A. There are currently two different provided equipment to choose from: 1. AT&T Gateway (2Wire 2701HGV-B) 2. Modem ((Motorola 2210-02-1ATT)

That Westell A90-610025 modem is used for Verizon dsl. Does this model will work fine with AT&T?

Sorry, mis-typed... It's an F90-610025

Are you sure this modem will work with this system? This is not typical adsl and as far as I can find this modem does not support IP-DSLAM.

I don't think the Westell will work on IP-DSLAM. It's just another ADSL/ADSL2 modem as far as I can tell.

Currently the only Modem ((Motorola 2210-02-1ATT) is available fore the ATT IPDSLAM the gateway is for customers that are abel to get the whole u-verse package and only want the IPDSLAM Internet.

The FAQ needs an update: Max (12 down/1 up) and Max Plus (18 down/1 up) speeds are now available over IPDSLAM ADSL2+ U-Verse, as long as the customer lives close enough to the CO

Max 18 does require a tech install, though

For those on IP-DSLAM would this work, »www.amazon.com/gp/product/B004PA···i=507846 or be a waste of money to buy?

As always, it depends on what you want to do. Wireless "n" will give better range, by and large, so if you have trouble with the signal reaching throughout your house, go for it. If you copy files wirelessly among your computers for streaming video and music or just backups to a file share, it will be way faster. If all you are doing is using the internet, you are wasting your money.

What are you planning to use it for?

I am considering U-Verse, as I am kind of far from my CO (13,300 feet.) I cannot get very much speed on regular ADSL (about 2.5 down.) I am wondering a couple of things:

1. What kind of distance from the origination point (VRAD or CO?) is going to allow me to get the speeds advertised with U-Verse? I'm looking at the 12 down speed.

2. Why is a tech installation required if I go for the 18 or 24 down, but not if I got for the 12 or lower? What is different?

Thanks.

I watch youtube videos, upload youtube videos, I watch movies on Netflix on my Xbox 360, and play Xbox Live games along with regular web surfing too.

Got it, you are only using wireless to access the internet. In that case, I'd save your money unless you have poor coverage in your house.

I do backups wirelessly within my house, among other file sharing, to a shared network disk, and the "n" speed makes a big difference, so it was worth it for me.

I forgot to mention that I download contents from the Xbox Live Marketplace too. Some of these downloads can be at least 1GB. My Xbox 360 is connected wirelessly to the router. I have a 2wire 2701HG_B. I also get disconnects when playing BFBC2 and it's the only game that it does that to.

Has anybody been able to go from interleave provisioning to Fast Path? Is it as easy as calling tech support, getting tier 2, and asking for it?

Additionally, would the following numbers be good enough? Generally, what should one look for in signal numbers such as the ones below for it to be good enough for fast path?

Rx Tx
140 Current Rate 5360 765
141 Previous Rate 0 0
142 DSL Max Rate 12688 976
144 Current ATTN DR 6200 1095
145 Current SNRM 3.5 12.4
146 Current LATN 48.9 31.0
147 Current SATN - -
148 Current TP 19.0 12.1

thanks!

Does anyone know if Max 12 requires a tech install?

What exactly does this mean? I just got IP-DSLAM, and never heard of this.

It is the DSL replacement. The new name is IP-DSL the marketing people did not like the SLAM in DSLAM. It may be from the CO or RT. They are now turning up RT IP-DSL everything is the same except the cards.

The main reason it to begin the process of turning the ATM DSL system down and changing to IP-DSL.

Max 12 doesn't. Max 18 does.

I'm still on ADSL and the highest I can get is 3/512 but say they put me on ADSL2+ is it possible that they can offer faster speed, or will it be the same as on ADSL?

What are the prices? Say I want to get Pro for $35, and no phone service, will that only be $35 or will it be higher?

For those that are on ADSL2+ will they eventually be on VDSL?

What the cap for ADSL2+ customers?

Did ATT phase out the 2Wire 2701HGV-B? I helped someone order Uverse PRO 3.0 and tried my 2Wire 2701HGV-B from a previous Uverse install. For some reason the 2Wire 2701HGV-B wouldn't sync but the newer 2Wire 3600HGV-B would.

urd89 were they IP-CO or FTTN HSIA only?

It is IP-DSLAM from the CO, they don't have Uverse TV here. I had used the modem for Uverse Elite 6.0 up till May from the same CO fine but all I got was flashing DSL light and "seaching for DSL signal" from the modem.

Only reason i ask is typically 2210 and 2701 modems are used for IPDSLAM and 3600 3800 and 3801 are for FTTN and FTTP. Although 3801's have a known defect atm for FTTP's.

Almost. The 3600 is only used for FTTN -- not on FTTP. It has no red "Broadband" Ethernet port to connect to the ONT. Only 3800s/3801s can be used FTTP

And the bug on 3801s for FTTP is being corrected, and it is only a bug for IPTV -- causes no issues with Internet or VoIP

If you have a 3600, it is VDSL2 U-Verse aka FTTN, not ADSL2+ U-Verse, aka IPDSLAM (which uses either the Black Moto 2210 or the Silver & Black 2Wire 2701)

1Mb is the fastest upload available to ADSL2+. The 1.5 Mb upload is only available to VDSL customers.

No Uverse customer can get 32/5 for internet. 32/5 is the total bandwidth for internet, TV and phone.

You're on the fastest package available for ADSL2+. VDSL customers can get up 24/3.
