I’ve been using ADSL at my small business since 2004. All these years I have changed more than 10 modem-routers of different brands because they have crapped out.
It usually starts with random disconections from the Internet. As time passes the disconnections become more and more frequent, while at the same time the DHCP server will not always work and the wifi will have problems as well.
Then the time comes when the router totally craps out and you cannot even access the configuration page.
Some other routers have overheating problems and need to be restarted every now and then. I had one router that whenever I did a big file download there would be a clicking sound (a thermal switch?) and the router would disconnect.
On the other hand, I had only two switches in the same time period and that was because I upgraded from a 10/100 to a gigabit one.
So is there any reliable SOHO modem router out there?
