    Replacing my desktop with a laptop and i'm looking to get a wireless ADSL router to replace my ADSL USB modem.

    What can you recommend I look at getting?

    Budget is ~£100 and i may want to add a hard drive to the router for wireless backups at a later stage (if it has any bearing on what to buy!).
    I've been looking at the Linksys WAG54GX2 Wireless-G ADSL 2/2+ Gateway with SRX200 but i'm wondering if a MIMO router would be overkill?

    I've just bought a Netgear DG834PN and I love it. It was easy to set-up, took me less than 2 minutes from turning my PC back on to getting online.

    I was looking for an old thread I posted in and have just updated the thread with info and more questions. Whilst looking for it I saw this thread and although it is a few weeks old I thought I might as well post here and see if you've already gotten something or not.

    If you haven't then I think the DG834PN will do what you need it to do.

    Cheers...i'd forgotten about this thread!!
    I've now got a 3COM Officeconnect (3CRWDR100A-72) 11g wireless router from a mate for £30, it hadnt even been used as he ended up getting cable and not ADSL.
