Hi there guys!
Had a problem with my Wireless router and now need to source a new one, was looking for some advice please!

A few requirements:
Speed preferably 270mps (as there is around 5 or 6 computers using it),
compatible with Vista,
and im using Phone broadband (not cable).

Ive had a look in argos at Netgear DG834N modem router (cat no 675/6303) for £119.99.
Would be willing to spend around the £100 mark.

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated! Thanks in advance.

You won't get a wireless router that does 270Mbps, if all the computers are close together and support draft N then you may get 75Mbps, if they're spread all-over a house or don't all support wireless N then you're probably looking at 20-40Mbps at most. This does only matter if you want to transfer stuff between the computers, if you're just sharing internet then the bottleneck is your internet connection and you might even be able to get away with a much cheaper wireless G router.

The DG834N is a pretty old router isn't it and has only had average reviews lately hasn't it? In this review they seem to rate the cheaper Linksys pretty highly.
