Ladybird Dress Up Wings, Wand And Hair Bopper by Party Bags 2 Go

This review covers my initial impressions of the router. I will update it when it has been running for a couple of weeks to indicate how reliable it is in real use.

On unboxing one is presented with a large rectangular "slab" of a router, not ugly but not a thing of terrible beauty. It comes with a UK plug and, whilst it was not too much of a problem, quite a short cable.

The "getting started" booklet is clear and concise.

First, you plug the router in and then you wait for it to initialise.

You then attach to the wireless network with a PC and connect to the router from a browser. You can set everything up manually but I chose to… Read more
