Best ADSL Modem

timtec, Sep 29, 7:04pm
Hi There

Our internet modem, a Vodafone Huawei HG556a has now died twice, and vodafone have agreed to give us back the cost of the modem to buy a new (hopefully) better one with. Does anyone have any recommendations! All I need is an ADSL(2) modem, no wireless or anything needed. I would like it to work all of the time, and not need restarting. :)

In my personal experience, stay away from linksys and D-Link has been very very reliable. That is for myself and on numerous occasions. Having said that, there are others who would have a completely opposite experience (just from the couple of threads that I can think of here) so hard to say.

I think someone was saying that tplink was really good on here.

Yeah get on trademe and pick up one of the telecom single port ones, should be able to get one for less than $20, just make sure its got ADSL2+ on the box coz exchanges are being upgraded around the country (without notice i might add) and older modems are suddenly ceasing to work.

Thanks for that. Does anyone know of one that I could get for under $150 that is above home/consumer grade! Thanks :)

Bought a TP-Link a few weeks ago and it's fantastic. It's even dropped price since I bought it. It doesn't matter if you don't need the wifi, you can just disable it.!partid=12370

$89 and free shipping. Was recommended to me by another MB user.
