Not that I am going to hold my breath for one, but the user interface and features of the 7550 are pathetic and could be easily improved with an update. The modem/router is capable, it's AT&T implementation is horrendous (what are they afraid of?).
I'll get the ball rolling:
1. Start with an interface and features like its predecessor, the Westell 7500 (7501)--shouldn't be hard to do...
2. Be sure to add fixed ip addresses on the local network--so my printer and Squeezebox radio stop losing their connections.

1. I agree.
2. Appears to be a MAJOR bug running mixed mode. G-only will work. You may possibly have to change wireless security too, but not sure on that.
3. Hard to believe a $100 wireless G modem/router would not have support for DDNS (DynDNS). Especially since most people purchasing this gateway will have dynamic IP addresses. Wireless G? Yeah, see #2 above.
4. I would comment on IPv6 implementation, firewall etc.....but since I don't have IPv6....... after the website and AT&T tech support said "it's all I need"......yeah right. If you are listening AT&T, you might want to consider revising your website and giving a training session to your tech support people.
5. No manual? Seriously AT&T? $100 and no manual.
6. And actually, you can disregard my workaround in 2 above for getting a wireless printer to stay connected, since that only lasted for 10 minutes.
