I recieved my Netgear DGND3700 on Monday. Installation was a snap. I am running 1.17NA firmware, this required an upgrade. The DSL connection has been stable all week, as well as all wireless connected devices. So far, I would recommend this modem. Unfortunately its not cheap at $180. But with the refund from AT&T on my 2701, its like getting it for $80. It also fixed my WPA2 problems and allows me to separate my G network from my N network since its dual band. So far a great device, but time will tell. I'm so happy my 2wire is back in a box!

Sources have told me that the 2701 and other "legacy" gateways and modems are being replaced due to the need to support the IPv6 requirements that are being pushed out as we consume all the IPs available in a IPv4 world. The 2701 has been in the field for almost 5 years and pretty solid for a gateway this old, yes modern day apps like WOW and others have maxed out the modem's capabilities it sounds like, but these apps and such were not there when it was built. It is a lower cost gateway and that is what AT&T wanted then my source told me. I also heard that the 2Wire or Pace as they call themselves now also have a N gateway with extra memory and mutiple processors for todays users coming out or ready to be sent out. Guess we will see it whenever AT&T lets it out into the streets.
Never a dull moment, if there is there will always be drama to replace it..

Yes Pace has confirmed that the 4111N for adsl is out and about, Mr. Chun Pace directror of marketing replied.
Is there any info from AT&T where and when and what this device is in an available model (it is not at at&t/equipment although was rumored to go on there Nov 1. Thank you!

I'd be careful that the Pace Router isnt just another 2Wire... they are the same company now. I believe AT&T is also qualifing a Netgear product. I'd go with the Netgear if you get a choice.

Great news, AT&T hardware added them (4111N) to the page for sale today!

Someone sent me a message earlier today asking if the pace 4111n is a gigabit ethernet router as well. I don't have the correct answer at this time but I will advise when I have that answer in more detail.

let me find out from the product people, cause I have heard yes and no.

Neither is the new Netgear/Westell per the spec sheet on the ATT site..

ok, according to my sources the new pace units will not have 10/100/1000 but just 10/100. As well as most of the netgear units I confirmed are 10/100 as well. This one isn't much of a shock to me as I have my own gigabit ethernet router and my dsl runs through just the modem. I haven't seen any really good quality gigabit ethernet routers hit the market either. The one I was considering (a linksys e4200) apparently gets bad reviews with the router giving out after only owning it a year.
dd-wrt and even m0n0wall has a listing of gigabit ethernet cards they will support. part of me kind of wants to go that route, or see if dd-wrt (x86 version) goes that route.

Wow, wish I would have searched google for the answer to my att 2wire modem recycling a couple months ago when I first had issues. I've had a tech out 4 times and each time it's working fine for them. Always thought the issue was related to signal or on their end. Just read this article and tried turing off/on the wireless on my iphone. As soon as I turned it on and watched a Youtube video the modem cycled off and on! I remembered that I had recently turned up the power setting to try to remedy our Wii not always connecting wirelessly. So I turned it down from 10 to 5 and that fixed the problem. Found that I can turn it to 8 and it looks like its not having any issues. I used the inSSIDer software to verify that channel 5 was not being used by anyone else. Thank you for your help!

cool, glad it fixed yours. truthfully if the signal isn't that strong in a certain part of the house, I would get a cat5e wire and set up another access point.
I have been looking into one of these to replace an AP that has been giving me problems for a while now. This would work for the 2wire as another access point and you could mimic your 2wire and have essentially the 2wire signal penetrate more of a home structure that may not be the most wireless friendly. One cat5e cable placed correctly and in the weak spots can make all the difference in a wireless network.

David: AT&T's specs for the Pace 4111N just read "high powered". Would you say that is equal to N150, N300 or N600 "high powered". Also, is the above rumor of AT&T selling the DGND3700 true to your knowledge?
