      Router recommendation

      Hi,

      Finding my Sky router needs power off and on quite often due to the wireless failing. Also finding the wireless performance not very good.

      Can people recomend a router etc? I'm considering draytek and I think I have a Cisco 837 in the loft.

      Connection is so so, 20/6

      So looking at having an overall anyway with the way devices connect etc.

      Any homeplug recommendations or are people going to scoff and say cat 5e...

      Mike

      I like the sound of that, I'll look into ordering one this week and then next month get round to sorting out the home plug aspect etc. However if the wifi is as good as indicated, is it time to go back to wifi... although the only n device I'll have is an iphone 5.
