I've got a Netgear DG834G adsl wireless router for sale like this one:


Its nice and easy to set up, but has one major flaw (for me anyway) - it 
doesn't do port translation - so if you need/want to run
a webserver on 8080 for the outside world, and then point it at 80 on 
the Lan your knackered.

So I bought it, tried it and threw it in the corner, and bought a Belkin 

Not boxed, but with psu and disc - list price is around £85 - I'll take 
£40 or swop for equivalent CABLE wireless router.

First refusal to Larry since he asked about them, but anyone else want 
it if he doesn't?
