The D-Link DVA-G3810BN/TL kept flaking out on us; we were losing TV and Internet with increasing freqeuncy. I called up Telus and they came by with the Actiontec V1000H to replace the D-Link and modem. The Telus installer apparently looked at our Cat 6 patch panel, 24-port gigabit switch, etc. and decided he'd just leave the box with my wife and let me figure it out when I got back from work.
To summarize, I didn't see a way to add static DHCP assignments or DNS on the Actiontec, so it wasn't going to work for me. I was also not going to change my LAN from 192.168.1.x: 2 desktops, 5 laptops, Synology NAS, LaserJet 5Si/MX, Soundbridge, Squeezebox Radio, PS3, PSP, iPad, Blackberry. After a bit of investigation, I found this link that allows you to change the LAN IP of the Actiontec: http://192.168.1.254/advancedsetup_lanipaddress.html
PLEASE NOTE: If you set the Actiontec V1000H LAN IP to 192.168.0.x, it appears that Optik TV will not work. So I set the V1000H LAN IP to 192.168.2.254. I also disabled wireless, UPNP, Firewall, etc. I decided to make the Netgear WNDR3700 WAN address 192.168.2.1, so I configured this IP as the DMZ on the Actiontec.
I then configured my Netgear WAN IP as 192.168.2.1, with 192.168.2.254 as the gateway and DNS server. The Netgear LAN IP is 192.168.1.1, and it's now back doing DHCP, Wireless, Port Forwarding, etc.
The Netgrear WNDR3700 is plugged into LAN port 2 on the Actiontec V1000H, while the Cisco PVR is connected to LAN Port 1.
So far so good, as I'm now basically treating the Actiontec as a modem.
