    My Netgear DGN2000 is dying a slow and irritating death, anyone able to suggest a DSL router for home with wireless? That 877w model is well out of my price range at over £300!

    For reliability and longevity you are way better off with a separate modem and wireless router. I like using the Vigor 120 ADSL Ethernet Modem and hook that up to a separate decent WiFi Router, it means that if one bit breaks you don't need to replace the whole lot and works out more stable, in NZ at least. You can probably even use your existing WiFi router with the new modem for a bit assuming it is not the WiFi bit that is causing the issues.

    The Draytek kit is solid enough to use in soho and schools and have had no problems with them when I've put them in for some high performance users in the past. You pay a little more for it than netgear or belkin tripe but well worth it IMO. Flexible as you need and never drop the ball.

    Draytek vigor 2710 here solid as a rock with decent wireless coverage, a little pricey but the last cheap Linksys I had gave me so much greif.

    I have a Cisco 877W , with 256Mb or ram, Advanced Enterprise K9 IOS..

    It's only flaw is that the VPN won't work from my Android.

    So I will be changing to a Draytek 2830n

    The DGN2000 shall be summarily executed for incompetence and grief once it's replacement arrives.

    I fed a TP-Link to a woodchiper once, one of the most satisfying days of my life. The photocopier was just plain lucky that it wouldn't fit in the chute.
