What can I expect from this router?
Robustly versatile, this router combines the functionality of an ADSL2+ modem router, NAT router, network switch and wireless access point in a single unit. The multiple configuration options of this router make for a suitable addition to your home or small office network.

What can I expect from the wireless functionality of this router?
Twin omnidirectional antennas will distribute 300Mbps at 2.4GHz frequency throughout your home or office. This gives you a stable connection with enough bandwidth for everyday web browsing, e-mail or gaming. WPS one touch setup will allow you to pair devices with the router effortlessly at the push of a button.

What wired connections does this router offer?
The ADSL2+ connection (RJ45) allows you to attach this router directly to your phone line, providing you with a transfer rate of up to 28Mbps between ISP and router. The Ethernet WAN connection (RJ45) enables connection to a modem or a pre-existing router to extend your network. Four 10/100 fast Ethernet ports give you connection points to allow for a reliable, quick connection, able to handle tasks that would require high bandwidth. USB 2.0 is provided to allow attachment of storage devices, allowing your local network to have a shared dedicated storage via File Transfer Protocols (FTP).

Safe and secure browsing
Built-in parental controls and guest Wi-Fi access enable you to control the amount of time spent browsing the web or restrict access to your home network. This gives you peace of mind that the files stored on your network are safe at all times.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Read the manual I had some trouble with this at first, unable to access the control panel online, and with the wireless signal dropping out every half hour or so, and having to reset the device to make it work again. The web is full of such stories. I can only say that you really do have to read the manual, follow the instructions, and you will get it to work. Briefly, you have to attach a computer via an Ethernet cable (not using wireless) and modify some network settings on your PC in order to get access to the control panel, then you have to choose the quick setup option in the control panel. It's not as easy as most wireless routers but if you follow the instructions it works pretty well and I'm happy with it.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Buy something else Sure it can be set up but it isn't just plug in and turn on, your expected to go in the background and set up a whole host of internet protocol. I couldn't even find the UK in the settings (every other country was there) - my advice buy something else.
