This is a stable modem, but it's major shortcomings are twofold:

1) The Setup "Genie" will only work if you are not replacing a modem leased from the ISP.

2) The modem must be used in the upright position. It is prone to overheating if mounted on a wall or left horizontally.

These are the only reasons that this product doesn't rate 5 stats. I am not making excuses for it.....for the money there are modems that you won't run into the above issues. However, once set up properly this is a top notch and reliable performer.

If you are replacing an ISP provided modem, or sometimes another modem of your own, you will need to do a manual setup from the modem itself.

From the reviews, perhaps I can help with a general startup guide. For those with good knowledge of modems, you won't have any issues. For the rest:

To get started, get your login, and password to your DSL line itself(not the modem or router password) from your ISP. Sometimes it's just a login with no password.

Find out whether or not you have a static or dynamic IP address. You can call your ISP and ask, but you have a 50/50 shot of getting a correct answer. If you have a current internet connection, do the following before setting up this modem:

The easiest (and the most reliable) way to find out the type of ip address you have is to go to whatismyip.(com). Write down your IP. Restart your modem. Go back to the site. If the IP has changed, you have a dynamic IP. If not, you have a static address, and we will discuss that later.

Get the modem that you are replacing. Get the subnet mask and MAC address from the back of it(this can also be found in the network section of windows. Look under network properties).

Bought this modem to replace our Cisco 678 which finally died some 12+ years after being EOL'd. At first, everything seemed fine. Then we started noticing some periodic instances of not being able to get to arbitrary web sites. Only after doing an 'nslookup' or 'dig' on the web address would the browser (any browser) finally display the page. Whenever this happened, browsing to the site's IP address first always worked.

So, basically, it seemed like a DNS issue. That's when I noticed that the modem was offering itself as the DNS server via DHCP rather than the DNS entries entered into its setup that are from our ISP. Manually setting the DNS entries in the computers' TCP/IP configurations also alleviated the problem, but presented its own difficulties, namely that those DNS servers don't work everywhere, specifically at work.

My solution to that issue is to connect an old NetGear RO318 to it and have _it_ provide DHCP to the network. Now everything is working fine and both devices are addressable independently (and without having to make a direct connection like I had to with the ol' 678) since they're serving up different IP address subnets.

I looked on NetGear's website for anything that even begins to acknowledge the problem, but of course, came up empty. Even a Google search for "DM111PSPv2 DNS problem" yielded terribly generic and unhelpful results.

Bottom line, this modem has a fundamentally flawed DNS/DHCP server, but I can scarcely afford the time or money searching for one that does what it's supposed to. I honestly hope someone from NetGear sees this review and recognizes that, A) there's a significant bug in their product, and B) their technical support solutions aren't effective to the point that I'm writing this review rather than spending the time wrestling with their inadequate technical support.

This modem has been awesome so far...I dont know what all the negative reviews are about... Ive had a solid connection for about a month now and no issues. I have AT&T as my DSL provider (6mbps down 512kbps up). So far so good.

On purchase (from a brick-and-mortar vendor as an emergency replacement), I connected this modem to my home network and configured it easily. However, for the six weeks I've had it, it has dropped its DSL sync one to two times a day, taking multiple minutes each time to reconnect. This is disruptive and has cost me a good deal of time.

Netgear's email support offered a non-solution (re-flash the same firmware onto the unit) before suggesting I call the support line. After speaking with no less than four different people, Netgear installed remote control software on my computer--an overly invasive troubleshooting process--and, after more than an hour on the phone, adjusted one numeric setting (MTU). That was yesterday; today, the modem has dropped twice. Calling support today, the technician explained that I cannot request an RMA without going though the troubleshooting process once more; he was then obstinate in refusing to patch me through to a supervisor. Persistence paid off and I spoke with a supervisor; I explained the situation, he reviewed the case, and spoke with his supervisor. After another hour on the phone, I was sent back to the AVR menu.

I am sorely disappointed in Netgear's service; while I am sure this is little more than a manufacturing defect and not representative of overall quality--I've not had issues like this with any Netgear equipment in the past--I have purchased my last Netgear product.

I have ordered another manufacturer's modem and I will discard this device.

This has been $50 poorly spent; I would recommend investing a little bit more into a Zyxel instead of taking the chance.
