            No problem with setting this DSL modem up with Verizon DSL service and even the "Auto Configure Your Modem" works perfectly. Actiontec does not make themselves clear in their instruction but if you have separate router disconnect it and connect you computer directly into the modem to setup. After the setup check that you are able to connect to the internet and everything is working ok, than reconnect your router to your computer and modem and now go enjoy the internet.

            It's slower speed than compatible NetGear which router is built-in. However, it cost only 1/3 of it cost. After buy a router it still only 1/2 of the NetGear cost.

              After reading many great reviews, I bought this as my modem for new AT&T DSL services in my home. It was about 1/2 the price that AT&T wanted me to pay for their stock modem. I found a YouTube video from Actiontec, that simplified the install process. Worked right away. No problems so far :)

                    This device works as it is suppose to.Very easy to set up, but make sure that you call your internet provider before begining the set up process.This will allow you to proceed to the next step.
                    The only thing that bothered me was the big gash in the original box not the box it was shipped in. However,the unit works fine so it wasn't damaged.

                            Comments about Actiontec Ethernet DSL Modem with Routing Capabilities:

                            I purchased this modem to replace an old AT&T Slipstream 5100B modem that was still operating just fine, but I wanted something that would be more compatible with the newer DSL standards, such as ADSL2+. After reading reviews of AT&T's OEM modem offerings, I knew that I didn't want one of those. I finally found a reference to the Actiontek GT701D modem, and most of the reviews were favorable, so I took a chance on it.

                            It's lived up to its reputation! Installation was easy, and the modem is quick and trouble free. I'm not a gamer, but I do a lot of internet research and bouncing from site to site, and I've noticed that there's an appreciable improvement in loading speeds when the internet and the sites themselves cooperate.

                            Whereas the old Slipstream modem sat vertically on my desk, the Actiontek sits horizontally, but has a small footprint, so it fits into the same space. Although it doesn't matter at all as far as performance goes, I also like the looks of this modem.

                            I've been using the modem for about 3 weeks, and I consider this upgrade to be money well spent.

                                      Didn't do what I wanted it to do (not its fault - mine - didn't understand system enough).
                                      Now I have a spare.

                                          I bought this modem in combination with a wireless router to replace the modem/router from my internet service provider. It was easy to install and we have had no connectivity problems since switching to this modem a couple weeks ago.

                                          It was easy to install. You pretty much just plug it in and it works. You do need your username and password from your internet service provider. I also read before I bought this modem that for my particular ISP which starts with a "V", it may be necessary to unplug your old modem a few hours before you install the new one. I did and I had no trouble.

                                            Had to buy a DSL splitter, in order to connect my telephone. I had no luck in 4 Manhattan stores that sold computer/electronics, therefore I had to purchase online.

                                              Have ATT DSL. My old Motorola 2210 DSL modem burned out, you could log into it but it didn't detect the DSP's so bascially that unit was toast, and from what I read on the Internet, apparently a common problem. Replaced with this Actiontec which worked great. One difference is the Actiontec is the DSL termination and firewall/NAT device only. Before with the Motorola I used to pass PPPoE to a Cisco router I had behind the modem and so my credentials were on my Cisco. Now I don't need the Cisco, had to put my DSL credentials on the Actiontec, which takes care of NAT, etc. I use the DSL heavily around the clock and the Actiontec is working great so far.

                                                  It took me awhile to get the thing working.After contacting Actiontec,I had to contact [...]to get the rest of the information.The unit is working excellent and has given me no problems. If I would have had the information it wouldn't have taken long.Please have you password and Number info when you activate the unit.It was an excellent buy for the money.

                                                    I used this to replace the DSL modem supplied by AT&T which was a piece of junk from the start. This one came ready to go and had a little applet for setting up on the AT&T network. I've had it a couple of weeks and so far, so good.
