I am Working on setting up a netopia R9120-xl

Device to the customer new Time Warner Telecom service they use a Lucent ready connect device they

just connect a cat5 patch cable from it to the network switch then setup the workstation IP.

The Time Warner telecom tech said he could find no reason why the unit do not work, he said most of there clients use you Pix 500 series devices.

If I need to get them I will, but I must be sure

they will work .

Any help would be great Thanks Jeff Masters
