Westell 327 with Linksys

Message 1 of 3

I have possibly a stupid question, but here goes.  I have a Westell model D90-327W15-06, issued to me by Verizon several years ago.  I've used it only as a modem, with a Linksys 802g router since about 2007.  My question is this: I want to upgrade to an 802n router. Would I need a newer or different modem from Verizon?  If so, would they provide this free of charge? Is this modem/router the newest equipment they have issued?

Thanks in advance.

You can upgrade the router without upgrading the modem.

The newest equipment they offer for DSL is a Westell 6100 modem, or a Westell 7500 gateway. I'm not sure if Verizon still hands out ActionTec GT704WGBs, but either way if the 327w is still working perfectly fine, it is an ADSL2+ modem despite it's age so it's as new as you're going to get connectivity-wise.
