With my Draytek Vigor 120 dead the question is, what else can I choose
from? So far I have discovered:
* Motorola Netopia 2210 DSL Modem
* Netgear DM 111P V2 Ethernet ADSL 2+ Modem
* D-link-320B ADSL2+ Ethernet Modem
* Zyxel P-660M ADSL2+ Modem
* TP-Link TD 8817 ADSL2+ Ethernet/USB Modem
I have only added this information as it might save others some time.
