Help me pick out a DSL Modem and Router.

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
I've been using a gifted ActionTec GT784WN for about a year and a half now, and it seems to not want to connect to the Internet every few days for a couple hours, as I have no other other Router/Modem to check this out I'm presuming its the Modem/Router at fault and am looking to purchase something decent for I don't have to keep purchasing a new combination yearly.

I've been hearing negative things about getting a DSL Modem + Router, and I'm trying to not break the bank and buy something simple and cheap and another Modem + Router unless its better to go and grab one,like one of these D-Link DSL 2540B or ASUS N-10 and calling it a day and hoping either doesn't break in a year. So basically if anyone has any input on a dependable DSL Modem and Router I can purchase that'd be excellent, thanks in advance guys, or if the above is a good option to buy as well.

I had this router/modem and it worked great, until ATT's "genius and helpful" staff and technical support couldn't get it to work (and nearly ruined it.). Now, I'm stuck with a horrible cheap 2WIRE piece of junk.
Oh, right, here is the modem; http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=33-122-377&ParentOnly=1&IsVirtualParent=1
