On the 5100 Efficient Modem, it means you are based off of a Remote Terminal for your ADSL. If you were fed off the CO it would work, but because of the way things are configured (SBC Telco owns the RTs), end-to-end doesn't through a Remote. Nothing to worry about.
reports that Speedstream 5100b modems that have been upgraded to firmware 18.104.22.168, and Speedstream 4100 modems with the same firmware now pass the ATM OAM end to end ping test even if connected to a RT. (12-21-2005)
