Wireless router reviews you can trust

We lab test wireless routers from the biggest brands - including Netgear, Linksys, BT, Sky and Virgin Media - to reveal the best models for stress-free set-up of a secure wireless home network. Free routers are considered slower than high street models, but our tests reveal that in some cases you're better off sticking with the model provided with your broadband package.
