and sorry for the dumb question

See hotukdeals.com/ite…pac and then you could add this router if required.

Hi all. Just wondered. I use my laptop to stream to my ps3 through ps3 media server. Ps3media server encodes .mkv files on the fly thus enabling me to stream .mkvs straight to the ps3. Only probs is my tv is 1080p, so I use 1080p .mkv files, but the movies freeze up, stutter etc. I realise this is due to my lack of bandwith. Can anyone tell me if this device will help that, or do I need something like the bit of kit I saw on here selling at amazon for £45 odd. Dont really want to pay that much to be honest. My wireless router is a Huawei EchoLife HG520b. Hope someone can shed some light on this. Thanks peeps.

I got a homeplug 200mbps wifi access point a few days ago to extend wifi to the loft, it works brilliantly. I now have 2 seperate wifi networks in the house and near enough complete coverage at over 50% strength everywhere which is not bad considering its an old house with thick brick walls over 4 floors.

Might get one of these anyway though, wifi is garbage you cant have enough access points really, at this price its worth having one on every floor.

How easy is it to setup as a repeater setting up the homeplug wifi extender was a bit of hassle and they are normally one of the easiest networks to setup...

An there you have it, so no its not going to be easy to setup, I cant be bothered changing my old linksys 54g router and I can see the hassle comming getting these working as wifi repeaters so think I will give it a miss. I think I would rather pay an extra £40 and get same brand homeplug wifi access points tbh...

buy 2, set them as repeater mode and then you have a wireless system in your house. I have a remote room with one of these set up in repeater mode (DHCP off) and the main unit in the lounge (again in repeater mode DHCP ON) and the 2 units 'talk' to each other and nicely extend me wireless throughout the whole house.
