      What is wrong with the one you have now ? why would you want separate router and modem? Seems a backward step to me.

      Pretty unjustified reason for wanting an unofficial modem, I have 2 servers, 2 desktops and 1 laptop and wii connected fine.

      Re: modem/router seperate

      If you want to make thing really difficult for yourself you can put your router into bridge or DMZ mode and connect it to a commercial firewall router such as Cisco or a Windows Server running ISA (Internet Security & Acceleration Server).

      You will then have full control over your port forwarding, VPN, QOS, streaming etc etc and you can run your own web servers, email servers, DNS. the works.

      Dead man You asked for advice which was given in that the sky routers are more than capable of doing what you want to do.
      It is up to you to accept or decline our collective advice.
      Why pay out for something that you have already got.?
