    My Belkin N Wireless Modem Router has just died - no signs of life. I can't check the fuse cos the plug is a sealed unit. Any ideas? Failing a fix - I will have to buy a new one - but with standards changing all the time, I don't know which spec to buy. Is NN+ the most current wireless standard and what transfer speed should I look for? Any recommendations for a fast stabel router? TIA

  3. It's a sign! Don't buy Belkin...... (sorry, their disconnect issues on http://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B001IL7OWW annoyed me to death). I'd go Linksys but others will vouch for Netgear. Much of a muchness, really, just find out a friend is happy with and buy that.....

    I can thoroughly recommend the Billion BiPAC 7800N - it has excellent wireless range, does gigabit wired, dual-channel 802.11n, ADSL2+, you can also use it with cable, FTTP and FTTC, it supports jumbo frames and IPv6, and it's easy to configure port forwarding so that you can access your NAS across the internet. Also, when I swapped from my previous Belkin router to the Billion, the speed of my broadband connection nearly doubled.
