Ordered as a long shot... Works much better than others more expensive.

Summary: I have bought two other modem router combos and could not get 11776/1024. This modem was able to get the speeds when the other two could only get me 11776/700-800 range. The other manufacturer support was terrible. I didn't need to contact Tenda tech support bc the set up was simple. I ordered this because it was dirt cheap and I like to test cheap stuff out. If it works like I should, great, otherwise, I'll return it. No harm to test something out.
Summary: This is actually my first modem, so unfortunately my knowledge on others is rather limited. Previous to getting this/ my recent DSL line, I was using wireless hotspots around the area, but they started to disappear and become more unstable, so I caved and got my own connection. As you know you can get a router from a provider for a rental fee each month, which to be honest is just a rip-off, so to avoid that I hit the interwebs to find something that would suit my needs...
Summary: I had been using a 2wire 2071 DSL Modem linked to a Belkin N Wireless Router. The setup worked OK, but I wanted to clean up the desk. I decided to purchase the Tenda W300D. I had reciently changed from Netzero DSL (Sonic.net) to ATT. The 2wire dropped the DSL sync frequently and wouldn't re-sync for minutes to over an hour. Originally with Netzero for over 3 years, I never have this problem. I had ATT out 3 times to check the wiring and it checked out fine.
Summary: I bought this to use with AT&T DSL when I moved into my new apartment. It took me about a half hour to set everything up after watching a few instructional videos on Youtube and using the instructions AT&T sent me. I haven't had any dropped signals in my apartment and I definitely recommend this to anyone who has a small apartment.
Summary: Despite what everyone on this review site says, this modem/router does support CHAP. After going onto the advanced setup, then into DSL you find where you can turn on the CHAPS setting. My own experience has been very good with this modem, it took little time to learn how to set it up and when completed it beat the speed my ISP supplied router by about 80%.
Excerpt: Только позитивные ощущения. Все быстро настраивается, если есть хоть чуток практики в этом деле. Работа и стабильность только радуют!
Pros: Пользуюсь данной моделью более полугода. Сначала использовал как ADSL-модем, теперь, с переходом на другого оператора (ID-NET Казахстан) - как роутер для раздачи по вайфаю. Настроил на раздачу Id-Net за одну минуту. Работает стабильно. Хотя, когда работал в режиме модема пару раз пришлось перезагружать. Кстати, возможность легко и просто настроить на работу хоть как модема, хоть как роутера в инструкции не заявлена. Просто самостоятельно полазил в настройках и все наш...
Cons: Единственное, что может быть не очень удобно - тонкие настройки все на английском. Хотя, если человек владеет базовым английским, то это не проблема.
