I am about to swtich to the new faster ADSL2+ service which is now available in my area.

I need to get a new wireles router/modem as my old Linksys WAG54G won't support the new standard and I don't think it can be upgraded.

Having spoken to a couple of Computer techs I am looking to get a new wireless router/modem from either:-

Draytek Vigor

What do you recommend?

Many thanks
Tony B

I think I will go for Wireless N, might as well go for the fastest available speed.

With my ISP (Sky) they gave me a Netgear DG834GT (Which I do not recommend!)

I then went onto and bought a Linksys WAG160N Wireless-N ADSL Modem Router. This is the best router I have ever owned! (click here).

With the Netgear from sky my connection was very intermittent, but with this new Linksys router it hasn't cut off at all! I highly recommend this router.

Hope this helps.
