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. - 2-year warrantee - Includes power adapter, splitter/filter, two phone cables, one ethernet cable - Mini CD for set-up, which doesn't work for a lot of computers, but there is also a web-based user interface.
Summary: Bought this to avoid having to purchase or lease a modem from my ISP. This little guy works great and I have had very, very few interruptions with this box. It just trucks along 24/7. In well over a year of use, I have had to reset it twice. It doesn't get too hot (which can slowly kill off many of these modems) and is a breeze to install and use. Highly recommended.
Summary: Bought this to replace a 9 year old modem from Centurytel that was having issues. Out of the box it only took about 20 minutes total to get it going. That included getting it out of the box and installation. Very quick and it worked right away after following wizard. Fast shipping too and free. And half the price of your higher end Netgear, another plus. Very pleased so far.
Work around for no internet and the useless customer service.

Summary: I set this up and couldn't get it to work. So I called my service provider and after they screwed around with it for 20 min they told me to call the manufacturer. Well wouldn't you know it, the have a help line. The first few times I called it, I got a busy signal. That only happens when i call my grandparents who still have a land line that gets left off the hook. What business this side of the 1980's allows their customers to get a busy tone?
Summary: This modem arrived promptly at a very low price. It is still in the box as I am ordered it as back up for a refurbished Netgear modem that I have been using that drops the connection only every now and then.
