Re: Speedstream 5100b hardware configuration

from sbc support article.

The estimated cutover date is January 23, 2004, but may occur a few days before or after January 23. Once the cutover occurs, all new or upgrading SBC Internet Members who order SBC Yahoo! DSL and want an Ethernet DSL modem will receive the EN 5100B.

As a note: New part number (060-E142-A01 versus 060-E141-A01 on the 5100A)

OK, by having the part number it gives us a way of determining which one it is.

Thanks for those part numbers. Ummm... The only problem is that the SBC eStore lists the 5100? as Item #12A-5100-501.

It indicates when the PPPoE session is up. So if you see the DSL light and no Internet then it probably represents one of the following: the session timed out due to a lack of LAN traffic, something interrupted the connection to the ISP or your userid/password information is wrong.

I think in the first two cases it turns off and in the last case it turns read.
