Can I use Netgear DGND3300 dual band n, which is ADSL-, not cable-compatible, as a second device (wireless repeater/extender) connected to VM Superhub?
I want to extend wireless range for a single laptop and improve compatibility with older 802.11b devices. Or do I have to get a device (like the T-Link AP I've seen mentioned in some forums) that is cable-compatible instead? It would be great to use the Netgear model, which is not that old and was not inexpensive.
Just switched from Talk Talk to Virgin Media. Installation was fine. Initial settings meant BB was actually slower than Talk Talk. After adjusting, got to a decent level 9-14 Mbps but nowhere near the "up to 60Mbps" I'm paying for. Furthermore, wireless coverage in the house declined.
I had upgraded the Talk Talk-supplied router (vintage 2007) with Netgear 3300, which worked very well from its position in the loft extesion at the top of the house out to the study/shed at the bottom of the garden (just barely). With SH, however, I can't get a signal on first floor our outside. Also, my HTC/Android mobile, and two Kindles, don't work with the SH on 5gh mode.
Soooo, reading posts on forums like this, I want to connect a device directly to SH, enable modem mode, and use the wifi from the second device.
Thanks, sorry for the long-winded post.
