Great Buy

Texas User, Amazon

  • Summary: This unit has a many features and works well. It appears to be high quality and the quick start instructions will work well for most people but it also offers the potential to set many application variables. These variables may be more than most customers want to tackle so this is why a good quick start is important. Lastly, the USB port is a nice feature as connecting to a computer via the ethernet connection normally involves having to access the back of the computer.

Good little inexpensive modem.

  • Summary: I have Centurylink in Colorado, they will first direct you to Best Buy and try to convince you that you need to buy their $100 modem. Not true. You have to badger them a little bit to get the information you need to set it up since they will tell you it is not a "supported" modem, i.e. your user name and password, the correct VPI/VCI settings and the type of encapsulation setting for your ISP. Took a little bit of effort, but works like a charm.

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. The error was due to losing the DHCP lease (which the Siemens assigned). The TP-Link TD-8817 is not on the list of DSL modems offered by AT&T, but it's been rock-solid. I've had no dropped connections since switching to it.

Make sure your Centurylink is ADSL and not VDSL before odering this modem

Oliver, Amazon

  • Summary: Centurylink customers should contact Centurylink Support before ordering this modem and ask, if their account is ADSL or VDSL. Modem won't work with VDSL. I guess it's a great deal for the price. I had to return mine as my acount is VDSL. A clearer description would be nice (there is a sticker on the box, marking it as compatible with Centurylink).

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. To connect new modems in the past I've had to enter setup info, connect, manually enter bridge mode, and only then connect the router. None of that here.

Not even Tech Support

AJShadow, Amazon
9 September 2014
  • Summary: Like many others that have AT&T as their ISP I have a Motorola 2210 DSL Modem. Needless to say, the Motorola is garbage. Like so many others my Motorola Modem has begun to die a slow death after only ONE YEAR and at a cost of $87. I am not happy. The TP-Link TD-8817 is NOT supported by AT&T even though the box says it is compatible. I worked with TP-Link Technical support in just trying to get this modem to work.

Works flawless with Verizon DSL in California.

diego lara, Amazon
4 August 2014
  • Summary: I had a TP-Link all in one router/modem device which was starting to give me problems. I was getting very slow Verizon DSL speeds at around 1 to 3mpbs. My service is for 3 to 7mpbs but in the past I was getting at least 5mpbs so I decided to try a new modem and gave TP-Link another try. This time I wanted to go for separate devices instead of a router/modem combo. I got this device with a D-Link DIR-810L router and they have been working flawless so far.

Much better than At&t's junk motorola dsl modems

MissississississippiMan, Amazon
12 June 2014
  • Summary: After having 3 Motorola att modems burn up on me over the past 5 years I wanted to try something different. This modem has been hooked up for about a week now and performing great. It doesn't cost 75$ like the motorola and doesn't get near as hot. So glad to find an alternative to att modem garbage. As said, I haven't had this going but a week so if it under-performs at some point I will try and remember to update this review. Setup was super easy.

Not good

D. Riley, Amazon
9 June 2014
  • Summary: I tried to replace the ZYXEL unit that Centurylink supplied with this modem. The CD that came with it made set-up easy. Without the CD, setup was a nightmare. This unit would stop working about every 4 days and require a reset. It also had a problem driving a 25 foot ethernet cable. I ended up sending it back.
