Having another of my indecisive moments.
Can't decide between these two.  Although I am sure someone is going to offer other options...
Have 2 laptops, better half an iPhone and soon to be an Ipad2.
TV and blu-ray are both DLNA capable.

Replacing my telecom POS.  They are giving me a $100 credit and $60 odd for charging me for too much broadband usage so price is in the ball park for both.  Have looked at the more expensive DrayTek, but don't think I can justify the cost.

So any advice would be great.

DrayTeks are brilliant. I have a modem-only DT that works flawlessly.

Please ensure you are aware of the difference between the 2710n and 2710ne. The 'e' model is a basic, economy version without support for DLNA, VPN, QoS etc.

Didn't realise that.  
So the Netgear is  better bet?
Or do you have an alternative?

Within your budget, I think the Netgear will suit you more.
