I'm looking for your recommendations regarding the purchase of a wireless router. I am located in the UK and my ISP is O2.
My requirements for the router:-
- ADSL2 Support
- Wireless N
- DD-WRT Compatible
- Good Wireless Coverage
- USB Port
- Around £50-£60 but i'm flexible for the right device (Tell me if i'm being stupid)
I have played with a Buffalo WHR-G300N at work which I liked, and i'm currently using it as a hotspot, but obviously it is only a router so doesn't fit my specification.
If you can't specify a particular router can you recommend a chipset I should be looking for etc?
Your ISP should supply a simple modem without a router function. If they can't do that, just buy one. If your ISP provided a router with their service, check if you can set it in bridge mode. Some ADSL routers can be bridged, for example Thomson SpeedTouch.
You can also sign up to your ISPs forum and ask specifik questions regarding this issue.
