I wanted to order $14.99DSL in my area (06708) but the phone rep says that I can only get Uverse there.
She said that they have a promo for the same price (1.5mspeed) but I had to get their modem and a 1year commitment.
What modem are they shipping me? I need this service for a home automation/cctv system that is going to be direct wired (dont need wifi).
I need to find out if the device they send me if its a "router" can do port forwarding to an internal IP. I understand it is dynamic IP.

From the sounds of things the modem will likely be a Motorola NVG 510.
The NVG 510 does perform routing functions (but not for the 10.0.0.0/8 subnet, if that's important to you), and may be connected to wired (4 ports) and wirelessly. You can port forward a port through to an internal address of your choice.

That is unfortunate. Googling that moto modem shows that device does not have a good rep. Has it been updated with a better firmware lately?
Has anyone been able to ask for and get the PACE modem instead? That one seems to be better reviewed.
I would like to be able to just use a normal off the shelf DSL modem but the phone rep made it sound like this is not an option. :-/

maybe you can ask for the Motorola 3801hgv; that is the one Im using. I just use it for internet.
