alternative wireless routers for Plusnet fibre


[link to this post]
 
Hi All,

Currently on PlusNet fibre, great service, but wondering if there are any better wireless routers out there I can use, instead of the one provided?

I use the openreach modem to get Infinity 2, and route the signal to the router plusnet provide, so wondering what upgrades/options you folk use or have suggestions for?

Thanks in advance.

zrerz.

Current one is the Technicolor 582n, hence why people are questioning your parents order with a Netgear device which should only be an archive thing since they don't sell it any more.

This look too cheap to me, probably rubbish router. Too cheap. Don't think my parents won't be pleased with this. I am going to order this one better one for my parents: http://www.broadbandbuyer.co.uk/products/18474-billi...

PlusNet support if ever there is a problem would expect the router they supply which would make things easier on the parents if they have it just to swap back into the equation and see as the TG582N is free and you just pay £5.99 postage it is a no brainer really.

Why you were being asked to pay £40 for a router they no longer advertise is any ones guess.

It's possible adslmax caused a request of one, and charging for non-standard supply seems reasonable to me.

It works ok for me on my TalkTalk connection. Same here - only £4.99 for p&p. As stated earlier, it's a no brainer (even as a back up).

Was Eclipse Home Option 1, VM 2Mb & O2 Standard
Now Utility Warehouse (up to 16mbps) via Talk Talk
