alternative modems to Mortorla NVG510

alternative modems to Mortorla NVG510

I find the Motorola NVG510 woefully inadequate and end-user superficial.

Are there alternative ADSL2+  modems  for AT&T Uverse  that  are less clandestine, and more adequately documented?

Some points  of contention:

1 - The command line interface (telnet) availability is controlled by a hidden form and you have to “hack”  the http exchange with the  modem  to enable it. Why would you  want the command-line interface ? Well, to enable a deeper logging level (among other things). 

2 - The documentation does not describe log entries . For instance,  does  “Affected tones”  refer to the total number of tones (upstream and downstream) impacted , or to a specific tones.

3 - The http protocol handler in the modem does not honor http persistent connections - It unconditionally closes the connection after an http response .

There is another modem that AT&T now offers for ADSL2+ U-verse, it's the Pace 5031.  However, I doubt if any of the issues that you have with the NVG 510 would be addressed by the Pace unit.
