Works great. Does not run hot. Using it for almost a week. Came with a 2 page booklet with steps for configuring it major ISPs like AT&T, Verizon. Had to search the internet for steps to configure it in bridged mode with my router. Wish instructions for configuring into bridged mode were given in the user manual. Basically, you have to perform the following steps:
1. Auto-Configure the modem with your ISP by directly connecting the modem to your computer. Follow the instructions given in the booklet/user manual/ISP letter to enter the PPPoE username & password.
2. After configuration is complete, confirm that you are connected to the internet.
3. Click 'Advanced Setup' on the Main Menu.
4. Turn off DHCP Server on the 'DHCP Settings' page. Click Apply.
5. Go to 'WAN IP Address' page and click Yes on the warning. Select RFC 1483 Transparent Bridging. Click Apply.
6. The Internet light on the modem will turn off and always remain off in bridged mode.
7. Remove cable from computer and plug into WAN port of your Router.
8. In your router settings enter the PPPoE username & password. Follow instructions in your router's user manual to enable DHCP on your router.
You should now be connected to the Internet using your modem & router in bridged mode.

I purchased this unit to replace a Motorola 2210 that after 13 months died of heat exhaustion. The 2210 ran HOT HOT HOT. I was told by an ATT Tech that the unit might last a year, and of course 13 months out, one month after the warranty expired the 2210 died. My replacement setup tied this Actiontec unit to a D-Link DIR 655 Extreme N Wireless Router. When I attempted an automatic setup, it turned out that both the Actiontec and the D-Link Wireless Router shared an IDENTICAL IP Network Address at This is not a good thing. However after a quick call to Actiontec Customer Support on a Friday Night (I really do have a life:) along with a brief description of the conflict issue, I was able (using advance settings) to modify the Network IP Address on the Actiontec unit, resolve the conflict and get the unit up and running. This unit is virtually identical to the Motorola 2210 in terms of connections and for anyone replacing a burned out 2210 Motorola (piece of junk) this is the unit for you. The unit is about the same size and runs noticeably cooler than the 2210. From other reviews of this and a related Actiontec unit it appears and so far I can confirm that this Actiontec unit is very effective in holding and processing the DSL signal. The slightly more expensive Actiontec USB & Ethernet DSL Modem has an on off switch a USB port and can handle two computers on a wired network basis without an additional network adapter, but is also an older unit that must be upgraded to ADSL 2/2+, whereas this GT701D unit has ADSL 2/2+ protocol built in. This is a great unit for the money if you require a simple stand alone DSL modem.

I bought this to replace a Verizon-provided Westell. The Westell was working fine but I was willing to see if this one would be faster, and I wanted a backup in case the one I had died (without waiting for Verizon to send a replacement).

THere are 3 setup choices (my wording):
1) totally automatic
2) you select your provider
3) completely manual

While I was comfortable with doing a manual setup, I was curious to see how easy it would be using option 2. I had to know that my Verzion service was PPPOE, but other than that it did indeed need no information except the user and password.

I looked at the options (firewall, NAT, pass-through, etc) but didn't set any of them as I use this with a router and have everything configured in the router.

Interestingly, it is running faster than the Westell's I've used (and I've had several). I've run some tests and while they're not controlled, I'm seeing about 8%.

Physically, it's very small and is clearly more fragile than other DSL modems I've had, using thinner plastic. It wouldn't put up with much abuse, but then there's no reason it should be subjected to it.

Important point: The ethernet cable they provide is a cross-over, and you need that on setup when connectiong the modem directly to your computer. If using a router, you'll then not use that cable again. Most people setting up modems with routers know this, but there's virtually no documentation for this thing and the on-disc manual is weak.

I recently discovered my internet speed dying after 10 minutes of having to reboot my old speedstream 5100B modem AT&T/SBC/Pacbell originally gave me. Turns out after years of being too hot I need a new modem - and quick! After (too) much research I thought I'd give this no name brand DSL modem a try and I'm glad I did. The modem is feature rich as being both a modem and having some advanced typical router type functions built in. Installation was quick and simple. All I had to do was plug everything in, go to and tell the modem to auto detect my setup and I was online within 60 seconds! No messing around with settings I'm unfamiliar with. Look no further than this modem. I checked out the AT&T store and their pieces of junk are $20 to $50 more than I picked this modem up for.
