Fully enjoy the internet speed you pay for by taking advantage of the high-speed modems for sale at Staples. DSL modems connect users' homes and offices to broadband internet services from cable providers. With the attractive deals available for this class of network equipment, you can reduce your monthly internet subscription bill by getting your own modem and avoiding the rental fees charged by your cable ISP.

Choosing Between DSL Router and Modem Deals
Make sure the modem you choose supports the DSL protocols implemented by your cable internet provider. ISPs usually list the DSL modems that are compatible with their services on their websites. Besides compatibility, consider the features available on the models you are considering. The typical DSL box has an RJ-11 port for the digital subscriber line from the provider, an Ethernet port to connect a wireless router, a reset button and LED indicator lights.

You can choose a regular modem or one with a built-in router if you want a 2-in-1 device that simplifies your wireless network. You may get a standalone modem if you already have a Wi-Fi router. A combination modem or DSL router is more affordable than buying them separately. It also guarantees that the two integrated network devices will be compatible.

Pick a Fast DSL Modem to Enjoy Broadband Speeds
The speed of a cable modem depends on the DOCSIS standard it supports. DOCSIS is an international standard for transmitting data over cable equipment. DOCSIS 1.0 modems deliver download speeds up to 38Mbps and a maximum upload speed of 9Mbps. DOCSIS 2.0 models improve on the peak upload speed of the older generation by raising it to 27Mbps. This is the DSL modem you need if you subscribe to a 30Mbps plan. DOCSIS 3.0 units boost both upload and download speeds to 152Mbps and 108Mbps respectively. For internet plans delivering gigabit speeds, look for DOCSIS 3.1 modems for sale. These offer a maximum download speed of 10Gbps and upload speeds up to 1Gbps.

What Is the Difference Between Fast and Gigabit Ethernet Ports?
A Fast Ethernet port provides a data transfer rate of 100Mbps while a Gigabit Ethernet port is 10 times faster. A Gigabit port also provides more bandwidth than a Fast Ethernet port. These differences make wired networks established via Gigabit ports outperform those with Fast ports. Get a Gigabit modem if your internet subscription provides speeds higher than 100Mbps. This will ensure that the Ethernet port does not slow down the connection reaching your wireless router.

What Are Downstream and Upstream Channels?
Modems use channels to describe frequency bands used for transmitting data. DSL modems supporting DOCSIS 3.0 and later can transmit data on multiple channels and bind them together for improved performance. More downstream and upstream channels translate to higher throughput and faster download and upload speeds. Having more channels also helps avoid network congestion from the cable provider's end.

Can You Connect a Cable Modem Directly to Your PC?
Yes. You can hook up your PC to your DSL modem as long as you have an Ethernet cable. This setup is not as secure as putting a router between a cable modem and your computer. While some modems have firewalls, these devices primarily act as gateways to the internet. Routers have more robust security features and can filter incoming and outgoing internet traffic.
