I am in this for the long term and I don't mind having a second router.

Qwest sells their statics in blocks of 8 leaving 5 user assignable. I want to get 4 machines on my 5 user assignable (second site). I need to ask Qwest what their opinion is about the 678 but I believe it is one they use. Lots on the net about "NAT", much more than I thought there would be.
Can't really comment on that model. Probably overkill for a home setup. I personally think that any decent-brand model that supports the required protocols is sufficient... Personally, a modem should be doing just what a modem does. It shouldn't be doing any network address translation or some such. Dedicated router or firewall device for things like that.

Though at least the 678 doesn't look like a glorified Linksys... <shrug> Don't know for sure...

With something like

Order deny,allow
Deny from all
Allow from 86.468.46.26
Allow from 43.345.87.21
This, because this won't make you log in i don't think, or if it does, it will only allow those two ip's, even more secure than just the Password.

Let me see if I have it. Place exceptions in my firewall for certain IP's and then protect the actual site with this htaccess technique.

Patrick, thanks for the confirmation. I found quite a bit on the web about how to perform the htaccess procedure and also about modifying the firewall. I worked this site with the firewall down for months last year with no trouble but last week it was up for like 3 hours and I got slammed, then Qwest detected major traffic (they said they could not tell what kind) and placed that page on my IP's saying I had to contact them. At first I did not believe the page was from Qwest, but it was. The thing is even after I cleaned everything up I was still restricted until I contacted them. +rep

EDIT. In regards to changing my router type, I would also be satisfied with any router that performed the basic functions I needed, the trouble is there is alot of data out there saying the Actiontech modem is "buggy" in this sense and documentation is very poor. I am a person that needs good documentation and I have developed a basic understanding on how CISCO speaks (mind you very basic, as anyone that claims to be fluent in CISCOese is very special).

If you keep looking it seems a solution comes. I think I drop the Qwest service all together and go with a Comcast business solution for home. They give me 10 user assigneable static IP's and phone service for 125.00. I am currently paying 160.00 for my combination Qwest/ Comcast services (Qwest was the only one to offer static IP's on a home plan). Then I can buy the CISCO 5505 that I always wanted (and ComGuards recommended) and I can actually work with a CISCO router while I study for the CCNA. I will get the documentation and capabilities I need to protect my web sites also.That attack that came last week really put a fire under me.

I do have the firewall modified as instructed and the htaccess as instructed so I am good to go for now but this is too much of a "home user" solution (but I agree a very good one,very cost effective). The downside to dropping Qwest is I loose the redundancy provided by having an ISP over cable and an ISP over the phone line. In the last year I would say Comcast has been down for a total of 8 hrs. Sure I would like to keep both and play with the adsl way of doing things also but with the 5505 costing close to 400.00 I have to drop Qwest for a while to pay for a tool I need to learn with.I am glad I already have done some CISCO router programing so I am certain I will not get myself into a position of not being able to program the router. All is set for January (I will keep Qwest until the Comcast side is fully up, can't be without access unless I pull off my Dads router for a while?)
