Default Modem and Router Combination...


My question is this:
I currently own a SpeedStream 5100 Modem, (through SBC/ATT DSL), I currently have a Linksy Router BEF blah blah, can't remember all the model garbage. This thing is history, so it really doesn't matter.

I'm trying to dodge Linksys, I'm not impressed, the router was 2 years old, and hasn't been a good friend tro me (left me a few nasty looking knuckles...J/k)

The problem it was giving me was this, when I was using the internet it would go off and on, but not like right after the other every 10 to 15 minutes it would shut off my MMPORG games, and my msn messenger. And I've done process of elimination until I reached the router.

I'm hopeing somebody with the 5100 SpeedStream that has bought a router, and has it hooked up, if they could share there expierence with the setup, and if it's worked great. I'm looking at D-Link, and I really need at least an 8 port, but a 4 port will work with wireless setup.

Thanks in advance.
