A few months ago, I purchased AT&T's Uverse package with 5 static ips. I thought I got a deal....
Of course, since I did not do thorough research on this first, I got screwed.
For some reason, AT&T's 2Wire Gateway device does not allow me to use my Cisco ASA 5505 behind it with MULTIPLE public/static ips. (I am not going to explain why here, but it is true).
I would have to put the static public ips directly behind the 2Wire, and this is not acceptable to me.
I could also use PAT on the ASA, but I do not want to do this either. I just want to throw this 2Wire device away!
Based on this, does anybody recommend an ISP that provides the AVERAGE FASTEST internet speeds that can provide me about 5 static ips at a reasonable cost?
I would like the setup to include a basic DSL Modem (not a Chinese-made piece of junk from AT&T that does many things badly) that connects directly to the OUTSIDE interface (ethernet/RJ45) of my ASA.
I am thinking of actually switching to CABLE, as I have heard some of their internet speeds can be very high.
I live in El Dorado Hills, CA, just outside of Sacramento.
