Router recommenations

Hi Can anybody recommend a decent router for Telewest Broadband.

I need one to connect three pc,s to the internet.

The one I bought a "Mercuty" it turns out they have had a faulty batch ( no wonder is was a pain to get working ) turns itself off after a couple of hours.

Many thanks

I Have recently bought a 4 port cable\dsl gateway router. £49 PC World. Tell you what "It's spot on" Belkin also have an FREE helpline 24 hours.

Support, if you need it is free and they do answer phones also stay with you until the problems solved. Had mine for a year now ( cost a hell of a lot more then ) and no problems.

Seems like the Belkins good enough for my needs,

HI I bought a Belkin router and I can't get this to work either.

It works fine until I try to add another computer.
When I add another the internet stops altogether. As soon as I unplug the other computers it works fine. without changing any settings.

I have tried the add computers wizard, when it reboots nothing works.
Any ideas anybody.
