Best router & modem for CenturyLink DSL?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Like the titled said,

What is the best router and/or modem for the money?

Not much gaming but mostly streaming HD Videos.

I'd say no more then $150 for both.

Thanks!

I've used the TP-Link 8816 for myself. (Cheap and just does the job). - http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16825165002
The Speedtouch 516 seems to be the best and the most widely used.

As for Router what do you want.
Right now I have the Netgear WNDR3700v2
Works great in a household of 4 with 2-3 devices per person.
Can deal with torrents or high connectivity situations and a 400 megabit internet connection.

Here is a listing of supported modems, I have an Actiontec GD701 in transparent bridge mode to my Asus RT-N66U and it works quite well. Maybe we can start adding thoughts and comments to this thread?

I've got an Actiontec GD701 transparently bridged to my Asus RT-N66U and it works well. Here is a compatibility table, you could try going through that and seeing which one seems best.
