With its support of dual band concurrent Wi-Fi (IEEE 802.11n 2.4 GHz and the next-generation IEEE 802.11ac wireless standard for the 5 GHz band), the C2100T is a powerful and future-proof smart gateway enabling high-speed wireless HD video streaming inside the home.

Furthermore, its advanced architecture guarantees a very low packet error rate on the wireless link, resulting in a 100% smooth and flicker-free wire-quality viewing experience. The C2100T offers VoIP functions for residential and business users. POTS phone connectors are provided to accommodate regular phones and faxes. Once the gateway is registered with a VoIP service, regular phone calls can be conducted over the Internet with all the benefits of IP telephony. The accelerating growth of WAN and LAN traffic is pushing usersto look to ultra-high-speed network technologies to solve the bandwidth crunch. VDSL2 combined with Gigabit Ethernet enables extremely high bandwidth and guarantees superior quality in voice, data and video.

EOL CL Modem that is has good value and performance. Had a very old Motorola 3347 DSL left over from Qwest before Century Link took over. It seemed to be showing its age. I looked at all of the CL’s “compatible modems list” and checked a lot of reviews. I could have spent more money, but in general, this modem seems to be known for good reliability and performance. Over my old DSL modem, this one seems to offer a slight increase in speed (5%-10%?) and handles multiple LAN requests better – I will assume this is a result of newer/faster hardware. I have only been forced to reboot it once (a Wi-Fi bridge got “lost”). While the modem does a fair amount of “auto-setting” on reboot, it takes a lot longer to make the DSL/ISP connection than the older modem.Bottom Line: IF you get this modem at the “refurbished” price and in good working order, this is a bargain. Just beware of these shortcomings:1. While the specs list a “USB Port” – you can plug in a USB 2.0 drive and the modem “USB” light will show up – CL has…

2.4 GHz quit working The product worked great for 11 months 28 days. The 2.4 GHz would no longer accept a password. I worked with Centurylink for 2 hours and they could not get it working. Wired and the 5 GHz is still working, but some devices only work with 2.4 GHz. Trying to get a replacement, if I’m brave enough. CenturyLink will not replace my modem due to it being shipped to Northwest Electronics on 1/8/18 and it crapped out on 1/13/19. I requested help from Northwest Electronics, however, they are requesting I return the item without providing a replacement to keep my internet working for the weeks they will have the unit. Update 1/15/19 – the modem router is a 1 star due to it crapping out at warranty end. However, Northwest Electronics is great! They are sending me a new unit to replace the one I have at no extra charge since they shipped it to me on 1/16/18. I will then send my partially working unit back after the new one is set up.

works great, arrived MUCH sooner than expected, by days (won’t happen every time, I’m sure) I didn’t want to spend over $200 to get a DSL modem from my network provider, so I purchased this used one instead for 1/4th that cost. It surprisingly arrived 2 days early, which was helpful. I messed up the setting initially and the password for wifi was different than the one printed on the case, but i was able to find the wifi password under wifi security when logged in as the modem administrator, whose password was on the outside of the case and was correct. So, dsl works, internet works and wifi works. Can’t ask for more, especially at this price.As others have said, there’s no written instructions in the box, so you need to have SOME experience setting up a DSL router and wifi, but it’s pretty basic stuff and you CAN find instructions on the internet for this model that you can follow. It’s not plug and play, you HAVE to do a small amount of setup to get it connected.
