My internet provided is starting to charge for a monthly modem rental. What would be a good DSL modem to purchase? I would like a modem that is a wireless router also. At times have several devices that connect to the internet. Any good choices out there?

Best is probably a little subjective :)

There are routers that are low on features but high on throughput and vice-versa, cheap/expensive etc.

My own personal preference would be a Cisco RV series SOHO router. Good performance and features that won't break the bank.

My System


I would suggest getting both pieces seperately. IE: a modem and a router, not a combo unit.

For the modem, check with your ISP. They will have a list of supported models. In most cases, you can't simply use whatever you want. If it's not supported, it won't work.
