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

Hi Andy,

The first of these routers, the DG834G, is Netgear's most popular router.  It 
is quite a mature model now, but the firmware has undergone several revisions, 
as has the hardware, and is what I tend to recommend to people who want a 
simple ADSL router for their house.

The second, is nearly identical to the first, but has a larger range on cards 
that support the new Max-range technology.

Personally, I would go for the first model, unless you have a real issue with 
wireless range.

If you are looking at other manufacturers, try Draytek 
<http://www.draytek.co.uk>, as their routers are very reliable, and have a lot 
of extra features, but are slightly more expensive.

Thanks.
Andrew.

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:

More recent and more expensive:

| 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).
