Bright Box vs Original Orange Livebox - Should I change?


[link to this post]
 
I have had the Bright Box delivered, is it worth me using it and plugging it in when the Livebox works OK? The livebox is from circa 2006. What benefits will I get over my old Livebox?

Never had a LBox but from what I heard Yes! BBox faster, up-to-date, easier to get stats?

Agreed with Xrayspex's comments.

Additionally, my Bright Box automatically works across two channels (1 & 6), also giving 300 Mbps on WiFi compared with 54 Mbps with the Live Box.

This shows up particularly when I am using TeamViewer across my three PCs.

Switch over to the Bright Box router today! Itís real easy to configure and is a well thought out router with a good wireless signal 300 Mbps.

You have the Orange broadband connection settings HERE. smile

But don't you lose your 2nd line, if you use the Bright Box.

Yes! Unfortunately you would lose the use of the second line Voice over IP (VoIP) service provided with the Orange livebox router. Though there are rumours Orange is going to finish with the second line use.
