    hello,
    my bt router seems to cut out the internet alot even with the usb connection.
    the wireless is worse thou.
    the ethernet is worse than the usb connection i dont think my mobo ethernet socket is to blame.
    i want a router that i use eiether ethernet or wireless that dont keep cutting out
    and i need wireless for the nintendo wii

    what make of router do you swear by that dont cut the internet out alot?
    i want a routet that is reliable and has quite alot of options.
    adsl2 modem would be nice.
    around £80 i would be willing to pay
    any ideas?
    lodore

    Hi lodore,

    I have a Netgear WGR614 for two years now and I never experience any problems with it. True Firewall and easy to configure.

    See some feature below.

    Hope it helps.:)

    "NETGEAR's 54 Mbps Wireless Router lets you experience the blazing-fast network wireless speeds of 54 Mbps. These higher speeds make it a snap to web surf, download large files, videoconference, stream high-quality digital movies, MP3 music and photos and play online games. This wireless router also works with 802.11b wireless products so you can use it with your existing 802.11b devices and your new 54 Mbps 802.11g devices. Auto-sensing chooses the fastest connections possible on your 10/100 Mbps wide area network and four local area network ports. True Firewall (SPI) advanced security provides maximum protection from professional hackers. URL blocking and e-mail alerts provide parents with controls to limit access to inappropriate web sites and monitor children's access. Simple to install, you just follow the cues shown on your PC screen and your router will be up and running in no time. Smart Wizard auto-detects and configures for the best ISP connection, while UPnP™ (Universal Plug and Play) makes it easy to use your computers, gaming consoles and other client devices — wireless and Ethernet — for gaming, instant messaging, and other applications."

    cool thanks.
    i can get a linksys wireless n router for about £80.
    i just want one that is reliable and has some tweaking in the firewall etc.
    i need a reliable wireless connection for the wii and want reliable connetection for the pc so i can surf the internet with no cut outs lol
    it needs to be a modem as well since its replacing my modem router that i use atm.
    its a shame the buffalo routers dont have modems in them because i like the buffalo routers

    this forum is biased!
    ok, here you go.....

    not a clue how much they are, but both are 'top-standard' of routers, check reviews and prices.

    just a couple suggestions.

    for adsl2+ routers:

    1. Belkin N1 Wireless Router 802.11n
    2. Netgear DG834PN 108Mbps Rangemax Wireless ADSL2
    3. Belkin 7633

    try and find out.

    if you need a cable router, i suggest linksys WRT54G series, very reliable and fast.
