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
