which router?

Hi chaps, I just wondered if anybody could recommend a reliable router, as I assume the plusnet supplied is of the 'g' kind...?
All of my equipment has n rated wireless, I have 2 laptops, a desk top, xbox, HTC desireHd, freesatHD recorder (ethernet) and a printer.  All connected wireless except the freesat.

I take it you have a BT Home hub, not all are locked, you might be able to change the settings to PN ones., what version number is it?
my requirements are not as harse as yours and I use a PN Thompson one, cheap and cheerful

I didn't realise its not locked, ill have to look into changing the settings, its a great peace of equipment so if I can keep it ill be happy.

My HH3 works much better than the HH2 on +net. I used to get disconnected at least once every 24 hours with the HH2, but the HH3 has stayed up for around a week at a time before losing connection. The HH2 (version 2.0b) used to reboot itself at random whenever I accessed the router stats page.

Apparently there was a whole batch of dodgy hh2, I had the same problem before I was given a hh3.
What settings do I need to use the hh3 on pn... is it the settings on the welcome email?

Yes. Just go to http://192.168.1.254/ in your browser of choice, click on "Settings" and then click on "Enter your Broadband username and password (for non-BT Total Broadband customers)".
