      Time to change router?

      Hi I have one of the original white Netgear DG834GT routers which works fine for my pc but the wireless is not great. I have just bought an ipad which when sitting near the router will work ok but not through out the house.

      I was thinking about upgrading the aerial on the router but would I be best changing my router completely and if so any suggestions what will give good wireless and work well with sky.

      Thanks alot!

      I'd change channels first and see if that helps

      Actually thinking about it would I be best in leaving my router as is but disabling the wireless and getting a wireless access point that is 802.11 n?

      You can do it that way, and doing so would mean not breaking Sky's T&Cs - worth looking into
