Question about Actiontec (GT704WG) Router

1 Answer

Firewall issue? A firewall is blocking my music download program (mp3Rocket). I turn off other firewalls and still a problem. Can the firewall in the GT704WG be doing it? I received it from Verizon and they configured it/set it up with my Verizon DSL service.

Yes this is possible you can turn off the fire wall or you can open up the port your down loading program uses to communicate with its peers. in the menu I believe you will find a tab for port forwarding. They may even list the program you are using. in any event here is a link on port forwarding that may help: http://portforward.com/english/routers/port_forwarding/Actiontec/GT704-WGv2/BitTorrent.htm Subsittute your ports for the one on the web page and you should be connected in no time.

Unwanted program need help finding and eliminating same


Most blocking of downloads are caused by the Firewall software installed. Most allow you to change the settings, to allow the download. Otherwise switch it off while you download the software and then turn it back on. Some Firewalls can go faulty so you could try an update or restore the firewall software.

My internet download manager is not working as it is blocked. How can I unblock it?


Hi, go into your firewall program and look for a blocked programs folder and remove or untick the download manager program.
Can you elaborate more on what your download manager is called and what firewall you are using?
eg are you using Zonealarm as your firewall or are you using a Microsoft program?
Are you using Free Download manager or something else?
Regards,
Steve

Cannot connect to internet - get told cannot connect the web page. No addresses connect....


it is almost certainly your firewall or other security software blocking the connection Make sure that your firewall program is configured to allow internet access.Besides personal firewalls, other security programs, including Norton or Symantec Antivirus, can block internet access or cause other connection issues, especially after the browser is updated.

How to use mp3rocket and to download songs


hi

here the solution

  1. Step 1 Download and install the software from the MP3 Rocket website, but be careful. The basic version of the program is free, but you can pay up to $34 for a "pro" version if you want more than the basic ability to download and share files.
  2. Step 2 Choose the type of file you'd like to download by clicking on one of the icons in the left panel or select "All Types."
  3. Step 3 Enter the file name of the file you want to find in the box in the left panel, and click on "search" or select one of the categories from the toolbar across the top, which will give you access to the more popular music files.
  4. Step 4 Select the genre of music you want from the list in the left panel and names of artists and songs will appear in the right panel.
  5. Step 5 Double click on the artist and song you want and the software will begin searching the network for all files containing that information. They are then displayed as a list in the right panel.
  6. Step 6 Click on the version you want to download and the program will download it to your computer.
please rate me..

thank you.
