I'll add a "me three". I've now come to the conclusion that combined
modems and routers aren't a good idea. Well, not unless you can find a
high quality one. You are putting your eggs in one basket. I prefer to
run a switch behind my modem/router combination device, and connect all
my gear through the switch. Things seem to run better, for me, that
way. And I can reset the router without disrupting my LAN.
