Anyone have DSL (or whatever) service with an Actiontec modem?

I'd like opinions of the Model GT701-WG wireless router dsl modem, or
even just Actiontec stuff in general.

I like mine around the house. A little underpower. When I received it there
was a problem getting to some websites such as Disney.com (MTU not 1500)
a firmware upgrade from Qwest solved that.

Still like the flexability of Linksys routers for work. Actiontec is pretty
simple
and easy for do-it-yourself installers.

I had a Linksys WRT54G wireless router running my home network. When
I signed up for QWest DSL service, they provided the Actiontec DSL
wireless modem and router. Though I originally intended to keep the
Linksys in service, I pulled it and just set up my home network with the
Actiontec. After using if for a month, I now realize it has been problem
free, unlike my Linksys.

<shrug> I supplied my own WRT54G and also a Linksys cable modem, declining
the ones Comcast wanted to supply me (and charge me for every month), and
the only problem I've had was in getting setup info for an additional box,
a Linksys bridge, picking up the wireless net and feeding a 5 port switch
in a far room. That's been working with no problems for many months.

YMMV.n

I might have done that, had QWest only provided a DSL modem, but the
unit they currently provide is also a wireless AP. Tey rent it for $5.00
per month. I opted to buy it for $59.00 . Not a bad deal, I think. I
set up quickly, and as I said before, replaced my WRT54G just fine.
