I'd be grateful for any comments on my search for a secure router for home use.
I read the post about the perfect spec for a router: http://forums.thinkbroadband.com/hwsuppliers/3565132...
This included the comment that: "the firmware should enable you to over-ride anything the DSLAM tries to do, like resetting the IP profile/bRAS or the SNR target, but give you the flexibility to change these things at will".
Please can anyone tell me:
a) How important is this feature, and does it have a generic name (so that I can look for it in the various router specs)? If not, which routers can do this?
b) Which (cheapish) routers can do this as well as having the other good security features?
How secure are mid-range routers, e.g., Billion 7700n, 5200, 7800n, or Draytek 2710n et al?
Or anything with the all-important Broadcomm chipset, which apparently narrows my choice down to Billion 7700n or 7800n, or one of the Speedtouch models?.
Or are they all secure if they're configured properly?
(My ISP is BT and line quality is average after two line repairs in as many years)
Many thanks in advance for any comments.
