My current router is a Billion 7402R2 (Argon 432) that has served me well with UK Online and now seems to be working well with Xilo (Pro 24 - Tiscalli - Globespan chipset). The problem is I now require Wi-Fi and don't really want to just tack an access point onto it.
Would ideally like to keep under £100 but I could probably stretch to £130 or so. Decent QoS, at least 2 GbE ports (although only 2 would be pushing it), 802.11n (5Ghz? dual band?), IPv6 (can't be that far away can it? ) and ideally the ability to tweak the line (set margin etc.). Dual WAN would be neat should I ever get FTTP but I'm probably living in dream land with that one. x)
Am I forgetting anything feature-wise? Hopefully something can meet those requirements (or come close) and not be any slower than my current router.
My stats are:

Who's good on build quality these days? I hear about overheating Netgears lately. The Billion 7800N looks good on paper but people seem to be having a few issues on the whirlpool.net.au forums. Seems to be well liked elsewhere but I'm not going to assume it's good just because my current one is, and that's not perfect.
