New DSL modem

So, I've been having connect issues with my DSL.
Repair tech says line looks great.
Since problem got noticible after line speed upgrade,
and since I had a WesTel 2110 (old) modem,
The tech recommended we swing by the office and pick up a new modem.

So, we did, and we got a WesTel 6100.
This is about a quarter of the size, and includes a decent function router.
We'll see how it works, but I like getting PVC stats:
Transceiver Revision:
Vendor ID Code:            4
Line Mode:                 G.DMT Mode
Data Path:                 Fast

Transceiver Information	Down Stream Path 	Up Stream Path
DSL Speed (Kbits/Sec)		7168			896
Margin (dB)			20.0			10.0
Line Attenuation (dB)		16.5			11.0
Transmit Power (dBm)		19.7			11.9
That's a pretty decent connection.

Anyway, I'm still configuring port mapping.
