Long distance to the exchange

My exchange is some 5 or 6 kilometers from home and my connection with broadband (512) although tolerable (after B.T replaced my main socket) would, I am told, improve with a router or wireless modem router Can anyone suggest which would be best for the job. Thank you

Long distance to the exchange

i upgraded to netgear 834g from dynamode usb modem following advice here. My sync improved from 3500 to 5500-6000 with a good increase in down speed.
Although closer to the exchange at 2km but not particularly good line quality
i've been impressed up to now, easy to set up and very intuitive

Netgear DG834Gv3 is now out and a great bit of kit. Shouldn't go wrong with one of those. It's an all in one box that should meet your needs comfortably.
