Works well - 08/03/2013 22:21:12

Rating: 5 of 5 Stars! [5 of 5 Stars!]

Super cheap and works well. Compatible with Execulink. As pointed out elsewhere, this is just a modem. If you have only one computer, you can connect your computer directly to the modem, and use PPPoE on the computer (assuming that your ISP requires PPPoE, which almost all do). If you have more than one computer, you'll also need a separate router or wireless router to connect all your devices. Unless you have one of those rare ISPs that use bridged connections, the router must support PPPoE or the combination will not work. For a little more money, you can get the TD-8816 (also available here), which supports PPPoE natively, so that your router doesn't have to. Or, for even more money, get the TD-8840T, which includes four ports (so that you don't need a separate router at all), or the TD-W8961ND, which adds wireless, and so on. Super-geeks like me just manually configure their computer to act as a router. This device is perfect for that since it has no unnecessary router functionality.

The TD-8816 has much better logging and diagnostics screens, including graphs of connection status and traffic levels over time. The price difference between the 8616 and 8816 is very small. For most people, I think the 8816 is a better deal. The extra diagnostics are a huge help in troubleshooting. I don't need them myself, because I know how to get all the information I need from the command line on the host computer.

I think this is an excellent and reliable device for the price but be aware that it is bare bones in functionality. It does one thing only (ADSL modem connectivity) and it does it well. If you're looking for this function alone and no other, then you've come to the right place. Otherwise, you should probably move up to at least the TD-8816 to get the user-friendly diagnostics screens.

Good at what it does - 05/28/2011 12:26:25

This is a dedicated ADSL modem only. It is NOT a router, so you need to setup the login process on the computer or setup the router to login. However, it is good at being a Modem. It reduced my ping from 30 ms to 10ms on, so it is definitely better at being a DSL modem than the one my ISP gave me. Considering the amount of heat this dedicated unit generates, I'm not surprised that the modem/router combos work at a slower rate so they do not overheat. Two dedicated units (modem + router) will allow each one to work at maximum efficiency.

The shell feels weak, but that is mainly due to the heat ventilations required. I would prefer a well ventilated shell than one that requires a fan.

Works well. Does its job well. Get it only if you know what you are doing. If you have a dedicated router already, I would recommend ditching the modem/router combos provided by the ISP and use this instead so you do not have to mess around with the combo unit's bridge mode settings.

Works great with Sympatico - 09/25/2010 01:10:34

Rating: 4 of 5 Stars! [4 of 5 Stars!]

My internet connection suddenly stopped working 3 days ago. I bougth this modem. The tech came today and the reason was that some one had hugely increased my speed and the 10 year old modem could not handle it. (it was mistake) He lowered the speed and exchanged the old modem-router combined but since it is G router i am going to return and use the modem with my old n router.

Looks a little fragile. However I have no desire to drop it.

An excellent deal based on 4 hours experience. I am buying another one soon as I see quite a few restocked ones on the self.
