I'm about to get Plusnets FTTC 80mb/20mb installed, however having read up on the supplied modem ( Technicolor TG582n Fibre Router) it appears as if this is a fairly bog standard and often troublesome device. There seems to be a consistent issue with WiFi speed and connectivity.
Considering my setup, I'd preferably like a router/modem device with a strong and stable wireless signal.
I currently have a few computers running, 3 of which are wireless and one, my main computer, is wired to the router/modem.
One of the computers, a Macbook Pro is roughly 12 meters away from me (and the router/modem) and directly in between is an eletrical box which I believe is severely disrupting the wireless signal somehow.
My current connection is 12mb/700k and my router is a Linksys WAG320N. While I can happily download at 1.1mb, the Macbook struggles to reach 200k. When I walk towards the router/modem and past the electrical box, speeds shoot up to 1.1mb.
So, it would be great if I could get some recommendations for an upgraded router/modem with a stable Wifi and so I can utilise the full 80mb/20mb (predicted) throughout my house.
