I've got through countless router upgrades over the last 10 years. Last time I spent some extra cash and got myself a Billion 7800N which has been really good.

As I've not got cable I'm only using this in bridge mode acting as a wireless router and gigabit switch.

I've recently moved house and notice that I'm not getting enough range out of it - I figured its several years old now and wireless tech has moved on an awful lot in that time. If I was looking at upgrading it what would be decent equivalents?

One of the new AirPort Extremes or an ASUS AC grade router.

Check the reviews at the site Smallnetbuilder for thorough router reviews. Here is a link that will show you their reviews sorted by best wireless range. The ASUS at the top of that list is pretty popular.
