Top Customer Reviews
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.Read more ›
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.Read more ›
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.
