    Router - Midband (isdn)

    OK so im just about to get midband - cos i cant get broadband

    - for those that dont know midband is basicly Homehighway with BT's own ISP, and a few extra features

    - any way i have two PC s currently networked (directly with an xover) and i whated to get a router so i can share the conection, add a third PC and not have to have one pc on while the other is on the net etc

    - my dad has come up with this list (seen here)

    and i was wondering - which one i should get

    - i dont what so spend more than i have to, dial-on-demand would be good, i'd like not to have one that go a 10mb/s hub tho

    and also how does it cope with the whole 64k or 128k thing

    anyway thanks daniel

    I don't have a clue about the routers listed, but whatever you do don't get a 3com office connect net builder!

    I had one when I had ISDN - i set it up by accident, after about a week of messing with it.

    You usually specify whether to use dual channel or not - so don't worry about the 64/128k "thing."

    I'd say get a one port router and hook it up to a cheap 10/100 switch too.
    PHP Code:
    $s = new signature();
    $s->sarcasm()->intellect()->font('Courier New')->display();

    If you dot mind paying a bit then I cant recommend the D-Link DI-304 router enough.... Top class piece of kit that kept me extremely happy for the few months I had ISDN.... DHCP server, NAT, Firewall and a 4 port 10/100 switch built in.

    Sold it on Ebay about a month back since changing to ADSL. Expensive when new (£120 from Ebuyer) but I would buy another in a heartbeat if I was back on ISDN.
