4.0 out of 5 stars Replacement for BT HOMEHUB on INFINITY, 26 Aug 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: TP-Link TL-WR841N 300Mbps Wireless N Cable Router (Personal Computers)
Hi

After not being able to stay connected on Mario Kart online via wireless last week (6 feet away from the hub!!!), I'd had the final straw with the BT Homehub 3 which I use for Bt Inifinity.
And so I set out to replace it and alas landed here. So:

The Good:
Easy to replace
(Up and running in 5 mins. Literally replace the hub and go to 192.168.0.1 on your PC and change connection type to PPPE and enter your username as bthomehub@btbroadband.com)
Better wireless speeds
Before connected via the Homehub where the PS3 is located would get less than 1mb via wireless. Now It tends to get 6mb via the new router.
Wired connections seemed to have remained the same (30mb for me)

The Bad:
The range seems worse (using G only)
Where I would have got 3 bars before I get 2 now but everywhere else in the house is full strength. However that said the speeds are still better.
One of the aerials feels loose
I'm not sure if there is anyway to check that this aerial is fully functioning

Anyways my main point is if you are looking to replace your homehub on infinity this will do the job for 20. (I struggled to find a straight answer of what routers will work on infintiy. It's cable connection routers not ADSL routers. Hope this helps.) I should also point out all of my connections are via G network. Again this should be taken into consideration when I'm describing this products range and speed.

So in conclusion I've not really had it long enough to fully comment on the wireless improvements but I would say so far so good. I was able to play an online match and stream music last night in the room that before would snail along and repeatedly drop connection. Therefore from what I can tell thus far I would say if you want rid of the homehub this is a worthwhile purchase.
