Hello, I have an old SpeedStream modem which I am trying to configure . . . it will not unlock. How do I reset it so it is generic and can be configured to any ISP?
If you have a SpeedStream modem with Bell's firmware; the modem belongs to Bell Canada.
If your current modem is a 2Wire 2701HG-G; the 2Wire is the better modem. The 2Wire has better characteristics if there is noise on the line.
If, in the future, you choose to leave Bell Canada, Bell may demand the return of your current modem and the modem (s) that you previously haven't returned. The costs could be at least $100.00 for each modem not returned.
