Re: compatable routers for bt infinity ?

You can use any cable router.

 

I have a Buffalo WHR-G300NV2 as a wireless access point but it will also work when I get infinity.

 

There is 2 possible drawback, this router only has "fast" ethernet so just 10/100 Mbps so no gigabit and the wireless N is only on the 2.4 GHz part of the spectrum so it still sits with all the other wireless networks but it gives a strong wireless signal out and my wife is very happy with the wireless performance.

 

Good news it is as cheap as chips and I got it from the BT shop for less than £25.

Everything he said Smiley Happy

 

There are better routers, but at £22 the G300 is a good cheap replacement for a hub.

Ty for the replies guys
I'm thinking of getting one of the netgear cable routers, namely the n750.
I live in a three storey house so I'm gonna spend and get a decent one
Your help is appreciated

I use a Billion 7800n great modem / router. You use the EWAN port to connect to the OR modem. Much stronger signal on wireless for me.
