Alternative to Thomson TG585v8

Hi
After two weeks of attempting to get the router working with wireless laptops, I give up  Sad
Does anybody have any suggestions for an alternative router I could use. Ideally something that's easy to set up and works!
Thanks,
Mark.

Go for a Netgear router everytime.
But have you tried changing the security on your WIFI?
Temporary switch off the WIFI security on the router and see i you can connect.
I resolved the issue by changing the WIFI security from WEP to WPA-PSK.
I have not tried the resolution on the Thompson router but it may be worth a shot.

Hi duggiem700,
Have you tried upgrading the firmware to version 8.2.7.8? Links and info on how to do it can be found here.
