Question about Actiontec GT704WG Wireless Router (gs583ad3-01)

1 Answer

Reconnecting the modem

My 3yr old modem works only intermittently so I bought a new gt704wg. Instinct tells me to just plug and play. The new one from Best Buy did not come with an installation CD nor many explicit instructions. I am kind of afraid to go ahead and start the process because I don't want to be left with nothing. Does anyone have any suggestions. I don't have the installation CD from 3 years ago.

They do not have any install CD. You have to set it up and then call Verizon to help you set it up completley but you swill be able to get to the 192.168.1.1. site so you can get it online

Hi I want to know on how to setup the verizon Modem/Router I already have a Westell 6100G and i want to upgrade to the new one called Verizon Wireless modem/router model:GT704WG.


Are you on Consumer Verizon DSL? Fair warning if you are using Business Static- the Actiontec is a poor choice due to issues working on a static IP circuit. - I'd use a 6110 and a third party router! However, by default, the only thing you would need to do to setup the modem is go through the activation page when you plug the modem in. If you require an user name and password, it would set that up. Bar any problems, you can contact Verizon technical support since the Actiontec Gateway is fully supported.

When power switch is turned on the Power light is rapidly flashing & the 4 Ethernet lights are flashing. The box is Actiontec GT704wg


I do not have a solution to the problem. However, I am having the same problem. This morning the Actiontec GT704WG power and ethernet lights were rapidly flashing. The modem was non-functional. I could not even connect to the modem through the browser to see if I could find a problem.

The problem lasted a couple of hours. Then all of a sudden the modem started working again. I won't be able to tell if the problem recurs until I restart the modem. And if the problem does occur again, I won't be able to connect to the internet.

Dell Latitude c400 not connecting to anything!


security systems can interfere, but i dont think that is your problem. If you can see the signal and its not connecting, your access has possible dropped out. Some BB sites use 10.0.0.138 as an IP address so in the browser use http;//10.0.0.0.138 this should bring up a login tyepe admin admin user and PW then go to settings and disconnect. Then select reconnect type in your username and password and exit. wait 5 mins and you should be able to connect. If the IP does not work call your ISP and get the correct sequence.

I have had this same problem with Qwest using a new iMac and MacBook on the Actiontec modem. Qwest did two things: first we reset the modem which was fairly simple and took only about 5 minutes. However, this fix lasts only a few weeks and it comes back. I have just ordered a new modem since there seems to be a problem with the Actiontec device with the newer high speed internet.
I'd try the reset before doing anything else. Good luck.

Constant intermittent loss of connectivity, even with new gt704wg router


Hi,
It might be that you have a voltage drop. I noticed that this modem is very sensitive to voltage 'dips' and it will 'reset' itself if even the slightest dip in power hits it.
I have a A/C that sucks power when it cycles and every time it does I lose the internet connection. So I set up a 12 volt battery with an DC to AC inverter and run the modem off of battery power.

That might be the problem your having.

Cannot connect to admin on GT704WG


try power off/on and then reset hold the reset in for at least 10sec - holding it in for 1-2sec is the same as power off - but i would still physically remove the power for at least 30secs remove all the lan cables - just plug in the one PC you use then hold the reset for 10secs 192.168.0.1 - is the default login - so should work now - if not the router is faulty whats the status of all the lights on the router
