Which router for unlimited fibre package?


[link to this post]
 
We just signed up to plusnet and were wondering, which router model do they supply for the unlimited fibre package?

Thanks in advance.

Thanks, although that surprises me.

The technicolor website lists the 582n as an entry level ADSL2+ gateway?

Don't know about the 'Unlimited' (up to 80Mb), but on 'Essentials' (up to 40Mb) it's a Netgear WNR1000v3.

Does a pretty good job.

Thanks for the replies, I suppose it must have a firmware upgrade, will have to wait and see how it performs wink

@Tezwood, are you using the plusnet supplied TG582n or one of your own?

Correct. LAN port 4 is changed to a WAN port.

The general performance is OK, but the wireless is poor.

I use one of these. It's suited me fine, on IDNet FTTC 40/10, and Plusnet 40/2 and 80/20.

The Netgear an earlier poster mentioned was supplied with the 40/2 - that was poor wireless as well. When I moved to the 80/20 they sent a 582n.

I now have mine plus two spares tongue.

Was that sent to you as a new customer, or did you just change package to Essentials from Value?

The Netgear is not listed as a currently supplied router, but is in the "Older Hardware archive".

Thanks Robertos, helpful as usual! I was intending to keep using the GF's parent's old HH2.0 as a WAP, but one of those AirStations might be an idea as a backup wink

Yes at the moment, I will probably upgrade to something better later this year.
