Cheapest Wifi Router.


I need a VERY VERY VERY VERY VERY Cheap router.

Just for one room. It will just be used as an Extender (connected through a LAN cable to the main router, a WRT54GL).

Cheap as possible.

Should just have just IP by DHCP. PPPoE connectability will be an added bonus.

I dont care about a custom firmware.
Already have Tomato running on the GL, and DD-WRT on a Netgear which is at the other end of my house.

The 54GL is in the center of the house btw. This one will be at the other end (ie. my room).

TIA.

Re: Cheapest Wifi Router.

try one of those TPlink routers. If this is not going to do any hardcore work ( like torrenting, gaming and stuff, it should be fine )

or the D-Link DI524+ ( whichever one has wifi ).. its damn cheap. I wouldve given you mine, but youre around 3 months late :|.. gave it to my dad so he could use his lappy on his bed cuz of his back problems so he wouldnt have to be wired.

Re: Cheapest Wifi Router.

Buffalo ... be it hardcore or softcore ... it wont fail you.... the lowest model should cost around Rs 1800 or so it may be a few hundred bucks more but it will never let you down... no signal loss ... now slowdowns ... no abrupt restarts ... which are some of the common problems of cheap wifi routers

Re: Cheapest Wifi Router.

Hoping for something even cheaper.

Its just to extend the network. Nothing around 1500 or below maybe?..

My country! In thy days of glory past
A beauteous halo circled round thy brow and worshipped as a deity thou wast—
Where is thy glory, where the reverence now? Thy eagle pinion is chained down at last,
And grovelling in the lowly dust art thou, Thy minstrel hath no wreath to weave for thee
Save the sad story of thy misery! Well—let me dive into the depths of time
And bring from out the ages, that have rolled, A few small fragments of these wrecks sublime
Which human eye may never more behold
And let the guerdon of my labour be,
My fallen country! One kind wish for thee!

yeah i guess thats more or less what i payed for it. got it from prime and i think it was a bit less than 2.8

but yea i think the belkin was cheaper.thats why i said i didnt remember what the price was but considering it lives up to the hype, for me it was pretty decent.

Anyways..
