A good modem but haven't heard to much about it. Using your own will save u on rental fee's each month.

As far as hooking it up, it's real easy, plug it in and call your isp and tell them you want to register that modem's MAC address and in no time your surfing the webs.

You don't need them to come to your place, you can do this on your own.
Plug in the power and data cables, get on the phone with isp and tell them you want to activate a modem and they will ask for the MAC address of the modem which will usually have a lable mac; xx.xx.xx.xx.xx

It really is that simple.
