Hi, can someone please recommend me a wireless modem with:

JohnWill recommended me a Linksys RT042 (http://www.linksys.com/servlet/Sate...32835&pagename=Linksys/Common/VisitorWrapper), unfortunately its a wired modem

1. QoS (I bought a wired qos modem before but it didn't have features like how much bandwidth a certain device gets. I want something where you can set the upload/ download values that you want.)
2. Website/ domain blocker (I don't know if its possible but is a nice addition)

Thanks.

Of course, this router has no QoS, so it doesn't satisfy the basic requirement. ;)

Hey Newtonetworks
The wireless router that Onsite recommended is the same one that I have and it work great. I have a small WLAN of 3 computers and I have no problems in regards to security. The D-Link router is a great choice.

Ok I've been doing some research and I found this:
http://www.futureshop.ca/catalog/proddetail.asp?logon=&langid=EN&sku_id=0665000FS10043626&catid=

it states that it has this:
The router also enables the Linksys Parental Control Service (a free trial of the Service is included).

Does anyone know if it can just block specific websites? That is all I need.

according to the linksys firmware website:
http://www.linksys.com/servlet/Sate...goBlobs&blobwhere=1130776314525&ssbinary=true
It has qos support.

Should I get a WRT54GS-CA(FR) - Wireless-G Broadband Router with SpeedBooster?

As always, I appreciate the help.

Looks fine to me. Note that the Parental Control Service is a pay service, you only get a trial period. I'd be looking for the capability without paying a monthly fee.
