    Hi folks am currently running a netgear router on my adsl line, its an old router with no wireless, however after ungrading it to the latest verison firmwire to have upnp it keeps dropping connection, and even before this i never got a good download speed even tho all ports opened! So i wanted to get a new wireless router (wireless for my psp to go on net).

    Anyway i was debating between two or there - was wondering if anyone had any advice?

    Option 1 - netgear range max

    Option 2 - 3com http://www.broadbandbuyer.co.uk/Shop/ShopDetail.asp?ProductID=3476

    Was looking at 3com cause i heard they are good etc, tho read a few bad reviews especially one on the newer model that supports 108mps wirelss - well so they said on trusted reviews - they gave the 3com with 108mps speed a 3/10 and 9/10 for range max, but am reluckant to go to netgear because of the trouble i had with this one.

    Any advice or sugesstions would be great

    I use Negear as a standard install for all remote clients. The DG834G is easy to set up and reliable.
