Re: Best ADSL router?


[re: ayrshiredude] [link to this post]
 
Going from memory, on the Technicolor on many screens there are "Details" and/or "Config" buttons towards the top right. The line stats are somewhere in there I think.

On the Hub, as it is basically a BT Home Hub 5A, the stats are likely to be in the Troubleshooting section, after you have logged in to the Router itself. (192.168.1.254 perhaps?)

If you actually need a new router is it something like this you are looking for?

For my ADSL connection I'm still using an old Netgear DG834GT so can't comment on the pros and cons of the TP-Link, anyway if you feel like it there are 971 customer reviews to trawl through tongue

I've been through every setting and link within the router settings page and there is definitely nothing else there. All I can see is the "Bandwidth (Up/Down) [kbps/kbps]: 440 / 18,357". There is definitely nothing about noise or anything else.

I have just ordered a Plusnet Hub one from Ebay which cost me £25. Brand new and sealed. Basically a BT Hub 5 which, though not perfect ticks the right boxes and is a decent enough router for the money.

I suggest your connection speeds are not going to improve much beyond what you are already getting
