I already have experience of the TG582n, and to be perfectly clear I don't much like it. I find the wireless range to be poor (compared to previous routers), and the fact that it has only 3 useable 100Mbit LAN ports means I need to use a switch anyway. (I have a NAS which works much faster with gigabit, yes I know this sounds obvious, but some NASes don't, or so I read).
Anyway, I am joining the fibre unlimited product. I don't see any point paying £6 postage for this box, and would rather put that money to a better router.
However, the PN sign-up process does not allow an option to not take their router. So, is their router essential in some way?
I have my MAC (from BE) and just checking before I hand it over.
