I have a few spare ADSL modems and I know there is no updates for them. Wonder if they would work on their system down there? Assuming it is ADSL (and the owner can put the modem in bridge mode) I wouldn't see why it wouldn't work.
Least then I could get rid of a few spare modems I have. I have like 2 2210's, 1 4100, 1 5100b... I had a 2701HG-B 2wire till I gave it to a friend. I have ended up with these either I got for say $10-20 at the time or gave to me for testing a while back.
