    I have been looking for a 54Mbps wireless-G broadband router for a while now. I was looking around the net and the better makes all seemed to be around the £60-£80 mark. Then I stopped by Maplins site and they were doing a Linksys WRT54G for £69.99. Then I noticed the "special promotion" link nad so I got one of these with a FREE usb wireless card, ideal for the kids' pc. I nipped down to my nearest Maplins, about 5 mins away, and 30 mins later I had the whole thing setup. And because it's a 4 port 10/100 hub as well, I don't even need the Gigabyte wireless card I got given to me a few weeks ago. I reckon I got a bit of a bargain and I didn't even need to wait for delivery.

    I know this should probably be in a "special offers" thread, but there isn't one for networking.
