OmarFPG, Amazon
10 April 2015
  • Summary: At first I was not loving it. I bought this modem to work in Venezuela with CANTV, no luck out of the box. I saw a video on how to configure it and it did the trick. (https://www.youtube.com/watch?

WindStream Users and TP-LINK TD-8816 Modem

Roger, Amazon
12 March 2015
  • Summary: For WindStream Users, there is a FAQ within their customer support about 3rd Party modems. The following is a copy/paste of the article. I only needed to enter 0/35 VPI/VCI instead of the default 8/35 VPI/VCI, along with my user/pass for using this modem.

Note you don't put your PPPoe user/password IN the modem, they go into your downstream device

JP, Amazon
3 February 2015
  • Summary: One thing about setting up this modem I did not see explicitly mentioned that bears mentioning... because this is a simple bridge modem and not a router, you do NOT set your PPPoe user and password on this modem, you set it on the downstream router or computer that you connect to this modem.

Buyer beware this modem does not support VDSL.

A. Nortrup, Amazon
31 December 2014
  • Summary: This modem was easy enough to work with, the software was straight forward and easy to configure. Unfortunately I had to return it because it did not support CenturyLink's use of VDSL. Four stars for being a good piece of equipment, that didn't meet my needs.

TP-LINK TD-8817 works well with AT&T Internet (DSL) service

knorth2, Amazon
18 November 2014
  • Summary: This DSL modem works well with AT&T Internet service. My first two DSL modems were products from SBC/ AT&T. The first was reliable for a decade. The second, a Siemens Speedstream 4100, worked for a few months before it started disconnecting.

You should be good to go after that

dky, Amazon
20 October 2014
  • Summary: You can't beat the price. I'm giving it 4 stars because, for some unknown reason, I had to do a factory reset on my brand new modem to be able to access it at 192.168.1.1. Plus, its small CD cannot be used in a CD/DVD device that doesn't have a roll-out tray (mine draws the CD/DVD inside - no tray).

Totally automatic connection to AT&T, no setup needed for existing account

2 October 2014
  • Summary: I bought this to replace a 3-year-old Actiontec that was losing connections and overheating. Remembering past experiences, I called their tech support and got my DSL login username and password in case they were needed.

Cheap, fast, small, works with Centurylink in Portland, OR

Wormwood Scrubs, Amazon
10 September 2014
  • Summary: I've had it for two months and it's working great, so far, in bridge mode with a Netgear WNR3500 router. I am getting 10-12 Mbps down/.75 Mbps up using Centurylink's 12/.75 service. No heat issues. No other problems. Haven't ever had to reboot.
