Question about Actiontec Electronics (GT724WGR) Retail DSL Wireless Gateway Router

1 Answer

Gt724wgr modem does not respond to

Holding reset for 5-7 seconds does not work as green power light does not change to amber.

No matter what I do I can't connect to the gt724wgr internal configuration pages. It is as if t is not there.

Old modem works just fine, gets internal config pages.

Any other way to get back to factory default besides reset button?

Try holding the reset for 15-20 seconds. 5-7 seconds isn't long enough to have it reset.

I have a Netgear WNR2000 v4 router. We recently had a power outage.Power came back on in 5 seconds.The cable modem is fine,however the router ONLY shows me a solid green light for power, nothing else.

I would just do the reset, this should allow you to access at factory defaults. (I hold button in for 10 sec).

A solid green (power?) light is good
LAN ports should only light if connected
WiFi port should light if set to active

I cannot connect to the internet using my netgear n150 wireless router. The internet light is orange but the modem is working fine and I can connect to the router itself.

When the router is turned on, the Internet light turns amber for about 20 seconds and then turns green. If the light does not turn green, the router has a problem. If the Internet light is still amber 1 minute after turning on power to the router: a. The Internet is not accessible. Confirm that you have the correct internet setting. b. Clear the router's configuration to factory defaults. This will set the router's IP address to c. Turn the power off and back on to see if the router recovers. If its still not working, reset to factory defaults. You can restore the factory default configuration settings that reset the router's user name to admin, the password to password, and the IP address to To restore the factory default configuration settings: 1. Use a sharp object such as a pen or a paper clip to press and hold the restore factory settings button, located on the rear panel of the router, for about 5 seconds, until the Power light begins to blink (see "Back Panel" on page 4). 2. Release the restore factory settings button, and wait for the router to restart, and for the Power light to stop blinking and become solid green. The factory default settings will be restored so that you can access the router from your Web browser using the factory defaults.

How can i fix the amber light on modem flashing?

Step 1 Locate the reset pinhole on the back of the unit.

Step 2 With the unit powered on, press and hold the Reset button.

Step 3 Hold the Reset button for about 10 seconds.

Step 4 Release the Reset button.

Step 5 The unit will reboot. Allow 20-30 seconds before reconnecting.

Step 6 The device is now at factory defaults.

Note: Do not recycle power during the reset procedure.

When it says hold for about 10 seconds, don't hold for more than ten seconds or the procedure will likely fail, if ten seconds doesn't work try 5 seconds.

How do I resolve my internet port light being amber on my wgr614v7 netgear router

Recommend that you go one step at a time.

1) unplug the wireless router.
2) reset your Cable modem or DSL modem. Wait until the lights show the Wide area network or WAN is working correctly before applying power to the Netgear wireless router.

3) After a minute or so, its signals should change from amber to bright green.

Repeat if necessary. If this doesn't provide the connectivity that you need, a call to your Internet Service provider may be necessary.

Try first resetting the router by pressing the reset button of the router for 15 seconds while power is ON and then try to reconfigure it again but if still not working this can already mean that the router is bad and needs replacement.....
