I’m canceling my BE contract and need to return the BE Box to them.

To configure a modem such as this on BE Unlimited, you need the following settings:
Type: 1483 Bridged IP LLC
Note that this is NOT PPPoATMWikipedia: The Point-to-Point Protocol over ATM (PPPoA) is a network protocol for encapsulating PPP frames in AAL5. It is used mainly with DOCSIS and DSL carriers. or PPPoEWikipedia: The Point-to-Point Protocol over Ethernet (PPPoE) is a network protocol for encapsulating PPP frames inside Ethernet frames. It is used mainly either: and, as such, doesn’t require a username/password.
Following this, you can then assign your router your issued static IP address(es), or set its WAN interface to use DHCP, if you have a dynamic IP.
My DSL-320B reports the cable status as being “Up” but the ADSL status as being “disconnected”. I assume that this is because it has not dialed a connection. It works fine, despite this.
My sync rates with the new modem are about what they were before:
Downstream Line Rate (Kbps) : 17301 Upstream Line Rate (Kbps) : 2342
My speedtest.net results show higher upstream than before, however this may just be the way the cookie crumbled with the speed test:
