I have just bought a DSL Starter Kit from Actiontec and I am not sure that it will work for my phone service or where I am located at. The store says they will not allow me to return it if I open it,so I want to make sure that it is compatible with my service and my location.

It is highly dependent on which ISP you have. I would recommend calling the ISP's tech support line, and asking them if they support this specific model. I know my old actiontec didn't support my verizon dsl at home. 
Otherwise, post your ISP here, and we can google it for you.

Internet explorer stop working


You could be experiencing downtime, phone your Internet Service Provider and ask them to check the connectivity of your line. Also make sure the ethernet cables are connected and the Router is turned on, the internet/DSL light should be lit. In which case you would be online in no time.

If it is also a modem you must contact your isp and give them your mac address on the router( located on the bottom usually ). If it is DSL you must enter in the correct PPPOE information so the router can dial into your service.

This is only a problem with the firmware of your modem/router that you need to update it, because a network device like a modem and router that is working fine for severla years and suddenly stop working you just need to update the firmware of it and it should be working fine again, to update the firmware of the modem/router just need to call the manufacturer for that....

Hope that helps.........

I have a netgear wireless router. I plugged it into my actiontec wireless ready dsl gateway. How do i get it to work wireless


Assuming the dsl gateway your talking about is the one in the link below

You do not need to use another wireless router as the gateway you have already is one. On your wireless pc you should be able to see it in the list of wireless networks available to you.

Since I've hooked up my internet my phone has gone dead. It is not an outside problem. My phone was fine before I pluged in the dsl. I have disconected the box and tried pluging in just the phone and that...


contact your service provider and ask them to put a filter in your customer service access on your outside phone interface sometimes the dsl will over power the line filters and keep your phone from working try unpluging your dsl and all your phones for 5 min then pluging just 1 phone in and see if you have a dial tone

Lexmark x6150 unalbe to fax phone line is active using dsl


Hey Tony - Did you recently hook this up to the DSL for the first time? This unit is supposedly not able to work with a DSL line.

The fax modem in your AIO is an analog device and cannot be used on an ISDN, DSL, or PBX digital phone service. However, you can connect certain devices to your AIO that let you use the fax function in addition to these digital phone services.

To connect without an unsupported line:
Connect an active telephone cable from the AIO to the telephone wall jack.

To connect with an unsupported line:
If you use an ISDN phone service, you can connect to an analog telephone port (an R-interface port) on an ISDN terminal adapter.
For more help and to request an R-interface port, contact the ISDN provider.
If you use a DSL (Digital Subscriber Line) phone service, you can connect to a DSL filter or router that will allow for some analog (rather than digital) use.
If you use a PBX phone service, you can install an analog phone line for a fax machine.

If this was working on the DSL let me know. I don't know the location but obviously a separate phone jack is the easiest. Let me know. If this helps you fix it you can rate this as fixed. If you are just going to rate this as helpful I'd rather you please not rate it and just add a comment and say thanks for the info.
If you need more help just add a comment and I'll be glad to assist you further. Thanks.
