Need Netgear 7550 hardwire & wireless PPPoE replacement
I'm on AT&T DSL. I'm using Netgear 7550 hardwire and wireless single-unit modem/router.
It uses protocol PPPoE. Does anyone know of a more expensive, more high-qaulity, rock-solid, no-nonsense, alternative modem/router that is protocol PPPoE?
Any single modem/router [or any combo of 1 modem and 1 router] has to have 4 ethernet ports.

[I reworded the above to indicate needing hardwire and wireless.]

Any dsl compatible router should work (you will need your login information). You can always call AT&T to make sure it's compatible with your service type. I personally use an Asus RT-N66U behind my Cisco firewall. The Asus is compatible with dsl, has great WiFi coverage and loads of features. You may want to look into the newer model Asus RT-AC66U with 802.11AC WiFi. It is backwards compatible with 802.11N and offers enhanced speed when matched with a 802.11AC wireless adapter.

Edit: The DSL-N66U AND DSL-AC68U are the DSL versions of the Asus routers.

sneakycyber, thanks!  I had to add in my OP that I also must have 4 ethernet ports.  I did not see that listed in the description, I might have missed that if it's there.

I made a mistake in my first post the RT-N66U and RT-AC66U are not the DSL routers the DSL-N66U and DSL-AC68U are. Both of the Asus routers I listed have 4 ethernet lan ports as well as the WAN port.
