Re: Moving to FTTC, Which Router?

No you can access the GUI via wireless, it also displays fine via an iPhone.


Many router manufacturers have that function disabled when shipped for added security for the user. It has to be enabled by the user if required.

I have a wndr3300. I almost bought a 3700, and if I remember correctly it has what netgear refer to as "guest mode". I believe that it can be configured as a stand alone connection to prevent guests from accessing the rest of the network.

Some of the review sites commented on their disappointment at the 3700 shipping with guest mode enabled. I will try to find the link and post it here. smile

Knowing how it works is completely different to understanding how it works.

Couldn't find the review site, but found this:

6. Multiple SSID/Guest Network
WNDR3700 supports up to a total of 4 networks, 2 on the 2.4 GHz band and 2 on the 5 GHz band. To enable Multiple SSID, log-on to the router GUI and click on the Guest Networks tab on the left. You can create additional networks in 2.4 GHz network or 5 GHz network, provide separate security password for each and also enable SSID broadcast and access to the local LAN along with enabling Video Mode for a specific network.

I am guessing that the USB connected device would be available to the guest networks as well, but not the login control panel. smile

No idea about the guest networks, as mine are disabled,
I think they were enabled by default.

Interesting, though i have to be honest, that Bilion looks aweful1 lol


Next question, Am looking at ADSL24 (Fibre 30 Pro) or IDNET (Home Plus Fibre)

Which one would be considered the better service? If any.


Any opinions?

Every where you go there only seems to be Netgear, Tplink and Belkin off the shelf, annoying it caught me out. Even travelled 110 mile last week to get more choice but ended up with a cheapy Tplink TP- WR1043ND £44 from Overclockers with a nice interface and easy setup.

The Netgear offer a superb after sales service although it comes from a US rep. Was advised after 38 mins to return the WNDR3700 £150 for the lesser WNDR3400.
They are big as well it wouldnt fit in to a space other routers have sat in for the last 11 years.

In the mean time found my trusted D Link DIR855 quadband with old firmware which i am using now.

I have a BT home hub brand new.

I did sign up with ADSL24 but after they wasted 10 working days they just put the order through to BT upon enquiry! 7 to 21 days later might be connected.
Cancelled got my money back inc setup and went elsewhere to Webtapestry, connected 5 days later.
