The important part to know is that I will be going to install either a 12 or 24-port unmanaged Switch which then goes to something like a Cisco RVS4000 router which has built in firewall/VPN etc (VPN only useful because all these devices like phones and media players will be constantly automatically accessing the internet for various apps/functionalities running in the background).
What I am after is a recommendation for solid standalone ADSL2+ Modem that is commercial-grade that never needs to be restarted or turned off. Does such a thing exist? I am just after a recommendation for a product... And I like separate components because that component does one thing well and isn't overloaded doing things. But maybe I am living in a fantasy land. But if there is something better I am all ears.
Oh, the client's telephone/ISP will be Telecom NZ. The client's apartment is located at the bottom of Albert Street in the Auckland CBD.
Any suggestions will be greatly appreciated- even one line answers with product codes are very welcome!
EDIT: Or a 100% reliable modem router that I can set to bridge mode which is commercial grade I guess is what I mean
EDIT 2: Whoops! The replies are coming in already! Thank you!
