    Need a new wireless ADSL router - recommendations?

    I'm looking to replace my trusty old Draytek Vigor 2600we wireless ADSL router with a faster router. Any recommendations for a fast device that has the following:

    - can be bundled with a PCI wireless card for my desktop
    - has 4 Ethernet ports (not essential)
    - has a firewall, NAT, and all the usual security features
    - has a good range with a strong signal
    - will not drop down in mixed mode environments (i.e. will serve each connected device at its full speed)
    - works with all ADSL providers
    - is easy to set up and has firmware upgradeable

    also Micro Direct are selling the WG111T's for 23 quid right now, they are usually 35-40 quid

    I have a D-link dsl-604. It's a good router and was bundled with a usb adaptor, only problem with it, is that its not very user friendly.

    Would do if it was a bit cheaper. My current 2600We has never had to be reset and I do like the Vigors: they run cool and are very stable but cost a lot.

    Had a Vigor 2200USB originally and that was pretty good.

    Since retiring that and going wireless I've tried Linksys, D-Link and Netgear and none of them as good as the Vigor.

    Think I will have to put a 2600G on my shopping list.
