    Hi all,

    I'm currently using a DrayTek 2600VG which is working well, but due to:

    1. Wireless traffic not being included on QoS
    2. At least 20Kbps slowdown when using QoS
    3. WPA & WPA2 being bundled together, therefore WPA doesn't work with my XBox

    I'm looking at possible alternatives.

    Before I state my shortlist, my MUST HAVE'S include (in no particular order):

    1. PPPoA
    2. Wireless
    3. QoS (I use VoIP - External SPA)+(QoS must include wireless traffic)
    4. WPA
    5. Support MAXDSL

    Nice to have's include:

    1. Ability to schedule wireless 'On' & 'Off'

    My shortlist includes (again in no particular order):

    1. Sticking with what I have
    2. Zyxel 660HW
    3. Cisco 877W
    4. Billion 7402G
    5. Speedtouch 585
    6. Speedtouch 608WL

    Alternatively, I could go down the 'separates' route with:

    1. WRT54GL (running 3rd party firmware) & Any Recommendations?

    Any opinions on my situation or on my shortlist? Does anyone have any other alternatives?

    Any advice welcome as I'm going from 1 to the other, back to another etc etc. You get the picture, I'm going around in circles :argue:

    lol you must be joking... v6? stay away!

    m8, tbh a ADSL2 modem then go for a WRT54GL with either HyperWRT or DD-WRT firmware. the wireless on off could be done via a script using a cron job i guess.

    I do quite like the idea of WRT54GL with a 3rd party firmware, but what about modems? What modems do people here use? :confused:
