Which Router

I am looking to buy a new Wireless router to give my house better coverage and hopefully faster speeds and less drop outs.

Can anyone recommend any decent routers. I do a lot of online gaming and streaming to consoles and want to be able to have a lot of control over the router with easy to use firmware.

Also looking to spend £50 - £100

Any ideas???

i've just bought a belkin play max, just getting used to the extra functions of it but alot faster than my usual sky netgear router.....

I use a Netgear DGN200 wireless router

DGN2200

Great router, firmware is checked automatically when you log into the routers web interface.

N speed and coverage is superb for me, I stream over the wireless to my PS3 etc without any lag.

I would avoid Belkin routers at all costs, my friends/colleagues have had them and they have all said how terrible they are and they had to replace them.

We also use a belkin router for the backup connection at work and it constantly drops wireless, the computer connected via ethernet is fine but the wireless drops after ~30 mins and you need to restart the router

What about this one?

I am a bit confused would the one above be faster at download etc than the one below:

I am not sure how different they are?

or what about this:

Would I also need to buy a modem? and whast would be suitable to get the best from both.
