Relatively old these days but that's what the ISP (tpg in Australia) recommend - probably the least heat generation of any ADSL2+ modem I've used - much cooler than my old billion 7401vgm (now that's a POS) and the Dynalink so with any luck might last a while. Wireless coverage is good enough.

I'm getting close to the max throughput for local speedtest at about half a mile from the exchange.

Good enough and relatively cheap if you don't need voip built in - I use a gigaset so this is fine.
