This DSL modem works great with my CenturyLink DSL

Summary: This DSL modem works great with my CenturyLink DSL, although I had to manually configure the DSL modem for MAC Encapsulation Routing (MER)/DHCP (with LLC/Snap Bridging Encapsulation mode) to accept the DHCP protocol format from CenturyLink.
Summary: I had to replace my modem because the firmware for my old modem was out of date with the new standards and not being maintained. I was having to reboot the modem daily. My ISP wanted to sell me a modem at an inflated price. I found this modem at Amazon.
Summary: I JUST got this modem to connect, and I have a little advice for people calling tech support: If you're like me, you didn't write down your DSL password because you NEVER need to know it. Big mistake. After this, you'll write it down somewhere.
Summary: Small footprint, simple design, runs cooler than my old Motorola (cost less, too) and was easy to install...it just works. I opted for the manual install over the auto CD but the disc and instructions were easy to understand. I'd buy this modem again and that's the best recommendation I can offer.
Summary: Fast Modem, no disconnects so far. Woo Hoo! I would use the CD that comes with it, it's pretty well made, and has all the major ISP's. Other than having to wait on the slow interface, count to 5 before making each click on the web interface.
Summary: I bought this DSL modem to replace a Westell 327W DSL modem/wireless G router that I got when I signed up for my Verizon home DSL six years ago. We live in a rural area and are toward the end of the recommended distance from the switching station for a DSL line.
