Help me pick a DSL router please?
I need to replace my router (as I'm fed up). I get periodic Airplay dropouts, streaming video services lock up, all of which are alleviated by moving closer to the router, so I just need something with more juice. My requirements are: must be a DSL router, must have a USB port for network data (not concerned about print sharing,my printer sorts it self out) needs 5 gig dual band frequency as I live in a very studenty area and I think there is some signal pollution at play, and it must be fast with good range. The USB hookup is so I can attach Hollie's time machine drive to the network and make it automatic. She never backs up and apparently its my fault when she looses her data as tech is my job... Faultless logic.
My Brother and Dad both have Airport Extremes, as lovely and bomb proof as they are I don't fancy paying out £140 (or £120 for a refurb) and still relying on the talk talk DSL modem.
I have been looking at the Netgear N600 which I have found for £107 on Amazon (bit steep), it has the USB hookup and from reviews is very fast. It has an awful lot of advanced networking features that I don't need though. I looked at the Billions (they seem to be highly recommended on here), but the DSL routers don't seem to have dual band or USB hookups. I was hoping to go to a max spend of £75-80 ish.
