I'm a new member and will state from the start that I have limited knowledge when it comes to modems and routers.

I currently have the standard thomson tg585v8 that came when I signed up to telecom.
All of my ethernet ports seem to be dead but the wireless is still working.

Because of this I am in need of a new modem/router or a easy to set up and sub $250 standalone modem and standalone router setup with good wireless capability.

My main uses for it are/will be 3 mobile devices, 1 iPad, a laptop for netflix and general surfing and a gaming pc that also uses netflix.

I also have friends over from time to time so the ability to service 3 pc's would be advantageous.

Any help would be appreciated.

Telecom may well replace it for you - might pay to contact them.

Is the telecom router any good though? Or would I better off trying to upgrade based on my requirements.

It's perfectly fine for the average user - if you're really technically minded and want to tinker, not so good, but I get the feeling this probably doesn't apply to you.

Most routers now days support what you are after.

The Thomson is a good unit for plain ADSL and general everyday usage.

Question is, what type of service are going to have in a few years/ months, if your thinking VDSL OR FIBRE, then the Thompson units isn't going to be a good fit.

I live in a small rural town so am not expecting any kind of serious upgrade outside of my current adsl anytime soon.
