Re: Should my modem be upgraded?

Well it turns out the woman at the office said we should have received a letter because we actually had to upgrade. I live at home yet so this is my parent's account, so apparently they either threw the letter out or we never got one. Anyways I had to go back home and bring in the old modem before she gave me a new one.

I used this speed test here: »testmy.net/download

Using the 200MB file size last night, I got 9Mbps. Tonight I'm getting 16 Mbps, so I think the new modem did increase my speeds. This modem doesn't have a router built in, but my old router is working for now. When would I have to get a new router? Is there any advantage to getting an IPv6 router right now, or does it not matter since all the websites are still dual stack?
