I use this one
In reply to a post
Which is £26 and Robertos uses the previous model.
It has a nice wireless N range over 2.4 GHz but it only as 10/100 ethernet, but hey what do you expect for under £30
Ok, so I've decided to go for this one. If RobertoS uses it then that will do for me. I looked into the Asus with it's "amplified reception" or whatever, but I would rather buy two Buffalos for less than the Asus price. That gives me a spare and in the meantime I can use the other as a repeater station?
Which brings me to my next question. I am going to hard wire some points around the house. Modem downstairs with main router providing wireless coverage to same.
Then etherne cable to 2nd router upstairs covering wireless to same.
I then intend to hard wire 4 points (via loft and externalwall) to up and downstairs rooms, connected to 2nd router via patch leads. Does this complicate the repeater set up of the 2nd router or will it remain pretty much plug and play? if so I can reverse the situation and make the upstairs router the main one, but as the modem is downstairs it would be simpler the other way round.
And what is the big disadvantage of 10/100? I don't move info around the home, I just want wired connectivity to the net in each of the rooms. I assume I will be able to connect at 100 internally and at my current 40 Mbps externally? If FTTC jumps to 80 Mbps will this setup still suffice?
Knowing how it works is completely different to understanding how it works.
