Old Wireless Router.

Now that I have upgraded to using the Plusnet Hub, is it worth keeping my previous wireless router - Thomson TG585 v8?
I am having a long overdue clearout of old routers, phones, cables, etc.
It is quite amazing what can be accumulated over the years!
Many thanks for any advice.

Thanks for that Oldjim but could the Thomson TG585 be of any use if (when) the Plusnet Hub fails?

I still have my old Linksys WRT160N on top my book shelf (had stop using it when I got fibre).  Never got round to throwing it away yet.

I connected an old router to give me an extra few LAN wired ports Smiley
