Hi there,

I need to find a good wireless DSL router. I'm aware that the Nokia MW1122 is a good'un...but this is obsolete now and I'm not sure of any other (good) brands. The person who it is for has shown up as in a 'marginal' area, although it ought to be fine, because I'm 10 doors down the street and the Nokia works fine for me.

A guy at Telecom recommended the Alcatel 510 to me, not sure if that comes in wireless?

Thanks,

Brendan

I recently went shopping for one.

Originally, the plan was to buy the Dynalink RTA300W but Ascent were out of stock so I ended up going for the D-Link DSL-604+ which was about $70 cheaper. So far it seems pretty good. Even though the noise level on my phone line is shocking, I have had minimal problems with it.

I have a Dynalink RTA300W (dsl/router/firewall/802.11b)

No problems with it at all now. Only issue I had before was UPNP was not working, but a firmware fix made that right (this is all a fair while ago). I'm a fair way from the phone exchange but by adsl never has dropped.

There are Dlink and US robotics products which offer what you want with 802.11G - I'd probably look at these first now but the Dynalink is a solid product too just behind in the wireless standard.

I'd try hunting trademe etc for the Nokia - best DSL modems I've ever dealt with.

Woosh put me onto a LinkSYs WRT 54G, and after 2 weeks I'm very pleased with it.
