A friend is after a new wireless modem router for a BT phoneline. Ideally he wants 300Mbps wireless speed and range as wireless devices are used on two different floors and also in garden and a 1Gb ethernet port speed as has 500Mbps homeplugs. He is after something that you can get in Maplins or Argos for less than £100.
Have a look here. Bought mine six months ago and no problems what so ever. Easier to set up manually rather than the CD I think. Reading the Amazon reviews I raised the router a few millimeters on two sticks of wood so there's airflow beneath the router just in case it heats up too much. Wireless is very good in the garden and 1st floor. Don't know how it would be on the second floor though. Read the good and bad reviews. Good luck.
Thank you. He was on Tiscali and got a free wireless modem 54Mbps router then (years ago) and is now with Talktalk. He didn't get a new modem router when he switched to them but has since bought a 150N wireless modem router himself.
rdave 13 - blooming cheap that! Looks a real bargain but it only has 10/100 ethernet and he is after 10/100/1000
Then, to update on Rdave's suggestion, try this router. 10/100/1000, and excellent range. I use these at one location, and they are great. Also, if you want longer range still, they are easy to use with WDS devices from the same range (the 830, if memory serves).
Same router at Novatech (gig ethernet), with £3 delivery for £43, link. To be honest I only bought the other router as a standby for my D-Link. That was months ago but it's come about that the D-Link is now the standby one. These are cheap enough for a standby, as routers do break.
