Customer Questions & Answers

Customer Reviews

It was very easy to set up and works well.
The wireless range is great - we can take the laptop all over the house and it stays connected, and our WiFi Blu Ray player is streaming Netflix without a glitch.
All I had to do was enter her AT&T user account and password, configure security and all was good!

Good thing for Rick V's review below. Otherwise I would have returned this great router.

If you are a Verizon DSL customer, it is possible that you can't connect immediately to the Verizon DSL service due to the WAN IP Lease expiration issue Rick described below. However, after disconnecting the old Westell modem and waiting for a few hours, the lease on the WAN IP had expired and the Verizon server had issued a new WAN IP to the new router. From that point on the auto-configuration worked like a charm. My advice:
1) don't call Verizon customer service - they are clueless about this issue
2) don't call Actiontec customer service - they told me that the router just does not work with Verizon
3) disconnect your old modem the night before your new Actiontec shows up. That way you are ready to go immediately.

Also, Rick V mentioned below that the router does not support WEP incryption, but only WAP incryption. That is actually not correct since the "Advanced Wireless Set-up Option" allows you to select what type of incryption you want.

Now that that's out of the way I can summarize as follows:

- Set up is really easy and fast (even for Verizon customers, if you follow my advice)
- Range is great. My router is located on the first floor and I still have 54 speed on the second floor in the opposite corner of the house
- documentation is good
- configuration is very intuitive
- just with any other g routers, you can get interference from 2.4 GHZ cordless phones.

My SBC (Now ATT) 2Wire DSL Modem broke one night, and I needed a new DSL Modem STAT.

The store had three wireless DSL Modem-with 4 port switches, and after a while of deliberating, I choose Actiontec, over two slightly better known brands (zoom and diamond) I recognized zoom, from analog phone modems in years past, and diamond, from video cards in years past, but never heard of Actiontec.

I had no clear cut winner in my hand, but the ActionTec had a copyright date of 2008, the other two had a 2007, and the Package box info seemed very complete, so I figured newer is better, right? And I had 30 days to return it, so why not!

VERY HAPPY with my decision. Cannot comment on the Zoom or Diamond, so please do not infer that they are bad, but the ActionTec GT724WGR worked perfectly, and it took minutes to set up.

I was afraid that there was some kind of "secret" settings for my ATT DSL connection, and that a "generic" DSL Modem would not work.

I followed the very simple, and easy to follow instructions, and I was amazed that I was up and running in a few minutes!

The only tricky part, was that I had to remember my SBC user ID and password (NOT MY YAHOO id, but my SBC login id!)

While my primary job deals with computers, both hardware and software, and I have done this for almost 20 years, I have to say, that I needed NO EXPERT knowledge to connect the Actiontec DSL Modem to my pc and access the internet again.

It worked fine with my VPN connection to work, and I password protected my wireless access.

I get slightly faster internet speeds, but we are talking a few per cent, as ATT has the final say as to how fast my DSL connection is.

I bought this modem to hopefully get fewer connection crashes than the 2 ZyXel PK5000Z modems tried and failed by CenturyLink/Qwest.

This is a bit of a lengthy review, but it outlines how I finally got a solid connection.

I live way out on the line; 15,378 feet - and worse yet, right at the end of the line. Bad mojo. My provider is CenturyLink - formerly Qwest.

I was having all kinds of connection problems - but only during high traffic times like Friday night and Sat/Sun afternoons. One lazy CL field guy (Don A.) was angry at having to come out twice and tried to just condemn the line and get rid of me as a customer. On 2nd trip, he didn't come to the house at all and I was able to prove it. Never got a callback from his supervisor. Next tech Greg was a great guy and spent some time at the house.

4 different techs missed a loose connection on the "tip" wire - one of the two that comes up out of the ground. The connection nut was over a half turn loose. First tech was a really nice guy, but installed a phone line using metal staples. Wrong. Causes signal loss.

I tightened loose connection and installed a new CAT5e "home run" line myself using nylon cable clamps to reduce signal loss.

Next, everything you read will say to set this modem for PPPoE for Qwest. That is easiest... But one online tech wanted to try PPPoA saying that could help a lot. It failed twice and we went back to PPPoE.

I got stubborn a few days later and after trying and re-trying PPPoA, Qwest's DSLAM or whatever device or software finally switched over and allowed it.
