Good modem in a bleak market Let’s be honest, there isn’t much diversity in the market for dsl modems. After trying 2Wire’s that have poor network functions, Motorola’s that don’t stay connected, and Netgear’s that fail after 6 months I decided to give this D-Link a try. It came with an install cd which I of course chunked and used the web interface so I can not tell you about the install cd. The web interface has a, “quick setup” menu which avoids a lot of technical network terminology but still had a ton of options in other areas including DHCP and NAT functions so you don’t necessarily have to have a separate router to use it with multiple computers. It was very easy to bridge with my existing router (which was the only way I could figure out to get the modem to stop blocking ports and let the other router handle it) and did not have the connection issues Motorola’s seem to have with a bridged router handling the login info for your internet service. If you need help configuring it D-Link provides a 800…

Detailed Statistics I was having slow DSL performance and wanted to replace a Verizon provided DSL modem with something that could show me at least my DSL line was running well. My criteria was to find a DSL modem that supported the later standards (ADSL2+ Annex M, etc), at least have some sort of recent support (datasheets or firmware dated within past 2 or 3 years) and have full statistics. As another reviewer mentioned, there’s not a lot to choose from overall.This modem fit the bill for me, it has detailed WAN, ATM, ADSL statistics that at least showed me my local loop was clean. It supports OAM and BERT tests.There doesn’t seem (as of this review anyway) any firmware updates from DLink, so whatever is loaded is basically what you get. It seems likely this is because there is some country specific firmware.The manual shows settings for Internet Time (NTP) which is missing in my firmware and can’t set the time, This is a little annoying when looking at the…

Rock Solid I bought this DSL modem to replace a Westell 327W DSL modem/wireless G router that I got when I signed up for my Verizon home DSL six years ago. We live in a rural area and are toward the end of the recommended distance from the switching station for a DSL line. The Westell was very unreliable and would drop out the connection to the internet regularly and often needed to be re-booted to reconnect. It was especially bad when the weather was less than a perfect sunny day. This unit, the 520B is rock solid. I have had it for about a month so far, during which time we have had severe rain and thunderstorms – including lightning strikes – and it has not even skipped a beat. The unit was easy to install with the included software and it automatically self-updates via the signals sent from your ISP so it is a true “set it and forget it” kind of device (as it should be), but access to manually configure the unit is great also should you ever need it. The VPN pass through feature is…
