This is going to be short as, to be honest, I'm struggling to think about what I can write about it. I'll stick to personal experience and usage but as it's been so problem free, I think I'll struggle there as well. Looks ------- The router is sleek and minimalist. White in colour, it a has a row of flashing icon leds along the front to show what's working and what mightn't be. There is a small, stubby aerial on the back which is multi-directional. Setup ------ The router was bought of ebay for about 35 quid 2 years ago or thereabouts. I bought it simply because AOL would support it and I needed back-up if anything went ...

I replaced my Belkin Router with this one. I got the package with the USB wireless package for 49.99 fromCarphone Warehouse (very good price considering PC world had exactly the same one for 79.99!) Anyway, getting home and gettting it out of the box was easy. It contains two 'legs' so you can have the router pitched up on its side - looks alot better! It is also an 'apple' style white plastic that to be honest does actually look pretty sexy, considering its a router. Having put the power on, plugged in my ASDL line, the network cable and micro filter it says to run the setup wizard... If you go to http://192.168.0.1 on your internet ... Read the complete review

We had this router given to us when our previous Speedtouch Modem stopped working. This was our first wireless router, that was over 2 years ago, we haven't looked at another one since! So reliability shouldn't be a problem! Admittedly the speed is only 54MBPS, there are some routers which can transmit data with speeds up to 108MBPS. For those of you not in the know, 54MBPS is about equal to being able to transmit just over 7 Megabytes per second, 108MBPS is naturally double that. This should only affect LAN (Local Area Network) speeds however, very few internet connections in the UK, bar businesses, will have a connection speed of 54MBPS, the UK ... Read the complete review

This wireless router is a decent router at a very cheap price. It has quite a lot of features for a basic wireless router, including a built-in switch, modem and firewall. The router has 4 ports for wired connection and can support up to 253 devices on it. Each wired port advertises speeds of roughly 200Mbps, and wired devices have a top speed of 54Mbps. I have found copying files over the network is quite slow, but downloading files from the net and opening web pages is on par with the wired connection. The physical set up of this router is very easy. The box contains the router, a power supply and an aerial. I cannot remember if it includes the ... Read the complete review

~ Personal opinion ~ After deciding to upgrade my internet connection I also decided to get a new router and I decided to buy the Netgear DG834G to go with my new fast internet access. I do think though that as new routers come out the longer the names. I remember an old router I had the RM356 not its DG834G, I sometimes wonder where it will all end up. My advice is that if you require data to be transferred wirelessly at a high rate and maybe you have vast amounts of data you transfer frequently between lots of wireless devices such as laptops and gaming consoles then you will require a router with a high Mbps. The higher the better really which ... Read the complete review
