Excerpt: I wanted a wired DSL Modem with multiple ethernet ports and this is a modem is a great choice. The only con is the setup CD took me 2 attempts to work. On the second try I had no problem connecting to my DSL provider. The wizard set-up did it all after inputting a couple of settings that you need to get from you DSL provider website. The connection is steady and I have had no problems at all with this modem.
Summary: Received this modem today and installed on the network. The hardware install was easy. Connected from my VISTA OS to the modem as an admin and ran the wizard. Fifteen minutes from the time I opened the box to connecting to the internet. No problems with needing to know the MAC address or other attributes to connect, the default attributes worked. The modem is at my business with four computers connected to it. All were able to connect without problems.
Summary: I took it out of the box and looked at the contents. Then I opened the pdf user manual. It was 68 pages long! Nice and thorough but I can't afford to be offline for more than a day or so before I start losing money. This looked way to complicated and for fear of fouling up what I've already got, I just put it back on the shelf.
Summary: I tried to install this Modem two months ago. The wizard connected it to the computer but not to AT&T my ISP. I checked D-Links website for support at that time and found that most of the pages didn't even display correctly on my computer. There was very little information on this sparse site and most of it said, contact your ISP. At that time I was too busy to spend an hour on the phone so I put off using it.
I tried to install it again tonight.
Summary: I bought this to replace a 3 year old defective Westell 327w Verizon provided. This was my second Westell modem and I did not want to pay VZ $89 for a third. After reading reviews about compatibility here and elsewhere I decided to purchase this modem. Before setting it up, I wrote down all my settings from the old Westell with the vision of having a complicated setup -- the setup was easier than I expected from reading the reviews.
Summary: Router arrived and hesitant to connect as earlier no-name router and livebox both required calls to customer service and a good investment of time.
Took the plunge tonight and Alhamdulillah! with the router going through the auto-configure option I spent 5 minutes and entered only my account name and password and my aDSL connection was up and running.
The box comes with a 110 / 240 switching power supply and all necessary cables.
