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.

Verizon GT704WG DSL Modem wants me to install software


If my memory serves me, I didn't install the software for my Actiontec modem/router combo. I call Verizon and told them I refused to install the software and they helped step me through getting rid of this garbage. You should never have to install software to get a modem or router to work as any software the comes with it, is simply used to provide easier configuration.

Since I couldn't find anything about bypassing this software, I would suggest contacting Verizon directly. Their technical support should be able to assist you.

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.
