I am currently protecting my network (mixed Linux & Windows) using a dedicated box running IPCop firewall. This connects to BT ADSL via a Speedtouch USB modem, which is getting a bit old and creaky. Would like to have the 'up to 8mb' speed which apparently current modem does not support. Is there a simple ethernet modem (ie without firewall or anything too fancy) compatible with both BT and IPCop and not too complex to configure.

Ethernet modems with not router are few and far between. D-Link do one but I found it unreliable. I went back to my Origo modem/router, bought from Ebuyer, with the router switched off so it acts as a plain modem feeding my router.

Ebuyer have this safecom adsl modem router, it does have a firewall but that can be turned off. You could also look for the Binatone 2000 which does not have a built in firewall.

Thanks for the help. Will have a look at the modems/routers you suggest.

I've been using the DLink one for about 3 years without a single issue! Works like a charm and has a browser configuration interface and even DHCP should you want it, but that can be turned off too.

It that the DSL-300T? Mine kept hanging, and I read other reports of the same on the web.
