New router.

I've been with TalkTalk for a couple of years and I'm pretty sick of the 'free' router, a D-Link something or other. Can I simply buy my own router and plug it in? 

 

If it's as easy as that, can someone recommend a good , fast router?

 

Thanks

RE: New router.

And of those,I'd go for the DGN 2000- wireless coverage is better than the 834G( I  have used both - not on talktalk but generally speaking )

Edit- but you will need to do some config however as long as you have your primary account user name and password, the wizard should do it all for you.

RE: New router.

I've just installed (about an hour ago!) a Linksys E4200 router onto my Virgin Superhub, as I got fed up with the flaky, slow wireless connection.  I'm now getting 42Mbps through a solid concrete floor.  Recommended.

You have had no issues with the airport extreme??  Always liked the look of this but read less than favourable reports...
