Hi - I need to replace a missing cable modem (which RCN normally rents but is equally happy just connecting to whatever the user has). Previously that was a Toshiba Cable modem, now replaced by a RCA Thompson DCM 425 at a similar location.
I understand I can use a "standard" LInksys cable modem (even with wireless) router.
I intend to use a better firewall / wifi after that cable modem, and so what I am mostly concerned is getting the best modem in terms of quality (and manageability / monitoring re line drops etc). Also I guess there isnt much I can do re quality of the line, if I wanted to tru SIP phones etc. but just in case I can do something at my end, what would that be?
What would you recommend and where to get it ?
