Thanks chaps, I had been looking at the Linux based routers but at $300 I passed up the idea. I've had both Netgear and Linksys in the past and they have been rubbish, but this was a good few years back so maybe the bugs are ironed out??
My current router is an O2 box and has been faultless but the options you can configure on it are none existant. I read about the Draytek but cant remember what I read now
At least I know I can do it with QoS now, thanks. I'm not good with networking and trying to learn.
