    I have had enough of the O2 router. There helpline could do nothing but change SNR. I am sick of all the router disconnections.

    Has anyone any experience of using a different router with O2's LLU broadband? How easy is it to set up another router for O2?

    Cheers

    very easy, DG834GT plays nicely and is cheap.

    Thanks for the reply. I thought I had read that the 834GT was no good for ADSL2 Plus. If it is ok for O2 how easy and where would I find configuration info?
