That is not a configuration problem, that is a signal problem.

It means that the signal does not have enough power to reach all part of the house.

A way to fix this is by installing a repeater, like this one Linksys WRE54G-UK 54Mbps Wireless Range Expander

Your router is a G, not very powerful. An alternative is buying a more powerful N router, like the ones below.

Does the actiontec gt701 have a wps button


nope, doesn't look like it. It might support the use of WPS pin setup, but my guess is that you just need to go the traditional route of connecting your devices using the wep/wpa2 key

Trying to change from actiontec gt701 to actiontec gt701-wg. after new modem is hooked up, internet light stays red. switched by to old modem and all is fine. anyone know why internet light stayed red?


The reason why your internet light is red for the actiontec gt701-wg is because it is not yet configure. You need to access the gui of this router. enter the username and password for your internet connection. You can contact your ISP provider so they can walk you through for the steps on how to configure your new router.

The old router has green light because it was already configured by your ISP provider.

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.
