BellSouth and Netopia recommend 6.3.0 R7 or higher for several reasons:
The newer firmware ensures compatibility with the network protocols used by BellSouth.
The earlier firmware versions contain a character limit in the username so many customers unknowningly run out of space when using the username@bellsouth.net format.
    -Netopia Support Note CIR_100
    -Netopia Support Note CQG_037 (Updating firmware)
