When I signed up for DSL, my vendor (AT&T) shipped me a free DSL modem. While the provided modem worked most of the time with a computer, it did not reliably run with a router attached. I reconfigured it for a bridged mode and that seemed to improve. However it was still slow, slow to connect as it did not seem to keep connected. The documentation was very dated, with nothing updated on the Internet. The support for that modem really didn't exist from the vendor either. However when I purchased the Actiontec modem after reading the reviews, I was hopeful that it would solve my DSL reliability concerns. When it arrived, I simply followed the instructions which really consisted of plugging it up and turning it on. It self sensed my AT&T vendor by configuring the DSL network settings and began to work. I did nothing. It just worked and is still working. Much faster than the old modem too. I have to say that this new modem looks a bit cheap and flimsy, but it is not and it works beautifully.

Replaced my 9-year-old Alcatel 1000 modem sitting in front of a Linksys Wireless router. Works fine now, but here was my experience for the rest of you trying to avoid paying your service provider for the installation and an overpriced modem...

1. The Alcatel was so old that the physical wires in the RJ45 jack were different than was expected w/the new Actiontec (and apparently any modem more modern than the Alcatel). Thank goodness, an AT&T phone tech pulled that one out of some obscure corner of his head based purely on the flashing DSL light on the Actiontec, a modem he had never heard of. Took some wiggling around, but I managed to switch the wiring from the two outer contacts to the two inner, and got the DSL to sync.

2. The virtual circuit and virtual path settings were 0 and 35 by default on the Actiontec (not that I knew what that was before this exercise). The Alcatel wanted 8 and 35. Unfortunately, this is something set at the central office at AT&T, in my case specifically for the Alcatel. But it turns out you can change the setting on the Actiontec itself using their web interface, which I did. Reset it, and like magic, all four little lights glowed bright green, including the one saying I was connected to the Internet.

3. Sadly, the story was not over at that point. I could not figure out any way to get to the Internet. No gateway ping, no nothing. I finally figured maybe something was screwed up on the AT&T side. Sure enough, the next AT&T tech I talked to found that someone there had reset my account from a static IP address (something they used to hand out years ago) to PPPoE. They reset that back, and I could connect.

4. Next adventure: getting it to work in front of my Linksys router.

I was in need of DSL modem to go with a Linksys WRT54GL router I had just purchased to replace an old 2-Wire wireless router/DSL modem combo. I called my carrier, Centurytel, to see about buying a modem and was astonished to learn that they no longer sell the modems, they lease them to the tune of three dollars a month. It doesn't take a rocket scientist to figure out what a rip-off that is, so I thanked the agent for his time and hung up the phone.

I read an Amazon review of the Actiontec modem from another Centurytel user who described how well it worked, so I decided to take the plunge and order one.

I decided to try the modem by itself first without the Linksys in case there were problems. They would be easier to isolate this way. I ran the guided setup program and had the modem working in no time flat. The guided setup was a little confusing at one point with two choices for Centurytel in the menu. There was no explanation for what the difference between the two was. After some testing I found that option 1 connected and option 2 did not, so the choice then became clear.

After testing the modem by itself, I reset it to factory defaults to prepare it for connection to the Linksys. (I probably didn't need to reset, but I wanted to start fresh.) I changed the VC settings to 8/35 to match Centurytel's requirements and set the modem up for bridging. I connected it to the Linksys and configured the Linksys for the internet connection. I was able to establish a connection on the first try.

The Actiontec/Linksys combination has been working for several days now without the slightest hitch. Performance is very good, as close to the advertised speed of my DSL connection as one could expect.

I bought the Qwest-branded version of this modem as part of a DSL package. Used it continuously for over a year and a half. Unfortunately Qwest's infrastructure in our neighborhood is getting old and our house is quite far from the central office so the signal started getting too weak. Even our voice service was sub standard for a while. We eventually switched service providers but it wasn't because of the modem. the Actiontec GT701 kept on working through thick and thin.
Used it with a wireless router connected. There are lots of configuration options so it can be a little intimidating if you're not familiar with networking.
