They are netgear, the wee white ones. Don't know exact model. They put their own firmware on them, which is very basic. I found it more difficult to setup the wireless than I did my own netgear cos of their firmware

In the legal stuff tab on that page it does say that existing broadband customers will have to pay the on e time service charge for the router !

Free wireless router offer: - Wireless enabled equipment required. Available to all new Broadband customers taking our Size: L and Size: XL Broadband services (subject to status and credit checks). A non-refundable, one time service charge of £40 will apply to all new Broadband customers taking our Size: M Broadband service and all existing Broadband customers taking the wireless router. Should you sign up to our Size: L or Size: XL Broadband service and subsequently downgrade to Size: M within your minimum contract period you will be required to pay the service charge for the wireless router, currently £40.

I got one just by asking for it, I am on 20mb though.

@ #12 I have been looking into removing firmware and putting 3rd party on but no luck yet.

I just called them and they are sending me 1 out within 3-5 working days. I said that i was told by someone at there call center that i was getting 1 and never heard anything again about it.

I went through to the thinking about leaving department.
