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?
Good afternoon all!! My mom had a terrible lightning storm at her house today and now her router doesn't work. No power at all. She called Windstream and it is going to be 5-7 days before she can get another one. She lives on her computer when she's not saving babies at the hospital. My question is, can she purchase another router at say, Best Buy or another electronic dealer that she would be able to use with her internet? The router that she currently has is a Sagemcom DSL model F@ST1704N. Thank you in advance for your assistance!
