DSL Modem/Router Tiers.

This is now basically subject to my personal opinion. There may be models that are released by manufacturers that are amazing, or are dudds. The best thing to do is take a look at http://www.whirlpool.net.au and have a look at the discussions regarding modems in everyday use.

While I have personally done some extensive testing of ADSL2+ modems in 2006, I spend my life in the top tier of hardware and don't read or follow much in the residential market.

Top Tier - As good as it gets
* Cisco 877 ADSL2+ - around about $600 - 1200 new depending on features
- (Older models still kick ass, 827/837/1721 with ADSL WIC)
- You can pickup cheap ones (2nd hand) at http://www.iptrading.com.au without too much trouble.

Better Tier for Home Use
* Billion
* Draytek

Acceptable for Home Use
* Netgear
* Belkin
* Linksys (no, despite the labelling, this isn't CISCO)
* Alcatel (Speedtouch)
* Siemens

Worst - Do not touch
* D-Link

The post above details ADSL technology and why certains things affect it/performance.

Basically, if you're close to your local telephone exchange you can get away with crappy modems but it's still not ideal. If you live a fair distance away routers like the Billion/Draytek & Cisco will give you far better connection stability and speed.

Quick tips for Happy Internets

* If you're on ADSL/Cable do NOT FLOOD your upstream bandwidth as this will affect downstream also. (Disable torrents, unplug your room mates PC etc)

* ADSL Tips - if your ISP Supports it (most do), use ATM PPPoA/VCMUX for the ADSL and ATM framing protocol. Never ever use PPPoE unless you have to. Most people have PPPoE/LLC setup - this is wrong.

* ADSL Tips #2 - MAKE SURE YOUR LINE IS PROPERLY FILTERED! I cannot stress how important this is. I personally didn't believe it at first until I tested some of the best filters money could buy $12 each .. lol. They make all the difference.

* Get yourself a good ISP (Network) - Telstra Bigpond / Optus / Internode / iiNET

* Get yourself a good ISP (Support), that prides itself on supporting Gamers and Internet enthusiasts (Internode/iiNET) which in turn have the largest customer base doing the same things you are. If they have trouble getting to gaming servers or other popular shit, they're going to know about it.

* If you are a LONG WAY from your local telephone exchange and you're having trouble with ADSL technology, try investigate the option of using Cable internet in your area. Telstra & Optus are the only two companies who offer cable internet - both networks are as good as it gets for gaming.
