Review of TELUSí new Siemens Gigaset SE567 WLAN DSL Gateway (in Vancouver)
I have been using Telusí new Siemens Gateway with their high-speed enhanced service for the last two months. It combines an ADSL gateway and a wireless access point (802.11 g/b) in one device. This eliminates the need to buy a separate WiFi router.
I found the SE567ís performance to be very good. I get full home coverage (2300 sq.ft.) with a stable signal. The signal strength is excellent throughout. I am able to obtain the equivalent of wired download speeds (2,609 kbps down, 612 kbps up) everywhere within the house. This is with 3 devices connected wirelessly to the network (Laptop with built-in WiFi adapter, Desktop with USB wireless adapter and PlayStation Portable).
On the flip side, the first Gateway I received was defective. However, Telus replaced it within a week at no cost.
