I've been through a few D-Links and have never been thrilled by them, we've got a 604T wireless adsl modem at work which needs to be restarted frequently. I was trying to get in by LogMeIn tonight and the the internet went down at work!

Any suggestions for a reliable small office adsl modem with a strong wifi built in?

netgear dg834g have served most of my family very well despite heavy torrenting on most of the connections from time to time.

Dynalink recently released two new models that look good.

Depends on your budget and whether you want gigabit ethernet and wireless N.

In my experience, anything else is more reliable than a dlink by a long shot.

Dlink's are crap. Always have been.

I have a dlink switch that is unreliable. How is a switch unreliable you may ask? it has nothing to crash like an operating system.

Well, it forgets how to learn new mac addresses till powercycled every few months.

I use a 3Com Office Connect, great little unit. Had it for around 5 years now and never had any issues with it.
