I wear a lot of hats...

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Was considering DGN2200 NEtgear - but tried and they are just OK / Average - this review agrees

Then there is the fancy looking Linksys and it gets compared as similar to the above.

I've been through about every ADSL router that Linksys had over the past 12 years.  They have gotten progressively better over time.  At the last upgrade I went to an AT&T / Westell / Netgear 7550 and it is the best of the lot.

There are custom versions for AT&T, Frontier and Century.  If you're not on one of these ISPs, it appears to me that it can be used on any ISP.  The normal PPPoE configuration menus are there, they are just default to the AT&T settings if not changed.

They sell for $15 to $25 on ebay, which fits my definition of a reasonable price.

I switched from Linksys to Netgear at the last update minus one.  That router was a Netgear DG834 and I used it up until replacing it with the 7550.  There are several versions of it, several models, and there was one specifically for the UK.  If you decide to go with a DG834, get the most recent version, which if I remember right was version 7.

The receiver in the Netgear DG834 was markedly better than the earlier Linksys models so I would not go with one of the older Linksys units.
