Retire the SpeedStream and Get Westell 6100 or ??

Just wondering if there is any benefit in doing so as I've had my current DSL modem is probably 4 or 5 years old. I would be surprised if a new device didn't improve anything at all.

I was also considering getting a DLink or some other DSL Modem/ router / switch combo. As it sits right now I have the speedstream, my DLink 4300, and a second switch illuminating the office. If I could get rid of even one of those devices, I could score some points with the wife.

Feedback or suggestions?

Several people have indicated that a Westell works better than a Broadxent at poor SNR ratios. But if your link is solid, I wouldn't mess with it.

I bought a Westell on Ebay, but I'm seeing 15 dB on the Broadxent so not changing.

If it's not broken, don't fix it.
