I was foolish enough to think I could swap out my old blue modem
(from what ended up being DirectTV) with the white one from BellSouth
(naive, I know), and things completely fell apart for a day.
I figured the westell-as-shipped was designed to be plugged in directly
to a single machine, and if you want the connection-sharing stuff, you
were supposed to pay BS an extra $10 (or so) a month. Bah to that!
