Swapping Router

Hi all
Fairly new to Plusnet, so hello to everyone!
I'm currently using the supplied Plusnet Technicolour TG582N router for my broadband and wifi, and I've got to be honest, it works great. However, towards the end of my BT ADSL contract I purchased a TP Link N600 TD-W8980 ADSL router to try and fix my BT wifi issues (which I don't have any more with Plusnet).
Is it worth swapping routers, and am I likely to get any noticeable improvement in my download speeds, or improvement in wifi strength and  range?
Also, what are the logon details for my Plusnet account to enter into the TP Link router?
Thanks in advance!

First question - suck it and see as it will all depend on your local circumstances

Hi and welcome Plusnet and the forums.
It's personal preference on your router, I can't say whether you'll get an improvement on either on though.
Your Plusnet logon name on the router will be your username @plusdsl.net .

Wow, thanks for the quick replies!
With respect to Plusnet and NAT settings (for Xbox) could you possibly signpost me to information on that?
