I would like to understand what everyone else thinks are the best
I have had Qwest DSL for a long time and use an Actiontec GT701 in
transparent bridge mode.
Lately, every once in awhile, it just stops passing packets.
Power cycling the Actiontec sometimes helps and sometimes
disconnecting/reconnecting (logout/login) seems to resolve it. Sometimes
I have to disconnect/reconnect 4-5 times before it becomes stable again.
Performance has suffered as well from time to time over the last year
Qwest of course advises that everything is fine on their side. I am
I just upgraded to the 7mbs which miraculously just appeared as an option...
So, what is the best choice for a new DSL modem knowing that I will
probably stick with transparent bridge mode. Any reasons I should not do
My pots line is connected to the phone line out on the modem so I
understand that I should not need to use the DSL line filter (the modem
has a filter internally). Is that correct?
Thanks for any pointers.
