ADSL router recommendation

    I'm looking to get a broadband connection and wanted some advise to which
    router to go for. My requirements are:

    1) wired system to keep costs down
    2) to be able to network 3 PC's
    3) prefer an all in one adsl modem & router

    I've seen the Netgear DG834 for £87 inc vat. Are there any other decent ones
    around that I should consider?

    Thanks

    The 715+ at about the same money and is pretty full featured so will
    handle any software you want to use including the tricky ones like
    netmeeting etc.

    I just bought an Addon MC8000UE from a local shoppe up here for about
    £70.

    It's actually on the Maplin store as catalogue item A12BF.

    It worked almost straight out of the box, and access perfectly from
    Mozilla browser. My entire collection of iMac, 7100 and Win98 box all
    share broadband, and even file share as well.

    That was my choice a month or so ago and I've been perfectly happy with
    it since. It's not yet needed rebooting or dropped the connection for
    no reason. There are cheaper options from dabs and ebuyer but the DG834
    is a safe choice IMHO.
    I'm sure there are. The standard answer is to refer you to

  8. Ive just bought the Addon MC8000UE-S4 for about 50 quid from Novatech !! Its
    sold as their own brand when you search their site , but its badged as an
    ADDON.

    Set it up yesterday. Working well so far.

  9. No problems with my Dynamode either bought a week ago 40 quid from
    Scan Computers I reckon you are only paying for the name with most of
    the ones over 50 quid but would advise to stear clear of the Origo .

    Very interesting! The picture, purporting to be their ADSLR4 router is a
    rebadged Origo. The Addon router according to Addon's site is a totally
    different case.
    Methinks that Novatech sell whatever they can get their hands on at the
    time as an ADSLR4 router.

  14. Various people have commented on the Origo. I got mine from :
    http://web6.scan.co.uk/Products/Info.asp?WPID=70361
    for around 40 of her majesty's finest portable portraits.

    I got it up and running easily. Only snag was the manual, which has
    two essential bits of info missing:
    1. Under windows XP the supplied config utility only works if you
    start in safe-mode-with-networking and log in as "administrator".

    2. To configure with a web browser (such as with a proper operating
    system) you need to know that the login is "admin" and the password
    "epicrouter". It doesn't tell you this anywhere except on-line - and
    if you don't have a service you can't find out!

    Doesn't appear to be.
    Fair amount of support on various forums.
