getting ready to give up on Verizon DSL high speed intrnet... new modem / router at SLOWER speeds ..
Enthusiast - Level 2

I'm about getting ready to give up on Verizon DSL high speed internet... new modem / router at SLOWER speeds than our old WESTEL 6100.... 

Verizon I am set at a possible DSL speed of 1.5-3 Mbps(DSL high speed internet).??? not much high speed there?? It's never been up to the 3 Mbps speed that I am Paying too much for as it is.

I was getting 2.53 DL and .67UL  AT IT"S BEST  on my OLD westel modem.

You sent me your GT784WN modem for free said my old was faulty, it is in bridge mode as per your CS rep and he had me put it into Transparent (I believe) and NOW I am no longer able to access its set up ???

I have it hooked up as before in bridge mode to my Airport Extreme 802.11n router (which I don't want to get rid of).

My speed now is worse. At .86-1.47 DL to .28 -.63 UL speed (the higher speeds are when hard wired).

What are my options? Any way to get more speed out of this set up..

Can this modem be used with my Airport Extreme to extend the signal?

If so how can this be done (not too tech savy so would need detailed instructions)

I am so tired of talking to your Indian tech support. I am at my whits end and ready to ditch verizon all together. Smiley Frustrated
