New DSL modem
Josh 201604 KWP
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.

Well, I lied.

Under connection load (torrents) it bogs.

UPnP doesn't work. it shows up, then disappears. No adjustments to advertising.

Can't specify alternate DNS servers to push out with DHCP, only its internal piece of crap with 20 static entries.

I may have to set it to passthrough mode so I can use the linux box as a router again, but then I'm paying $2/mo for a DSL modem.
