Re: Stable dsl modems for marginal lines
2wire was exclusive to bell correct? Locally there is a 2wire on kijiji, still waiting for a reply. the picture shows the white bell modem in the upright position. How old are these units? older than the speedstream 4200?
In Canada Bell, Sasktel and Telus have used 2wire modems. You can get brand new ones on Kijiji or Ebay with AT&T or Qwest firmware and these work well.
This one is brand new and unlocked. »toronto.kijiji.ca/c-buy-and-sell ··· 29024801
Hmm I have one of those in a box. I have a habit of trying to pull off 6000 meter syncs (and do pretty good) Maybe Ill try it somewhere--

these units have a built in wireless router too if i remember right...i actually set one up for a family member a few years back. How would I go about using it as just a modem (i doubt the 2 wire uses wireless N which I use exclusively for home network media streaming)
I guess the unlocked versions allow for bridged mode?
Yes, they have a router but you can put them in bridge mode and use a separate router.
ok..ill keep my eye in the classifieds. the one for sale locally needs a power supply...not really the power supply but the size of the plug that can be hard to track down. + i cant see it working :-/
any modems on the discount shops with the broadcom based chip-set in them (CC,NCIX,newegg,tigerdirect?) Ive heard the new TP-links use trendchip, which is unfortunate...
If you can, upgrade you package to a FTTN DSL (10M,15M uses your current modem). With FTTN you don't have to worry about distance to your CO, only the wiring to the Node.
