we recently switched to cox cable and as I don't want to spend $80 for the joe schmoe cox cable modem, i want to purchase a solid one with wireless capabilities as well as firewall or some sort of security protection from the outside. What are my best options?

You're better off buying seperate units. Get a Motorola Surfboard and any namebrand wireless router.

i've been researching and it definately looks like i'm going to go that route as the all-in-one combos just don't cut it. i was considering the 5120 for the modem. read that it's pretty solid. how does that turbodox software with d-link's modems stack up? does it really improve performance?

I've never heard of turbodox software so I can't comment on it. I just download the latest firmware for the router and leave it stock. I haven't had any problems with D-Link routers.
