Which Wireless Router?

I've just joined plusnet and am looking to buy a wireless router so that two laptops in our family can access the web at the same time, one uses 802.11b the other 802.11g. Can anyone recommend a well performing and reliable router to fit the bill?

Thanks

Hi,

I would very strongly recommend a Netgear DG834G. Quality, price and performance are all superb features of this router. It is a gift to set up and coverage through walls is superb.

For an independent and comprehensive review, see here.

I was thinking of buying a Netgear DG834GT, but I have seen from some web comments that the Netgear DG834G is actually more reliable, do you know whether this is correct?

Hi

Yes, there is some evidence that the G is more reliable and has a better transmission output than the GT. Unless you need to transfer a lot of data across your local network very quickly and often, I would stick with the G.

Had my DG834G since last Christmas, £45 on offer a PC World Cheesy . Haven't had any problems with it and the reception through walls is very good. Can be tempermental when it is very humid, but I think any Wi-fi network would be.

Thanks everyone, I ordered the DG834G and installed it within 10 mins - a real breeze. Flashed the firmware to the latest version, it works a treat and seems to get a good signal all over my house.

And I'll second that. My DG834G is one of the best pieces of kit I've ever bought.
