Bug in ActionTec GT701

Sunday, 25th November 2007

Grr! There's a bug in the firmware (including the latest version available from Qwest) of the ActionTec GT701 DSL modem. When using DHCP, the DHCP server sends its own IP address instead of the primary DNS IP. The secondary DNS IP works correctly. This can cause delays of a few seconds when loading web sites, for example. The only workarounds are to not use DHCP, use a different DHCP server, or hack your client to ignore that IP (one idea here).
