I have had similar good luck with the netopia. The setup menus are
pretty easy for when you are in a hurry to get the thing going. I
booted one a week or two ago and it has been running fine. Except for
the fact that it crashed one night. I saw a message in the log about
a GP fault. The device warm-booted and came up OK. I heard there was
a firmware upgrade, but I haven't gotten to it yet.

I have been having loads of trouble with the Adtran product. I'm not
sure who is at fault, but I'm inclined to stay away from it. Some of
the ISPs around me have said plainly that they wouldn't support the
adtran devices. However, these same folks wouldn't support the cisco
ISDN router box.
