Summary: This was the easiest piece of equipment I ever installed. I simply replaced my speedstream with this one and everything worked without any changes out of the box. I have a wireless router, and my speedstream was in bridged mode. Verified the speeds between the two and the speeds are more or less the same. I verified the interface to make sure there was no catch and it was already in bridge mode, and the defaults worked straight with my Bell connection.
Pros: very small, low price, easy to use, interface is easy to set up. Has an on/off button
Cons: runs a little but then again the speedstream I had ran hotter
Summary: Bought this a modem, and setting this up was a breeze. There is a 'wizard' that allows you to set up your internet, and there is also a more advanced settings page with more options. Good deal, and I would recommend this to my friends if they want an inexpensive modem.
Summary: I got this device for 9.99+tax as a backup. This device needs to have security manually configured based on reviews. Exercise caution and this is also very outdated hardware. do not buy if you are planning to use with with NEW DSL services.
Summary: TP-Link is fast becoming a favorite of mine. Their pricing is amazing but it's the performance that impresses me the most. When I replaced my old provider supplied DSL modem with this one, it TRIPLED my throughput! It detected all the right settings without hardly a tweak. Feature rich settings for the professional as well.
