I use BT business broadband and have a setup that was stable for quite some 10 years but now looks like it is about to fall apart since I'm now having problems that I can't solve the same way I've always solved them.
I have an old Netgear ADSL modem and a D-Link modem, which I swap around at times. I have a gateway server acting as a router and firewall.
I'd like to replace the gateway server with a router to simplify the setup. Probably separate wifi too.
I think it would be better to get a separate modem and router in case I decide to upgrade the broadband to fibre and need a different modem.
My main goals are robustness and ease of use. I currently have to administer the iptables firewall but I'd like to ditch that in favour of a subscription-based firewall that regularly updates its blacklist of bad sites - although only if I can get something that doesn't cost more than £100 a year.
Is there a good combination of router, modem, access points, built-in firewall? Or if not, separately?
