Wireless N Router with Broadcom

I've been advised to try a modem/router with a Broadcom ADSL chipset due to the length of my line.
I've been browsing some of the manufacturer's websites but the chipset never seems to be mentioned. I got a D-link 2740R but have sent it back to the supplier because of frequent dropped connections.
Any ideas?

Look on ebay for a Voyager 2110. It's discontinued but a very good router and there are always a few around for sale. It has a Broadcom BCM6348 v0.7 chip.

The Voyager isn't wireless N.

@adiewoo - thanks for that. They seem proud that it has a Broadcom chipset!
I'll give that one a go.

Just a thought - can the aerials be upgraded to higher gain ones?
