Router Recommendations....

Does anyone out there know of a router that is compatible with the FTTC service with an integrated VDSL modem, and works with PNTV? My aim would be to be able to replace 3 items that are currently providing my Broadband/WiFi/Network at home with just one. My current setup is:
OR modem-->PN Supplied Sagem 2704n router-->SamKnows Monitoring box-->ZyXEL NBG4604 router (providing the home network and Wifi)
I have a wired home network 4 x LAN sockets around the house. The PN supplied sagem router is not gigabit and only 3 ports available (one used for the WAN [connected to OR modem]). I have disabled the WiFi on the SAGEM and use the WiFi from the ZyXEL.
My reasons are to minimise the amount of boxes constantly plugged in with associated flashing lights and contant draw of power.
The replacement needs to be Gigabit LAN with four or more ports, with the latest WiFi specs......

Re: Router Recommendations....

why go there when there is a section all bout it under plusnets iptv forum ? http://community.plus.net/forum/index.php/topic,124042.0.html
which also tells you how to set up all those various routers which work with multicast ......
actually I would look at the list in the tv thread for the best fibre routers available to replace the plusnet supplied one with .
just because your paranoid doesn't mean they aren't out to get you
