Well well. Right on my doorstep
I use a Draytek Vigor 2800VG.
It was quite an expensive router about Ã‚Â£140 ish I believe.
It too has not been without its own set of problems though.
(tell me about a router which is perfect)
I have been through countless firmware upgrades, because I am out in a fringe area for Broadband I have had a few problems with loss of sync.
I must say though that the latest FW does seem to have helped enormously.
It has nice functions too. I use its VPN Function a lot, means I can dial in to my network using a VPN Tunnel from anywhere. So can upload music from wherever
Has 2 phone sockets and supports SIP accounts which BT actually use.
So the broadband phone service works just like the HH.
I don't use the Video services however, I suspect my router would be not be compatible for that.
What you could consider doing, would be to get yourself a wireless access point and disable wireless on your HH. That way you wouldn't affect your music devices if the router goes offline temporarily.
I use an old Netgear Router (one that has a broken modem) just as a wireless access point downstairs in my house.
