5 out of 5 eggsreally solid, and really fast....

Pros: Simple setup, especially if using in bridge model. And, even without a lot of tweaking, very stable, and very fast.

Cons: Well, whoever designed the web-interface to the modem should be shot (or spend some quality time working with Linksys, who do a much better job). But otherwise....

Other Thoughts: I have a Verizon DSL setup at home. Recntly, Verizon upgraded my speed to 1.5 mbs -- not warpingly fast, but much better than the 0.3 I was running before. While I was pleased with the upgrade in performance (5x is nothing to sneeze at), I noticed that my Westell 6100 modem (bridged to a Linksys WRT54GL wireless router) was now running warmer, and - recently - starting to 'drop connections. Major pain.

So, I figured it was time for a new DSL model. Bought this D-Link unit, and proceeded to set it up in bridge mode. Relatively easy (directions that work for most - including me - collated at http://swisscobalt.blogspot.com/2009/01/how-to-bridge-dsl-520b-with-wrt-54gc.html) - took 5 minutes. Locked into my DSL quickly, and I was surfing away.

But, I noticed that page loads seemed *much* faster. Out of curiosity, I ran 2-3 different DSL speed tests, and I'm now getting anywhere from 9-12 mbs!! For doing *nothing* more than upgrading the DSL modem.

It all made sense - and I know that 'old hardware' (in this case, the Westell modem) could be a performance bottleneck, but I wasn't expecting this.

Due solely to D-Link? Probably not, although I;'m sure the fact that it seems well-configured helps. I think its simply the fact that its new. There are precious few DSL modems out there, so based on my experience (albeit a sample of one), if your current DSL model is >2 years old, might be worth dropping a few dollars on this D-Link unit. Of course, your results may vary, but for me...wow!

4 out of 5 eggsWorks great, fairly easy to set up

Pros: This was the most recommended ADSL+ modem on forums... well, without going into the $65+ price range. It is simple and no frills.

We used it from November 2012 until summer 2013, when we upgraded to VDSL2 (which uses a new special modem)

It worked fine that entire time. No issues. No drops. No unusual situations. It doesn't get that hot, and it's compact so it's fairly easy to tuck away.

Cons: We put this thing into bridge mode, so we could let our DD-WRT router handle the PPPoE connection. Getting this thing into bridge mode was a bit confusing, as it was asking for "Encapsulation Mode" and other settings I had no idea about. I've used other modems where it was as simple as switching it from router mode to bridge mode and voila.

Not the biggest gripe, but also not the simplest interface I've seen.

Other Thoughts: While we're not using it anymore, it still works fine. I tested it not long ago at a friend's place, and it still works. I'd recommend it, especially when it goes on sale.

Pros: Excellent support setting up the modem and making it work with our existing router when our local ISP was ineffectual.

Cons: None at this time.

5 out of 5 eggsGrrrrrrrreat

Pros: I have had no problems with this device (see Other thoughts) it has not had any problems.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: I thought I was having problems, I thought it was modem, thought it was DSL, then I thought phone lines. So I replaced the wire from Bell's connection to modem. Still problems, replaced wire again, this time with CAT5, still problems. Come to find out I had a lot of OLD twisted pairs all through this 70 year old house, I mean the old black cloth/rubber 2 wire twisted pair. Scraped everything, cut out all existing wiring and replaced it all. WOW fasted speeds I've ever had.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Modem/Router Combo

Pros: Excellent connection speed vs ISP provided modem. Lots of features. Qos, uPnP, Autodetect DSL configuration, Port forwarding, DMZ, SPI firewall. Decent routing capabilities for a home user. Web GUI is very responsive.

Cons: Configuration of this modem can become complex for a novice user if this is your first time using DSL.

Other Thoughts: Can use this modem as your primary router but you will need a switch to connect more than one computer. If you are having issue with getting this modem to work the most likely cause is either Improper Username/Password or Incorrect VPI / VCI settings

If you are using this modem with AT&T you need to follow the AT&T directions on registering your service which can be found in your self installation kit. The PPPoE username and passwords are different when you first install your service.

4 out of 5 eggsBest you are going to get

Pros: Will perform better than almost any carrier provided junk. I have used three of these over the past two years and they are all still working perfectly today. They sync up very nicely and provide much improved connection speed over the carrier junk.

Cons: The GUI is the standard d-link clunky mess. It looks like it is not receiving any updates anymore which isn't too big of a deal. DSL is sort of a dying standard anyway.

Other Thoughts: If you need a good modem that supports passthrough (bridge mode) without being a constant source of frustration then look no further. This will do the job for homes and businesses alike. I can not comment on its ability to be a DHCP server or a router in general but I would think that it would be rather lackluster in that regard. Save yourself the headaches and use this to bridge into a real router. For the DIY crowd look into PFSense. Turn that old pc into something useful again.

4 out of 5 eggsNo Filters Included

Pros: Works fine, "pride of ownership" VS renting from ISP. This modem also does routing, NAT, has full web interface, but only has one ethernet jack.

Cons: Does not come with telephone filters, hopefully you already have some. My ISP insists that DSL and ADSL2+ filters are not the same but who knows. It would have been nice if they'd included at least one in the package.

Other Thoughts: Newegg was not the cheapest, but I bought it here because I knew it would be delivered quickly, and it was! Hopefully this modem will keep working a long time.

3 out of 5 eggsWorks OK, unless you need bridging mode

Pros: This DSL modem got high ratings for throughput, and it worked fine for me as a normal router.

Cons: I needed this modem to run in bridging mode because I have an advanced Zyxel router to handle my routing/security needs. I could not get bridging mode to work no matter what I did. I read several online articles describing the procedure, and I confirmed that I had the latest firmware, but it still would not pass traffic in bridging mode. Many others have had trouble running this particular modem in bridging mode, so I suspect there is some sort of firmware bug that wasn't addressed by the manufacturer's QA process.

Other Thoughts: I just need a basic DSL bridge to connect my DSL line to my router, but all the manufacturers insist on including router functions as well. I don't think they worry too much about bridging mode because its not very common for most users. Fortunately, I was able to return this modem thanks to Newegg's awesome return policy!

5 out of 5 eggsMUUUCH BETTER than the provided DSL modem from my ISP

Pros: uses broadcom chipset, syncronizes DSL link better, gave me a max bandwidth of 19XXX Mbits and before it had 15XXXMbits,

im a little far from the ISP DSLAM, thats why i got this beauty, also tested from the DSLAM side(i work in that ISP too :P) and it did match the max copper speed that the Modem said.

Cons: you need to know which VPI/VCI you need to have in the modem settings, you can read it off the old dsl modem your ISP installed.

if youre not intermediate to high level computer tech, youre going to have a hard time

5 out of 5 eggsAwesome

Pros: Replaced stock CenturyLink rental modem, which used to drop signal every 15-60 minutes, messing up video streaming. This modem is stable as can be. Also, I'll save $4.49 per month on modem rental now.

Cons: none yet
