Question about Actiontec (DHUSB00020C01)

1 Answer

My voice is not being heard

I connected the Actiontec Phone Wizard ( to my PC (via USB), to my phone POTS line (via RJ11 jack) and to my old landline phone (via RJ11 jack), and it all seems to work fine. When I pick up the phone and dial ##, the dial tone I hear switches to a "skype" dial tone, and when I dial a number, it routes it to Skypeout and the call connects. This is where the problem starts. I can hear the other party answer the phone, and their voice comes through clearly on my handset. When I speak into the handset, however, they cannot hear me. Although the sound output from Skype makes its way to my handset, my voice is not making its way back to skype because after about 15 seconds, Skype shows an on-screen message saying it is not receiving any sound input. I hope this is a software configuration problem. Any ideas?

I have the GXV-3000 IP Video phone, there is a RJ11 jack on the back. How do I use the interface? Connect to my phone line from ATT or connect to a regular phone (as an extention?)? Thanks.

A copy of the user manual for your IP phone is found here:

I have browsed through and found no mention of an RJ-11 port on the back, only two RJ-45 Network ports, one for connecting to a PC in switch mode and one for ethernet mode.

If your phone is different and DOES have an RJ-11 port (as some IP phones do), I can only assume it is to connect to a landline to offer landline services as well as IP services.

Under those circumstances of course DO NOT attempt to plug in your landline RJ-11 into an RJ-45, it will not work and you risk shorting something out.

You have two options that I know will work.

Run a Ethernet cable from you router or switch to the XBOX and just plug it in. Ethernet is good for 325 feet but it is best if you keep it below 300 feet. Here is a good place to shop for this type of stuff:

You can also get an WIFI adapter that is 100% compatible with your XBOX. Actiontec is the worst of the worst. Here is an real Microsoft XBOX adapter:

FYI: Customer support at any ISP or cable company are non-technical people that have no knowledge of how things work. If they did they would be answering phones all day. I find it hard to believe that they would know what works on an XBOX and they are fools for recommending Actiontec products.

Once i open my router how do i actually open the ports for xbox tcp80,udp88,exctra im using a action tec gt704wg wireless router
Your manual above it also shows you how to open ports in there.
Also if you go to, they will show you how to do it too. Go to the link below.

Actiontec Gateways and Routers are compatible with the Xbox. However, it may be necessary to forward the ports used by the Xbox, in the Actiontec Gateway or Router. Without Port Forwarding, the Xbox Connection Test may report a "NAT" rating of "STRICT" or "MODERATE", rather than "OPEN".
It is also explained below...
