Just ordered one so I hope it's OK. Decent review on Amazon where it's a little more expensive
Probably 4% cashback too.

The TP-LINK Wireless N ADSL2+ Modem Router (TD-W8960N) is an All-in-One device that combines the functions of a high speed DSL modem, a 4-Port 10/100Mbps NAT router and a wireless N access point. The TD-W8960N is designed to give you a one-stop solution to acquiring and sharing high speed Internet access over a wired/wireless network. Supporting the latest ADSL standards to provide higher performance (up to 24Mbps downstream and 3.5Mbps upstream) and longer reach from your Internet Service Provider (ISP) Digital Subscriber Line Access Multiplexer (DSLAM), the TD-W8960N brings with it much higher speed than a dial-up connection without tying up the phone line. This device also supports TR-069, which automatically updates the firmware and other settings when they become available from your ISP. The device comes with a CD with an Easy Setup Assistant that helps you step by step to complete your Internet connection, wireless network settings and security configurations. This feature allows even novice users to setup the router products without sacrificing any key features, just play the AUTO-RUN CD bundled to have your network set up quickly & hassle-free.

voted hot I just paid £36 on Amazon after getting a wrong model billion. Dont know why someone voted it cold. OH well with that £6 I could have bought a pint of tap water in central London!

Also got a broadcom chipset and should be able to play about with the SNR

I had it for the few weeks. The computers at home some times don't connect to it after a period of inactivity but this seems to have improved after using b,g mode only (disabling n mode). The wired connection works fine without any problems.

I had to reset it couple of times so far. I bought it on back of Amazon reviews but a bit disappointed.

I think you need to update firmware to the latest version. I don't have any disconnect problem with wireless N.

I paid £40 for this nice bit of kit. It is holding a rock solid 19434/1235 Mbps connection with speedtest.net downloads/uploads of 16/1 Mbps. About 25% faster than my old D-Link.

Have not upgraded firmware on the basis of if it ain't broke, don't ...

Erm...suspect I may be getting the wrong end of the stick here but....if by SNR you mean signal/noise ratio, that is a line/copper based measurement - nothing you can do on the router...?

You'd think that until you come across ADSL modems with this feature. My Billion is Broadcom and I tweaked my SNR from 6.2db to 3.5db (widely recommended lowest db) and took my sync speed from 4100kbps to 4600kbps.

You can take the SNR lower to get higher speeds but you may experience instability, I had my sync up to 5300kbps but had some issues.

Well its not so much that I would think that - I know it, it is a feature of the physical line.

Not disbelieving you, just utterly perplexed as to how a router can change physical line properties.

Going to do some reading!!

The SNR is a physical characteristic of the line and can't be changed. It sounds like you're changing the SNR /margin/ of the router
