I imagine that any number of members here have a handful of DSL filters
(including myself) that you could have.
I have the Qwest DSL modem that you mentioned. I do not use it for
routing though. I have a NetGear router attached to it that does all the
routing for all my many network devices. Works great.
Actually, I recently had to pull the router off and while it is off I have
put a plain switch in place of it. The Arescom modem is still handing out
plenty of IP's for all my devices. I have not changed the DHCP defaults.
Yours should be able to handle what you want.
