You need to verify your connection type w/ Centurylink- they may run on DHCP which is a different connection protocol than PPPoE. If you have a static IP address, fair warning: the Verizon Actiontec is historically tetchy on static and NOT to be used as a primary modem/router- it will lose settings.

It sounds like a firmware issue or problem. Have you tried updating the firmware of the router? If not, download the latest firmware from actiontec website and install it to your router. Note: After successfully updating the firmware, you need to hard reset the router. Press the reset button at the back of the router for 30 second then unplug the power for 30 seconds as well then plug it back n.

Verizon AGT704WG modem/router conflicts w/ T-Mobile WRTU54G-TM


your Verizon AGT704WG is a gateway, meaning, it's a modem that has router functions (wireless, support for multiple pc's etc.). If you want to connect your T-Mobile wireless router, it would cause certain conflicts with your Verizon 704WG because it is also a wireless router. That's why you can't configure it.

So, if you want to connect your T-Mobile wireless router, you would have to set up your 704WG first to BRIDGE MODE. Which means you would have to disable its routing functions so that only the T-Mobile will function as your router and will not cause any conflict.

If you want to set your GT704WG to bridge mode, follow these steps.

1. Hardwire (connected using ethernet cable) your compuer to your 704WG.
2. On your Internet Explorer or Firefox, type in 192.168.1.1 (default address for your GT704WG). You will then see a verizon page which is the configuration page of your gateway (for newer modems, the background is usually red and black).
3. When prompted, enter username and password. default username is ADMIN, password is PASSWORD or if you've called Verizon tech support, password would be ADMIN (lower case).
4. Click on the MY NETWORK icon from the top bar.
5. Click NETWORK CONNECTIONS from the left navigation box.
6. Click BROADBAND CONNECTIONS (DSL)
7. Under the VC’s section, click the EDIT icon.
8. Select BRIDGE on the PROTOCOL drop down box.
9. Select ROUTED BRIDGE in the BRIDGE MODE field.
10. Click on APPLY and then click on YES to confirm reset.

You would notice that the wireless light on your gt704WG will be off. That's ok because that would indicate that your modem is in bridge mode.

Powercycle (turn off modem for 30 secs and turn it back on) your Actiontec.

That should do it. Good luck.

DSL line disconnects on WRT54GS only


Try to change the LAN IP address of your router to 192.168.2.1 by accessing the router's Setup page. You also need to set your Westell modem to "full-bridge mode". You need to ask assistance from your ISP to bridge the modem. After that, set-up the Linksys router to PPPoE then power cycle it.

Nonexistant customer service by Actiontec


After my second call to Actiontec ended with the help desh hanging up on me, Actiontec did respond to an emailed plea for help and prompty provided a complex script which they labeled confidential to address this problem. The bottom line seems to be Verizon either installed hardware that is incompatable with an Exchange server or they did not configure the insallation correctly. In so many words, Actiontec feels it is a Verizon problem. I wish me luck in getting to the right place to deal with that, even though I am a Verizon stockholder.

Constant intermittent loss of connectivity, even with new gt704wg router


Hi,
It might be that you have a voltage drop. I noticed that this modem is very sensitive to voltage 'dips' and it will 'reset' itself if even the slightest dip in power hits it.
I have a A/C that sucks power when it cycles and every time it does I lose the internet connection. So I set up a 12 volt battery with an DC to AC inverter and run the modem off of battery power.

That might be the problem your having.

Intermitent DSL/Internet Connnectivity 2701 Router


Hii,

* If you can connect after disconnecting power and reconnecting, it means there is formation of static charge on modem

* Check whether there is any cordless phone or any other satellite devices next to the modem. If so, move the modem 10 feet away.

* If your modem is placed on carpet, please place it on wooden desk

For guest:
Do you see the power is also interrupted while loosing connection? If so try plugging the modem into different socket. Dont waste money for simple problems.

If this doesnt work, please dont rate me down, if it works, please rate me as fixya!!! lol...

Have a nice day!!!
