    It's costing me like $70 / mo for 1.5 down 380 up and 5 dedicated IPs (additional $10) The speed is constant, and it doesn't go through "filters" like some bandwidth providers and not a single port is blocked.
    There are many companies re-selling covads lines, but it's better to go to the source.
    I'm not sure where the term "Dry DSL" applies, but thats the nickname of it. If your DSL (at the router) requires ANY logon info, it's not dry.

    it's the up I need ...
    and to have "2" up for $49 wouldn't suit me

    It's great bandwidth though, never have problems.

    That's usually a signal strength problem. Best Buy carries (online and in the store) a replacement antenna (pair) that adds something like +5db (or thereabouts) of gain. I bought it and installed it on the same router as yours and it made a huge difference. My truck sitting out at the end of the driveway now stays connected to my router in the house until I power the computer in the truck off. Before, it would drop the connection several times in an evening.

    By the way, when you configure that router you'll want to turn off the broadcasting of the SSID and limit the computers that connect to the router to only those computers whom you've specified their mac addresses in the router. And, of course, choose a good authentication schema (not WEP) which requires a key and encryption to connect.

    You guys with cable modems should realize that you won't ever get the rated upload and download speeds that your cable provider claims you will receive. You share your bandwidth with your neighbors and as soon as you start using the line to heavily they'll automatically bandwidth throttle you.

    I disagree, I'll post my speed tests and my acutall download speeds.
