modem recommendations?

If you intend to add additional PCs in the future no.

For the same price (and even cheaper) you can get a fully functional 4 port ADSL Modem/router that will be much better. It's the ORIGO ASR8400, available from ebuyer for about £30. For a bit more you can get a better product like the Netgear DG834.

You will be better off in the long run to get a ADSL modem/router rather than just an Ethernet modem in my opinion.

Having a DSL-300T myself I'll 2nd what Peter said.

Although easy enough to setup, it refuses to work on Xbox live or with my Linksys router.

I have just sold it & am likely getting something like the one Peter mentioned.
