Swapping a 3801 with a 3800

I purchased a 3800 Modem. I have Uverse internet only. If I want to swap the 3801 with the 3800 what is involved? Is it just plug n play? If I wanted to swap my exiting 3801 with another 3801 what is involved?

Thanks for the help.

What are you trying to accomplish by swapping a leased modem for another leased modem?

Plug and play for the most part. Remember you'll have a new SSID(Wifi Name)/Network Key, but all that information is found on the equipment itself.

Improve DSL performance and enhanced interoperability with a new VDSL2 modem.
Increase system performance with a dual-core processor (2Wire Denali).
Higher HPNA-over-coax speeds with integrated Copper-Gate 3210 chipset:
Frequencies used change from 12-28MHz to 12-44Mhz
Throughput changes from 84Mbps to 200Mbps
Common mode filtering improvements on twisted pair and coaxial interfaces, that reduce power noise ingress that impacts VDSL 2 performance on the 3800 RG.
Smaller, more compact industrial design, with a smaller footprint and black in color.
Improved two-prong power supply with a small improvement in noise mitigation.
Slightly re-designed base/stand
Lower cost.

These are the reasons why the 3801 is better than the 3800.

You just stated all the reasons why one would upgrade to the 3801 from the 3800, when the OP clearly stated he purchased a 3800 and wants to use it to replace a 3801.

The OP wanted to know what was involved. What's involved: You're going to plug the 3800 into the same wall jack (with the same cables), and then you're going to enjoy U-verse internet. However, please keep in mind the reasons I stated in my second post as the 3801 is better than the 3800 in some ways.

Better?
