Whats your thoughts on this router/modem? Would be buying it for around 140NZD (90USD)
Is there anything better you could recommend in this price range?

Current networks exists of a dlink di524 and a dynalink rta1320 modem

Both are a good 3 and a bit years old now, and this modem gets very hot when in use... sometimes have to have a fan over it to keep it cool... and just recently its been messing up a lot

Any advice would be nice
Cheers

Most routers dont have a large lifespan, I've gone through 2 in the last 5 years so I'd recommend changing alright. That linksys one looks nice, and its a cisco (very reliable, I've bought a few network switches for work off them and they're still ticking after 6 years, although they were over e1000). I dont know of any others for that price that provide ADSL2 and Wireless N and look as good. You should be able to get it a bit cheaper though. There is one for sale here for 55euro about 106 NZD.
