looking for a 19" rack mountable adsl modem ?

Morning,

Can anyone recommend a 19" rack mountable ADSL modem you use with PLUS.NET ?

Im looking for:

- something i can confirm works ok (previous Cisco 800 series adsl modem kept dropping line)

- pptp passthrough compatible

- no wireless support

- 19" rack mountable

Thanks for any help.

I'd say go for a Cisco, like a 2600 series, if you can afford it.

Are you sure it was the router which caused your problems and it wasnt the line or anything else?

trouble is the existing ADSL modem is perfect (apart from the fact the firewall is crap, its old, cant get passthrough to work .... connection fine though).

The CISCO dropped every 2 mins. The connection option were easily accessible and were set to PLUSNET recommendations.

However if you wanted to configure anything like port passthrough you had to use scripting which is just over the top for what i needed.

Could you not just buy a 19" fixed shelf and stick the router on top?

The shelves are only 15-20 quid or so, definitely cheaper than a new rack mountable router. Especially a cisco one. Tongue

Or just sit it on top of a switch.

I'd agree with the common thinking that its easier to just bung it on top of something already in the cab - mine sits on a shelf alongside one of our firewalls, which is also not rackmountable.
The other firewall makes an excellent shelf for these two to sit upon. Cool

problem is have have 2 x switch at the moment and a bunch of rack moutable servers ... all of them have non rack moutable stuff on top already ... need rack mount unit or shelfs to tidy it up.
