The ActionTec Q1000 is a great little box. I used it for over a year with VDSL, and it worked flawlessly. The Gigabit Ports were a nice upgrade from my previous box. For wireless, it DOES incorporate WPA2/PSK w/ AES256, and MAC Filtering, which makes it very secure. The interface is easy to understand and navigate.

I've relocated to an area that doesn't have DSL, so I easily switched the Q1000 to Bridging Mode, and now use its Gigabit ports and Wireless with a Cable Broadband system. It's still working wonderfully, and its WiFi signal is certainly better than 3-4 other WiFi Routers I tried.

Note: I'm a Network Engineer, hacker, and all-around amazing lover.
