    Hi,

    I'm just wondering what you'd recommend for a cheap (but reliable)
    router for a Mac. (I'm running 8.6, and would rather not upgrade- as it
    would go into the ethernet port on my laptop, that's probably not an
    issue, I hope.)

    I don't need anything fancy. I'm just tired of some of the usb issues...

    I'm just wondering what you'd recommend for a cheap (but reliable)
    Any should work afaik - you usually connect to the router via an inbuilt
    web interface, so I can`t imagine that having a problem with almost any
    machine built in the last 10 years :-}

    I`ve got the (now unavailable) AR41 from ebuyer and i`ve had no problems
    at all with it, and others have had varied luck with the ASR-8400 which
    is still available £27.99+VAT (4 port) their ref: 48449

    2nd that .. I've AR11, works like a horse, 1.5 years running without
    switching it off. No idea if the Origo ASR-8400 is as reliable as the
    AR11/41 but for the mentioned price above from ebuyer.co.uk, you won't go
    wrong with it.

    Many thanks- that's what I suspected.

    Well, this will probably sound terrible, but I couldn't resist waiting,
    and went out to PC World and bought a Zoom X3. Probably not the best
    deal, I'm sure, but I'm very happy with it so far.

    I'm now scratching my head wondering why I put up with having a stinking
    USB modem for so long...

    It works like a dream, and the best thing is that no amount of USB stuff
    (from using the keyboard to printing stuff out to using my midi
    keyboard) affects the adsl performance. Fab!
