I have one very unreliable DSL service which I need to remain connected when unattended. My present modem, part of the Netgear DG834G, makes some attempt to renegotiate after a disconnect but it is often ineffective and can not establish a connection by renegotiation where it can by rebooting.
I'd appreciate suggestions on DSL modems with more aggressive demon-like attitudes to regaining connection after detecting a loss and one which is reliable in that detection. If it's part of a router, fine. If it has wireless, even better - but the performance of the modem part of any multi-function unit must be outstanding and price is not a consideration.
The DSL service in question uses PPPoE and also PAP for authentication.
