I have had a Netgear DG834G v3 for a number of years now. It may not be as reliable as it once was and I am thinking of changing it. Can anyone recommend a similar, easy to use, uncomplicated router that could take its place. It is used with cable to my desktop and a laptop and net book access it wirelessly. I do not want a top of range one, just one that will work well and not expensive. Thanks.

I have a Belkin SURF N300 Wireless N Router. See Google for specs. About £50. I am sure ther are others but I find it quite good. I have it cabled to desktop and a broadband phone "black box" and wireless to a laptop and iPod touches. Good strong wireless through thick walls of a biggish house.

I've got a Zyxel NBG-419N, cost around £40 from Amazon

When I bought it it wouldn't connect to Talk Talk, but a quick call to Zyxel tech support quickly identified the problem and they emailed a firmware fix that sorted it out - very good service and a very reliable product.

I now have a Zyxel router, gigabit switch and wireless range extender...

Thanks. Thought I might have had lots of recommendations but will tick as resolved and sort something out myself.

My standby Netgear router just died a quick death so looking for a cheap one as backup to my D-Link. Will be going for this one, http://www.novatech.co.uk/products/networking/wirelessnetworking/wirelessrouters/adslroutersbtline/td-w300kit.html
