    I'm looking to change my router/modem (currently a Netgear DG834N) seems to have developed an intermittent connection with the internet.
    So, can anybody recommend an ADSL wireless router please?

    Don't assume the problem is with the router - we had experienced dropouts on a daily basis (or more) for which we had to restart the router and, like you, we assumed that the problem was with the router itself. However, after 6 months of this we totally lost our Broadband service. After having a Pipex engineer come round and test the system he then pinned it down as a problem with the line from the exchange, and raised the call with BT.

    A couple of days later a BT engineer came around and sorted the problem with the line and since then we've not had a single dropped connection.

    On the strength of this, I'd suggest you see if you can borrow another router as it may be that the dropped connection problem is with the line rather than with your existing kit.

    On the other hand, I'm not sure what sort of response you will get if it's only an intermittent problem. It's hard to get anyone to accept they exist.
