Just ask that question and then call WindStream and ask if it's compatible.

Remember that a DSL modem has to be "fielded", "provisioned" which is tech talk for all the settings. No one here will have these settings but unlike cable modems I'm been able to swap in DSL modems (or modem router combination units) without activation by the ISP.

BUT THERE IS A PROBLEM THAT A NEW MODEM won't fix? What is it? If the strike took out the ISP's DSLAM board, you would have bought a modem and it will still be dead.

Any chance of using a smart phone as a hotspot for a while?
