Question about Actiontec (GT701) Modem
It sounds like, somehow, an antivirus or firewall app is blocking access to those sites. I'd check there, first. Then, if no help, you may have to simply uninstall and reinstall the modem. If you have your manual, reset the modem and follow the steps to install it as if you just bought it. If the modem has a battery, remove it to completely re-set the unit. http://support.actiontec.com/doc_files/GT701R_QW05.5_User_Manual_188.8.131.52.7.6.pdf

Did you Unplug the Modem from Your Electrical Outlet, AND Unplug the Telephone Line coming in too, for 5 minutes?? Give "it" a chance to Completely Re-set/Reboot..I have a GT701 DSL Modem, that's what I did, and it worked fine. "IF" that doesn't work I would go to "Support" at either Action-Tech or Your DSL/IP Provider. Hope this Helps you.

There are a few ways to get this going again.
Goto your control panel;network places;show network connections
Right click your connection, disable it, unplug the power cord from the modem itself for 10 seconds, click the reset button on it, plug it back in, enable the connection, repair.
You can also go into your command prompt.
You should see 3 sets of numbers- IP address, subnet mask, and default gateway. If all the numbers are zero, that's a problem!
type this next, remember to have a space before the forward slash:
Try connecting and let me know what happens

If the DSL light is blinking it means that there is no DSL carrier signal to your modem. Check the phone line and make sure you have no open lines and filters are on all the devices hooked up to your phone system except your modem. You can check for an open line by hooking up a phone to the phone line going into your modem and listen for a dial tone.
