Fast wireless router

  willyv 20:54 03 May 2010

I need to upgrade my old netgear wireless g router for use with my virgin broadband. i do a fair bit of streaming and seem to get a lot of stopping/freezing of the stream. I guess this is due to the router. Can anyone recommend one that can do the job better? Or do you think it could be contusion issues on the broadband pipe?

Lots of things will affect the computers speed, first check your line speed using a speed checker click here You need to do this several times over the time you want to use your computer for a few days. Also if you are using the wireless connection try it with a LAN cable to see if this improves the speed. Are you on cable or phone connection? Contention is not usually a problem with cable. I found my computer speeded up when I changed to a different anti-virus.
