    Ebay router 14th Jan 20 at 7:15 PM
    Been a long time since i had a router delivered, just bought a backup router on ebay and its being delivered by 2nd class royal mail. Would the normal postie be expected to deliver this or the mail van. Anyone bought a recent router?

    Usually the postman, but some are a little larger and it may depend on how busy your posty is that day.

    Had them in a small van and the postie on foot. Pot luck.

    One of the routers i had was curved and the box was double the size of all my previous routers even though the main unit was essentially the same size. Silly curve design.

    I bought one of them last year. It isn't a large box and it was delivered by our normal postie rather than the parcel van. It's a decent router and a reasonable improvement on the older model.

    Not sure how you expect anyone to give a definitive answer.
    Depends on delivery methods in your area,the postie,room in their bag etc etc.

    if you log onto the router using supplied password , you can track it on google maps

    How do you logon to a router thats in the postal system?

    If your talking about tracking your IP on a map then it depends on your ISP. Mines never been accurate. 45miles away at best and usually its over 100 miles.

    I now know my answer, normal postie just knocked on the door and she gave me a parcel.
