Which ones are recommended. Just brought a new TP-lINK TD-W8960N after recommendations but seems to be flakely with wireless compared to my old 3com officeconnect. Any recommendations, has to be rj11 adsl

3com are great and all that I used until they became hard to get.

I like Netgear.

Cant understand why the TP-lINK TD-W8960Nis not performing it has all the wizz and bang.

What else has been changed?

Get a normal non wireless adsl2+ router, (anything will just about do), and get a ubiquito nanostation2 and plug it in to it.Should be able to do it for under $200.
Also, consider a VDSL2compatible router because Telecom should have it rolled out by Xmas

Fritz!box 7270 will do the job nicely as well.Maybe a bit more in NZ dollars tho. Also allows pairing of phones for VOIP an does Wireless N as well/Other stuff as well which you can see on their site as well
