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 .
