Basic modem/router/hub required


[link to this post]
 
I'm looking for a friend for a basic inexpensive router - for BT connections - to replace a BT Voyager modem.

He's on a short telephone line, straight line distance to exchange is 1.1km, so 2km actual at most. It would be helpful if the router had a 4-port hu as well.

Any suggestions?

Buy a new Netgear DG834GT, or even a Sky-locked one that can be unlocked, on eBay for < £20.

I've currently lent the guy my 'old' DG834. A good solid piece of kit, but I intend to keep mine as contingency and as temporary work around for other's problems.

I'll look around, thanks.

You donít mention you want the router to have wireless and must it be new or second hand. confused

It's replacing a BT Voyager modem, wireless is definitely not needed. I don't know the man's view on new or second hand, though it seems I can get a new DG834 for c.£30 I'd guess he'd be happy with that.
