Recommended Modem

  rupie 21:25 27 Jul 2009

I need some recommendations on a new modem for my Broadband, I want just a modem as where the socket comes out of the wall I do not want to put a large router. Do not ask me why I do not extend the socket !!!.
I have a linksys WRT546GS wireless router that works fine and did buy a Linksys AM200 modem, unfortunatly I did not know they are incompatible with each other, Do not go there either.
So what would be a good economical unit to buy ? My broadband is 512kb

I think a modem/router is best(a single unit). No need for a separate modem unit and separate router unit.

There is a size difference, but if you can hide a modem then you can hide a router. But I surpose if you have several wired machines then you have the cables to hide too :(
