Wireless N Router / ASDL2+ Modem

Found 9th Jan 2010
Can someone give me some advice as to the best replacement for my Netgear DG834G which I have been using for the last 5 years or so. I would really like something which is slightly future-proofed and which is reliable.

Any particular reason you want to upgrade to N router? You also have to make sure your computer is compatible with a n router. Coming back to ADSL2+ modem, that inbuilt into DG834G modem and is compatible with 21CN upgrade. If 100ft distance is not an issue, I would suggest staying with DG834G as it is very rugged and trusty bit of kit.

Most of my devices are N standard and I would like to be able to use them in some rooms where currently the signal doesn't reach. I was looking at the Linksys WAG320N which has just come out but there don't seem to be many reviews around yet. I like the ability of being able to attach a usb hard drive and use it as a media server.

Looks like a sexy bit of kit but the reviews are very mixed. I wonder if it's a firmware issue.

whos your isp ? if its o2/be then dont get the Linksys WAG320N, ive tested 2 and had slow throughput issues with them. it shows the correct sync speed (14meg) but only got 1 or 2 meg throughput.

I am with Talk Talk, synching at 8 meg with throughput of about 7 meg. Attenuation on the line is currently 27db but my noise margin is pretty low at 7/8db.

we have had the vision n1 on telephone line, no problems with it firm ware is updated through belkin,
now we have changed isps from crappy bt and went to virgin media cable so bought a another new n1 for cable . wouldnt have any other one,
