Routers... Would it make a significant difference buying a router other than using the one given by the ISP,namely SKY?

What sort of difference would it make buying a top end router rather than using the one that SKY has supplied with my b/band package? Obviously we all want the fastest speed for d/loads etc. So how good can routers be?

If stock routers will limit on what I am actually able to get with one that costs £ss,no problem... But on my usage would it benefit me?

you wont gain any better speed just performance from the new router (and be carefull cause stuff like dd-wrt (custom firmware) don't support the setting that sky users).

sky sux they along with virgin have both said they might be adding custom dns options at a later stage but none of them actually made the move yet.

My post about sky junk

edit

for got to mention asus and buffalo want to be your first choice with routers (learnt from a few members here at nsane)
