Whew - there's a huge choice, and I guess you will get numerous people giving their preferred product. For starters, I am very happy with my Speedtouch ST 585 - easy to set up and a reliable connection with good wireless range.

I've had a Netgear DG834 for years and it's never missed a beat. Updated the firmware on request two or three times with no problem.

Whichever one you go for try to ascertain beforehand that it will give you your line stats in full. My Belkin,although it works fine,does not allow me to access my SNR margin or line attenuation stats which can be a problem if you are trying to sort out issues with your ISP.
