Question about Actiontec GT704WG Wireless Router (gs583ad3-01)
Can my modem also be used as a print server? If yes how do I accomplish this?
You can use a computer as a print server, and the router will allow other computers to connect to it. But other than that, you'll need to buy a print server separately and hook it into your router. You can set your computer up as a print server by installing the printer on the computer and setting up file and printer sharing through the network setup wizard in Windows XP, this can be found in Control Panel. Once that is set up, do the same for all other networked computers and then you will be able to install the printer on all other computers and print wirelessly (or wired) from any computer connected to the router. However, the computer the printer is physically connected to will need to stay on all the time, or at least be on when you need to print from another computer. I'm not quite sure if you can get a router with a built in print server anyway. But you can certainly achieve what you're looking to do - but perhaps not an all in one package like you were asking. I hope this helps you.

HTTP Web-browser Access
Most HTML browsers can be used, though Internet Explorer 4.0 or Netscape 4.0 are recommended. IE 2.0 and Netscape 2.0 and their predecessors are not supported. The HTML interface can be used to access the LAN (or WAN) IP address or it can be used with FTP to upload and download files to and from the router.
To log on to the modem via HTML:
1 Bring up your favorite web browser.
2 Enter the Ethernet IP address of the router (10.0.0.1 or Speedstream) in the "Location" or "Address" area where you enter web page addresses.
3 Refer to "HTML Web Interface" on page 20.
HTML Web Interface
The HTML interface for the router first displays a page showing the current configuration of the router. The first page also provides links to the following functions:
Leads to a more detailed interface with several links that allow more in-depth configuration of functions available on the router. This interface provides the following links:
• Configuration Procedures
• Status and Statistics
• Command List
This is where the user manual ends. I would suggest clicking "Configuration Procedures" and find the section for configuring Network Address Translation (NAT).
In that section (if it exists), you'll want to provide the private IP address of the computer running the Telnet server and forward port 23 to this IP address.
If NAT capabilities do not exist, I would consider changing the router to Gateway mode (described in the user manual) and buying your own router to handle the NAT firewall.
