Any Advice on buying a Router?

I've recently been upgraded from a BT Homehub 2 to a HH 4, and I now find that my WiFi bridges for my Skybox and streamer don't work, which is not unknown I understand.

I was going to buy some compatible bridges, but it occurs to me that a new router is probably the cheaper answer. I have always used the (free!) router from my provider in the past so any tips, or pitfalls to avoid, on what to look for?

I have tried several brands. The latest and best is a Netgear DGND4000 (over a year old so may be superseded), but I recommend the brand. Linksys OK but did not last long. Belkin not very good.

You can have a try with TPlink router. They are cheap, but lasts for long. I am using one for last six months and it is working perfectly.

Do you have children using internet? In that case you can use this one.

Thanks, David

Thanks both.

At the moment I have bethought me of the most logical and cheapest option - I've re-connected my HomeHob2. There was nothing wrong with it (maybe the security is older) they simply upgraded me when I renewed my contract.

Everything seems back to as it was!
