Great Replacement Modem/Router,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Actiontec GT724WGR Wireless DSL Modem (Personal Computers)
The setup is easy but I had the same problem as the previous poster, I couldn't get online because I put my email password instead of the one provided by my ISP. Tip: When you get directed to your ISP website to register make sure you write down all the info they give you. Other than that it works great streaming files to my DLNA devices, I had to turn off the firewall to get PlayOn to work though. The range is excellent, I get a 90% signal at 80ft. For best range set the unit vertical on it's stand.
As for the previous posters question: you can turn it off at night but Actiontec recommends leaving it on. If you are worried about security you should turn off the wireless, as for power usage the unit uses very little wattage.
