BT Home Networking release BT 1250 wireless modem/router
BT has been selling the BT 1200 Home Gateway router for some time now, we published a review in June 2003. They have now released the updated BT 1250 device, the main difference is the integrated wireless connectivity, otherwise it is essentially the same router.
An introductory price of £159.99 is available until 28th February 2004, from the BT website. The router while not the cheapest device, offers HomePNA which allows you to connect PCs to the router using existing phone wiring, and therefore offers ways of connecting rooms that wireless signals normally cannot reach. Also for families who want a central device that can control when children have access to the Internet the Parental and Access controls are very useful.
