Re: Does anyone still make good DSL modems?

The Westell 6100s Verizon hands out are still pretty solid units. Just put them in bridge mode if you have your own router, and they'll never need rebooting. I have had DSL service for almost 7 years now and I've had the original modem (minus one Verizon wanted back two weeks into the service due to a technical problem I experienced with the service). Handles 5Mbps/768kbps on a 2 mile long line with bare minimum stats without a problem. Just ask for a 6100, or pick one up from somewhere online.

I can't attest to other off-the-shelf units but I've heard good things about the Standalone D-Link modems.
