    Any body have any coments on which is the best value
    with features/ price?
    The Dynalink RTA220 looks good and the Built in Firewall seems a good idea.
    Is there another model cheaper? , is it worth it?

    I picked up a Dlink 704p router (only router not adsl) from ebay for around
    $60 landed, I would highly recommend buying from overseas as so much
    cheaper. ..J

    Only there's no come back if something goes wrong with it. Although things
    might be a little more expensive here you're protected by the Consumer's
    Guarantee Act. Although in this case the item is so cheap it hardly
    matters :)

    I bought the DSE external ADSL router.

    It has a great feature set....and was $159.

    I was able to decommission my Linux firewall and make it a dedicated
    mail and web server behind the firewall router.

    also, anything you buy from overseas is very unlikely to be telepermitted

    My DSE router does not support the uPnP protocol, which is rather handy for
    some things such as MSN Messenger voice conversations, and a few other
    applications requiring PC-PC comms.

    The DSE router seems to work ok with my cisco VPN client , which is my main

    It certainly is.....re-directing ports is as simple as filling in a
    web-based form on the router's admin web pages.....submitting it and
    then re-booting the router - all via Mozilla or whatever broser you may
    be using.

    Simpull as.......
