I agree that there products are overpriced. Oh really well I didnt know it could take up to 2 hours for optimization.Thanks. Well my connection speed is pants. Im not sure what it is now infact..its been that long since I cared lol. However once I move ill upgrade most likely.

Then you may understand at times its pure annoyance. I sometimes wont be able to connect and most of the time im fine. I put it down to crap hardware and driver communication..I know its not my PC as this has happend on a couple of pc's now. Im hoping the homehub will solve this issue or atleast decrease the problem..would be a bonus.

Well I can safely say the home hub is an improvement to the 330, the 330 has to be the worst piece of hardware ever to be designed.

Well BT are trying to update their exchanges so they can begin to offer 24MB by the end of the year in certain regions so hopefully we'll have some uber fast broadband. One plus of buying it on ebay is not having the after sales support which usually comprises of. " Upon ordering your Home Hub you didn't buy a wireless adaptor, can we sell you one for £49.99?"
