Summary: I connect via ethernet not wifi and until now have had no problems. But recently I have had intermittent loss of connection - it would typically disappear in the evening and come back two days later in the morning! We've established it is not the phone line or ISP signal at fault. It feels very warm to the touch and I am guessing it is overheating. The ISP is sending out a new router but meanwhile I have put it on a stand to see if that helps.
Summary: Bought this to replace my old Netgear dg834g. It works perfectly. I really don't understand the negative reviews - this is just like having my old super-reliable dg834g, but faster and with greater wireless range. I'm delighted with it.

From this visual inspection, it looks very good. The router was a stylist black gloss with rounded edges, it was small and therefore didn't take up space on my desk.
Summary: I was given this router from my ISP Virgin Media and have had nothing but problems with it,firstly it drops connection all the time, secondly I cannot access most websites in a different room to the router as the wireless signal is to poor. Don't buy this router guys it is complete garbage how it hasn't been discontinued I do not know.If your looking for a cheap ADSL router I can recommend the TP-Link TD-W8960N here on Amazon for £33 spend your hard earned cash on...
