Background

I've wanted to have a way to test my ADSL service other than the web page that's associated with the at&t 2-wire modem
On eBay they have been to expensive to make any sence, but this one [Title: HARRIS TS-1000 ADSL TEST SET (25700-019) ] in working condition was just over $100 and so appeared to be a good deal.  BUT. . .  it comes without the test leads and the manual does not illustrate the test leads or have nay information on how to make them.

4 each AA battery power & 8P8C test lead connector
16x4 LCD with backlight.

Test Leads

Not required.  Just plug phone cord into testset.

Operation

After Power On the first screen is:
Main Menu B:100%
*Select Test
 System Config
Press > to start

But pressing (v) down arrow scrolls the list and shows Set Mode.

System Config shows the versions:
Appl. Ver. 1.24
Modem Ver. 1.6.25

Set Mode has this menu:
+Alcatel Mode
+ANSI Mode
+G. DMT Mode
(and scrolling down)
+ G. LITE Mode
+ Multi Mode
(the bottom line says: Press -> to remove)  What does that mean?


I pressed the right arrow to select test and get this screen:
*Run Alcatal
 Run ANSI
 Run G.DMT  (this is the protocol for the at&t 2Wire DSL modem)
Press > to start
(and scrolling down)
Run G. LITE
Run Miltimode
Press > to start

Pressing down arrow to select Run ANSI then pressing right arrow gives:

19 Nov 2014 - The at&t 2Wire modem is not working, some of the time only the power light is on.
at&t tech support says the modem is 6 years old and bad.
Michael also said the local wireless network should work even if DSL has failed.

Checking with the Harris TS-1000.
Here is a list of the possible tests and the associated result:
