Customer Reviews of Zoom Telephonics X7N ADSL Wireless-N Modem/Router
Wow, what an improvement!2/22/2014
I purchased this modem / wireless router to replace the Speedstream DSL modem that I received from my telephone company (Verizon) when I originally signed up for service back in 2004 and a Belkin router that was about two years old. With my old setup I was constantly having trouble playing movies on YouTube and Netflix my VPN connection from work would be very unreliable unless I rebooted the DSL modem once every day or two. I thought that it was a problem with the lines in my neighborhood, but I figured I would risk spending $45 or so to get a new modem. Well, it turned out to be the modem and my throughput is seriously about four times faster than I had with my old modem even when it was working perfectly. The router also has quite a bit more range than my old Belkin and I find that I generally have one more bar with all my devices. Setting up the modem went quickly, although the interface is quite spartan and gives you a ton of options that I suspect that only the techiest of the techies out there would ever change. One other advantage is that the device is very compact and takes up a lot less space than my old setup.
I have been having a very frustrating experience with Zoom's x7n modem. My modem would not stay on (I believe the problem was the terminal connecting to the power supply). Zoom's customer service was abominable. Not that their people were not always polite and courteous, but there were slow response times (one time an entire week for a response to an email), misinformation, ignored phone messages. And now after finally getting the replacement product I still am going to get hosed for the shipping of Zoom's defect back to them! But there's more. The replacement modem seemed to have an intermittent problem, and needed to be reset about once a week. I wasn't sure this was really a modem defect so I did not act on it. However, about 6 weeks after I got my replacement it stopped working completely. I'm thinking those clever people at Zoom sent a "refurbished" product instead of a new one. Don't know that for sure, all I know is I'm getting jacked by Zoom. Never again. My best advice is do not buy a Zoom product. If you have problems with it, you will be sorry!
Zoom X7 ASDL Modem/Router Excellent Choice3/22/2012
Easy setup! Didn't use install disk. Bottom of unit listed open with 192.168.1.1 , used default router ID & password, typed my ISP ID & password, auto configured, saved, and I was up and running. 5 minutes total! Only issue (not serious): All ports are "CLOSED", but not "STEALTH" according to ShieldsUp! @ GRC . COM until you configure DMZ with IP 10.0.0.252. Then all ports are "STEALTH" except 0 and 1, which show "CLOSED". Easily configurable for gamers.
