Might be the wrong section but here goes.


I have ATnt Uverse (ADSL+2) and use the ATnT Motoralla 2210 modem.  I increased my speed and now the modem is not doing so well.  It maxes at 14Mbps and has only 8Mb of memory, so I am maxing it at 13.5Mbps.  I think Im getting into either a thermal issue cause its working so hard (tried air cooling etc) or the cashe is filling fast and the process cant keep up clearing it. 


In either case I have a lot of hard resets to keep watching items like Netflix or Plex. even at lower speeds and bandwidth usage.


So I got a Netgear modem, and went through AT&Ts setup steps, and talked to customer support.  Right now I cant get it to work.  The wizard wont even run and the Atnt servers dont want to talk to it.  But the motoralla works fine, when I switch


I am thinking one of two things.

1. My modems MAC etc. has to be registered with AT&T?  or

2. the rj45 cable they use for AT&t uses a different PIN placement than the netgear uses.  (netgear runs off of pins 2&3).


So, any advice out there guys?  Anyone know the pins Uverse adsl+2 (i know sounds stupid trust me) runs on?

Anyone else had luck getting just a modem to work with AT&T that IS NOT at&ts?


thanks in advanced yall




I ment RJ-11 NOT rj45, for the dsl cable (sorry about that) a phone cable NOT a ethernet cable


thank you
