    We've got something like 10 devices in our house that runs off the router. It's actually a good idea to try HUKD's first than Amazon...is there anything I need apart from a HUKD account to sell on there?

    Paypal is people's preferred payment method, bank transfer for some... a good amount for reputation would be good to show you're a decent trader.

    im sure you can send it back anyway, how open is it, i mean can you not just wrap it back up?

    Thats the thing with buying from places like amazon, returns policys can be pretty strict, unless its through a firm opposed to an individual, i will make up the difference btw

    just got off of the phone, they said you can still return it to amazon, you may not get the full price but a partial refund, tho i bet if you can wrap it as close to how it was originally you will still get a full refund

    say look, my mum bought it - we thought the antenna would be a screw in one in the wrapping loose, we undid the wrapping to see if it was in there, it wasn't thats when we realise she had bought a wired router
