Help with finding a cable router for 100Mb BB for under £40


[link to this post]
 
hi guys, i was wandering if anyone can reccommend a good cable router to use with the virgin media superhub in modem mode. i am currently on the 100Mb package and i think this will be being upgraded to 120Mb when the double speeds come around. i would preferably not like to spend over £40 if possible.



heres some info on what i need to connect to it.



i have a computer and xbox 360 connected via ethernet, i have an ipad and 2 phones connected by wireless. i would imagine i would need a gigabit router. i do like to play online games such as fifa 12 and world of warcraft so if i need to spend a little bit more then i can probably stretch to around £60 if needed.



i have been looking at these on ebay but wandered if anyone thinks any are better or what one of the 4 would be the best.

If you are using 120Mb product (or, i practice, the 100Mb product) you will definitely need at Gigabit router.

Having quickly looked at the products you have linked to only the Belkin F5D8232 N1 definitely states that it has the three aerials that you do require to get the best out of Wireless N.

thanks for the quick reply,

are there any other routers that you could recommend?

is it worth spending a little bit more and getting a dual band router.

thanks

Look at smallnetbuilder before you make a purchase. A lot of the cheaper routers won't have the power to route 100Mb/s.
