GetNet 150mbps N Wireless Modem Router


[link to this post]
 
Any one using one of these: http://www.scan.co.uk/products/getnet-150mbps-n-wire... - looks like it may be good value?

I may need to buy a router if I switch from Plusnet IPStream to xilo/uno LLU - any thoughts or other recommendations would be most welcome.

Which LLU service are you moving to?

We generally tend to suggest customers avoid routers that are not one of the "main" brands, simply as you never know what hardware/chipset they will contain.

Thanks for the reply Matt,

Maybe considering xilo/uno LLU http://community.xilo.net/threads/cpw-opal-broadband... Talk Surf 50GB - Up to 24Mb down, 1Mb up, which you linked me to in a recent email and that you said would be available from my TT LLU enabled exchange.

The GetNet router is made by Edimax and I use an Edimax PCI wireless card in a Win7 desktop that has proven to be very reliable and never drops a connection - not sure if that is any sort of quality assurance though smile

We do have more control on that product, if you do have problems but as the other posted replied, you might want to avoid them.

commanderergc,

Many thanks for your opinion about getnet routers; are they "awful" in general or is there one particular thing about them that is bad, are you perhaps saying that they are totally unsuitable for adsl2+...or even for adslmax?

Matt,

What sort of "control" is that? Do you sell approved or recommend particular routers for your LLU broadband? A salesman at xilo/uno actually said a tg858 would be fine and he could supply one but the price he quoted sounded rather expensive for a router that other ISP's send out for free - although this is, of course, generally on a one year contract rather than your monthly contract.

Any/all control.

SNR, Interleaving, INP... and we can even turn DLM on, if you want it.

We do indeed recommend a TG585 and no, you don't HAVE to get it from us... smile

Thanks for the info Matt,

The salesman said that SNR down would be 12dB for starters and then the SNR could be lowered if the line proved to be stable - this, at present, being adjusted from your end if a customer requests it. In the future he said that a customer would be able to adjust SNR via a web interface on your site themselves, is this correct? Would specific makes/models of routers cause customer tweaks to SNR from a web interface to be impossible?

Yes, both of those statements are correct.

No, we can do the tweaks on any line regardless of router connected but some will be more stable than others.
