I replaced both my HH3 and Modem with the Draytek 2750N 2 minutes after the BT Engineer left, so its looking good, and I have not had a dropped connection once. 

Check out this thread for line stats.

Quoted from toekneem :"Trouble is , some of them are getting like mobile phones, they do and show everything, but when it comes to making calls you find the battery is flat:smileyvery-happy:"

 

Good point toekneem,but the Belkin N1 takes it`s power from the mains adapter that comes with it and the LCD display gets its info from the PC etc,and the clock is updated from the net.

So if you lose connection to the internet then the clock screen reads "No Internet Connection".

I agree that with a battery operated phone or device it would be a pain,but no battery to go flat.:)

The main screen [first screen on the menu] shows a globe [internet WAN]/box icon [Modem]/box icon [The router]/Small PC and montor icon [Your LAN network]/wireless icon for wireless devices,and if any of them are getting probs they flash and also give advice on how to cure the fault.Robot Happy

I've been using the Belkin Play Max since April without one problem. Good wireless range too.

The only thing i probably miss is the Stats, and to get any kind of info it looks it looks like you have to go the Draytek VDSL2 modem way.

Re: Suggestions for a Wireless Router to replace my HH3

Thanks for all the info. I ended up buying a Netgear WNDR 3700. I am really pleased with it because it sorted out the main problem I had with WIFI on the HH3 which was not being able to connect my Blackberry Bold 9780 to the home hub. It was frustrating talking to the advisers on the phone getting different information from the three I spoke to. It seems that there are a lot of people who cannot connect to their HH3 with a Blackberry.

 

The new router is fast my Blackberry connects to it instantly although I think the router management interface could be a tad quicker but hey ho you cant have everything.
