We put the router through its paces, and the review also shows how to configure the QoS controls, which with the rise of catch-up TV services is becoming more important as people try to manage their ADSL2+ connections so that one persons usage does not impact adversely on another using the same connection.
If you are a router or other broadband hardware manufacturer and would like us to carry out one of our in-depth hardware reviews with a view to publishing in the new year, rather than the more usual 300 to 400 word summaries hardware usually gets then email us [email protected].
