Thanks, guys....

I have never had a good result using a combo modem/router, especially with Voip that I have used exclusively for many years now.

Generally speaking separating the modem and the router are the better approach. This allows you to buy a modem once, put it into bridging mode and forget it until it breaks.

Then you can change routers until you get happy. I would imagine that there are some pretty strong SOHO type units that can handle just about anything. But for me I have gone with things like m0n0wall or pfsense running on rather meager PC type hardware or specifically for firewall type headless x86 units.
