    You'll need to state the devices that you are connecting to it, what you want to spend, main usages, your iSP etc.

    In any event, as usual, I really recommend making a thread on Whirlpool outlining the above (in the Modem section), and you'll have 10 knowledgable replies within an hour. People there live for that sort of question.

    If you just scan the threads there, you might not even have to make your own post.

    I had a D-Link and it wasn't very good. It only lasted a year before it started to drop out and speed seemed to slow down.

    I've had a Netgear N600 "upright" modem/router for the last year or so and it seems to work very well. Fast, extremely easy to set up, no hassles or issues with operation.

    I have all of the same things you've described Michael, but no one at work is giving me shit. I think just own it more/give less fucks and all will be G.

    haha this is very timely, I literally just did research on this and am going to buy this afternoon

    The 2 I'm tossing up are

    http://www.msy.com.au/nsw/ultimo/pe...wireless-n300-modem-router-with-usb-port.html

    http://www.msy.com.au/nsw/ultimo/pe...ireless-n300-adsl2-modem-router-usb-port.html


    They're relatively cheap, both have N300 (wireless 300mbps) and can share a USB drive or printer amongst the network

    If you want faster wifi, this one from kogan can do up to 867mbps (so 3x quicker than N300 ones) but its double the price

    http://www.kogan.com/au/buy/wireless-ac-router/

    Hope that helps!

    The Kogan one you linked is a Router only.

    If you need decent QoS (e.g. Prioritising browsing and video streaming over torrents), or good wifi speed and range etc then generally you are better off getting a separate Router to add to a standalone Modem, since the inbuilt routing/wifi function on most all in one Modem/Routers is pretty crap.

    If your needs are more basic, than an all in one like the 7800N etc will generally suffice.

    I'd generally recommend getting a separate modem and router though if you can be bothered with the set up. It's not that much more expensive than an all in one generally, and the functionally is better.

    You should also look into if/when you'll be getting the NBN, as this will influence your choice, both in terms of the Modem you'll need and how you'll use the internet (e.g. Suddenly HD online streaming services become an option, like Netflix).

    ernesto - I've never had much of a problem with modems. I've still got the first one I ever had ( launches into long boring story about dial up and 14.4k and Trumpet Winsock , and Tasmania and entering strings into modems etc )
    I now have a new Netcomm and its fine. I also have my old Netgear DGN 2000 which was also fine- I can lend it to you - for a loooong lend - if you want to try it out.

    There's nothing else for it I'm afraid. You now have to go postal.

    I've lost a pair of shoes.
    Or more correctly I can't find them.
    I've already rung one cobbler to see if I might have taken them in for Topy.

    Last time I think I had them on I was saying good bye to foxy after a medium night out.

    Sounds like good advice.

    ASUS RT-N66U, it's only a router though, if you've got an NBN connection, then you don't need a modem.

    my old ass runners finally fell apart on the weekend. looking at this thread, nike has some pretty good options.

    I have a pair of these flyknit frees which are awesome for running but after purchasing them them i realised they werent good for other sports as they dont have any lateral support
