HOLY CRAP BATMAN! Its everything I would want if I were administrating a crapload of modems at an ISP.
Now, not to dispair, if you really want to have your modem all snuggly safe, because you don’t trust the people who are certified, and paid to do it for a living, to keep your modem secure, you could always buy one from Newegg.
