Question about Actiontec (5GE583000-01) Router

1 Answer

I have no idea if I have the right thing afterall

I bought the MI424WR Actiontec.... off of Ebay. It was advertised as a router for the XBOX live. Anyway, I gave it to my son, we have a desktop which receives Comcast internet through the phone box (this big RCA box that evidently runs my home....), it didn't come with any type of setup instructions. The guy said just plug it in and it would be ready to go....evidently not. Can you help me?

If your desktop is connected to the RCA box, then disconnect the desktop and replace it with the router... so the connection goes from the RCA box(cable modem) - actiontec router - desktop computer. You may also want run the setup disk that came with your router, now if you don't have one you have to manually configure the router using it's web based interface.

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.
