So happy to be Sasktel Hardware free!

Strengths of the product

Capable of setting up on Sasktel (use VPI 8 and VCI 35). I did DHCP with DMZ setup to my router WAN IP address. Everything works. Follow directions in reviews as they work.

Weaknesses of the product

Who needs a software CD. I couldn't find an option to change the MAC address, but didn't need to.

Additional Comments

Why use a different modem you ask? It appears Sasktel locked me out of configuring their PACE modem, likely to mitigate data usage and maintain customer support job security. Tech told me, not allowed using other DSL modem, but what they don't know won't hurt. Pretend you are using their modem and be happy. Now I have access to all features on my own network equipment. Many thanks MEMX!

Sales says it doesn't work with TELUS... It does.

Strengths of the product

It's a modem. Simple as that. Nothing fancy, nothing complicated.

Weaknesses of the product

The bundled software doesn't work. When you get to the configuration page (192.168.1.1 default) go straight to advanced setup and follow the settings listed by Matt at the bottom of this page. My only catching point was that the modem and the router didn't want to play nice. Once I turned off DHCP on the router and allowed the modem to do it's thing, it went a lot smoother. Also, leaving the modem at the default LAN IP of 192.168.1.1 seemed to help. As did having the router (TP-Link) on 192.168.0.1

Additional Comments

Main point... Yes, yes it does work on Telus... Don't let anyone say otherwise. The salesman was *ADAMENT* that the telus service guys says it won't get assigned an IP... well, I'm typing this over a Telus connection using this modem... so there it is. I got this one for work. I'll be getting another for home. 1 star off because of the bundled utility.

It's a modem!

Strengths of the product

Does what it says on the tin Allows you to use a real router and put whatever awful hardware Telus is lending you in a box in a closet somewhere

Weaknesses of the product

-Comes with a massive orange sticker on it telling you to RUN THE SETUP UTILITY ON THE CD FIRST!!!!!1, which isn't actually necessary- I couldn't get it working using that utility in fact. And the sticker is kind of a pain to remove (it covers the vents on top as well as the LAN port, so you can't just leave it), it's not one of those newer plastic stickers that peels easily. -The config page is kind of clunky compared to more recent hardware, but it gets the job done.

Additional Comments

Mainly posting this to confirm for others that it still works with Telus, the other reviews stating it does are getting old so I was kind of unsure on that. It took longer to get that sticker off than to configure. I used the settings that Matt posted here. Works great. Some posts elsewhere tell you to register the new modem's MAC with Telus, this is NOT a necessary step. Just punch in the settings posted to this page.

Strengths of the product

Had a Belkin N600 Router, then Telus took away my speedtouch modem because it was toast, and told me all I could use was their modem/router in one. After three different ones, none of them played nice with my N600 even in bridge mode (reset everything every couple of days because the internet didnt work) I finally just used the router in the Telus modem. ... Then I found this. Works like a charm once it's set up. Recommend to anyone who wants a set and forget internet connection.

Weaknesses of the product

Built in Telus Settings don't work. I used Bridge Mode, LLC and 0/33 and took right off.

Strengths of the product

Replaces the crippled V1000H from TELUS. Although transparent bridge mode can be enabled on the V1000H so that it can function as a modem only, it is an annoyance. All I need is a modem as I have my own router so I can manage my own private/local network. This modem is exactly what I was looking for.

Weaknesses of the product

Some configuration required

Additional Comments

Although the salesperson at Memory Express insisted that this modem does not work with TELUS I was able to get this modem working with TELUS within 30 minutes. You do have to do a bit of configuration, it is not plug-n-play, but after that it works.

Yes, works with Telus

Strengths of the product

Excellent replacement for crippled-firmware-version-of-garbage-zyxel-modem-router-combo inflicted upon users of telus High Speed Internet.

Weaknesses of the product

May require repeated attempts to configure properly. Don't give up. Unknown compatibility with telus Optik packages.

Additional Comments

Facing disappointment that I couldn't use a quality router with a telus Internet connection, I searched for a replacement modem and found this gem. Excellent value for the price. Matt's review details properly configuring the unit but results in a double-NAT traverse, so I recommend setting the 'Connection Type' to 'Bridging' and allow your router on the local end to function as the firewall. It will register the MAC address of your router with telus and you only get a few device registrations.

Works with Telus Calgary

Strengths of the product

Nice small box, removes all the bulky hardware Mountable on the wall or network panel Better latency than with Telus router equipment Full speed up to 25 Mbps Can disable all firewall, qos, etc for complete pass through to router Can clone the MAC of ISP hardware if ISP locks that down

Weaknesses of the product

Can be confusing to configure for Telus DSL No guarantee this will work with future Telus upgrades

Additional Comments

To install for Telus use the following configuration (as of posting date): VPI: 0 VCI: 33 Service Category: UBR Without PCR Connection Type: MAC Encapsulation Routing (MER) Encapsulation Mode: LLC/SNAP-BRIDGING WAN IP Settings: Set them all to obtain automatically Enable NAT: check! Enable WAN Service: check! Service Name: Whatever you would like NOTE: You should be able to check these settings via the WAN http status page(s). RECOMMEND: Disable all features except for NAT, use DHCP
