Would appear to have gone the way of the Dodo I am afraid, last one I saw was the Dynalink ALH181 which has long been discontinued.

Presumably this is some kind of PC acting as a gateway/router/proxy.

You could go with adding a new network card to the PC and connect it to a standalone ADSL modem modem device.

I would look at a Draytek Vigor 120 for full pppoa to pppoe bridging if the software on your PC has a pppoe client. Alternatively you could look at an cheap ADSL modem that does half bridge like the TP Link TD8840.

Might have to go the way of the TP-Link in half bridge mode

I do have a second ethernet card acting as a wan on the router pc but I find i get a much higher quality connection when going through a pci modem because the external network routers like the dlinks and so are not very good at holding up with a couple of computers running the p2p software and crash out.

So it might be the tp link to go.

Question : Why cant you replace it with a "normal" routing device?




I would love to change the world, but they won't give me the source code

Bandwidth counting and billing for the students living in our flats
A home router wouldnt do this normally.

It also runs kerio winroute firewall, and is a file / printing server

This product is OK, and it is simple to run as it is seen by the system as an Ethernet interface.
Which is nice if you want to run a firewall distro like pfsense.

If you need more ports then this is also OK but its an ATM device so you need to deal with PPP etc. Note that this also support multilink PPP.

Half bridging takes almost all the strain off the adsl modem/router and leaves the connection management upto your gateway/proxy.

So it should work well for you.
