It really depends on what you've had supplied by your ISP.

Pro's for ISP Provided Modems:
[LIST]
[*]Easy to set up (normally come pre configured with settings)
[*]"Newbie" friendly
[*]Guranteed to work with ISP's Service
[*]If having issues, these are supported by your ISP
[/LIST]


Cons for ISP Provided Modems:

[LIST]
[*]Can be limited in what you can set up
[*]Most will not support wirelless N standard unless you paid extra for a more expensive model
[*]Can be very basic
[/LIST]

Pro's of "Non-ISP Supplied Router/Modems":

[LIST]
[*]Increased fuctionality
[*]Increased settings options
[*]Can choose a model that Support Wiress N standard
[*]Can be more pleasing on the eye (Some ISP's Modem/Routers can be just down right ugly ...AKA the one that orange used to provide was best hid behind the sofa.
[/LIST]

Con's of "Non-ISP Supplied Router/Modems:

[LIST]
[*]Can require more technical knowledge
[*]Can be harder to set up
[*]ISP will not normally give support for these if you are having technical difficulties
[*]Not NewBie Friendly
[/LIST]

Just a few points to answer your question, but they are just a personal opinion.

It depends what modem/router you get from your broadband provider.

The "important" bit of this one is the wired gigabit link. This potentially offers a faster connection (upto 1000Mbps) than you can get wirelessly. Can be useful for transfering files over your home network, HD streaming & online games, if you do not need it for that there are cheaper non-gigabit modem/routers out there.

I'd go for that Linksys N - Gigabit router on HotUK earlier which was at £30, but now proper pried. Still cheaper with the £15 cashback
