Netgear Rangemax Next ADSL2+ Modem Wireless Router DG834N
Advantages: Looks minimal, easy to use, fast
Disadvantages: Needs other N adapters to take full advantage
I purchased this modem to upgrade from the one supplied by the Internet service provider and I was not disappointed. The DG834N was one of the first modems capable of the N (draft) speed. To take full advantage of this you should invest in a wireless N adapter for your other devices. However, even if you do not buy a N adapter you will still notice an increase in sharing over a network. I noticed that the sharing media with my PS3 was much quicker with videos buffering almost instantly.
The modem is quite minimal in design. The aerial is concealed within the casing itself. The status lights on the front are simple and give the unit a clean look. There are four ethernet ports at the back which are easy to access. I didn't have any trouble with having to reset the modem and I left it running pretty much constantly. Installation and changing the settings on the modem is really simple. I managed to pick the modem up in a bundle with the N adapter at a pretty reasonable price but you will have to shop around.
Summary: A brilliant modem
