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

Hi George -

So, is this to say that going for the more expensive 2005 model would be 
best? There doesn't seem to be anything more up-to-date than that; Netgear 
have given links on their site to download drivers for all of their models 
to be compliant with Vista -

| Hi Andy,
|
| Can I be very blunt?  2003 to 2008 is 5 years.  Five years
| is how often Microsoft introduce operating systems.  Just
| look at it.  Windows 98. Windows XP. Windows Vista.
|
| No wonder it's such a low price.
|
| George.

| Hi George -
|
| I've been trying to compare 2 models, the link for the first
| one is an older
| model that came out in 2003; the second link is to amore
| recent model that
| came out in 2005. The former is half the price of the
| latter, and I can't
| decide which to go for; the second does talk of: Digital
| Signaling Protocol:
| ADSL2+
| , and I don't know what the reference to ADSL2 means.
|
| Anyway, here are the links:
|
| Older and cheaper model:

|| Andy,  Do you have the direct URL for this?

||
|| 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).
