Netgear DG814 no longer available, alternative?

Hi,

I'm after a new ADLS modem/router/switch like my old 814 for my dad, but notice that the router is no longer stocked. I was going to buy the new DG834 but have heard peopple say it has problems with FTP uploading. Anyone any suggestions as to the best modem/router.

Cheers in advance.

The recent DG834 firmware upgrade 1.03.00 has supposidly solved the FTP issues (the latest firmware is 1.04.00) and I would still recomend it anyway as it's a very good and capable replacement for the DG814 with a proper firewall capability.

Note: updated firmware exists for the DG814 - v4.10 with improved P2P handling.

The DG814 is still available from www.ebuyer.co.uk, but seeing as the DG834 is better and cheaper I would go for that instead anyway!!

FTP uploads work fine with DG834 firmware 1.03.00.

I think the DG834 is excellent and it's only £58.42 + VAT at www.broadbandbuyer.co.uk

I would agree, the DG834 is a good unit.
If your looking for an alternative then the
Zyxel P650-E1 and the larger P650H -31 are both
good routers the larger unit has VPN compatability
and can be turned into a wireless unit by adding a
PMCIA card.
