    i bought the Motorola 3360, and i was trying to connected it to my labtop but it was having issues. when i'm trying to open up a page it show us the following message (and it's at the motorola at&t IP page):

    The Motorola 3360 device has detected potential problems with your DSL connection which may impact your service. the problem is often caused by a phone or other device which is connected to your phone line 9such as a fax machine, satellite receiver, alarm system or medical monitor) that does not have a DSL filter.

    out telephone line is also connected to a fax machine/phone but i have a dsl filter plug into the phone jack and it lead out to two jack holes, one for the internet line that connects to the motorola modem, one for the fax machine. I thought that would solve the problem but it didn't.

    so you have a DSL enabled line - but its not logging into the service
    have you set the username password and other parameters correctly in the router
