Great Modem / Router and works perfect!
Posted by: Dewitt from: on
I purchased this Modem / Router for my daughter to replace her existing unit because she kept dropping her internet connection and she was only getting about 1/2 of her advertised speed. The new Actiontec Modem / Router was a breeze to connect, configure and activate. I never even had to call CenturyLink to activate it. As soon as we had it up and running, her internet speed doubled and is faster than I ever expected. It has been a month and there is not been a single internet connection issue and she can also now stream Netflix videos to her television with no issues. The biggest surprise was how simple it was to install and activate. It comes with its own setup wizard and all you have to do is let it walk you through the painless process. All I had to do was enter her username and password and that was it. I highly recommend this product to anyone that needs a stable, robust, and reliable ADSL Modem / Router.

Extremely Easy Install
Posted by: Hambone from: on
This was by far the easiest modem I have ever had to install. I kept waiting for a hiccup somewhere along the way...but all went extremely smooth. I installed using Windstream DSL; all I had to have was my Windstream user name and password; the modem installation program did all the rest. It took all of 5 - 10 minutes from the very start to being up and running. The wireless distance also seems to be very good. I have a 2500 sq foot home and the signal is strong throughout. I also get a workable signal up to 100 feet outside of the house. So far I am very pleased; I think it will certainly beat renting a modem from Windstream at $10 a month.

Works great and a great value...
Posted by: BigAl from: on
I had to purchase a new modem/WiFi router because my original unit suffered surge damage (even though it was plugged into a surge protector). The Actiontec unit is an easy plug and play modem/router with typical setup procedures that are well documented in the quick start guide. There are much more expensive options out there, but for under $100, the Actiontec wired connection serves my family well for our desktop, and we also stream wirelessly our entire TV service, wifi to my phone, and to three tablets for the wife and kids!

Good modem router for Windstream
Posted by: lucky711 from: on
I needed to replace an aging Windstream modem router without having to pay a monthly "rental" charge from Windstream. This was one of the very few I found available. If this unit lasts about 7 or 8 months, it will have proved cheaper than one "rented" from Windstream.
This unit was very easy to set up. Basically just plug it in, give it a name and a security password and it works. So far it has done a great job. And Wi-Fi range is greater than the old one from Windstream. Speed capacity also is much greater than the old one.

Excellent Product !
Posted by: GeekyGadgetGuy from: San Jose, CA on
I've had the gt784 from Actiontec up and running in my home for several months. First off, the installation was extremely easy. The product has a built in program that automatically connects you to your service provider (in my case AT&T). WiFi is very fast, even with over a dozen active devices (laptops, iphones, ipads, ipods, wifi cams, etc.).
What really impresses me is that this product is great for novice users and experts alike. for the novice, it basically does all the hard work for you. for the expert, you have tons of features and flexibility at your fingertips! I'm also extremely pleased with the performance of the connection to my service provider. The actual data speed I'm getting is better than the unit previously supplied by my isp.

When my modem died I started researching what was out there that would work for hard wire and wireless. I found this product and know that Actiontec is a good product since that is what my company i work for uses mostly. WOW so easy to set up and way cheaper than what my internet provided wanted. Heads up though as the sales people at best buy will tell you that this product will not work with Century Link(even though right on the outside of the box it says it will) and that you have to only use Century Link products. I had no issues connecting. It was fast and easy to setup and was done in about 15 minutes and this product walks you through how to set up the security too so that you have a secure connections. Highly recommend and YES it DOES work with Century Link

Quick setup with ATT DSL
Posted by: BBshopper88 from: Mountain View, CA on
My old 2Wire (2700HG-B) AT&T modem went out and I had to get a new wireless modem/router ASAP. AT&T said if I bought one from them it would cost $100 (Netgear or Pace America). I did some research and found excellent reviews about the Actiontec Wireless N DSL Modem (GT784WN) at BB for $69.99. It took me less than 20 minutes to install. The quick start guide included was very easy to follow. I also set it up for wireless. Depending on your connection, it can go up to 300 Mbps. It has 4 Ethernet ports, allows for multiple devices, is secure (you can set up a password, so others can't login to your router), and works with all major providers (ATT, Verizon, Qwest, etc.) I didn't need this, but they also have free 24/7 customer support, which is an added bonus. I would highly recommend this DSL modem! (Note: this is not a broadband modem and does not work with Comcast, AT&T U-verse or Verizon FiOS). P.S. The customer service person at BB was very helpful. He said he sells more of these models than any other. Thank you BB!

Super fast and easy to install!
Posted by: techyguy from: Morgan Hill on
I am a fairly technical guy after being my own tech support for many years. However, the last router I purchased (not Actiontec) was extremely difficult to install. I also found out that I could not reach the speeds offered by my internet provider because my router was the lowest common denominator...thereby limiting the speed.
The "Wireless N" DSL modem that I purchased last week was simple to install and has increased my DSL speed beyond my expectations. I rarely write reviews...this one was a "no brainier".
I would not consider any other brand of modem.
Life is Good!

Replaced a Linksys Router & Speedstream Modem
Posted by: BBFan from: Ford City, PA on
I bought this combo modem/router to replace an older Linksys router and Windstream-furnished Speedstream modem. It was simple to install and set up. I expected a big boost in range by upgrading but the improvement was modest. The speed is very good and I do not have to reset it like I frequently had to do with the old setup. The price was right and the Best Buy associate did not try to get me to buy something more than I would use. Very happy with this Router/modem

Good router for the money
Posted by: JohnZ from: on
Bought this to replace my second fried AT&T DSL router/modem. Not only saved 30% over replacing with ATT product but also it is noticeably faster on both upload/download. Setup was a little time consuming since it's a universal style device. Not bad though. I also like being able to customize wifi password, something my old router wouldn't allow. If you still have DSL or can't yet upgrade to/afford cable internet this is a good router for the money.
