Netgear DGN1000 150Mbps Wireless-N Modem Router wi&hellip by NetGear

Orange supplied this router when I joined last year...

I could never get it to "properly" link my 2 PC's together with Windows 7 Workgroup (1 wired/1 wifi)... and Workgroup is damn simple!

Wifi was unreliable in the short time I tried it...

Changed house to Homeplugs so "wired to wired"... nope.. no fun...

Worst problem was that it wouldn't play PC games online... BFBC2 no connection, BF3 no connection, Dirt2 fine, CSS no connection... etc etc...

Tried Port Forwarding... that simply changed which games worked and which didn't and it wasn't consistent.. (it wasnt just a reversal, it was random)

Even removed the Firewall… Read more

5.0 out of 5 stars Damn good 20's worth!, 23 Jan 2012
Got one of these to upgrade my PC from the onboard sound which was decent, but not spectacular...

The game is a free download, and you can play on European or North American servers depending on where you live (to keep your 'ping' level down)

The game is fun, can be hectic, manic and occassionally annoying.. (you're happily running around in your little loltractor and a Pz III/IV knocks you out in one before you've even fired..!! Hrumph!)

Its a "bit" more strategy based than many shooters, but still an FPS

As I said.. DONT pay this price... Its RRP is 7.99 for "extras" not the game itself.. thats a free download...

What you get is NOT the game, but is actually Gold, a special tank, and a Premium account, (which only lasts for a while.. you… Read more
