I need assistance on 2 counts.
first of all i have the aforementioned netgear DGN3500 ADSL router connected up to my ZEN broadband account.
Over the last year or so we have had issues with the Wireless dropping out at various points of the day for one or 2 main devices in the house. however some other devices and hard wired kit have no issues at the same time. I have used several different channels, upgraded and downgraded firmware, set fixed IP's, only use one of the Access points on the router. all with no avail.
I have about 10-12 devices on the wifi, normally about 8 at once including phones, laptops and iOS devices.
ZEN have as normal been absolutely fantastic in support but its at the stage that they have ruled out any DSL faults.
Anyone have any ideas? Is the router goosed or am i expecting to much of the device
Second of all if the router is goosed whats the best bet for a router that gives me what i need which is 1gb lan, good wireless coverage, USB storage (not essentail but desirable) easy configuration for remote access to my home server (VPN would be nice) and Netflix streaming and gaming.
I did buy the Asus RT-N66 but me being an idiot i didnt realise it didnt have a ADSL modem in it (not sent back yet). Did look at the DSL-N55 but wanted to guage opinion before i spent the £100 on it.
Shoudl i keep the Asus RT and just buy a Modem? although i dont really want YET another device.
