OK thinking of upgrading from cheapo router to either:

This is for ADSL2 use, can't get VDSL or fibre here yet.

Any one recommend one above the other, we can have quite a few wireless clients at one time in our house, currently have downstairs the free Netcomm NB604N from TrustPower who we just signed up with to save on internet.  Also have a TPLink TD-W8950ND for wireless use upstairs, but often needs restarting.  Thinking I would set the new one as the modem & the TrustPower one as just an AP.  It's wireless seems pretty fine to me so far.


ps:  I've found twice with NetComm routers, I think, (with this ISP and with my previous one) that if I try and upload to say SmugMug it locks up after jsut one or two small say 1MB photos, totally unusable.   Is there a setting I could try that would stop this happening, thinking must be a NAT thing or something to do with the ISP?  This is partly why I want to try another solution.

I vote for the ASUS - I've been using one for two years with no problems.
Excellent user interface.
Good wireless performance.
