I am going to make the assumption that you have the Actiontec GT704WG?

You will need to login in to the router using address: http://192.168.1.1

If you've never changed your username and password there, then you should use the default: admin and password. (You should really change that too!)

Click on Security.

You will need to add the port under the Applications area under the security settings.

There are rules established there to allow your game to play, just follow the screen prompts.

Your user guide is available here:

It wouldn't hurt to keep a copy.

I have an GT704-WG Rev B; Firmware= 30.17.0 which is connected to my (Macintosh) iMac running OS 10.6.7. Until about 6 months ago my older laptop (Mac, iBook, PowerPC purchased in 2001) was able to use...


Turn the Verizon router off.
Turn the ActionTec router off.
Turn the Verizon router on, and wait until its pattern of lights settles-down to a steady pattern, i.e., fully rebooted.
Turn the ActionTec router on.
Turn the ActionTec router on, and wait until its pattern of lights settles-down to a steady pattern, i.e., fully rebooted.
Use an Ethernet cable to connect from one of the LAN ports on the ActionTec router to the network port on your iMac.
You should now have Internet access.

The next step is to start Safari on the Mac, and connect to the web-server "inside" the ActionTec router, e.g., try http://192.168.0.1 and http://192.168.1.1 and http://192.168.2.1

Login to the router, and run the Wireless Networking Setup Wizard, to configure the wireless adapter:
* SSID -- the name of your network
* encryption-level, e.g., use 'WPA' or 'WPA2'
* password for your SSID

Once you've done this, any of your wireless devices should be able to connect to that SSID, and gain Internet access.

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 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

Once i open my router how do i actually open the ports for xbox tcp80,udp88,exctra im using a action tec gt704wg wireless router


http://www.actiontec.com/support/product_details.php?pid=40&typ=doc
Your manual above it also shows you how to open ports in there.
Also if you go to http://portforward.com/, they will show you how to do it too. Go to the link below.
http://www.portforward.com/networking/staticip-xbox360.htm



Actiontec Gateways and Routers are compatible with the Xbox. However, it may be necessary to forward the ports used by the Xbox, in the Actiontec Gateway or Router. Without Port Forwarding, the Xbox Connection Test may report a "NAT" rating of "STRICT" or "MODERATE", rather than "OPEN".
It is also explained below...

Can't get NAT setting to Open for xbox 360. Won't connect to other users with open setting


The NAT is set to the actiontec modem/router so the next troubleshooting is to open the ports of the XBox ports 80, 3074, 53 TCP and 88, 3074, 53 UDP. To allow the XBox on the network using your modem/router.

Linking wrt54g with actiontec m1424wr


You need to check the ip address of your actiontec router, the default ip address of linksys router is 192.168.1.1, they should not be the same or else you will not able to connect the router to the internet.

To access the router web configuration

Let me also give you the site on how to add the linksys router to another existing router.

The linksys has 4 LAN port and 1 "Internet" port on the back - we ONLY use the LAN ports NEVER the Internet port - because your existing router is connected to the Internet - your linksys is connected to the LAN

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.
