I'll give you a DSL filter for free.  I have a bunch from my pre-FTTH days.

You just need a cheap "broadband router" to sit between the Arescom and the
computers/TiVo.  The Arescom modems work well.  No need to replace it unless
a Cisco 678 is cheaper than a broadband router.

You may also be able to reconfigure the Arescom modem to have a larger DHCP
pool.  I have some software that allows you to reconfigure them (usually
only available to the ISPs shipping out the modems pre-configured).
