Decided to power down the router, wait a bit, then power it back up. After that it just sits there with the Internet LED and some of the LAN port LEDs pulsing every second or so. No Power or any other LED. Tried the Reset button, no difference.
So it looks as if the router has died, no complaints, it's given me good and faithful service. Got out my non-wireless DG834 and am using that.
Question. What do I replace it with?
I'm aware of this thread but that's 12 months old so things will have changed.
I'm not interested in Telnet ability, my usage is normal domestic, wired and wireless; no VPN or anything fancy. House isn't large, doesn't have especially thick walls.
I'm probably about 3km from the exchange. ADSL2. Line stats (attenuation/NM) down 41/6, up 12/6. Not interested in FTTC.
I've been happy with Netgear so would be happy to go with them again. Or with another make if recommended. TP Link? Asus?
I'd rather not put a specific budget limit, let's see what realistic suggestions I get.
Clearly I'd like to replace it as soon as possible, i.e. Saturday even
We have more and more laws, and less and less enforcement
