Re: Stable dsl modems for marginal lines 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.
