Belay my last; the Motorola 2210 modem WILL work with a legacy PacBell fixed IP address. I was almost there last time, when I switched the modem to "bridged" mode. The remaining step, which I didn't do previously but decided to try today at the suggestion of our computer guru at my work location, was to then go back to my Mac's Internet setup screen and return to my Alcate...

Well, the good news is that I have obtained a wealth of information of settings that don't result in obtaining Internet access using my new Motorola 2210 modem. First, I found out that if I changed my OS10 network access from "configure manually" to "using DHCP," and then launched my web browser and ignored the "you are not connected to the Internet" warning, I could then ...

Update: It turned out that I had the wrong Radio Shack line splitter; I had a 4-wire splitter, whereas I needed the 2-line splitter.

As I mentioned, I have a legacy fixed IP ad...

akee: Thanks for your reply. The Motorola modem came with a nice green colored phone jack cable that I swapped out with my original, somewhat shorter gray cable that I had been using to feed my Alcatel modem, and the Alcatel modem locked up using the Motorola modem provided cable.

I have had my Alcatel 1000ADSL modem since November 1999; it continues to work fine for my AT&T (originally PacBell) DSL, which I have also had since 1999. I have a legacy fixed IP address. I thought that perhaps a modern-day modem would improve my Internet speed, which varies between 600 kBs and 1,000 kBs down and about 300 kBs up. So, I ordered a Motorola 2210-02-1022 mo...
