Please suggest me a new ADSL wireless modem router


[link to this post]
 
I desperately need a new adsl (don't have a adsl2 line but I believe they will work too?) wireless modem router to replace my aging DG834G which seems to be the root of my connection problems recently.

I brought an emergency stop gap Netgear n300 recently, which is absolutely appalling! It's getting taken back as soon as I can decide on a better replacement.

It seems a complete minefield choosing a new modem these days. Could someone recommend me a few sub £80 models, which would prioritise reliablity and range?

Any advice much appreciated.

The "N300" covers a range of devices. I wonder if your connection performed better with the DG834 due to it's Broadcom chipset (does depend on which version you had).

The Broadcom routers transformed my connection when I was on ADSL - see the link in my signature.

I can recommend the Billion 8800NL - around £65 comes with a Broadcom chipset and is also future proof as it can be used for VDSL(FTTC) as well as ADSL.

I've just installed one for my dad on his standard ADSL line - all went well smile

I like TP link products, they seem to be a good price and offer a lot. I have never had one of their ADSL routers, mine is cable, but I know someone who do and it seems to be stable and does as well as other routers considering the distance they are from the exchange.
