Summary: If you're looking for a cheap, all-in-one ADSL2+ modem/router, the TP-Link TD-W8950ND is probably the best you'll find. It was fast and reliable during our test period, and it also looks quite nice. However, you do need to know what you're doing when you set it up.
Pros: Good wireless performance, cheap
Cons: No keyword filtering, takes some know-how to set it up
Excerpt: TP-Link specialises in networking kit of the cheap, cheerful and surprisingly effective variety, but the low costs of its TD-W8950ND even surprised us. At just £27, it's the cheapest 802.11n router that we've ever seen. To clarify, it's only an N-Lite router, lacking the twin antennas required by the full 802.11n standard, so its theoretical maximum speed is just 150Mbit/s rather than a full 300Mbit/s.
