I'm sure this is a question which has been asked many times before, Which router out of the 3, Is Best for both wireless range and reliability overall. At the current house i am living at i'm using the white DG834GT router which seems to be working fine not so good at times.
I was just curious to see if the black netgear v2 router or the sagem was actually better than the current white router?
I have also used the black router before elsewhere and seemed to find the wireless signal stupidly low and it disconnected often im no sure if this was faulty etc.
So which router would you guys say is best out of the 3 routers including sagem.

Re: Which Router?
Thanks for the reply, I am currently using the white router where the signal is meh its ok. It fluctuates between 2 and 4 bars but i only recieve a connection of 2 or 4 meg when in use upstairs as i live in a big ish house, I'm currently using a Linksys WRT45G with DD-WRT firmware to act as a wireless switch which gives me full bar signal and my maximum speed of 14 - 16 meg.
Different channels doesn't effect the outcome.
I was just curious if i would benefit more by upgrading to one of the two black boxes for reliability and possibly signal strength which isnt really a big worry at the moment as my DD-Wrt is doing well.

Re: Which Router?
Cant see you getting anything better than you have now with that Linksys,
here is a test I did though of all the Sky routers if you wish to see differences
Coming Soon: Best Router For Sky BB
If your using that Linksys as a access point you could always move it closer to where you need coverage and join it to the Sky router ether with a longer Ethernet cable or even some home-plugs.
