Excerpt: The NETGEAR DM111P, from NETGEAR Inc., is a good modem that includes all features basic to competitive DSL modems . Its warranty is not as good as the warranty for the ZyXEL Prestige 660M and it does not include the firewall and support for VPN passthrough found in the D-Link DSL-2320B and the Motorola Netopia 2210.
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.
