Good ADSL Router?

bruiser, Jan 28, 7:45am
I use a PCI based ADSL card which is great, but using a 2nd PC via a network cable sometimes means the 2nd PC has slow internet page load times and generally has a mind of it's own. Completely random stuff. So, I want to look at a stand alone external ADSL router and was wondering which one would be best (most reliable and solid).

I'm not interested in wireless thanks.

I wouldn't avoid thomson, very solid little units. Been using a few in a business environment with quite a few users connected, have no issues with it.

Thomson are great modems, I'm talking adsl/router (not the single pc v6 model) But the 585v7, Mines been going over 18months now without being turned off. Also the Telstra Clear use the Thomson tg789n on their VDSL network.

avoid thomson they are cheap and nasty reason why isp's give them away. Belkin work ok but a lot dont work well with voip.

Linksys WAG160N are bout the best.

Get something with a broadcom chipset. They are the most stable. And with most you can run DMT tools to tweak your SNR margin and get a better line speed. For this I run a Dynalink RTA1025W

ADSL 2+ compatible would be the way to go. As thats the way of the internet future.

They don't give them away, What do you think the 1 year contracts cover, Otherwise you buy them 858v7 $199 . So please tell me why they are cheap, and why they are nasty ? ?
