Question about Actiontec GT704WG Wireless Router (gs583ad3-01)
I am trying to use the GT704GW(GW) to extend my home LAN with wireless access capability. The GW will not allow wireless devices and its local ethernet ports to be on separate subnets. I cannot ping from wirelessly attached laptop to the internet through my LAN. Altho I can ping the LANs default gateway and can ping addresses on the internet from the test ping utility on the GW. I tried introducing static routes to direct all outbound traffic to the LAN default gateway to no avail. Is there a way to use the WG as a regular access point? I am not using DSL. It seems that it will only allow routing to the DSL port. Thanks.. JohnA
Go to the configure Home / ethernet connection in the bridge section check the box for wireless access point.

Disable firewall on all devices. All types of security sofwares should also be disabled in order to ping each devices.
