Technicolor 582n vs Netgear dgn1000

Hi all,
I switched to Plusnet about 2/3 weeks ago. I've been using my netgear dgn1000 router but suffer unlimited amounts of wireless drop outs. Wired connections are fine, and from googling the router, it is apparent it is a common problem with that router.
I'm therefore thinking of getting plusnet to send me one of their own Technicolor routers, and its my understanding that i'll be sent the 582n model.Can anyone give me some advice as to whether its worth paying the £9.99 for this router, or go out and buy a better one?What is the wireless stability like on the 582n?Anything else I should be aware of problem wise?Any info you can provide would be much appreciated.
Cheers
Luke

Some people seem to experience poor wifi performance from the 582n, there's a recent thread and an [url=http://community.plus.net/forum/index.php/topic,110884.0.html]earlier one with some discussion about it.

You will be MUCH better off getting a 2nd hand HH2 or HH3 unit from freecycle or ebay.
