Excellent Product – But needs more detailed instructions 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…

Great Replacement for ATT Motorola 2210 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 168.192.0.1. 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)…

Fast and Easy 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 automatic2) you select your provider3) completely manualWhile 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,…
