I have a Netgear DG834g which was supplied by the isp and it suits my basic needs.

Won't your isp supply you with one?

I believe many isps will so long as you give a further commitment.

ened Thanks for the reply, I had too laugh when u said "Won't your isp supply you with one?" there a joke..ive never seen so much hostility between a company & its clients!!
Thing is WE cannot use another ISP....

how many computers are you connecting?
I use BT Home Hub, But I also have a Belkin which is no problem at all.
Most router manufacturers are good so really just take your pick unless you have specific needs.
By the way which ISP do you use, and why can't you change?

What is the situation with your isp then?

If you could change you would definitely get one from your new provider.

This is the one I set up for my son over at kingswood.

As for the dropping out, I think thats just a permanant feature of krapoo

Do you need wireless capability? If you mainly intend to use a wired connection to the router I wouldn't go for a N standard wireless router. Save your money and go for the Netgear DG834GT or one of the newer DG834G (54Mbps) models.
