Ncguy77 did you try talking to TP-Link support? They initially helped me with setting up both modem & router... they were great I never even delt with AT&T! I think I've called them three times in all (two to just ask questions) and always got to speak to English speaking tech help.

Maybe you have a bad modem? Besides my one drop before I had upgraded the router firmware mine has been solid (knock on wood).

I don't know that you can but don't think it's really necessary to get to the modem config page. There hasn't been a new firmware released for the 8616 in a long time so any bought today should have the latest.

Yep you're welcome I'm closing in on a week without any issues with my TP-Link TD-8616 & Archer C7 combo. I'm sure updating the firmware on the C7 made things more stable since my one drop. Hopefully this thread can help others looking for an alternative to AT&T modems/routers.

Ncguy77 sorry for the confusion but when I said tech support was very supportive I meant TP-Link tech support. I have no idea how helpful AT&T tech help will be if I have any issues but they did tell me in a chat any ADSL modem should work with their DSL. It was just finally time for me to take a different approach since I hadn't been having any luck with their routers. E...

Ncguy77 I didn't end up getting the DGND3700 I can't say why but just decided to try a separate modem & router. If what I got doesn't pan out I will probably go ahead and try the DGND3700. I bought: TP-Link TD-8616 modem http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0034JSYZ2?psc=1&redirect=true&ref_=oh_aui_detailpage_o03_s00 TP-Link Archer C7 router http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B...

Actually I've already diagnosed my issue the modem in my Netgear 7550 is not working correctly. My desktop PC is connected to it and I'm not able to load web pages on a consistent basis. It will load a web page and then a minute or two later it won't, then it will load again, on and on it goes just like this constantly. I was told on another forum to try to reach my Netgea...

Thanks but I'm not interested in anything AT&T sells as I've have nothing but trouble with Netgear 7550 & Pace 4111N. Doing a chat with AT&T guy said any ADSL modem would work so guess I'll keep looking.

Can anyone help me with this? I need a list of approved or known to work 3rd party (1) modems, (2) modem/routers for AT&T DSL.

Well the main reason is all the problems I've had with their Netgear 7550 & Pace 4111N and have had for years despite calling tech help many, many, times with no solution. Service Tech has even been to my house more than once but they know little they're solution is to always just replace the modem rather than trying to figure things out. AT&T always say everything checks ...

Yep definitely have AT&T DSL I live in a rural area and we can't get U-verse. I've had nothing but trouble with both AT&T's modems the Netgear 7550 & Pace 4111N so wanted to try something hopefully better. Do you think the Netgear DGND3700 is a pretty good modem/router like if it's stable and pretty much trouble free? Do you know of any better compatible modems better than...
