Re: Do DSL modems go Bad?
I killed a Westell 6100 last year when the power went down.
There were storms in the area and although the weather in my immediate vicinity was fine I was still affected.
Pissed me off since the DSL modem, the phone modem and the router were on a UPS.
At the time I was using Verizon VoiceWing digital phone service so I lost that too.
I called Verizon on my cell and they shipped me one the next day.
The guy said it was out of the warranty period but they would replace it anyway.
I told him that I wanted to buy a spare and he said it would cost $50 and be charged to my account.
The spare came in 2 days and they never charged me for it.
It's all set up in bridged mode so I'm ready for another emergency.
