First, it's a much older version of the modem I currently have. Because of this it appears to have a few minor flaws that may have been fixed by the GT701R. Nonetheless, there may be workarounds for these.
The second thing about this modem is that it's a Qwest-branded modem, with Qwest firmware. Qwest was acquired by CenturyLink several years ago, so I hope this does not cause a problem. However, the Qwest firmware does provide a QoS feature that may be useful for certain traffic management scenarios.
The one thing I required from this modem is a USB interface for the way I network my two computers - saves having to purchase an external router. And the external power switch is a plus - much easier than having to unplug and replug the AC adapter.
We live in the Midwest and have AT&T DSL high speed Internet service & a Netgear wireless router. My Toshiba Satellite has Windows Vista. Our Hewlett Packard desktop has Windows 98. We also access the Internet on our Playstation 3 to view Netflix instant movies. Our 2-yr-old Motorola 2210 modem had been overheating for 5 months. Even though we stood it on its side for cooling, we had to reset the Motorola several times daily.
I purchased this Actiontec DSL modem and installed it myself using the quick start guide. This modem does not have a power switch, so the step to turn the switch to "on" was skipped. Also, my Actiontec modem has two phone ports, not one port as stated in the startup guide. One is labeled "Line," & the other is labeled "Phone." When the phone line running from our phone jack was plugged into the "Phone" port, my download speed was hampered. I had to plug the phone line into the "Line" port to optimize my internet speed. The modem was not automatically recognized even when I bypassed the router & plugged the Ethernet cable directly into my PC. I had to use the Alternate Installation Guide, configuring this modem at [...] and setting my connection to PPPoE.
Now all Internet access is working as expected from my Toshiba Satellite, our HP desktop & our PS3 via the Netgear wireless router & this Actiontec modem.
My biggest gripe about this modem is that the CD set-up wizard was useless to me. In fact, it just wasted my time. I had to log in to the manual configuration control panel to set this modem up, and I don't think the CD goes into details about how to do this. The CD mentions an on/off switch, but there is no such switch on my model. Worse, the CD says that the phone line is supposed to be plugged into the "phone" jack on the modem. That may be true for some models, but on my model, I could only get it to work by plugging the phone cable into the "line" jack on the modem. The "line" jack is not even mentioned on the CD. Nor is it mentioned in the printed installation guide.
When I called tech support to explain the problem I was having getting the modem to work, the tech person did not mention the possibility that I needed to plug my phone line into the "line" jack. Later, when I called again and explained that I was still having trouble setting up the modem, the line went dead in the middle of the call, and the technician (in India I think) never called me back.
Oh, and one more little thing about this modem: It has a feature that logs Web activity, including Web sites visited. That may be just what you need to spy on your kids or your employees, but if you are uncomfortable with the possibility of others tracking YOUR Web activities, this may not be the modem for you. This feature apparently can be turned off if you have a little computer savvy, but I understand it will turn itself back on whenever the power is cycled off or the modem is rebooted.
For me, getting this modem to work was an hours-long headache. Much of the problem however probably had to do with me not getting the correct login and setup information from my ISP. Be sure you get the correct VPI# and VCI# from your ISP before attempting to manually configure the modem.
