Very affordable, quick setup, works well!
on 25 February 2009
I bought this cable router after googling a couple of reviews, specifically to link both a PC and an XBox 360 to a Virgin Media cable internet connection.
The router itself is about the size of an average paperback book, and the build quality is about the same as my cable modem ie. fine if you're locating it somewhere that it won't get knocked about too much (PC worktable or similar).
One point that I noticed - the router is actually a white couloured ABS shell with a black trim, as opposed to the picture here on Amazon which looks like a black coloured shell. Also included in the box are a wall-plug power supply, a quick-start printed guide, and a mini-CD containing a much more comprehensive user guide in PDF format.
I already had the couple of ethernet cables that I needed handy and it only took me about 5 minutes to connect up the hardware, and about the same to configure the PC. (The XBox connected straight to XBox Live service automatically).
I'd estimate that all in all this has saved me at least £100 when compared to a wireless network solution, taking into account the cost of a wireless router, and corresponding hardware for both the PC and XBox!
