Router for Fibre


[link to this post]
 
Can anyone tell me what router PN use for their fibre products?

What is a good alternative router? I get confused by the myriad of products available.

Thanks

They have a Technicolour TG582n. Personally I use a Netgear WNR2000 but that will need mordernising in the New Year.

There are plenty of routers out there that do the job very well and range from the mid £20 mark up to silly money. Just depends what it is used for and what features are essential.

I like Netgear and will look at the 3500 but each to their own.

Those being the most important questions.

I do fine on a £23.nn Buffalo NFiniti, which has better wireless than either of the two PN routers I have. (The Netgear and the latest 582N).

Is the Asus RT-N15 or RT-N66U a contender?

Sorry I should have responded to the features I am looking for.

I think a Wireless N router should be able to do better than 100Mb wired ports, so gigabit ethernet is a requirement and I would like a USB port, USB 3 would be great but I don't think that is realistic at present.

Would a D-Link DIR-826 be suitable? Looks as if it would to me *but* it is remarkably cheap
