For those of you with Verizon you're limited by the number of "official" dsl gateways available from Verizon. Most of us get saddled with the dain-bramaged Westell 7500 which, while it works (usually) it is about as user friendly as a cactus in your underwear when it comes time for custom settings. The aged 327 is still rock solid but is too limited in what it can do. There are other gateways out there that will work (hint: also ActionTec!) with Verizon but I didn't want to fool with fiddling with custom settings just to be able to connect.

Enter the ActionTec GT784WNV! The firmware is preconfigured for Verizon so I was up & running within minutes of unplugging my old gateway and the wireless b/g/n network connected instantly. My wireless is now faster & has a stronger signal throughout the house. There are also a TON of user customizations available through the very well done GUI & you can set up any type of port forwarding, vpn, dmz, QOS, etc etc etc you want. Firewall is also customizable but I haven't' fully explored the options there yet.

Before hooking up the ActionTec I took screen shots and notes from the Westell's settings in case there was an issue but this new gateway is so user friendly that I rarely referred to the notes. BE SURE YOU HAVE YOUR VERIZON USERNAME HANDY! You can find this on your current gateway's home screen & you will need to enter that to maintain a signal w/ Verizon. The ActionTec will also ask you to set a new password for the 'admin' log-in on the GUI homepage so make it something you'll remember.

Bottom line - Verizon should dump the Westell's in the recycle bin and ship these instead. A MUCH better gateway all around!

The standard DSL modem Verizon kept shipping me, over and over again, could never negotiate to anything better than 1Mb/s and often would be much, much slower and would drop so often I had to use a Raspberry Pi to monitor my internet connection and reboot it. Since putting this unit in my connection has been up 100% and at 3Mb/s for over 2 weeks. Highly recommend.

I've been using the Westell WT704WG Verizon certified router for six years and always had slooooooooow speeds, if it connected at all. To top it off I was continually told that 768k was the fastest speed I could get in my area. I'd finally had enough and called Verizon to cancel my service when low and behold they tell me I can now get 5mb of speed and it's the same price with a bundle with phone and internet! There is a God! The technician came out to switch the DSL to my second phone line (I cancelled my primary line) and he gives me hte Actiontec N modem and router. I'd been looking for years for a router compatible with Verizon's network that supported N speeds and even bought a few but they never worked due to slow network speeds. This one worked flawlessly, connecting to all of my devices and with nothing more than the SSID number. The family's IPhones and IPads are running faster so I'm a hero. Wish it hadn't taken a month of my time and 19-20 phone calls to Verizon's support lines.

I bought this modem/router to replace my 10 year old modem/router which was starting to give me problems which required rebooting several times a day. There is a noticeable improvement in speed over the old unit. No problems in setting it up, it was almost plug it in and done. I hope this new unit gives me 10 years of service. *** UPDATE *** I only got about 60 days of service on the actiontec unit before it stopped working. Luckily I still had my old unit which is back working OK so far. I put in a email to Actiontec's support but haven't gotten a resolution from them. After going back and forth with support the Actiontec unit is now functioning. I had to connect through Ethernet cable & reconfigure. I hope that this will not reoccur.
*** 2nd UPDATE*** The unit has been functioning OK but I still haven't been able to get port forwarding to work properly and I haven't been able to find any user manual, which I don't think exists. Sometime when I have a lot of time to waste I will try to contact Actiontec's customer support.

This net router/modem is a good performs very well. I choose this one because it was recommended to mesh with Verizon
network. The setup was somewhat of a problem area. Once it got installed, it has been a very good and improved performer.

I originally posted a poor review of this modem because it is advertised as a plug-n-chug replacement for Verizon DSL. I followed the instructions repeatedly a couple of days ago, each time being told "congratulations...you are now connected to the internet" and each time I wasn't. Tried for over an hour before giving up and calling Verizon "tech support". Well, anyone who has called them knows how that turned out. I had every intention of returning it today, but thought I'd try one more time on my own...still couldn't connect. After leaving in a huff to eat lunch, I came back an hour later to find everything running perfectly. So, the moral of the story is: before giving up leave for an hour and make sure it doesn't need more time, even if the set up page tells you you're connected and you're not.

Upload and download speeds are no better than the standard modem, but I expected that. I bought it to make my WiFi signal stronger and this little box delivers. WAY stronger signal and much more reliable throughout my building.
