    I've grown tired of sky's supplied crappy wireless router so I'm looking for a new one along with a gigabit switch. All the stationary stuff, ie desktops and consoles are connected via ethernet, so 802.11n isn't required. Any reccomendations?

    Yes, and I've had no end of problems with it. Crap range for a start.

    That's the switch I have now, but when there is a lot of activity such as when using a torrent, after a while the switch jams and has to be switched off and on again. I'll try flashing the router, but I don't see how that will improve the range.
