Top ADSL2+ modems

If you're looking for a new ADSL2+ modem that will be quick and reliable, check these out.

If you're looking for a new ADSL2+ modem that will be quick and reliable, consider these models in our top 5. Note that most of these products also have routers built in, and we've selected them on purpose because all-in-one devices such as these are much easier to set up and use -- especially for inexperienced users -- rather than separate modems that then need to be attached to routers in order to share the Internet connection.

The Fritz!Box 7390 is not only a modem, but also a fully-featured wireless router. It's arguably the best networking device on the Australian market and we found it to be super-reliable and well performing during our test period. It's our number one recommendation.

The Fritz!Box is fairly pricey though, so we've also included Billion's 7700N in our list, which is an inexpensive yet well performing ADSL2+ router. Along the same lines are the ASUS DSL-N10 and TP-Link's TD-W8950ND, which are simple and do their job well.

Netgear's N600 is also included, but like the Fritz!Box, it's a hefty investment. We like it because it also offers very good storage sharing features.

HP OfficeJet Pro 8730

A smarter way to print for busy small business owners, combining speedy printing with scanning and copying, making it easier to produce high quality documents and images at a touch of a button.

HP OfficeJet Pro 8730

I've had a multifunction printer in the office going on 10 years now. It was a neat bit of kit back in the day -- print, copy, scan, fax -- when printing over WiFi felt a bit like magic. It’s seen better days though and an upgrade’s well overdue. This HP OfficeJet Pro 8730 looks like it ticks all the same boxes: print, copy, scan, and fax. (Really? Does anyone fax anything any more? I guess it's good to know the facility’s there, just in case.) Printing over WiFi is more-or- less standard these days.

Windows 10 for Business / Dell XPS 13

I’d happily recommend this touchscreen laptop and Windows 10 as a great way to get serious work done at a desk or on the road.

Ultimately, I think the Windows 10 environment is excellent for me as it caters for so many different uses. The inclusion of the Xbox app is also great for when you need some downtime too!

Windows 10 / Lenovo Yoga 910

For me, the Xbox Play Anywhere is a great new feature as it allows you to play your current Xbox games with higher resolutions and better graphics without forking out extra cash for another copy. Although available titles are still scarce, but I’m sure it will grow in time.
