Works with CANTV (Venezuela), use Bridge mode for pairing with a WiFi router
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?
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

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.
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

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.
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

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.

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.
