TRENDnet modems with AT&T DSL

I recently got a new DSL modem, a TRENDnet TEW-435BRM. I had trouble getting it to work; the automatic configuration wasn't working. I searched around and saw lots of people having problems getting TRENDnet routers to work on AT&T DSL as well. After playing around with settings for a while, I did get it to work, so I thought I'd post here in case it might help others in the future.

The following settings work for me:
  • VPI: 0
  • VCI: 35
  • DSL Modulation: ADSL2
  • Connection method: Login, PPPoE
  • DSL Duplexing Method: LLC-BASED
  • Login name and password are my AT&T/Yahoo credentials
  • Connect Behavior: Keep Alive (Reconnect immediately)
  • IP Address: Automatic
  • DNS: Automatic

Mine worked with g.dmt instead of ADSL2. Any idea about
Bit swap (enabled?) SRA (Enabled?)
DSL modulation type?
Annext Type?

Hi Paul, I'm not sure about the other settings since I don't use the TRENDnet modem anymore as I've switched to U-Verse.
