Apple, Belkin, Trendnet Make Most Reliable Routers
Posted 07 January 2009 - 02:14 AM
Typical issues are:
Inconsistent wireless and ethernet connections.
Power supplies that have a high incident of failure.
Inability to train on a DSL signal when routers of lesser features are easily able to. "Can we say Speedstream"?
A %#@&$% to configure for simple home or business solutions.
And the last is undertrained agents, many of whom who know nothing of 2Wire's capabilities or an understanding of simple networking that are allowed to troubleshoot customer issues. If they can't figure out what the problem is, then its your computer and not their lack of knowledge.

Also, I now have Embarq, and they just replaced their 2Wire line because of similar problems.
So, give me a break!

That will work, but I had trouble with the modem and router parts. I probably had more problems with the modem than the router as my home network was more stable than the Internet connection, but I had problems with both, and they would often fail in unison.
I tried other modems and modem-router combos. I even talked to their super-high level tech support that you can only get in contact with via AT&T HQ. Nothing would work for me, but that was in Nashville. It may depend on the location if you can use a different modem, not router. This was also a couple of years ago, and requirements may have changed.
