Summary: Part of a multi-WAN network that contains: TP Link TL R470T Load Balanced Router, Motorola SB6121 SURFboard DOCSIS 3.0 Cable Modem, Actiontec GT701D DSL Gateway Modem, and TP Link TL SG1008 8-port Unmanaged Switch. All bought at Walmart. Setup required minimal effort and has been running error-free since it was installed over two weeks ago. Now we've got crazy FAST when the cable's up and DSL backup when the cable's down for nightly maintenance.
Summary: I needed a wireless modem & this I had to have cable & I don't in the room where my computer is set up. So I had to send back so disappointed becuase it was shipped fast to me with no problem. The price was really reasonable & I love getting shipped to my house for free. Walmart is still my favorite store!
Summary: My only problem was not having the info from my ISP for their protocol. Actiontec assisted me in the program (simple) and was running in 10-15 minutes. Matches 660 from Embarq and Century Link to a Tee. Other than that, my routher (wire & wireless) work great. Didn't have to do anything to it. System not slowing down or dopping out.
Summary: Bought this because Walmart was closer than Century Link and my wife works from home and needed to be back up. ( Windows 7 machine ) install was easy,, Called Century link for our DSL user name and password and were given the run around about the old modem, Look, it doesnt power up, just give me my user name,, geez. so then it starts the updates etc and seemed to be hung up so we reset it a couple times, before finally rebooting the computer, all is well now..
Summary: After reading some of the reviews I thought this would be a great modem but after I received it I had some complications. I called tech support and spoke to a lady I could barely understand(India) and after five minutes of trying to help she told me to just return the item and buy a different brand. (WOW!) Never had that happen.
Summary: This is the 2nd Actiontec modem I've had. Both the same. The first one lasted about 8 months this one I got the first part of Feb. Paid nearly 70 dollars with it delivered because I'm disabled. It is the first of August and it has gone out as well. Right now I'm using the one I got from my dsl provider and I will never buy any actiontec products again.
