Wow, that sounds pretty good. I'm already with voiptalk so an even better
deal for me.

I scoured the web for a similar priced product and can't find anything that
approaches that price, at least not without some sort of contractual
commitment.

Well, it was looking like a good deal, until it worked out at £35 with
VAT and delivery... Happier with my Linksys for £11 more

but do you get £10 of credit with the linksys? I don't think so. That works
out to being around £21 more.

Try posting the right way around please.

You dont get the £10, no, but at 1.14p per min (plus VAT?) i'd rather
not bother.

Cheers, yes it does look like a good deal, has a LAN and a WAN port and says
it does QOS which is something the PAP2 doesn't do. It says it bridges but
it seems to hand out 192.168.x.x numbers to LAN clients so it must be a
router....which is nice

more info on http://www.speedtouch.com/prod190.htm

SNIP. It says it bridges but it seems to hand out 192.168.x.x numbers to
LAN clients so it must be a router....which is nice


But in the manual it says a DHCP client on the wan port, that seems madness
to me ???

not really, that's how it gets an IP address from the cable modem or
ADSL modem it expects to be plugged into.

Aha, of course, so does that mean it will act as a DHCP server on the LAN port or just forward on the IP address given to it from the ISP?

usually these things work in one of two ways :-

a) adopt external IP address handed over by DHCP by an ethernet modem.
Use DHCP to serve up IP addresses for LAN side clients.

b) get internal IP address from router on WAN port, use DHCP to serve
up internal IP addresses on a different subnet to clients on LAN side

so yes they act as both DHCP server for LAN side and DHCP client for
WAN connection.
