I currently have a Netgear DG834v4 which I've had for about 3 years. It has been very reliable and stable for me, but I don't really ask much of it. It usually syncs at 8 meg or just under on my line which if memory serves is 2.1km from the exchange.
I've just bought a new smartphone and realised how much I now need a wireless connection here. I know I know, why didn't I buy a DG834G in the first place? I've no idea
Anyway, I was wondering what you guys would recommend. I'm on a tight budget so I don't really want to be spending more than £50 or £60. My ISP seems to recommend routers with Broadcom chipsets which my current router has.
I could get a new 'N' wireless router.. perhaps a D-Link 2740B or maybe a Netgear DGN1000. Or perhaps I could just stick with what I know and pick up a second hand DG834G off Ebay. I know that the DG834 routers are now considered ancient though.
Any suggestions appreciated.
