I need to buy a wireless router, for our new HP laptop. I have borrowed an MBR-T2 router, which I cannot get to work with TalkTalk. Does the make of router make much difference, since I had assumed they were all much the same? Apart from their own, are there any recommendations for routers to use on TalkTalk? Any advice much appreciated.
I use a wired Safecom modem router SART4112 which cost me just £14.99 (it's fully ADSL2+ capable as well).
In reality it's a E-Buyer Guru version re-badged by the retailer and thus offered at a lower price; by coincidence I also have a Safecom dial-up modem after swapping it for a Diamond SuperExpress hardware version to boost a friend's system and surfing speeds.
One other critical point. The log on to the TT website/home page is your phone number @ talktalk.net and the supplied password (an u/l selection of letters plus numbers) and NOT an e-mail address and chosen password (these will allow you to go into the My Account section of the website.
