ActionTec-->xbox360,430-Prv,Ps3,Laptop wireless (modem died today) was working till today.
Alu --> LinksysWrt160n -> Xbox360,430-Pvr,ps3,Laptop wireless (current)
Well While I was talking to Telus tech here in Calgary, We did a complete whole system reboot. Unplug all systems.. Plug in just ActionTec all in one router/modem.. and hard wired my Laptop to modem. And the modem would not connect to the Internet, Nothing would connect. The ActionTec was saying connected to internet but nothing was working. No xbox live.. No web browsing from my laptop. and no connection to net for my Pvr 430..
Could connect to router 192.168.1.254. Stats showed connected but nothing. no net. no Telus tv.
We tried again and again, Tech try whole thing over again. He'd try rebooting to factor default settings. Same deal.
I told Telus I still have ALU modem.. The tech guy said to try that. Plugged it in.. Connected my LinksysWrt160n. Version 3..
Boom everything worked now.. Telus Optik Works, My xbox works, my ps3 and laptop now connect..
This is liked 3rd/4th ActionTec/D-Link I have gone threw. That have died or just stop working. Each time they seem stop working after 3-4 month of use and each time I keep going back to old setup..
The Actiontec modem is not overheating or anything, It's sits standing up off the side, with enough airspace to breath.
and each time either ActionTech or D-Link keep dying on me after 2-4 months it seems. This one just died on me today..
