    I am losing DNS randomly for 10 to 20 seconds at various intervals. Line tests and such seem to indicate the line is ok, so the modem is suspect.

    All my devices are wireless. Would it be better to ask AT&T for a new modem (I am two plus years in so I don't have a real contract) or just buy my own?

    It would be best to buy your own, but you will need to know how to install it properly. If they give you a modem for free, go for that instead.

    I would agree that if they will give you one for free, take it. Otherwise, if it isn't one of theirs, they may not give you any support when you have problems. One thing you may want to check is if it is the hardware, or problems with their DNS. You may want to plug in other DNS addresses, such as the ones from OpenDNS, to see if it is hardware or their service.
