I currently use a cheapo D-Link router (might be 604t, not sure) that came with my telecom connection about 4 years ago and it seems like it is about to kick the bucket.
I would like to take the opportunity to get a nice setup that will give me good performance (including wireless N) and also allow me to get routed connection to StrongVPN (or similar)
From what I understand, I need to buy a router that is compatible with dd-wrt. So far so good, I have been told about the D-Link DIR-615 which can be had for a reasonable price. There probably are many more options but this is not the issue here.
I also understand that this router does not directly connect to the internet so I need another ADSL2+ device that will do that. Do I NEED to buy an ADSL2+ modem/router or would just an ADSL2+ modem suffice?
I was looking at DM111 (Netgear) or Nb6p4 (Netcomm) or TD8840 (TP Link)
Is there any gotchas?
Please feel free to share any experience or tips as to what to buy and how to set it up.
