Summary: Once i got it plugged in it took over two hours with tech support from TPLink and ISP and neither could tell me why the the thing wouldnt reconfigure. Took diving into the obscure sections of setup to find the problem.
Summary: this router modem been working good so far. at first when you wants to setup your internet for first time, call your internet provider and they will go through with you and will saves you lot of time. we set up our internet in 35 mins and its working great since.
Summary: I am updating to my previous post because Howard from TP-LINK suggested I update FW, but that's an invalid suggestion. The modem I bought is revision 5.1. Both router FW and DSL data pump FW are newer than the latest posted on TP-LINK website Howard provided.
Pros: Solid DSL modem function that is powered by TrendChip DSL chips.
Cons: Super unstable wireless N router that is powered by buggy Ralink Wifi Chips.
Summary: A solid DSL modem but horrible WiFi router. Ralink WiFi killed the attractiveness of the TrendChip DSL modem, making this all-in-one unit a pain in the rear to use. If you think your AT&T provided 2Wire is unreliable, this thing is 10x more unreliable.

After a mere 24 hours of running, it refused to let my laptops, phones regain WiFi access to the route...
Summary: Only reason 4 stars and not 5 is because it was a little tricky to set up as you have to know your isp modem specs or pick from a list. Mine had several att to pick from and it took a few tries to get the correct one but other that that it has been working perfectly.
