Cheap Wireless Router

As a followup to the post on £50-100 hardware, I'm looking to get a decent wireless router for under £50 (if possible).

It needs to support wired lan too (for my PC upstairs) as well as obviously wireless (for our laptop downstairs). Also need a compatible wireless card for the laptop.

One of the biggest things I want is the ability to display line stats (SNR and attenuation) so I can really test my line (my current Efficient router doesn't support this Sad )

I've seen lots on PC World's website that seem to have the right specs, but I'd rather go on recommendation.

Almost sub-£50 but i've found my DG834G to be an excellently reliable piece of kit :

Or for a bit more with a USB Wireless dongled bundled :

Nope, I don't trust eBay too much for electronics, I can find enough bargains online elsewhere Smiley
