You can use any router you like.
I also prefer the Netgear - in my case the DG834G v4

dats 2 vote's for the netgear dg834 v4. all depends what u need from your router. some will handle some things better than others but i find the dg834g's to be good all rounders

I am not too familiar with Charmouth as I live in East Dorset but I agree it is beautiful
