Wireless Router recommendations?

  haj84 16:29 26 Apr 2006

I have seen on the NTLworld website the Actiontec package for £99.99 that allows you to connect 2 pcs.

I would like to hear if anyone has tried this out, if it is worth goin for and any problems they faced in setting up/using the network.

Are there better alternatives anyone would like to suggest

I pressume Wi-Fi enabled laptops can log in to this network without extra adapters, etc?

Thanks in advance for any advice!

ithink that you would be wise to stay with a brand that is known to have good manufacturer support and has a large userbase on this and other forums. That way, you will find it easy to get accurate advice, which is very important if you are new to networking. Belkin, 3Com, D-Link or Linksys. As you are a cable customer, you may be aware that you need to purchase a router (sometimes called a cable/DSL router) rather than a modem/router.

ithink = I think, of course!

As "ade.h" says, stick to mainstream suppliers.

Buffalo, which I've used with Cable, is also straightforward to set up and reasonably priced - you should be able to get a wireless Cable/DSL router for about half the price you quoted - I got the Linksys WRT54GS router with bundled USB WiFi adapter in the PC World special offer for £50.

The NTL forums usually recomend Linksys

Thanks guys, you've confirmed my initial thoughts.

A trip to PC World or Dixons it is then...
