looking at your reccommendation there is now the v2 of the Buffalo router for £21.
In reply to a post
Yes, i saw that a couple of days ago, last time I looked. I would have gone for it when I got mine but mine was £23.56 delivered, and the v2 was something like £45. However ... the label on the back says V2. Pass!
You will find the price changes every day. I think I would just go for the cheapest and see what turns up.
Was there any settings you needed to change on the router for FTTC or was it all plug and play?
I ignored the CD. Then tried to do a manual setup off-line before migration day. Engineer did his line test, connected the modem, connected the router to it, zilch
Tried the wizard - I hate such things almost as much as installation CDs, zilch
Did a factory reset, tried the wizard, gave it my ISP username and password when asked, up and running in under 30 seconds. It even picked up my static IP address without me entering it. Amazing.
So my advice is use the wizard from the start. Similarly the auto-wireless setup which I never found easy with Linksys/Speedtouch/Netgear; press the button, click the icon in the GUI, job done.
The only setting I remember changing after was to enable it to respond to pings, to run the tbb BQM. And I had a go at manually setting the wireless channel from looking at InSSIDer, and found the auto setting worked better.
