Windows 7: Help me solve my broadband issue

Help me solve my broadband issue

My current router provided by ISP, Virgin Media is terrible. It is known as the SuperHub and is a modem & router in one.

My issue is the router has poor wireless speed and signal. The signal is so bad that I can't get signal in my house.

How can I solve this?

I know I can put the Superhub into modem mode and buy a router myself.

What router do you recommend?

How about home-plugs?

If you have any other ideas then please say.

Things I have tried:
ASUS RT-N66U router, terrible router and I have requested a refund. I believe it was faulty
Changed wireless settings following InSSIDer and advice via Google
Bought wireless dual usb adapters for computers + laptop
Updated firmware & wireless drivers
Contacted ISP to troubleshoot any potential issues, they said it is fine on their end

Budget for this project is 120, no hardware is needed for laptops/computer so the budget is for router/home-plugs/other ideas

I live in the UK and I'm on Virgin Media's 60Mb internet service.

Please provide links where possible to any ideas you have.
