The links to the manuals are all broken. Apparently RCA has dropped support for this product line.

Thomson Multimedia also does not have support for the product.

I have uploaded a copy of this product's manual to my site....

It includes both the Owner's Manual and the Troubleshooting Guide in PDF format.

These things are old and pretty much junk, don't buy one and if an installer shows up with one from your ISP throw a fit about it.

Chances are if you have one it has already overheated & 'burned-out' by now anyhow.

I've had one for many years and its been essentially problem free. I use the Internet daily.
