Hello all, I wish to tap the collective!
I have a particularly poor connection with our ADSL and it constantly drops out, sometimes for days at a time. Normally we have a ~2mb connection using a Thomson router, TG585 v7, which was bundled when we first moved in and subscribed to Tiscali (no choice in this). I now wish to upgrade and replace the hardware to try and improve the connection we have, and wonder what modem if any would be preferable for my situation.
Some things I guess you need to know;
I have been given a new and unused Belkin n750 as a router, but no ADSL modem, so don't need a router..
I am about 3 miles from the exchange by Google maps (the exchange mapper on Sam Knows does not accept my address)
I have replaced my house wiring and installed the NTE5 faceplate directly to the router, with no additional extensions anywhere.
As you know TalkTalk have shockingly poor support, and now we are able to finally leave the [email protected] I also intend to switch provider soon. They have been no help at all despite acknowledging there is probably a fault somewhere!
I've seen plenty of modems out there, from the likes of Vigor and T-Link, all of which get good reviews, but I need one that will hold onto a weak connection.
I'm sure you need more info, so please let me know what I've omitted.
