2310 vs. 3600hg-v I have a 3600HG-V right now with internet only and am wondering if there is any benefit to the motorola unit.
From what I've read, it is supposed to be a modem only and yet still has that pseudo-bridge mode thing. and the latency is also similar because of interleaving. I also know that the 2Wire has better line diagnostics(useless for me as I just fixed my line.)
So what's the deal with it?
It (Moto 2310) is smaller, and it is a modem-only device (one ethernet port). It only supports internet -- no U-Voice VoIP nor IPTV
The uvrealtime tool does not work with the 2310
But it also does not the built in router settings to mess with. You can pass the public IP to a 3rd party device, but you can also do that with the Pace/2Wire 3600. But there is still no "true" bridge mode -- the Moto 2310 still does the authentication & connection

ah makes sense. i wonder if the certificate were to somehow be ripped out of the firmware would it be possible to use a generic VDSL2 modem.
in any case, it sounds as if the 2Wire unit is a better deal. Unless the 2310 has some nice features like > 1024 connections or a better firewall.

Seems to me 2310 is what I want!
I have a DD-WRT based router and would never give it up. The HGV3600 is way too large and comes with its big honking power brick.
The question is how could I request for the Motorola 2310?
You can try a search on eBay/craigslist (3rd parties)
Otherwise, you can try scheduling a technician visit for the change, but not all techs carry the 2310, and the tech visit will probably be billed as well if the tech does have it
Generally phone support will not be able to handle the request. Technically the 2310 is supposed to be for business class customers, but it works on residential as well

No luck! Very few people are selling it locally and only 2 eBay sellers. Both want about $75. I would rather get it from AT&T directly. If only they let me choose...
