      Re: Need a new router

      can you tell me what is rthe best for my line
      If you have the old white router you will still be on PPPoA which means you can swap routers without to much problems. Have a look here for instructions on how to find the best router for your line.
      What non-Sky router will give me the best speed.

      Re: Need a new router

      The routers shown in Exdee'x thread are ADSL2+ modem routers, The 7800N is a lot more expensive, I think you are paying for the dual band and gigabit, whether it is worth it or not, I don't really know,

      and the much cheaper, 7700N

      Exdee can probably keep you right on this.

      I think it's only the 7800 that's 89.99 as it's got no wireless. The 7800N is around 120.
