Seems like a very good value router.
Only £16 for a brand new, branded, 3 year warranty router.
Very good reviews

Will work on fibre optic and ADSL phone lines.

Much better than your standard router, very cheap replacement.

You will require a modem. Perfect if you have fibre optic as you will need the BT Openreach modem anyway.

THIS WON'T CONNECT DIRECTLY TO AN ADSL LINE WITHOUT USING AN ADSL MODEM.

Beat me to it ha was just about to update, it's available for £15.98 from the link on the right or clicking '25 new from £13.82' heat added

use a a twin powerline adapter kit and use it as an extra wifi point

I got one of these a few weeks ago from Tescos - about 20 pounds, so this is a good price.

Be careful tho - you *must* reflash the firmware to the DD-WRT stuff; without that, the device is flaky, and loses wifi periodically; with DD-WRT it performs flawlessly.

And increase wifi radiation and get more headache

this is just a router not adsl modem right?

I doubt this is better than your standard ISP router, they're probably about the same. Nevertheless it's a great deal, and I've voted hot.

This will work for cable, you just run a lead from the superhub to this and turn the virgin box to modem only mode help.virginmedia.com/sys…202

dont know if it will run DDWRT

Just got this, easy to setup and looks good too, bargain for the money.

I have fibre optic with Talktalk. The speed is 72mb downlaod and 20mb uplpad.

They connected a Talktalk wireless router to the open reach router and although via ethernet I get the 72 mb download with speed tests, via wifi I can't get more than 35-40 mb download .

Ia this router compatible with the open reach router so I can replace it by the one of Talktalk? Could I get 72 mb download (speed tests) with this router?

There is a lot of things that may be causing this....
I doubt this router will reach 75mb throughout the house. On my talktalk router I can achieve around 60 mbps.

- Walls/position of router
- Wireless Channel
- Other devices connected
- Wireless card in laptop (is it a fast one?)

If you are looking to top out your speeds you need to invest in a £100 router. This router probably is a bit better than your standard talktalk router, but I cannot say it will be miles better

I'm not an expert when it comes to IT networks but I know enough to know that walls, position of the router, devices connected and wireless card aren't the cause of the "slow" downlaod speeds I get with the talktalk router.
-I tested it with my devices within few centimeters to few meters from the router with direct visibility.
-I tested it with one device connected only multiple times.
-I also tested it with two different laptops and smartphones which wireless cards support 802.11n.

The only thing I didn't test was switching channels around the 11 wifi channels, I just tested 1, 6, 11 and another one I don't remember

I don't know why but I'm pretty sure that the cause why I never had more than 42mb download in wireless speed test (which only happened once out of more than 30 speed tests) is because the talktalk router is because the router can't deliver more speed via wireless.

My talktalk router is a Huawei, maybe yours is a D-link and that's why you can get upto 60mb via wifi.... If your is a Huawei then maybe I should try eveyr single

I don't mind to pay even evne uptoo 100 for a better wireless router than the one of Talktalk, but it doesn't seem easy to find wireless routers compatible with the fibre optic open reach router...

Mine is the Huawei one. Actually I am trying to get the new talktalk router for free, however it has been a lot of hassle so far. accessories.talktalk.co.uk/pro…=35
They really do not want to give these away, apart from to new customers.

I cannot believe there are not many routers out where the modem is built in for fibre... definitely they will come. Personally I was thinking of buying the Billion 7800DXL amazon.co.uk/Bil…0xl
Seems like the best and most reliable router on the market. Shouldn't have any problems with the BT openreach modem..

20.20 right now.

You will need a modem yes, they are quite cheap, your internet provider may be able to give you one.

Personally, I suggest you buy a router with a modem inside if you do not have a modem already.
