PSTN, as in dial-up?Are there any specific specs i should be looking for pstn routers?
If you want IPv6 (connectivity or firewall), you must use the CLI. That may be a deal breaker for some. Additionally, for someone requesting a simple interface, I think the Ubiquiti is out of their league. The web interface is simple, but you must know what you're doing, as you must configure NAT and the firewall manually.It really depends on your environment and what kind of products you'd like. yes Apple-esque would be nice, but not alot of these brands offer anything substantial to that....if you look at Ubiquiti, you are going in the right direction. but you have to consider the hardware and how you want to set-up your network....its not overtly complicated but it takes you away from typical consumer products and their interface is really easy to navigate and set-up.
I would suggest a two pronged approach. Get a DSL modem that's supported by your ISP and get a separate router. For me, this allows me to upgrade the router later without having to repurchase the modem, or upgrade the modem without having to replace my WiFi.Excuse me, im referring to adsl routers, i just changed that in the title cause i had it as plain routers in case there is a misunderstanding! :-(
I wouldn't get one at this point. Many ISPs are now rolling out IPv6 but the AirPort range doesn't have IPv6CP functionality and Apple tells me that there are no plans to implement it. In practice this means that IPv6 won't work with some ISPs (including mine!).If you're looking for a standalone router than get the Apple AirPort Extreme. It may have been a while since last updated but it is still one of the best on the market.
In my experience switching the IPv6 setting from Auto to Link-Local Only resolves IPv6 compatibility issues. But this may not be the case with all ISPs but it is with most using IPv6.I wouldn't get one at this point.
