Summary: Although it doesn’t quite support the distances achieved by the Zoom ADSL 5715, at the right price the NETGEAR offering is a perfectly viable modem with an industry-standard warranty and complementary help and support. NETGEAR is a quality brand and anybody who is researching DSL modems to buy instead of lease would do well to consider the NETGEAR DM111P as a possible purchase at the right price.
Pros: The product contains all standard features expected of DSL modems.
Cons: For users who require a firewall, this is not the answer.
Summary: Router does. It can be configured as either a full bridge or half bridge (where it enters your ISP username & password). Perfect to plug into a separate Router, it's an ideal product for people with more advanced Router needs such as multiple VPN Routers like Snapgears or more advanced wireless products such as MIMO where an all-in-one modem/router isn't available or isn't desired.
