Re: Laptops not able to connect

Hi, Run a command window (Start, Run, type "cmd" without the quotes, Type "ping, it should answer back> Reply from 192.....TTL=xx, if yes, then you are connected to the router; If no, type "ipconfig /all" to check your IP settings which should match your router's DHCP assigned numbers, others you can try are /flushdns, /release, /renew/ Type "ping, it should answer back> Reply from 209.....TTL=xx, if yes then you are connected to the router and have access to internet; If no, and yes to 192..., your router is not granting you internet access or the router itself does not have internet access. Review what corrective measure/steps you have taken earlier that could have affected your internet access. Make sure that your Default Gateway is the IP add of your router. Post back should you need additional information. Good luck and kind regards.

Which # on the bottom of my actiontec is the WEP #?

The WEP encryption key is setup by the user, it is not a fixed key.
Theencryption key secures your data from unauthorized access. The router's password is a Passphrase or the WEP or WPA orWPA2 encryption key. The Passphrase generates the WEP or WPA or WPA2 encryptionkey and this is in the router's wireless settings. To connect to your wireless router, configure the router'swireless settings ie SSID, plus the WPAor WPA2 encryption key and then configure wireless cards in the laptops and orcomputers with these router's wireless settings. Then the laptops and desktopcomputers can communicate with your wireless router.

Actiontec GT704WG doesnt connect to internet

HI! all your computer is connected except for one, you are connected to to the local network but cant get an internet connection, I dont see any problem with your wireless connection bcoz you are connected to the lan, check the security settings of your browser on your windows vista, go to internet option and security, lower it down to medium security, so that you can access the internet or try using other browser like firefox or google chrome.. check your firewall settings as well on your windows vista..

Need to find existing WEP ID, do not want to reset my WEP ID

Flip over your ACTIONTEC and you would see there the default wep key. If you've had it personalized before, you have to open the configuration page of your modem and check for the wep key.

To go to the configuration page, open your internet explorer and type in on the address bar. that is the default address for your actiontec. type in your username and password when prompted. the usual default it ADMIN for username and PASSWORD (lowercase) for password. or you could also try ADMIN (uname)-ADMIN(pword).

click on the wireless settings icon and then click on basic security settings. scroll down on the middle of the page and you will see there your wep key.

if you are unable to open the configuration page because you forgot your username and password, you can reset your modem so that it the uname and password will go back to its factory default settings (admin/password). However, if you are using pppoe connection (authentication using username and password to connect to network) you can lose your connection and you would have to configure your router. so be careful not to press the reset button at the back.

Windows Vista won't connect to my actiontec

If you have disabled broadcasting of the SSID you will havw to tell Vista to connect even if the SSID is not being broadcast.
There is a checkbox on the wireless connection pannel for doing that and there is also that option when you setup the connection. If the SSID is not broadcasting Vista will not connect until you tell it to. You can check if that's the problem by enabling the SSID broadcast and seeing if it connects. If yes, then find that checkbox (sorry, I'm not on my Vista system and don't know all the steps to get there offhand) and mark it; then disable the router from broadcasting again. It should connect every time after that.

Nonexistant customer service by Actiontec

After my second call to Actiontec ended with the help desh hanging up on me, Actiontec did respond to an emailed plea for help and prompty provided a complex script which they labeled confidential to address this problem. The bottom line seems to be Verizon either installed hardware that is incompatable with an Exchange server or they did not configure the insallation correctly. In so many words, Actiontec feels it is a Verizon problem. I wish me luck in getting to the right place to deal with that, even though I am a Verizon stockholder.

Actiontec GT701-WG doesn't recognize a DVR on the LAN

I think the screen you may be looking at is the Application layer forwarding screen, the drop down box being populated by DHCP clients, that's why it isn't seeing the DVR. The DMZ Hosting screen doesn't have a drop down box, it only requires an IP address to be entered.

Hope this helps!

Check to see if the SSID is being broadcast. That could probably you be your problem.
