      Advice on this router....

      Hi,

      I just received a router I bought from ebay.

      Firstly the I noticed the stand doesn't fit the router, then the power socket doesn't fit. So I'm starting the wonder if I have received the correct (D-link) router.

      How can I identify the model?
      Mine grey with loads of little indentations and is made by Sagem.

      I'll try and link a photo....

      If it is made by Sagem then it is not a Dlink, its a Sagem. I was almost caught out the same way

      The PSU is marked with the router makers name.
      The stands are always a bit difficult to fit.

      The PSU I received is Leader Electronics, which immediately made me suspicious.

      Thanks for the info.

      If you do need to purchase a new router again.

      Might be worth looking into a Linksys router on alternative router with stateful Packet Inspection
