Re: [General] Best modem for AT&T 6mb dsl

For the first time in many years I am looking at switching from Comcast to AT&T, only because Comcast can't decide if they can service my new house (right next to another house that does have service... idiots). So just in case, because I work from home and MUST have reliable internet, I need to get the most reliable DSL modem for use on an AT&T 6mb connection. By reliable, I mean not dropping the connection in the middle of the day thus dropping my Cisco VPN circiut.

AT&T offers their usual Motorola modems. The last time I had DSL was over 10 years ago, using an ancient Westell, so I am not up on all the brands.

In that case you need at least 2 working modems on hand, and a wireless modem for failover.
When drops are due to ATT crumbling infrastructure,, modem will not help.
