I currently have an Actiontec GT701-WG DSL modem which I purchased through Qwest when I signed up for their internet service a couple years ago. Unfortunately this modem has started to fail so I need to get a new one.
I am primarily a software guy, though, so could use some guidance: What would be a newer model of the same type of modem? What features should I look for? I know I want wireless capability like the GT701-WG. My current unit has only WPA security; what is the latest security protocol recommended? I also use port forwarding and MAC-address filtering, but I suspect those are pretty standard features. Should I buy from Qwest or can I buy from any retailer? What else should I be considering?
