Has anyone got any experience with the shitty sinus 1054 dsl wireless router/modem?
We have one of these as it came with our new DSL connection and its been kinda ok, but it is getting to me for a few reasons. There are a few things that I hate about it, but the biggest ones are as follows.
1. The DHCP server is not reserving ip addresses:
Now I know thats not the idea of a DHCP server, but I have seen them configured so that if your machine goes offline for some reason, the DHCP server will reserve that IP addy for a small amount of time. The effect being that you do not get a new IP addy every time you reboot. This router does not do this, my old one did, my work ones do. It is not running out of address as I only have 3 devices and the DHCP address range is relatively huge.
I do not wish to use static IP's as some of the computers often get used on different networks and its a pita changing IP's all the time.
2. I cant work anything out on this pos router cos its all in German with no options for English. I havent found any English biosses (new word for the day) and all web sites with peer feedback/advice are naturally in German so I cannot find info's easily for this router.
Ahhh I hate it. Someone help me before I go out and buy a new one!.
p.s. We might be going to GMX or 1&1 soon.. Anyone know what the fritz dsl modems are like? English OS? Nicely configurable? Do they have built in dyndns support?
Thanks for any advice.
