Greetings wise wizards of EE:
I'm helping a non-profit who has continual Internet connection issues. I've done a great deal of troubleshooting, and have isolated the issue to their networking equipment. In their location, they only qualify for DSL service. The ISP that provides their service flat out will not issue a new DSL modem+router gateway, but instead only replaces troubled equipment with refurbished models, which is very surprising. They have issued five replacement gateways in two years, so the non-profit wants their own equipment instead.
A colleague of mine is going to configure our own brand of router, so all we need is the modem. However, I have scoured Amazon and called many manufacturers to no avail with what I need. We are considering purchasing a router to set into bridge mode, since we are having so much trouble finding the right modem.
Here is what we need: a modem (or router) that is both ADSL (advanced DSL) and VDSL (very high speed DSL) and bonded pair compatible. It does not need wireless capability, but we can disable if needed
There are a kajillion cable modems out there, but DSL modems/routers with the above requirements, not so much.
If you have a recommendation that fits the above requirements, I would be most grateful indeed. Cost is not too much of an issue, at this point.
Many thanks in advance,
