orange broadband livebox coverage

  Nealos 08:56 14 Nov 2006

Hi there does anyone have any experience of the Livebox's wireless coverage ??
I currently have broadband through another provider, I live in a 3 floor house and use Netgear DG834PN rangemax router which works fine.
I am looking at changing provider to Orange to take advantage of the 'free' broadbband offer but am worried about the range of the livebox.

Or maybe i can still use the rangemax instead of or in conjucntion with the livebox ????? please heeellllpp, i could do with knowing before swapping provider what my connectivity will be like

No problems around the house, 2 storey. To get a strong signal at the bottom of the garden, about 20 metres, I put the Livebox on a rear bedroom window cill, fortunately have a phone point nearby.

does anyone have any advice on connecting my current netgear WG834PN router to the livebox IF the livebox doesnt end up doing the job???? basically can it be done...????
