Re: DSL modems with built-in simultaneous Dual Band router ??? The c1000a is the replacement for the q1000. They only include 2.4ghz radios. My suggestion is to take whatever modem they give you, turn off the wireless, put it in bridge mode, and use your existing router (or buy a new dual-band unit).
Depending on the area you are in, you may need to go to the WAN setup page in the router and enter your PPPoE username and password (if you bridge the modem).
If they are going to charge you a monthly rental fee, then tell them you will supply your own modem. Go to Best Buy and get one of the c1000a modems in the CenturyLink packaging for $99.
