Firstly - what is a great brand people use for ADSL - I seem to have endless troubles with them.

My latest is a Belkin, which seems to have trouble allowing wireless N devices on until a reboot is performed (of the modem).

Should I get a simpler ADSL2+ only modem and hook it up to a quality wireless router?

You're right. Get the modem and router separately. If you get one of these routers, you can upgrade the firmware to DD-WRT.

I ended up with a LinkSys ADSL modem, and bought an airport extreme from apple which does all the routing. Everything seems so much smoother, thanks for advice. – Michael Neale Feb 8 '10 at 22:15
