    As title, looking for recommendations for a 4 port router with inbuilt ADSL modem. I've read the reviews but am more interested in real world experiences....

    I've got a Netgear DG824G wireless. Very nice, very small and holds a good connection. The reviews on amazon and my friends swayed me. Best one i've seen.

    me to if ^ means DG834g. It's excellent (54mbps) but you will need to upgrade to latest firmaware as there have been a lot of issues with it dropping connection (fixed with latest f/ware).

    You could also go for DG834gt which will gve you 108mbps if you want to swap files between computers.

    wouldn't touch the `pre-n' stuff if i was you tho.

    I'd stick with the Linksys AG041 ADSL 4 Port Modem Router, works very well and should be just the job.

    yeah sorry DID mean the 834. Mine is a v2 and haven't upgraded the
    firmware and it's held it's line for the past week no problems. Something
    i understand the other makes have trouble doing. :D

    crocodile, if you don't want wireless go for the DG834. From the reviews the
    netgear doesn't do so well at file sharing/swapping speeds. Might be worth
    looking at the linksys then. *still would go for netgear :devil: *
