    So, my Netgear DG834Gv3 was playing up and kept dropping the connection to all devices. Decided to get a new router, the DGN1000 was well reviewed on ebuyer.com so I got myself one of those. After setting it up and connecting my laptop to it via wireless the connection was fine; could browse...
