From a quick look, the 8968 also has a USB port, so you can insert a USB memory stick and have a network drive which lets you share files between computers in your house. You could do the same with (say) dropbox or moving the USB stick between your computers. Prices are similar for the two routers. I went for the 8968 on the strength of 500+ 5-star reviews.
There appears to be 3 variants of this unit. What version of this did users receive from Amazon? 21 Dec 2014

does anyone have experience of setting this up with talktalk adsl. Did you experience any issues? 28 Apr 2014
I have mine set up on a Post Office connection at the moment. Talk Talk should be fine too I'd imagine, as long as you have your Username and Password which you'll get from Talk Talk customer services.
If I connect a USB drive with media one it, to this router, will a Samsung Smart TV with DLNA read the drive without having a PC on? 6 Dec 2014
Not 100% sure but it should work as it will connect to the drive directly via router . From any pc laptop etc you connect to you your drive via default gateway ip address : 192.168.1.1(default ip address of this router) on windows pc use browse command. Its all written nicely in the manual and it also has cd rom to help with your task.
Up to 4 at a time use ours. The theoretical limit is 255. But the performance of a shared Internet connection will quickly degrade as more computers access the Web simultaneously.
not sure about that all i could get about the router is the usb supports these functions Storage Sharing, Printer Sharing, 3G Modem Sharing, FTP Server and Media Server hope that helps
