Assuming the dsl gateway your talking about is the one in the link below

You do not need to use another wireless router as the gateway you have already is one. On your wireless pc you should be able to see it in the list of wireless networks available to you.

I have an actiontec gt704wg wireless router (from my previous Verizon DSL service)...I now have a Netgear CGD24G wireless router with Brighthouse roadrunner service...I want to connect my actiontec router...


unfortunately, no. You would be better off Ebaying the actiontec and getting a dedicated router- the reason is that the only uplink on the actiontec is the dsl port- not ethernet. Theoretically you could mod the firmware to make the wireless an access point only- but it would still have the achilles heel of needing an uplink.

Can remember the factory set logon and PW


the gt724wgr, is a DSL modem. You may need to contact your dsl provider for the username and password for your dsl, all the step by step instructions are located in the manual which you can download at this link:

Can I connect a GT704WG to a COMCAST SciAlt modem and have wireless


No. The uplink for the Actiontec is the DSL port. You would be better off purchasing a router from a retailer instead of a gateway modem/router combo like the Actiontec

Can a actiontec gateway wireless DSL router be connected to a comcast cable modem?I have an old DSL wireless router (gateway), can I use this as my wireless router with comcast cable internet, or do i need...


You could do it, but it's a bit of a pain in the ***** and probably not worth the hassle.
Actiontec DSL gateway was not designed to act as a "proper" router and therefore you won't be able to make it act like one permanently (well, unless there's a hacked firmware out there somewhere ;).
Of course, since it runs linux, you can telnet into it and manually set up the ip addresses on both wireless/wired interfaces and the necessary route between them. It will then work as a wireless access point for your comcast cable modem, but any changes will be lost every time you reboot the actiontec.
I've done it in the past with similar setup but quickly got tired of having to console the actiontec to add the ips and routes every time it crashed -and eventually got a proper wireless router.
So-it can be done, just not easily.
Have fun,
Raf

I have a dsl modem and an actiontec gt701-wg gateway


Yes this is a normal method to setup a wireless network.
To set-up and secure the wireless router from unauthorized access, follow these steps :-
1. Connect the wireless router to your computer with a LAN cable.
2. Start your browser and enter the router's configuration URL IP address.
3. Enter the router setup, login and password
4. Change the admin password
5. Go to the wireless settings and change the default SSID and turn off SSID broadcast.
6. Setup encryption key the strongest is WPA2 (if not then WPA).
7. For further security measures - turn on MAC address filtering and enter the MAC address of the wireless cards on the computer/s you want to connect to this wireless router.
8. Record the settings you have made and keep it in a safe place and Save the settings.
9. Configure the wireless cards on the computer/s with the SSID and encryption settings of the router.
10. Remove the LAN cable between the router and the computer then the computers should be able to connect to the router.

Actiontec GT701-WG won't operate wirelessly


In looking on the internet the unit is a DSL gateway. Trying to use it on cable internet is not a real good way to set up your network because I believe the router is waiting for a DSL sync before the services turn on. I would spend the money and pick up a Linksys or Netgear G router, there around $50.

Play on xbox live via wireless


First your setup should be, wall (isp) > Actiontec DSL Gateway > Zyxel router > your computer

If that is already setup right, try the ip address of 192.168.1.1, some routers use this ip rather that 192.168.0.1

Hope that helps.
