Re: getting a router

I agree that the 2Wire is excellent, unless it dies a year and a half after installation, out of warranty, of course. I especially liked the statistics it gave on my line, convincing me that there was no point trying for a higher speed DSL service. Too much attenuation!

I am now using the Zoom Telephonics X6V, which is doing a good job for me. It has a much better wireless range than did the 2Wire, probably because it has an external antenna instead of an internal one.

Setup of the Zoom X6V is not for the faint of heart though. The setup program is not speech friendly, leading to a lot of guesswork. Since it wasn't a recommended model by my telephone company, the setup with them was not automatic as it was with the 2Wire. Once I got past all of that though, the user interface to the gateway is just standard HTML.

Two Wire and works very well with their DSL service.

The 2-Wire web interface for setting it up is very accessible with JAWS.
