If some others won't even sync at all, it means your line quality is poor and the modem has to work really hard getting data through.  So the amplifiers have to run at high power.  So your statement explains your overheating and crashing issues.  Suggest you try and place the modem vertical so you can get convection cooling rather than trapping heat under a horizontal circuit board.  That is what I like about the Linksys silver boxes, they have lots of ventilation holes top and bottom and are actually designed for mounting against a wall (i.e. vertical).





You can never have enough Volvos!

I can sympathise with the Dynalink users. I have used both a RTA1320 and a RTA1335 and they both just give up after a couple of days. I even tried attaching a small fan to the 1320, no effect. I'm on Xnet Flood and don't use much data, but when I do I do it in bursts. I remotely access my server often so it's a real pain when it dies and I'm away from home!

It also doesn't seem to like having more than one device talking SIP through it, the QoS goes all weird.

I'll probably swap it with a Linksys when funds allow.

A late post to the original question now, but still relevant.  The best option is probably going to be the Linksys AM300 ADSL2+ modem.  It is unique in that it has a 1/2 bridging feature - this means the internet IP address (e.g 58.28.4.2) is passed directly to the router behind it instead of being natted and the router receiving a private IP address (e.g 192.168.1.1).  Effectively, the device becomes an ADSL2+ to Ethernet media converter!

I saw some info on it here:
