I need a DSL modem

Fri Apr 23, 2010 6:02 pm

I'm moving to a new house and getting AT&T DSL service. They said they would sell me a DSL modem for 150 dollars or I could just go and buy one. I would like to get a nice one with wi-fi but I'm kind of having a hard time muddling through Google for reviews and what not. I've always had the phone company provide one but I think it would be nice to shop for certain features, reliability, and GUI interface. If someone could lead me in the right direction it would be appreciated.

Wow, I'm shocked they are charging you for one. Verizon said I didn't have to pay for mine unless I terminated service early. That was 2003, so I'm good.

On that note, it's a Westel DSL modem, and has been on almost all day every day for 7 years and still going strong.
