Cannot connect to admin on GT704WG

I just got this Actiontec GT704WG modem/router. I reset the box and then tried to connect via web brouser and but no response. I tried to ping that address and no response. I can sometimes ping sometimes that works. Also, my wireless laptop will not pick up a signal from the GT704WG. It picks up signals from my neighbors, but not the modem/router siting right next to the pc. Do you think the GT704WG is bad? Anything else I can try?

Re: 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 - is the default login - so should work now - if not the router is faulty whats the status of all the lights on the router

Actiontec GT704WGB from Verizon is working through Earthlink yet Verizon still thinks it is providing service and want to set up my "account"

Sounds like you have Verizon software on your computer. The router has nothing to do with that. Go into control panel > add remove programs and remove the Verizon software.

I upgraded the hard drive ram and OS on a 3 year old macbook core 2 duo. Now it won't connect to my wireless network. It will connect to wireless network at the local coffee shop. I have tried rebooting...

All you need to correct is entering in the WEP key for the wireless network- you will connect, but will be unable to browse wirelessly otherwise. The WEP key is found on the bottom of the actiontec- unless you changed it to something else- at which point you would need to log into the modem to find out your WEP key.( on a working computer in internet explorer/safari/firefox, un/pw admin, password or admin, admin; wireless settings)

No wireless connection after powercycle

Sounds to me as if the Actiontec GT704WG has died. If it is still under warranty, get it serviced. If it is not under warranty, You can try to find en electronic friend to take a look at it. If you do not have such a friend, Maybe someone else here can help you. But you might want to consider a new unit.

Username and password

if this is fresh from the box, the factory default will be (username - admin) and the (password - admin). but if this already configured by the user before, all you have to do is restart it so that it will back into factory default.

simply press the "reset button" for 10 sec...
then try to login as a factory default then configure it again

User name and password

Username: "admin" and Password:"password", unless you changed it. If you did, just reset the modem to the factory settings by keeping the reset button pressed, and admin and password should work again.

I've forgotten the password?

if you have changed the password the only way is to reset the router

there must be a little button on the back or bottom which you can push with a pin, press that and admin/zoom works again

Web log rest on actiontec gt704wg

According to the user's manual, the user interface doesn't seem to provide an option to "reset" the log. You can view it, and set how often it refreshes while you're looking at it, but I don't see any way to delete or reset the data.
