Most gateway routers used by home customers are profoundly not secure, and some routers are so vulnerable to attack that they should be thrown out, a security expert said at the HOPE X hacker conference in New York...

Interestingly, I have a router/modem from my isp and it isn't full of the security holes listed.

at my last place in Saskatchewan, they replaced my modem one day, and I couldn't change the DNS or the WIFI password. I contacted them to come replace it (I'm not using some bunk redneck DNS), and they told me it had been destroyed. lol. the tech literally left my house 15 minutes previous... I complained a bit, and they came the next day with my modem. actually, there was a day where like, the whole province didn't have internet, but I did. lol. the internet there is a Crown Corporation, read: above Monopoly laws... but I digress. modem and WIFI security are very important, but try to tell that to some ISPs. :\
