cracking price!

You can use it

1) To replace the Wifi on your existing cable modem or ADSL model: Disable wifi on the model and connect this unit

2) Buy 2 of them and create a wireless bridge to kit that needs an Ethernet connection

3) Use these connected wireless to create a wifi grid of Access points


Key points about this unit

1) Very stable no problems with reboots or dropped connections
2) Good range
3) Simple to set up (worth reading the guides written on the Ebuyer reviews page
4) Update the firmware (gui mods only) from the tenda site
5) Low power usage.
6) Build in switch so great for connecting up >1 device on Ethernet (TV, FreeSAT, XBOX360, PS3 et al)
7) I noticed faster connections speeds even on WirlessG laptops and the wireless bridge option is cheaper than powerline / homeplug options. I had one room where powerline did not work so I ordered 2 of these to make a wireless bridge.

Remember to order some Ethernet cables for this unit if you need. You will need one to configure these units. Ebuyer have the cables for
I've had one for 3 months now very good!

So this would be a good way to connect my TV to my desktop PC!
The PC is connected to my Wireless router via Ethernet and my TV has an Ethernet port so hey presto it connects to the Tenda via Ethernet and then wirelessly to the home network.
Does my router need to specifically support WDS for this to work?
Much cheaper than buying a Sony proprietary USB WiFi dongle and probably faster to. :thumbsup:

Cheers. Missed it the last time.

Bought one a week ago. Delivery was in 4 working days. Very easy to set up and is working fine.:)

I'm looking to upgrade my Orange Livebox Wifi ('g' i think).
Is this what i need to get my Orange Livebox to send Wifi 'N' signal?

Do you just wire this into a Livebox and it'll send the wifi in place of the original Livebox?

Any help would be appreciated.

had been about to get one from ebuyer a few days ago as I thought good value for money
..anyway phoned virgin on the off chance..and got instantly offered a free Netgear N300 router
.. quite pleased
This Tenda would still have been an excellent deal!

did you have to renew your contract for another 12 months? If not that is a great deal!

can you use 4 of them in WDS mode?

Nice - order placed.

our wifi doesn't cover one end of the house to the other, and we have 2 wireless modems/routers that we switch the connection between. could we use this to extend the wifi coverage?

regards

technical retard.

Yes, it's an access point (wireless extender).

does that mean it would just pick up and extend my current wifi connection, or would it need to have an ethernet connection?

I wonder, anyone know if I can connect this router up to the back of this TV via RJ45 and then connect to the main house router [Sky]?

cheers ears.

i am quite lazy when it comes to this networking malarky i have to admit!

Yes, but what is the point of IEEE802.11n when it only supports 100Base-T on the other side? That's like buying a Porsche and putting a lawnmower engine in it - it will drive, but it will not give you the performance you would expect.

Isn’t the real world throughput of 802.11n around 100 to 150Mb which isn’t much more than 100Base-T? So to extend your analogy it’s like buying a car that does around 100 MPH and driving it on a road restricted to 70; so an everyday thing really.

If you only have one device connected 100Mb seems fine to me. If you add more devices then the bottleneck quickly becomes the wireless network and not the Ethernet connections.
Gigabit Ethernet would be a bonus but for a lot of people I’m not sure it’s significant and when you are transferring a lot of data wirelessly 802.11n quickly becomes a massive bottleneck anyway.

But this is 'draft N' @ 150 mbps so given the mitigating factors with wireless your analogy is pretty much a dud ;-)

i have sky broadband, so would this enable me to connect this to the phoneline upstairs and access the internet through the ports on the new router as well as my old sky one which is downstairs?

Ordered - cheers me dears.

Wifi is bad for the brain man, and slow...

You better off preparing and wiring your house with CAT6/E and have lightening speeds connectivity.

Can you not just use it to replace your router?

If you have cable broadband, you can remove your existing router and put this one in its place, but you still need to connect your cable modem on to the WAN port as per usual.

I live in Aberdeen and have never been treated differently from the mainland UK before. This means that I have to pay £6 postage. I've bought from here before and I'm sure that I haven't this issue before. . Unfortunately this will likely stop me from ordering. I liked Ebuyer, but that's really annoyed me. Has anyone else experienced similar?

They may have changed couriers or it may even be a mistake!
I use ParcelForce for my business and they don’t charge a premium for Aberdeen but they do for Inverness (all IV codes) and also for the Highlands and Islands.

It's not just about speed 802.11n can triple the range as well as increasing the speed at a given range so although in theory you could saturate the ethernet port unless you're sitting on top of the router it won't happen, secondly that may be true for copying files between machines on your LAN but most peoples broadband speeds are significantly slower than 100Mbps so it won't matter there AND 99% of the population aren't using gigabit at home anyway so all the home gear will be on 100Mbps

In short yes in theory its a bottleneck but in practice for home users it's not worth worrying about

Gigabit Ethernet is fairly standard these days on desktops so it’s the routers that are holding back adoption of faster wired networking. Not that I think it’s a major issue for the majority of home users at the moment.

NO you cant... sony tv ONLY accepts sony dongles :cry: Ive hard wired my tv to the router...

Will this work as a ADSL modem/router on its own?

I have a Buffalo Router with built in Modem (Buffallo WBMR-G54) but it keeps on dropping the connection does this mean its just rubbish?

The question wasn’t if you could use a standard USB dongle but if you can use Ethernet to connect the TV to this router and then wirelessly connect this router to the main router in the house.
You say you use Ethernet to connect your TV but I guess you only have one router?

No, this is a router only and has no modem built in.

It isn't a great router. Netgear DG834G and GT routers sync well, and you can pick them up cheap now. The ip profile that your ISP is using might not be suitable, which means you need to talk to customer support. An i-plate may also help, very easy to fit if you have the standard NTE5 BT faceplate in your house. The wiring might not be that great in your house. There's a few options for you to investigate anyway.

It is available from other retailers, and certain auction sites.

This now says its £16.98 and with cheapest postage of £4.79 that makes £21.77 or have I missed something? I'm not sure if this is a good deal or not so not voting either way, until I know for sure.

Yes, you missed the fact that the deal has been expired.

Thanks a tonfor the infomation! I would add heat or rep like I keep reading about in posts but i'm afraid i'm a bit ignorant when it comes to those matters so don't know how
