Where on Cooper St in arlington sells wireless modems?

I already checked with fry's (although they not on cooper) and all they have is off brand stuff no one's ever heard of. I am looking for something name brand, that I can actually find some support on if need be. Something like D-Link, Belkin, Trendnet, Motorola, 2-wire... the usual. So where can I find a place that sells a wireless modem on cooper? That's where I'll be headed today. Perhaps somewhere in the mall has one? To be clear, I'm not looking for a wireless router, but rather one of those Modem/Router all in one things.

wireless routers?? Frys has name brand stuff? I always shop at the Matlock location and buy name brand.

You could try Walmart or Bestbuy as well.

I checked frys and all they have is "Zoom" and "Actiontec". Never heard of em, so I left em alone.

Zoom and Actiontec are dial up modem brands, what are you needing?

Wireless ROUTER? If so Fry's has all kinda of brands including the main ones.

If you are looking for dial up modems then Zoom is a good brand. Btw, no such thing as a wirless modem.

I think I know what you are looking for. I have this, picked it up at Best Buy.

DSL modem and Router combined. I use a seperate wireless accesspoint, but having the DSL modem and router combined was a big help.

Are you looking for a DSL or Cable modem? You have to be careful when getting one that it'll match your service provider.

Fry's would be your cheapest option. I find it hard to believe that they do not have what you want.

I purchased my Belkin wireless modem after I took back my D-Link and this was all at Fry's. Maybe you just didn't look hard enough?

Eh, winded up going with the actiontec. I thought it was off-brand and might be poor quality, but it's treating me all right so far. But yeah, Zoom and Actiontec is all that fry's has, in the way of wireless modems. Now do they have all manner of regular modems, and wireless routers? Yes. But I was looking to avoid that setup for now, until my networking skillz increase a little. It's kinda nice to have an all in one.
