    router that supports remote connections?

    A small server that I set-up for a company has a problem. It currently uses an Alcatel Speed touch modem for its ADSL connection, which is always connected.

    However it seems to drop the connection at the weekend

    The problem is that I need to set-up a remote connection so I would like to install a router (always on) that will allow incoming connections. I’ve set this up it runs fine with the current modem although I need a router so it does not drop the connection.

    The problem happened a few months ago, then it was fine but now it’s gone back into its old habits.

    Why not hook a normal modem into the server, and use that as a dial in point? That way if the BB modem drops, you still have an entry point where you remote in, and restart the BB modem?

    Yeah the problem i have now is the ISP doesnt support static ip's so if the router the connection drops, It will assign a different ip

    So it looks like they will have to switch ISP's, I'm with Zen who support static ip.

    BTW do you own a Draytek? I'm using a D-link 504 . . . (I LUV it )

    simple solution to that is to use a dynamic dns solution like no-ip.com

    the draytek will automatically register with such a service when it reboots.

    I have about 10 drayteks out on various client sites. I use a smoothwall/frog combo at home
