Customer Equipment: ADSL ConnectivitySkyway West uses Comtrend CT-507 routers and various Zyxel routers. We recommend routers as the more reliable and versatile option than ADSL modems.
ADSL EquipmentA DSL modem also known as a bridge, combines one or more networks into a single seamless network while a router forwards data traffic between separate networks. A routed service separates your LAN from your ISP's network. A router examines the network addresses in the packets it receives and forwards data destined to the Internet to the ISP's router.
ADSL routers enhance your Internet connection in many ways, including NAT (Network Address Translation), DHCP (Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol), VPN (Virtual Private Networking) and firewall support. Some equipment includes a built-in hub so you can easily create a LAN for your DSL connection.
