Replacement for Speedtouch 585i Wireless Router

  Border View 21:21 25 Mar 2008

I recently purchased a D-Link Wireless router to replace my 3Com. Very disappointed with the D-Link performance.

A Thompson Speedtouch 585 has been recommended as being very stable for someone who is quite a distance for the Exchange.

I've done various searches, but it would appear that the 585 is no longer available. Can anyone recommend a replacement for the 585.

Hi Barmoor, I've only just figured out how to get back on here!

I got my Speedtouch from click here They are B grade but are like new. They aren't showing as available just now but they may be doing a stock take, if you ring them they may actually be in stock.

I don't know how you feel about Ebay but there a few knocking around on there too.

I notice they have brought out a v7 version click here. but I can't vouch for this as I don't know anyone who has tried it out yet.

Problem solived. Been onto Zen this morning (my ISP) and they came up trumps. New Speedtouch 585 due to arrive tomorrow or Friday. Plus I get their technical support.

Excellent! Post back with your findings.

As mentioned in my other post my speedtouch arrived today 24 hours after ordering from Zen. Following installation sync speed returned to 2496 straight away. Obviously the D-link not too hot on long distance from exchange. Its going back to Argos tomorrow.

Will post again after about a week to let you know what actual download speeds I achieve.
