Modem Router or Separate Devices?

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
I am using at&t dsl and planning to upgrade to wireless n. I have a 2wire dsl gateway. Should I wait for the netgear all in one gigabit dual processor wireless dsl modem gateway or go for the linksys e3000 or netgear wireless n router with a separate modem?

Separate routers are always better supported by alternate firmware. If you have to separate devices it leaves room for future upgrades. So just go for the separate modem.

Better performance by doing it separately?

Usually all-in-one gateway/modems are trash. They're built by the lowest bidder for the ISP.

Go with a seperate router for future firmware upgrades. Netgear makes some really nice routers like the 3500L. I personally can speak for that model....sweet.
