Question about Actiontec (GT704WG) Router

1 Answer

Networking problem Hello, I got 2 problem, first i got dsl from verizon, using win xp, westell 327w modem/router combo, everything just fine just only my laptop couldn't connect the wireless even thought my laptop can see it, but my bro's laptop can connect it no problem at all (our wireless driver is updated). I reset it to factory default but no help. We both use dell 1505E, the weird thing i can connect the same modem/router with same isp at my friend house, and although he leave every as default too. Second my actiontec GT704WG, i and my bro have to reset a modem to browse the net after a while because we can not browse on an existing ie or firefox or start new one, even though my skype is still connected as i was on a video chat with my friend, download on azureus. I have read some post on fixya that said some about DNS problem ?? i tried but still not working. Both are modem/router combo and were set dynamic ip. Wonder if you could help me, thanks. Note: I have some basic knowledge about networking, just enough to set up from default modem/router to an secure network, file sharing, mac filter, block web service, port forward-trigger, lease time. More other advance I still need to learn.

Re: networking problem

Ok, I would try resseting both at the some time. Then checking the mac filter to make sure that both u and ur bro can access it. it could also be that you card is broken and needs to be replaced. I hope this helps!

I have Verizon DSL service on my Westell 327w. It

whenever the connection drops, is the DSL light blinking?
because, it is just normal for the E1 light to blink, but the DSL light should be solid at all times.

It can be a possible issue with the cable or the LAN card, but you still need to have your line checked by Verizon to make sure that it is not a modem or a network issue.

Switching DSL Modems

Your dsl line stays the same. you're only changing your dsl equipment.

if you are not able to go online using the 327w, you might need to have it configured depending on the type of connection that you have. if you are using PPPoE (which means you enter a username and password on the modem to connect to verizon) you need your 327w configured for pppoe. but if you are using DHCP connection, any modem or routers should be plug and play.

Most verizon customers from the west coast uses DHCP while those on the east coast uses PPPoE.

You can call tech support to make sure which type of connection you are using.

Changing from DSL to Road Runner Turbo

I'm sorry to say but you cannot bypass the modem capability of the DSL Westell Modem/router because that is really made to function as a DSL modem and a router at the same time, so the best way to make everything work here since you change from DSL to Cable internet just need to get a wireless router like a Linksys WRT54G that can make everything work again like before.....

Westel 327W no longer accessing VPN

It sounds like your company has changed some settings for access into thier local intranet. Your IT guy will have to figure out what's wrong, becuase he would be the one with the knowledge of your companies settings. Perhaps they changed the shared-key, or something in the security settings.

Another note: If you have recently changed/upgraded any installations of firewalls or internet security software, check to make sure it's not blocking any of the IP address or ports you need open to access your company network.
