1. A good modem that reliably stays connected to ISP all the time.
2. If connection to ISP disconnects, it must be able to reconnect automatically.
3. If item 2 happens, the router must be able to renew the WAN IP on its own.
I have not done this before, but I have a fair idea on how to configure it. I wanted your opinion on which modem to get.
I am leaning towards getting a Draytek modem because it has PPPoE to PPPoA bridging (or pass through). I understand this is a full-bridge and it is a better implementation than PPPoA half-bridge. I also get the impression that Drayteks are very good modems. If you have a Draytek modem, please let me know your opinion on this modem and your experience with PPPoE to PPPoA bridging.
Getting a Linksys AM300 may be another choice based on discussions here in the forum. With the latest firmware, I understand PPOA half-bridge works reliably.
Please help me choose a modem.
BTW, I'm still on ADSL1 (and not ADSL2), but I don't think that matters.
TIA ... Art
