Summary: This is a good modem for <10mbs. I bought it as a backup. It was dirt cheap and readily configurable to my DSL. As happenstance, it is now in use as the primary modem due to a lightning strike nearby.
Summary: Not pay the rent fee. It is worth to buying one if you want to save money. But it can be used on centurylink 1.5m internet only. For higher speed internet, you must rent device from centurylink.
Summary: well , sometimes electronics that has firmware gets old. The device may be in working condition but it runs out of life to work with the new technology. That was the case of this router. Firmware just too old to work at the higher speeds I needed. I need to resell it .
Summary: Works fine right out of the box. Easy access to screens to setup and monitor performance. If you're looking for a modem thats just a modem, that is you already have a router with WiFi then this is the deal for you.
Summary: It is very easy to setup this modem. All you want to is to enter your own Qwest user id and password, and then it starts working. It does not come with WiFi, but for the price, I don't complain. Moreover, hooking up an external wireless router is not hard at all. Overall, I'm very happy with this DSL modem.
Summary: This replaced my original one from SBC (Southern Bell Company) which lasted about 10 years... now that's longevity! Since then AT&T took over and it's been downhill every since. AT&T are like the big banks, they want to nickel and dime you to death. When SBC was in control they would just replace something like this as long as you were a good up-to-date customer. NOT AT&T... you have to buy everything now. And their tech support is absolute crap too (unlike SBC).
Summary: I bought this modem for my new ATT service. It was easy to install. It seems to work great so far. Occasionally the DSL drops but I'm not sure if this is from the modem or ATT. Overall I'm happy with the purchase. It saved me money from buying a modem from ATT and it's been working great so far.
