BT Business Hub

Following our office move we had to abandon cable internet and switch to ADSL (no cable in our new location)

I got the 8Mb BT ADSL option which comes with a business hub, this has a built in ADSL modem, 4 port 10/100 switch, wireless access point and firewall

I was VERY simple to install - plug it in, give it some basic settings and off it went

Its not as configurable as my Draytek at home, but it makes up for it in ease of use. BT should be commended for making this so easy to use. It is a good option for any technophobes or users that lack configuration confidence.

It seems to have a recommended limit of 10 concurrent users, so we will outgro it in no time, but it is a perfectly adequate solution at the moment
