I'm looking for a wireless ADSL router to network my desktop and laptop, both running XP. The Netgear DG834G has been recommended, but reading various reviews I'm not so sure.
Can anybody recommend a suitable router that is both simple to install, reliable and secure?

I've got the Netgear DG834PN and had no probs...very easy to set up, works with a laptop and 2 comps. although if you can get a faster one it would be better..
I use the DG834G v2, it works great for the computer, laptop, Ipaq, N95 and Xbox using cable. I live in the middle of knowhere so haven't set any security so can't help their, yeah i know i will do it.
Well I should imagine a fair few on here are using the netgear including me. Had it about 3 years and never a problem, does what it says on the box and pretty cheap.
I have the DG834GT, have used it for a couple of years with zero problems. The built in firewall works well, it is easy to set up and copes well with my 8mb connection and the thick walls of this house.

Jammy sod. I'm stuck with 1MB, my neighbour lives 4000 yards from me gets 2MB. It's not fare.................. ;-(
I bought Zyxel here, cheap and cheerful.
We're less than a ½ mile from the Exchange.

Ditto; I have 3 PC's and 2 laptops all networked through it and it's fine.
No, they're not all mine - kids and the missus.
When did you find out that not all your kids were yours Kris?
I think one is negro...you'd have thought he'd work it out for himself...
I had a D Link G604T which was good when finally set up right.
I have now got a Netgear Rangemax which I found easier to configure securely.
I have the netgear, easy to set up, easlity configurable security and once set up it just sits there and does it's job, no connection dropping, crashing etc.. Faultless, working with 2 desktop PC's , 2 laptops and a PDA.
Also I added a netgear wireless print server enabling both of my printers to be available to any device on the network at any time without the need for the main PC to be on as the printers plug into the router.
I have a D-Link , no problems at all and secured nicely.
WOW! - fantastic response, many thanks to all. Looks like the Netgear then
