Re: How do i reset my wireless modem

Somewhere on the case there should be a tiny little hole with reset labelled on it and if you stick a bent paper clip in it and hold it for about 30 seconds it should reset the whole thing to factory defaults.

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 (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.
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.

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.

Hi Susie
With related to your particular issue it seems like that your broadband modem is not configured for the router. There are basically 2 types of connection. DSL and Cable modem. Verizon, ATT are DSL and comcast other providers give you a normal cable broadband connection. If its comcast make sure the cable from the comcast modem is going to the internet port in the linksys router and also make sure that there is a system connection the linksys router and the cable from the system goes to any of LAN 1, 2, 3 and 4 ports. Then reset your cable modem by using a pin and inserting to the reset hole in the modem. You could use the same step to reset your linksys router as well .If its a verizon or dsl connection you need to put normally your username and password in the router page. here is the link to how to configure linksys for your internet modem.
Here is a video as well on it?

Also post the linksys router model. your ISP modem model number and also information on how many systems are wired to the router and wireless and let me know if you need more help.

Thank you

problems like this usually happens in the properties of the wireless setup of your connection. last resort here is to reset your modem, but you have to reconfigure as well the settings of your modem in general. for your problem i suggest you call verizon tech support, 1800-567-6789 and say tech support on the voice prompt, they know what to do with your problem. had the same problem before and they were able to fix it, i remember they had me reset my modem.

Wireless-G Linksys Router No Signal with Verizon Modem

The first thing I would recommend is to reset the router to its factory defaults. Then reconfigure it according to your Verizon settings.

There are a number of things you need to set, in order for the router to be able to talk to Verizon correctly. These things such as dns name servers, the ip address you connect to (whether it is static or dynamic), and things of this nature. They should have given you all of this information, and if they did not you will need to contact them first or you will not be successful in connecting.

To be more specific regarding the error message, I need to know the specific model you have as well as the version of the software.

If you need additional help just post another question here and it will notify me that you have.

ISP blocking my internet connection.


-- do you know your verizon username and password?
-- what is the operating system of your computer?
-- have you tried connecting your computer directly to the modem to check if you can get online?

you may try this and see if this help solve your problem. make sure your computer is directly connected to the router

Step 1: Shutdown the computer.
Step 2: reset the router while power on then Unplug the router’s power cable.
Step 3: Unplug the Broadband modem’s power cable and wait for 30 seconds.
Step 4: Plug in the Broadband modem’s power cable and wait for its lights to appear stable.
Step 5: Plug in the router's power cable once the modem’s lights appear stable.
Step 6: Power on the computer on and configure the router settings, you need to input your verizon username and password on the router setup page then save the settings.
Step 7: test the Internet connection.

if this still didnot work, upgrade the firmware of your router

Hook up westell 327w to linksys router

the wireless won't work. i have the same problem. westell modems aren't compatible with wireless function on some laptops therefore routing signal through a wireless router allows that. it can be done, i've done it but after modem was reset having issues. keep searching it can be done...

thanks for the vague and non-informative answer though whoever that was.
