Wireless routers: Compare features & prices Belkin Play F7D4402UK review http://www.which.co.uk/technology/computing/reviews/wireless-routers/belkin-play-f7d4402uk/review/
Belkin's Play F7D4402UK looks almost identical to the Share F7D3302UK router, but adds an ADSL modem and some useful, performance-boosting features. It boasts dual band and high-speed gibabit ports for media-intensive applications. We put it through our tests to see whether the Belkin Play could offer a better performance than the Belkin Share.

Useless with TalkTalk
This is rubbish with Talktalk, even after being careful to use the correct settings from their website. Best speed I ever got from it was 0.9 Mb/s but I can get 5Mb/s with the router supplied by Talktalk. I ended up having to set it up as an access point - i.e. using my original router and just using this to provide wifi

We're sorry to hear about the problems you've had with this wireless router. While we had a few problems setting the device up with our Windows 7 test computer, once up and running, data transfer speeds were certainly much faster than you've experienced. It does sound like your unit was faulty. I do hope you were able to exchange it successfully. If you have had problems getting an exchange or refund, please take a look at our consumer rights web pages which should be able to help.
I had to by a good router in a hurry and this seemed good in professional reviews. Big mistake.Setting it up it went through the first steps ok then said "FAILED TO CONNECT TO THE INTERNET CONTACT YOUR ASDL SUPPLIER" but I already had the setups in my hand, it didn't ask me for them. I went onto the router entered the values and was able to connect to the internet. by cable and wirlessly.What speed - a snail is faster got a BBC webpage in about 5 mins, downloading their own firmwhere update - gave up after 30mins and 0% completed. Gave up trying different things after 3hrs and took it back
