Thread: DSL Modem

  1. #1

    Post DSL Modem

    I signed up for DSL through Verizon a few years back, and was sent a Modem from them. Now, I am experiencing frequent connection problems and Verizon is telling me it is my modem and they offered to sell me a new one.

    My question is, can I purchase any DSL Modem to use with my Verizon DSL service, or is their DSL service compatible with only certain modem brands?

    No, I've had similar problems with my provider and you can use different DSL modems as my provider uses Siemens SE 567 modem or the 2Wire modem which I can't use because they are not compatible with some other hardware I'm using. I had to use the Speedtouch
    516v modem but it's running very hot and starting to disconnect after installing a new Buffalo WZR-HP-G300NH router so I read a lot of reviews and found the DLink DSL 2540B
    modem has high reviews. Oddly enough I see it listed here on this website as a router which it isn't, just go to Dlink's website and you'll find it is a DSL 2/2+ modem.
