What type of Internet connection you are using? As it will be difficult to change the Annex A to Annex B using firmware… AS Annex A is used for ADSL over PSTN and Annex B is used for ADSL over ISDN...

It is neither softwary nor hardwary possible to change the Annex version of the Gateway.
The Annex B is on an RJ45 connection and Annex a RJ11.
It is also strongly not advised to load the F/W of Annex B onto an Annex a version.
You have to use an Annex B DSL modem and connect it to the X3000 to the RJ45 WAN port, and then you will be able to set up an Annex B DSL connection.

Thank you for the help.
My actual modem is using RJ11. The internet connection is an ADSL, but my provider sais it is an annex B.
Information from my internet provider :
VPI - Virtual path identifier
VCI - Virtual channel identifier
PPP - Point to Point Protocol
LLC - Logical Link control
ITU, GDMT aut.
My modem is constatly overheating, so it would be great if I could make it work without the modem.

Well, you actually need the modem since your internet connection originally comes through it (which is why your internet service provider gave it to you)..

When i built my home network i wanted to buy the best ADSL modem, so i searched for linksys n found AM200. I knew my ADSL provider uses Annex B so i tryed to find the Annex B version of AM200 (AM200-E1). Never an earth found it, like it never exsisted outside Linksys broschures. (Checked webshops in the whole EU, phoned linksys HQ in my country) Finally i bought another brand
I have just checked ur new ADSL modem+router combos n u didnt write annex compatibility at features+specs. Despite its the most important information about n ADSL modem. As far as i know there is simply no way to use Annex A on Annex B, or vice versa. Using a linksys router with ADSL modem with a crap modem that providers usually supply is really a big waste.
SO please Linksys with sugar on the top, take this annex A-B issue much more seriously.
Otherwise i like ur products
PS: I have Annex B on a RJ11 cable...

I bought my WRT610N-EU V1 on october of 2009, n wanted to buy that ADSL modem then as well. Wanted a separate ADSL modem coz i dont like 2 in 1 stuff.

Annex A-B situation in Hungary: I am not an expert in this topic just made a small research. Both A and B present in country, depends on the region. As far as i know annex A region is bigger then B. A is mostly the western part of the country, B is in the eastern, prolly south-eastern part of country. Millions of ppl live in regions where ADSL is the only real option of internet connection. (Including some urbanized places)
My ISP supplied me with modem+router combo with 54 mbit wlan. Unfortunately it didnt support WPA2, and went wrong so i got rid of it. Then wanted that AM200-E1. Finally bought a D-link DSL-321B, which works fine with WRT610N. Just dont get one thing: I have to set up ADSL connection parameters in the router, cant access the modem. (eg: login name, password, mtu) So the router uses the resources of the modem somehow?
Other thing i dont understand: Is Linksys selling both annex a and b versions of all modem/routers in the EU? (X2000/X3000 and WAG serie) In my fav hungarian webshop there is a WAG120N annex B version while on linksys site it says WAG120N supports both annex A and B. At other modem/router's features&spec there isnt even a word about annex a-b compatibility. Some other webshop sells these routers without writing if its a or b. The whole thing seems to be a big mess of me.
One more question: Does this annex a-b thingie only count in early ADSL technology? I mean in ADSL 2 and above dont see any annex a-b stuff. Does that mean above simple "ADSL" it doesnt matter? (Devices work on both enviroment)
