Hello. Looking at starting up new att dsl service. Found someone with a new in box att nvg510 modem and was wondering if there would be any problems buying it for the service if for example they owed money to att would it be blocked by att.
The main problem I see is knowing which modem to get. AT&T still sells ADSL, but U-verse HSI is either ADSL2+, or VDSL. Each requires a specific modem; with the U-verse modems further requiring an internal security certificate (included with the device) for the 802.1x authentication. Without knowing which DSL version you will be getting, buying a modem is risky; buy the wrong one and you won't connect to the Internet.--
