View Full Version : Which wireless modem?

12-09-2013, 08:11 PM
I use a regular Dynalink ethernet connected modem for my Internet use, but I'd like to play around with a wireless one - simply because I've never used one and would like to have it as a backup.

I have an option to have one of three modems as a gift from my friend, and I'd be keen to get an opinion on which one I should choose. They are:

1) Telecom Technicolor TG582n ADSL2+ Wireless Router

2) D-Link DSL-G604T ADSL2/2+ Generation 2 Modem Router

3) Linksys Wireless-N Home ADSL2+ Modem Router WAG120N

I don't want to muck around TOO much with these things, so which should I choose?


ps - running Win Vista SP2

Unfortunately I'd not pick any of them. Not a fan of the D-Links, the Linksys is prone to overheating and the Telecom will crash under load.

Well I've had 2 & 3.
Had no problem with either of them.

Of the three, the Linksys WAG120N is my pick. Make sure it's in a well ventilated area, preferably somewhere a bit cooler. As chill mention, they can have heating problems - but are great aside from that.
