[Qwest] Best Century Link Modem

I am looking to get Qwest/Century Link service in my area(fastest they offer is 1.5 currently), and I am wondering what people have found to be the best modem. I have a wireless router, so I would just want traffic to pass through. I do online gaming, browsing, and possibly some VPN in the future. Thanks in advance for your thoughts.

the 660 they send out or at least used to, don't know what they send out now isn't a bad modem/router at all. since you've already got a router just set the modem to bridge mode and you should be good to go. if you don't want to pay the $5 rental, i don't blame you, you can buy your own 660, zoom makes cheap ADSL2+ modems that work well.

the above is the one they used to give out when you signed up for service, sprint/embarq anyway, don't know if they still do.

just remember you can use any ADSL2+ modem in my area we use PVC1 so 8/35 in your settings and set the thing to bridge, let your router do the work.

I use Zoom 5715's in ex Qwest territory... They are a bridge only device with no routing capabilities. I also use a separate router. Never have to reboot even with 24/7 video streams up the pipe...

The TP-Link TD-8816 is decent, and only $20 brand new.

I purchased this one (actiontec) »www.newegg.com/Product/Product.a···25109010 a few weeks ago and I have had no issues and I have no complaints about it. It has been very reliable so far.
