Hi there geekzoners, I was wondering whether the group mind had discovered which router\modem works best for semi-rural properties that are a long way from the closest cabinet.  One of my mates who I play Destiny with is having issues joining strike and crucible matches.  Seems the servers either don't like his NAT type or latency.

The ideal plan would be to be able to use a router/modem that you can cheaply or second hand to handle the ADSL and then use something like a RB2011 as the router AP.

One of these: http://nicegear.co.nz/routers/draytek-vigor-2710e-adsl2-modemrouter/ 
Very good for those rural lines and can be put onto full bridge. This is better than the Vigor 120 for rural lines.
And of course, make sure they have a master splitter installed :)





Chorus has spent $1.4 billion on making their xDSL broadband network faster and even more now as they are upgrading their rural Conklins. If your still stuck on ADSL or VDSL, why not spend $195 on a master filter install to make sure you are getting the most out of your connection?
I install - Naked DSL, DSL Master Splitters, VoIP, data cabling and general computer support for home and small business.

Are you able to tell me if they have the same DNS flaw as the 2760?  Namely that no matter what you set the DHCP or client DNS settings to, it proxies all DNS requests to the DNS server it has received from the ISP.

Not sure, but if you are using in pure bridge mode, then this will not matter.

Hopefully you're right.  It's a pretty fundamental flaw in the O/S tho'.

Aside from the Draytek, the Asus DSL-N55U would be my choice.
