Need to buy a router compatible with aol.

Hi i have recently bought a new pc which runs on vista home premium. Unfortunately i didnt realise i was unable to use my usb modem that iam currently using with my xp pc. I have contacted AOL and they suggested the 'Netgear DG834G v3'. To be honest i expected a few more to choose from but they said go for that. I have noticed a few people have had problems with this router, so if anybody could suggest an alternative, that is compatible with AOL, i would be very grateful.

with aol, it's a Thomson speedtouch 585. Ask them if u can have one.

Used the Netgear v3 with no problems. Bought the GT version secondhand and no problem with that either, so I'd have a standby router.

should also have said that i also used the netgear dg834g v3 for about 10 months with no problems :o)
