Subject: [access-uk] Will this router/modem do the job?

Hi all -

Been absent for a few days, but back now and need to crack
on!

I've found the below wireless router/modem on Ebuyer for
under £38, but is 
it a good spec for setting up my pc and laptop on a wireless
network?

It bothers me that it doesn't mention Vista, when talking
about the 
operating systems that it is compatible with! My PC that
will be on the 
network runs under XPHome, but the laptop under Vista home
premium.

Anyway, I'd appreciate thoughts on it, and any suggestions
maybe for other 
Netgear router/modems that might for some reason be a better
choice.

Here then is the spec:

This 802.11g wireless router adds considerable power and
flexibility to your 
network. Five products in one, it combines an ADSL modem,
router, 10/100 LAN
switch, 802.11g access point, and SPI True Firewall. It
gives you 
uninterrupted continuous connectivity to your network
resources and the 
Internet, and allows
you to share your broadband access with all of your
networked computers 
wireless or with wires using Ethernet cables. Featuring
high-speed 802.11g 
wireless
capability - up to five times faster than 802.11b - it
allows you to 
download large files, videoconference, and distribute and
play high-quality 
digital
movies, photos, and MP3s in the blink of an eye. Simple to
use, it plugs 
directly into your ADSL line. An integrated switch lets you
directly connect 
four
computers or any combination of four computers, access
points or printers. 
Setup couldn't be easier - NETGEAR's Smart Wizard install
assistant and 
on-screen
help guide you through each step. The Smart Wizard
automatically detects and 
makes the best connection to your ISP. True Firewall
protects your network
with business-class security against intruders, including
logs and alerts of 
break-in attempts, while VPN pass-through makes it safe to
connect to your
business network from home or office. The contemporary,
sleek design of this 
unit suits your home or office.

The DG834G gives you instant connectivity with or without
wires, and works 
with your existing 802.11b devices as well as your new 54
Mbps 802.11g 
devices.
A built-in ADSL modem furnishes direct, always-on Internet
connectivity and 
multi-user access sharing at speeds up to 140 times faster
than dial-up. 
This
powerful router distributes MP3s, digital movies and photos
with ultra-fast 
10/100 switched LAN ports capable of speeds of 200 Mbps, and
shares a single
IP address with up to 253 users. And, it boasts double the
memory and a 50% 
faster CPU than many popular routers.

No need for a separate modem - this connects directly into
your ADSL line. 
Built-in Port Forwarding settings, Universal Plug and Play
(UPnP) and 
Virtual
Private Network (VPN) pass-through make it simple to play
Internet games, 
send instant messages, and host Internet services. User
interface matches 
your
local language (English, French, German or Italian). It
supports PCs, 
Macintosh, and virtually all Ethernet devices, and comes
with an Ethernet 
cable for
connecting your first computer.

True Firewall using Stateful Packet Inspection (SPI) and
Intrusion Control 
features Denial of Service protection from hacker attacks,
while VPN 
(Virtual
Private Network) pass-through permits secure access to your
office or 
corporate network and enables you to host VPN services.
Content filtering 
lets you
control access to inappropriate web sites and limit usage by
time of day. 
Logs browsing activities and provides optional e-mail alerts
so you can 
monitor
access. DMZ support allows unrestricted access from the
Internet to one 
computer (for hosting web services).
