Wat? the 255 was the best modem I ever had. I only got a superhub in order to get 30mbit. If I hadn't wanted 30mbit, I would still have my 255.

I don't want my ISP to be responsible for my security. I don't trust them enough. My security is defined by me, making only me responsible for it. I have a commercial (paid for) antivirus software on all my windows PC's (2 of them), with a commercial firewall as part of the package.

My linux machines arun iptables and have all un-needed services turned off.

I personally think my own security runs rings around that provided by the superhub.

Re: 255 Modem

I'm not talking about that. I'm on about VMs network security.

Does this mean it'll have to be upgraded
You will get the automatic double speed from 10 > 20 with your existing modem.

Any further upgrades will be on request and will require a SuperHub
