Probably a common request, but need current advise on an ADLS2+ Modem/Router.
Currently have a TD-8840 which basically am pretty happy with but need to replace it with something which actually has a firewall and allows IP filtering.
The TD-8840, when in PPPoA modem basically doesnt do anything (had this confirmed by their Support):
"With regard to the IP filtering rules, all incoming traffic will only be blocked when the unit’s firewall has been enabled. However, enabling/disabling this setting is only available on the TD-8840 when it has been configured to use MAC Encapsulation Routing (MER) or IP over ATM (IPoA) connection mode in its ATM PVC Configuration page when configuring a connection under Advanced Setup -> WAN."
So servers / machines I have behind the firewall are not as protected as I would like.
Thus all traffic appears at the servers as from 10.0.0.1 (My IP Address for the TP-Link) ... so I cant filter at the servers either. My previous RTA1320 was good at filtering incoming IP Traffic, but just wouldnt hold a connection.
Can anyone recommend a good rock solid ADSL modem/router which does have a basic firewall? One which has a Broadcom chipset would be best ... since the TP-Link does hold the connection really well.
