I'm moving to a new property in a few weeks, and unfortunately I won't be serviced by cable internet. So long DOCSIS3 :(

I'm looking at Teksavvy dry loop, but I don't like their selection of modems. Does anyone know if you can bring your own device to Teksavvy, and if so, any recommendations? I'd like to get an N-wireless at a minimum.

DSL-side, any ADSL/ADSL2+ modem will work and they don't care that you bring your own (just know that they don't provide support for modems they don't sell, though I doubt you'd be calling them for modem support).
Cable, they have a list of supported modems and I think that's it.

Most people just get a modem-only (e.g. ST516) and then use any router they want.

A WRT54GL with tomato is a great choice, though you want N.
I haven't really moved into the world of N yet, so I'll refrain from comment on a good device there :p

'54GL+Tomato user here, supplemented w/ 8pGigE switch.

If I were in the market today, the ASUS RT-N16 would be at the top of my list; blazing fast CPU, tons of memory, N-wireless, GigE and well supported by 3rd party firmware. Around $88, but YMMV if it goes on sale.

Others favor the D-Link DIR-655, but I've had bad experiences with this brand, as have you it seems.
