New Modem/Router

  amonra 13:26 15 Jul 2008

I have almost finished transfering my office from one end of the house to the other and now I feel the need for a wireless router to let my other half work in the lounge.
Having perused the web for modem/routers, I'm now more confused than when I started ! The number of models available is mind boggling and each one seems to offer just that bit more than the other.
So my question is, what do our members recommend ? With such a wide readership there must be a common "Best Buy".
I dont want all the fancy bells and whistles, just a good, solid, reliable modem for use with a telephone line,(not cable) preferably with 4 lan ports, firewall.
What's your favourite please ?

I'm a fan of Netgear. Good reliable kit, and very easy to install from their CD.

Just one other thing - the Netgear router I mentioned above supports 802.11g and older, but not the new N protocol.

What does your adaptor support?

I have been eyeing the Netgear routers and most people seem to give them a good review. The DG834 series look good although the PN version seem problematic. I think I will stick to the G version which has been tried and tested. Thanks again for your input.

I have used the Netgear DG834 g version for a long time now without any problems at all. Go for it ! I also use my desktop in one room, router attached to my desktop and wife uses wireless laptop elsewhere in house problems at all.
