My System Specs

Default Looking for ADSL 2+ modem

Hey guys I'm going to be changing isp's and the modem they supply imo is crap (Comtrend ct-5621t). I was with them over a year ago and kept getting dropped connections. I would only notice it during gaming and we all know when that happens it can get $$$ and annoying when you have others in game depending on you.
Now they say I can purchase my own as long as it is an ADSL 2+ modem. I am wondering if any of you have a recommendation for a modem. Not wireless under $100?

Thanx

From what I've read, the TP-Link TD-8616 or TD-8816, or the D-Link DSL-520B seem to be the most popular, and all of them are <$50 after taxes.

Get the D-Link DSL-520B. It has a Broadcom chipset and supports the DSL 15 or DSL 16 profile without a problem. My TD-8816 couldn't keep a sync at that speed.
