Personally I've seen quite a few Belkins fail after a short time, not necessarily that model. Wouldn't really recommend them all the same.

+1 to not getting a Belkin, rather get one of THESE (http://www.dicksmith.co.nz/product/XH9929/).

The Linksys aren't to bad, not had much trouble from customers who use them. For a while now I have been using the Netgear range, they seem to work OK, I did use Netcomms, but started last year seeing way to many failures are 3-4 months of usage.

After some research I found Modem router option was recommended by most people for flexibility and reliability.
What does everyone think about Dratek Vigor 120 and TP-Link TL-WR1043ND

I'll echo Wainuitechs sentiments about Belkins failing after a wee while. Not had much better luck with those Linksys models either. Linksys are great at JUST wifi models or JUST dsl models but can't seem to put the two together well enough.

The DV-120 is nothing short of amazing, top of the line reliability, and the PPPoA -> PPPoE bridging is superb. Run it to a device running Gargoyle or Tomato.

If those Linksys are the same model that Gargoyle recommends just ensure its not the v2.4 model which is currently unsupported. Otherwise they have a great amount of memory, solid all around performer and priced very competitively! :-)
