    Mini-Review :: Ebuyer 1 Port Ethernet ADSL Modem Router

    http://www.ebuyer.com/customer/produ...duct_uid=48448

    Manufacturer's Page:
    http://www.origo2000.com/product/pro...?PAGE=asr-8000

    Well, what can I say. Bought this £30 router to replace a £180 Asus AAM6000EV after the port forwarding started playing up, and it was dropping the connection. Now, it is a bit poor as it comes out the box, so get the new firware from:

    http://www.wellgroups.com/wellftp/firmware/asr-8400.dlf

    Use the firmware upload menu option to upload that firmware, then reset the router. The menu looks a lot different now. All you have to do is type in your ISP username and Password, it sorts out the VCI/VPI and mode settings automatically. There's a more in dept menu for changing passwords (highly recommended, since it's set up as default to allow anyone access to the setup pages, I have changed this to LAN only through a setup menu), and various things like DMZ settings, which didn't exists on my AAM6000EV, and NAT port forwarding.

    At the moment it's acting as a DHCP server for my Lan, avoiding my IP address as I want a static one on the network.

    It is extremely easy to set up, all you really need to do to get it working fine is type in a username and password for your ISP, but it's worth going into the advanced settings and disabling access to WAN traffic.

    This is without a doubt the best router you can find for the money, did I also mention it can be an Ethernet ADSL modem, and a USB ADSL modem (setup like a cable modem, not making a fake dialup connection) and have a PC on the USB connection and one on the ethernet connection at the same time?

    The only thing lacking from this is UPnP, but this is such a new and rare technology that it isn't worth bothering about.

    Cut a few MS off my ping too, and it also reports line loss in dB as well as identifying the ADSL hardware installed at your exchange.

    Bargain

    Nice review!

    Would suit me down to the ground if BT would get my exchange enabled...

    Sounds the same as the Dabsvalue router actually..
    Is it connexant based?

    Bit of investigating, it is exactly the same as the dabsvalue router, I just used the usb drivers for your router on mine, and it works fine

    Dabs charge an extra £20 for theirs though

    whatever you do, don't try using the firmware from one or the other though..

    Cheers for this review, I've just bought one and was scratching my head trying to figure out where I'd oput my new Pipex ID.
    I'll be trying the firmware update this evening.
    I also bought the Ebuyer 22mbps WI-FI Wireless 4 Port Cable /DSL Broadband Router
    http://www.ebuyer.com/customer/produ...duct_uid=48410
    and it's fairly cool.

    Can I just check the model numbers....ebuyer tends to be a bit messy at times

    the E-buyer is for and 8000-model

    the firmware is for the 8400 model, but also includes the 8100-model which is the one port variant.

    so effectively origo rebadge the 8100-model as a 8000-model?

    ...excellent review, btw.

    Nice review

    I bought the ebuyer 4 port adsl modem / router after frying my
    linksys bef41 and dlink 300g+ combo, well actually it was the
    dlink that fried and I had been having a lot of hassle with em concerning intermitant lag etc.

    I must say the set up was easy and the price of £47 is equally good conpared to the dual price of my previous setup.
    I had it connected up and running to 3 x pc's on the network within 15 min's no probs
    Didn't even have to update the firmware.

    damn I was just going to put the link in 4 the router but ebuyer
    are doing system maintenance
    Founder of stupidity

    Help.
    I've upgraded the firmware, which was fab.
    But, I can now only enter a username and password via the 10.0.0.2 connection...and I can't connect to Pipex.
    I think I need to alter the VPI, VCI things...
    Anyone help on these
