Product Description

From the Manufacturer

This Gateway's modem engine is ready for the future. It can be upgraded to ADSL2, the new DSL standard that enhances modem performance by tripling the available bandwidth (from 8 Mbps to 24 Mbps). Say goodbye to stuttering, pixilated video streams and the endless wait while downloading large files. There's more room for voice data, as well, so you can offer low-cost Internet telephone conversations. And since the upgrade to ADSL2 can be done remotely, your customers won't need a Ph.D to get themselves up to speed.

To help with setting up the Gateway, Actiontec has developed our ground-breaking Installation Buddy. A step-by-step visual setup guide, the Installation Buddy provides simple, straightforward instructions for procedures that were once the province of IT professionals. Now, you can eliminate most of the confusion inherent with installing DSL modems or gateways. With this Wireless DSL Gateway, your customers will get it all: flexibility, simple installation and trouble-free operation.

I got a second one from Verizon and it was DOA.

Verizon tech support no help at all, and there's no firmware update - or so they told me.

I have to turn power off and back on every 20 minutes or lose internet connection.

I bought this when getting Qwest DSL. The only problem I've had (so far) was on Qwest's side, where my phone wasn't wired for DSL when they said it would be. A (free) service call by a tech. fixed that very quickly.

As far as the modem itself goes, everything works. I've tested the ethernet ports and they get approx 100mbs. I also enabled the wireless part and got a 4-bar signal on my laptop three rooms away. Wireless was about 11mbs. The documentation was a little thin on how to set it up, but the Qwest hotline walked me through it. The modem also included a short sheet for configuring wireless.

UPDATE: I had been using VPN with my dialup service. When I got DSL, VPN would no longer work. The users guide said to contact Qwest to enable VPN pass-through, but they were not helpful. They suggested contacting Actiontec, where it was suggested I contact a group that charges per call. I decided to poke around somemore, and discovered that turning the modem Firewall Security setting from "low" to "off", VPN would start working. You'd think that somebody would have known about that...

UPDATE: This modem usually works fine for weeks at a time, but once in a while it loses its internet connection. This prompts a troubleshooting wizard to pop up. In my experience the wizard doesn't usually fix anything, and sometimes makes things worse. The best thing I've found is to turn the modem off, wait 10-20 seconds, and turn it on again. This reboot usually gets the "internet" light on the modem to turn green in about 30 seconds. I think the problem is on the Qwest side of things.

UPDATE: The problem of dropping the internet connection seemed to be happening more frequently. The modem firmware was W04; I found version W06 on the Qwest website and decided to upgrade to see if that would help. This was a mistake, as the upgrade process hung & rendered the modem useless. DOH! I now have a new modem, and will see if that helps.

I received this unit for free from Verizon. Previous to this was using a Westell DSL modem. I never had any problems with the Westell, however I have to reboot this unit about once every 3 to 5 hours because it drops it's WAN connection. Most of the time the LAN connection stays so I can transfer files between my PC and laptop but I cannot access the internet. Usually a reboot fixes things. All in in all I say buy a linksys or another reputable brand. While not total junk, this product seems to have it's issues as evidenced by the amount of users here expiriencing the same problems as I have. Strangely enough all of these users seem to be using Verizon DSL. Hmmmm.....

Update:
I had logged into my Amazon account today and just happened to see this review I had posted sometime ago. I figured I would update it. Shortly after I posted this review in 2006, I came home one day to the smell of burnt electronics. I immediately checked my PC, it was fine except it had no internet connection. Sure enough this unit had died. I got a second one from Verizon and it was DOA. That was all I needed, I went back to the Westell DSL modem and bought Linksys WRT54G for a wifi router. Ever since then have been very happy. I rarely if ever have to reboot my router and it works great! If you are considering this unit please take my advice and try something else.

Of the two Actiontec DSL modems I've purchased, each has failed after about one year of service. They work fine when they work, but they don't seem to work for very long.

I got this for Verizon DSL service - but since first day, it needs to be rebooted every few hours. Sometimes, IM or Skype will still work, but email and web browsing just hangs. Verizon tech support no help at all, and there's no firmware update - or so they told me. Read online that others have same exact issue. I wouldn't recommend until there is a fix to this need for reboot two or more times a day.

4 of 4 people found the following review helpful By Mrs. P on May 22, 2006
Pros: easy to set up and use, wifi was compatible with all of my various client cards.

Cons: had trouble with it up until it broke--unrepairable, after 2 years of use. Wifi range is just okay (tested w/ multiple client cards.) Speed was much, much slower than my Cisco 675 (using the same DSL provider and ISP.)

I would not buy it again and am looking for an alternate brand for replacement.

I have been using this modem for about 1 year. I print wireless from anywhere in my home from my laptop. I have not had any problems either on my desktop or laptop. I would highly recommend modem to anyone.

I received this router from Verizon to upgrade my system after a lightning strike. What a mistake. The router will not stay connected to the DSL service. We have 3 computers hooked to the router. Two via wireless card and one cabled directly to the modem/router. Two with Windows XP Pro and one with Windows 98. All PCs act the same when connected to the network. After two hours of usage the power switch must be cycled on the router and the connection on the PC must be renewed. Customer support from Actiontec has been non-existent. Email replies from support offer the Actiontec salute by sending consumers to their DSL provider. After a replacement unit from Verizon performed the same way, I gave up. (Remember, these are the same people who have been awarded the hardware contract for Verizon's FIOS network. Looks like I will not upgrade to that service any time soon.)

On a positive note, I have worked the router into my exercise routine. Constant trips to the router to cycle the power switch have allowed me to spend less time on the treadmill and more time walking the halls of my home.
