Not Plug-N-Play for most CenturyLink Subscribers

J Nino, Amazon
2 August 2015
  • Summary: Definatly not a plug and play device for Centurylink Denver subscribers! I do not recommend unless you are more than just computer savvy. Networking experience a huge plus! The installation disc included does work for CenturyLink as long as you will not be installing a router behind the modem, and I...

Good little inexpensive modem.

Tom, Amazon

  • 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.

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

Oliver, Amazon
20 October 2014
  • 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.

  • 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.

Not good

D. Riley, Amazon

  • 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.

Works with CenturyLink

Dan, Amazon
4 June 2014
  • Summary: I'm not thrilled to be stuck with DSL, but it's all that was available at my new apt. With that said, this modem works with the service, and it is cheap. I get the speed that I was promised (12mbit), and I have had no issues with reliability so far.
