FWIW, I havea SpeadStream 5260 ADSL modem that I used with when I was a
DSL sub for SWB (in Dallas).  I had no problems.  It's not configurable
and has 1 button; on/off.  It works with DHCP- I have no idea what
technology US West uses.  I use comcast. I'd be willing to part with it
for little money.  If you're interested, contact me offline.

Be really good to your family and friends. You never
know when you are going to need them to empty your bedpan.
