First post here so greetings.
I'm shortly to leave O2 due to the Sky takeoever (probably to Vivaciti LLU O2W) and wondering in advance how tricky I'm going to find it to set up a new router (yet to be purchased). The O2 box came with an idiot proof wizard type setup but I will be pretty much in the dark this time around. If there is anyone who has changed providers can give me a general idea of the technical processes involved, I would be very grateful?
As a bonus question, if anyone has got any recommendations for a robust router (adsl2+), that would be great.
Thanks for those comments.
I'll check out the review page linked. The 7800n looks good though a bit on the pricey side for me. I'll see if there's anything a bit more affordable with that particular chipset mentioned.

Re: Newb alert, leaving O2 to new provider - router setup ti
The billion 7800(non wireless) is cheaper, i think the 7700n also has a Broadcom Chipset which matches the line cards that the telefonica LLU kit uses , or theres the DG834G V4 Not the V5 as that has a connecxant chipset, and doesnt work too well with the exchange kit, one of them can be had for around £40-£50 new, or you have some TPlink routers that also have the broadcom chipset , All will out perform the o2 router
