I just picked up a Motorola 2210-02 modem for AT&T DSL. Unfortunately, I seem to be having connection problems now, and I'm having problems finding the proper firmware update to see if this fixes the problem. I'm hesitant to use the standard firmware package from Motorola, because it says that most of the time the provider uses a custom package. Anyone able to help?

Have you called your provider?

After doing a little bit of research, I found out that the modem I bought is a steaming pile of crap. Pages and pages of people with the same problem: It turns out that the thing has a really bad habit of overheating and basically going into powersave mode. I'm going to be taking it back tomorrow and see if I can find another Speedstream 5100. If anyone has a line on one, let me know.
