Any future router is likely to be one of the technicolor routers from this selection: http://medialibrary.technicolor.com/c/333/p/90201028d9d0e2ec58c08dea141393f4/Publications-xDSL-Resid...

Have to agree on the TG582n opinion. I've given up with it. Fed up of it dropping connections; the wireless range is dreadful and I've had no end of trouble connecting devices.
Going back to a Netgear, just been out and bought one.

Mine is just perfect fine. Mine is Netgear DGND3700v2 and got the best wireless for both 2.4GHz and 5.0GHz and was very stable.

I would prefer to have a choice between a simple standard router or pay extra for a decent dual band router with good wireless range and multicast option.

Re: will plusnet bring out new router for fibre?

a good quality router with inbuilt VDSL with a better wireless would be around £100 would be good. But I pay my own router from pcworld with special offer £89.99 saving me £50 off.
