router choice

  Bike-it 00:37 07 Sep 2010

I am about to change my router from a Netgear DGN 2000 and have narrowed my choice to these two routers. it will be used for surfing, emails, wireless printing, so which one is best, also will both be suitable for connecting to BT line?

Do you not require ADSL2? Neither of your chosen models state ADSL2 in their specs.

Im not sure if i would need ADSL2, why would i need it?

BT exchanges are rolling out ADSL 2 exchanges. If yours is soon to be converted, and your ISP offers a higher download speed, with a ADSL2 router you could take advantage of the offer.

The WAG320N is ADSL2+, so I wouldn't worry about that - in fact I havent seen an ADSL modem/router in the last couple of years that isn't.

The WRT610N will need an additional modem to work on an ADSL line, it doesn't have a built in one.

I was looking at the WAG320N, but I've also been toying with the idea of getting the Billion 7800N - I too had a DGN2000 but it had a nasty habit of losing connection on all its ethernet ports every so often, and now has died completely.

Thanks to all who offered advise.
It is now down to the WAG320N and the Billion 7800N.

Will both of the routers mentioned above work with normal broadband?

Anyone here know the cheapest place online i can buy the Billion 7800N wireless router?
Checked a few sites and they all seem to be waiting on stock to arrive.
