Yes it cn as long as the printer has an eathernet port on it. You would then need to install it through the network when seting it up on both computers. I hope this helps you. Also do not for get to vote for this solusion.

Can I upgrade the antenna on my actiontec gt701wg router?


There are a few things thatcan cause you to lose wireless connection with your wireless router.1. Weak signal strength,check the signal strength on your wireless card. If it is weak move thewireless router away from brick or concrete walls and if possible locatethe wireless router higher up.2. Have you secured yourwireless router from people near your from unauthorized access? i.e. change thedefault password, setup encryption use WPA2 or WPA, change the default SSID,and turn off SSID broadcast, and for added protection, enable MAC addressfiltering which allows only the MAC address/es of your wireless card/s toconnect to your wireless router.3. You could be gettinginterference from electrical sources such as air conditioners, arc welders,washing machines etc. If so, the power supply to the wireless routers andcomputers etc should be connected to a surge protection power board, betterstill connect your computer equipment to an UPS (Uninterrupted PowerSupply). 4. Check the channels ofthe wireless routers and access points in your area and change the broadcastchannel on your wireless router to an unused channel or one that is currentlyused but has the weakest signal strength. This will minimize interferencewith your wireless router from other wireless routers and accesspoints in your area.

I configured my actiontec wireless router but when i try to connet from may lapto or my celphone it says "ip failed" what do i have to do ??? can any body help me?.... please!! i need your help


Connecting between cpmputers and phone may be least acheievable. The phone may simply require seaparate entity functions because of the microscopic nature of resources on the phone device. For example, computer to computer is possible because the computers have several spaces to hold prorgams that integrate before connectivity os attained. Phones only have enough memory spaces to contain the signla logo and tele texting for the most part to talk voice mesaging. Consult with the telephone provider for alternative methods to connecting similar devices.

Actiontec GT704WG doesnt connect to internet


HI! all your computer is connected except for one, you are connected to to the local network but cant get an internet connection, I dont see any problem with your wireless connection bcoz you are connected to the lan, check the security settings of your browser on your windows vista, go to internet option and security, lower it down to medium security, so that you can access the internet or try using other browser like firefox or google chrome.. check your firewall settings as well on your windows vista..

Using Linksys WRT54G as router connected to ActionTec with FIOS


You must keep everything on the same subnet. Only allow the router to be DHCP and keep everything on 192.168.1.x subnet. You are going to have alot of problems talking across subnets

Setting up routher


Try setting the router to factory defaults by holding the reset button on the back of the router for 10-15 seconds. After the router resets, open the CMD window on the computer by clicking start/run type cmd, type ipconfig /release then ipconfig /renew this should make the connection from the computer to the router.
