Fully supported by CenturyLink technical support, this product has been rigorously tested through the DSL Forum to ensure maximum performance. Security features include a robust firewall and easy-to-manage WEP encryption to keep your documents safe. Unable to verify that as it had been more than a year, I decided I was purchasing my own equipment. There was a faint smell of "something hot" during the first few days it was hooked up- which concerned me- but that has gone away and I am very pleased with the performance.

I would have given excellent on everything but that only indicates there is no room for improvement Installation couldn't have been simpler.

As a Centurylink customer, I needed something that I could depend on to have the correct specifications. This unit which is actually a DSL modem and a router fits the bill. No software was needed to install because installation was automatically done online.

You do need an Ethernet connection at first, but you can switch to wireless once installation is complete. Broadband speed is very good and the internet connection has been very stable. I have internet access throughout my house and most of my large yard. This unit replaces three devices that I was previously using to provide wi-fi in my home.

I had a DSL modem, a wireless router, and another router to help increase the coverage area. Also, I didn't break my piggy bank. Seidnerm, July 21, I am an existing century link customer and needed to update the router.

This one is plug and play. Optoguy79, January 28, Doesn't even deserve 1 star. We have Centurylink high speed service and own our connection equipment.

I've connected routers and modems in the past and expected this to be a piece of cake. I called the number in the instructions and the tech told me he was going to have to transfer me He did this several times. Each time he told me he was going to have to transfer me to someone else. After 25 minutes, most of it spent on hold, he transferred the call yet again but this time it went to a voicemail. I called back and got someone else. We made a little headway, but this 2nd rep told me I'd need to call Actiontec because the router's internal settings weren't correct and only they would be able to provide the info needed to change them.

I called Actiontec and their rep told me I'd have to call Centurylink to get the info. I gave up and hung up. Then I reconnected the old equipment. We've had issues with CenturyLink in general in our neighborhood so we figured it was the service and not the modem. Wish I could return this one but by the time I figured out that this modem is a piece of junk it was beyond the deadline for returns.

The reason I bought it was because ever since Qwest changed to CenturyLink no one ever bothered to provide us a new modem so we were stuck using the same Qwest modem from 10 years ago.

So far so good! I recently added VDSL to a non-primary residence and setup this router in conjunction with a video surveillance system. I've not had one issue with it and it has been a solid performer. When we stay at the house, we connect numerous devices from televisions, tablets, smart phones, laptops, game systems and more.

All devices with the exception of the surveillance system connect wirelessly and the performance is great. We stream movies and put a lot of data through it without one glitch. I'm so glad I decided to purchase the unit outright and not go with the equipment rental as it will pay for itself in less than 4 months. Feature wise I'm please with the available options and in particular the guest network feature. I've also set mine up with multiple wireless networks each on various segments for added security.

Having an extensive background in technology and networking I can tell you the interface made it easy enough for the average user to accomplish what I did with little or no understanding of networks.

This is a used product. Some scratches, very dusty, has not been reset from the last owner. Easy to setup, good user interface. Worked the first time. The router antenna is very weak, some of my devices that connected fine to my lynksis router before won't connect here.

I had to disable the router portion and use this purely as a modem. I'm using an old dlink router instead and it's much easier to connect to. Overall, not bad if you use it as a modem only. Unfortunately this sat in the box for months before trying it. It would not work. No matter what we tried, it would not work. Century Link claimed that many of these routers are refurbished, so its not a surprise that it didn't work.

Century link assured us the brand should be compatible, but to no avail. Our loss for waiting 3 months to plug it in. One person found this helpful 2 people found this helpful.

I was leasing my modem directly from Centrurylink 2 star for them I finally took initiative to look for it online, and got a great deal on a used model. Works great for our small sq ft apartment.

Handles 2 laptops, 2 cell phones, and a printer and 2 chromecasts no problem. I bought the refurbished model. It arrived in pristine condition with all the necessary cords.

No instructions shipped with it, which I thought was odd and the reason for only 4 stars. Plugged it in, attempted to install it and was having issues. I had to reset the modem, it hadn't been reset before being sent to me. I find that strange since it was supposedly refurbished, but regardless, once that was done, installing was a breeze.

Bottom line, works great. My old modem I was constantly having to reset it. This one is flawless so far. I would definitely recommend. One person found this helpful.

This unit was to replace the exact same model that I am currently using with CenturyLink internet. After hours of trying to make it work, I gave up. It simply would not connect. I googled, I read, did all the right things to resolve the problem, but without success. In actuality, this unit should be be very simple to make a basic connection, and then maybe later you can, if you want to, try setting various parameters more to your taste.

But I simply could not make this connect at all. See all reviews. See all customer images. Most recent customer reviews. Published 1 month ago. Published 2 months ago. Published 3 months ago.
