Welcome to the new AT&T Community
We've got a fresh look! Take the tour to see what's new.
Just bought a used Netgear to replace my 2WIRE that has been crapping out over the past 2-3 months. Does anyone know of any configuration settings that will be optimal so i can get the most out of this modem. Setting e.g. Channel, DHCP settings, security, MAC Assignments, whatever you think will be appropriate, will be most welcome.

If this is outdated hardware, what do you recommend? AT&T just sent me this same modem (Netgear Versalink Model B90-755025-15) yesterday (January 22, 2014). Why are they sending out Gateways that are only as good as a doorstop/paperweight (and paying to ship it overnight, no less)? What should I get instead?
Thanks very much in advance for your help.
well if they sent you the same model, then it probably still works for your dsl. Give it a try, let us know if it does work for you.
This Modem/router is absolutely a piece of garbage. I am horrified that this equipment, which is being dumped on e-bay for under 20 bucks, is supposedly going to cost $100 from At&T after repeated service calls and ridiculous time wasted switching out hardware after hardware over the last year. STILL DROPPING and LAGGING and it is time to admit that the problem is with the AT&T service and not the equipment. I am willing to bet that there are a few of us in the neighborhood jockeying for the same DSL connection and at least one of the pairs that they are wired to are kaput, but they just keep switching various people to the crappy one as the last one complains enough to get a truck rolled on it, at which point they hook the complaining customer up to a clean line and move someone else over to the bad one, which buys them time while THAT person goes round and round with stupid and useless phone techs after they call to complain about half speed and dropped connections, and they send another truck out to look in the manhole, ad inifinitum. I don't have time for it anymore. Today and last night spent all my time troubleshooting my connection because I needed my laptop out with me to help guide me through fixing my car, and at this point I would have been done with the car (which still I have not yet started on), had I actually been able to get online to get to the how to info.
Happily, yesterday the Time Warner fella was out at my neighbors house, and I stopped him to have a little chat. I will be having my drop repaired this afternoon to facilitate my free install of my new service which will be more than twice as fast as my elite DSL connection at about 2/3 of the monthly cost INCLUDING the equipment rental, which I will hap pily pay for a month just so that I can switch NOW and I will buy a modem of my own in the next coupleweeks. The motorola one that works with TWC is about the same price as this horrendous Netgear fodder with much more functionality and reliability, better features and is highly recommended. AND I can use my magic Jack that the Netgear one won't work with at all. YAY- I will be able to make phone calls again from my house!
I can't wait. Should have done this much earlier and would have if I had known that TWC would be out here to fix that drop in less than a day. I hope At&T will take back their modem and not end up charging me for it, cause otherwise its going straight into the garbage. I wouldn't even feel right about selling it to some unsuspecting ebayer who did not know any better...
