Wireless connection with Actiontec GT724wgr

I have ATT DSL and a Actiontec GT724wgr. Desktop is connected via ethernet and has worked great for 6 months. Just got a laptop and I cant seem to get it to connect wirelessly, correction....it claims to be connected but IE page will not load. Signal is good, no firewalls. Did a ping test on the laptop and there are no problems, came back fine. Could there be something else that is running besides the IGD( I ditched the IGD)? Nothing else is listed as running. Actiontec says its the laptop, Laptop company says its the router....of course. Laptop is IBM T41 running Windows XP sp3.

SOURCE: how do i connect my actiontec GT704WG to my ATT dsl ?

You need to input your AT&T user name and password in the router's setup page and set the modem to PPoPE.
Here is the user manual: DSL setup is on page 26

SOURCE: Cant configure the router on my Actiontec gt724wgr

If you connect the computer directly to the modem, does it work?
If that works then the modem is working.
Now connect the computer to the router and the modem to the router.
You will need to open the set up page of the router to check the settings of the router.
You can set up the router without the CD also.
It is very easy.

Can you broadcast wireless signal from connecting to ethernet with no DSL input


Yes, all the computers in your home (wired or wireless) can communicate with each other, via the router, even when the router has *NO* connection (through DSL-modem or cable-modem) to the Internet.

Cant get my notebook to connect wirelessly to the router/net


It does sound like you may need to upgrade firmware. Not sure what OSyou are running?

You might like to try:

1. Disable Windows Firewall

2.In Internet Options Control Panel go to the connection tab and then theLAN Settings where you can uncheck the "Automatically detect settings"button.

3. If you have any third party software, I would get ridof this and ensure that the"Windows Zero Configuration" in the Servicesmenu is set to "Automatic" and the status is started.

Interestingly,Anti Virus programs sometimes interfere with wireless set up - youcould see if it helps by disabling it whilst configuring your wireless.It might also be worth trying to connect without any encryption code& see if that will connect - you can then sort out the encryption.

Gt724wgr modem does not respond to 192.168.0.1


try holding the reset for 15-20 seconds. 5-7 seconds isn't long enough to have it reset.
