Cisco 675

This is a really nice product. It's an especially nice product because USWest gave it to me for nuthin'.

You can read the product specs at the Cisco web site (above). It will handle any SOHO (Small Office-Home Office) connectivity demands up to 7 Mbps, including routing.

It worked as advertised right out of the box. At moment I using it as a simple bridge, not as a router. Within the next couple of months, my ISP should start offering static IP addresses. At that point, I will start tinkering with routing. I'll post what I find out.

I should also note that USWest gave me a 3Com 10/100 PCI ethernet adapter for free, too. I didn't need it, so I passed it on to a friend. I already had an Intel 10/100 PRO in my box that worked fine.

The latest news on this is that Qwest may be charging extra for the Cisco box versus an internal DSL "modem". If you have more than one computer, it is, of course, worth the extra cost.
