  • This has been a big improvement!

    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: DSL modem and Wireless router in one, easy install, works great, AT&T support
    Cons: A little pricey; sparse manuals

    Summary: I have AT&T Worldnet DSL for my internet connection. Through last week, I was using a Siemens Speedstream 4100 supplied by AT&T as my DSL modem and had the D-Link DI-624 as my wireless router. My main PC, A Dell Dimension 8100 is a ... read more

    Pros: Combined modem/router, wireless router + four Ethernet jacks.
    Cons: Problematic as a modem, poor WiFi signal, no IEEE 802.11n, expensive, AT&T customer service.

    Summary: Some years ago we changed our internet provider from Comcast Cable, which was a disaster, to DSL with AT&T. As part of the deal we got a modem/router which pretty soon had to be replaced, and it was replaced with this one, the 2Wire 2701HG-B modem ... read more

  • Good all-in-one solution for most home users

    Pros: Easy to setup/use, with good wireless performance.
    Cons: Not for power users, expensive, less than perfect reliability. 802.11g only.

    Summary: I've had att/sbc dsl service several times in the past, and noticed that recently they have been supplying these wireless home gateways / dsl modems.  Previously the customer was provided with a basic speedstream dsl modem which required a ... read more

  • Awful.

    Pros: Nothing.
    Cons: Expensive.Slow.Unreliable. ATT will charge you if there are technical problems.

    Summary: I bought this DSL modem/router to replace my old and reliable ATT 2wire1000HW.This one was relatively expensive $99 and the only reason I bought it was because I thought that buying an ATT modem would give me free technical support if I would need ... read more

  • So far, so good

    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: easy setup; nice control panels; good wireless range; Mac&Win setup disk & utilities
    Cons: wish Internet light would blink to show activity; lights glare; needs printed manual

    Summary: vMy Westell home gateway has been slowly dying, so AT&T sent me this modem/wireless gateway yesterday. Instructions were sparse, but the lion's share of the setup is done by the installation disk. It has drivers for both Mac OS X and various versions ... read more

    Pros: It can hold down papers on yoru desk from blowing away.
    Cons: Slow and it tries to be all things to too many people. 

    Summary: I have work with network systems for 20 years and I have seen the good and the bad. This modem is definitly one of the bad. First fo all lets start with the buggy interface. It allows you to create mappings for ports to mac addresses of ... read more

  • Nothing short of Horrible.

    Pros: Somewhat fast.
    Cons: Frequent broadband/DSL errors. Not the best support out there

    Summary: Although somewhat fast, this thing, every day, seems to return "broadband link unavailible" or "DSL failed to connect" every five seconds for five minutes at a time. We've rebooted the piece of junk more than once, then called AT&T, and they told us to ... read more

  • Nice modem/router - poor power supply

    Pros: Easy setup, no problems connecting to the Internet.
    Cons: Power adapter failed - seems to be a widespread problem

    Summary: Needing a new modem/router I purchased one of these via Ebay. I had no problems setting it up. But good thing I kept my old modem; the power supply failed on this 2wire model. Looking around the Internet this seems to be a very common problem. I've ... read more

  • 2Wire 2701HG-B

    Not rated yet
    Pros: Easy to install
    Cons: Horrible support from ATT and lousy life expectancy with the product itself

    Summary: These modems keep freezing on me.  I have had to replace two within the last two months.  And getting support from "Bob" in India is nothing short of infuriating.  My recommendation?  Skip ATT and Skip 2wire. In fact run, ... read more
