actiontec gt701d

i just bought the actiontec gt701d and hoped i would be able to use that instead the modem provided for me. I have tried to use he auto setup and the manual and the modem wont detect my internet. It works fine with the modem that was provided. I noticed on the webiste that only the actiontec gt701 is listed. Does this mean my modem is not compatible with the ISP I now have?

Do you get a DSL sync light? Did you call CL and get your PPPoE username and password?

That modem is for ADSL, is that what you have now, the slower speed service? It won't work on the faster VDSL2. If you have ADSL and put in your username and password like Mr. Bill said it should work. You can find your username on your contract buy you might not have ever had a need to know your DSL password if you haven't setup a modem before. It's not the same as your email or online account password. If you don't know what it is then you will need to contact C/L on the phone or online chat to get it, then write it down.
