Lol, we're both doing the same thing then, cool!
I have already ordered a netgear wireless gateway that I plan to use with the Comcast connection when I get it, so I'll be covered there. I know I can get a regular modem (no router) from their office if it packs up for any reason.
The Westell was a free gift, so I want to put it through its paces and see what it's worth; I heard that these we're solid performers back in their day.
I had three Linksys routers stop working right, one was a gateway from a previous Comcast connection I had some years back. That one works, but the wifi's gone. I'm kind of working with other brands for that reason, for now anyway (hence the netgear gateway I ordered).
I also got a netgear wireless router a while back, but the power adapter I had was the wrong size tip. When I ordered another adapter, supposedly the size tip I needed, it came with exactly the same adapter tip! So now I'm either going to get another router that has ereything, either on craigslist or ebay..
I'm just doing this as a proof of concept, especially since it's so easy to configure on the Verizon DSL gateway, so I decided to throw my hat in the ring (not by myself, though!).
