    BTW, it's not that I don't know where to find the manual, it's just that the instructions tend to be ISP specific. you can choose from 11 704 manuals here http://support.actiontec.com/doc_files/



    When you get the right one, look under wireless security.

It should be pretty straightforward. The ISP specific stuff is generally in how the PPPoE is set up.
You should be able to log into the router by going to 192.168.0.1
UN: admin
PW: <is blank> change it when you log in.
Go to wireless on the left hand side. Select WPA. Give a password in pre-shared key. Save your settings and you should be godd to go.

My DHCP is not assigning a dynamic address to one of my seven wired devices. I've had to switch over to a stati


On the second router just plug a port cable in from your main routers port into the wan port and then be sure to change the second routers gateway and IP address to a different number. Say that your main router IP is 198.18.1.1 and for your second router IP you could use 10.10.10.1 or what ever combo you want and then you should be able to use both routers together. Is this what you are trying to do?
Linksys routers as well as all routers with DHCP enabled should be able to handle up to 255 separate IP address's for a LAN network. Is the firmware of the Linksys the latest? If not, down load the latest firmware and flash the router to update it. Or, check out third party firmwares like Tomato to flash that tired Linksys and turn it into a real router.

Hi I want to know on how to setup the verizon Modem/Router I already have a Westell 6100G and i want to upgrade to the new one called Verizon Wireless modem/router model:GT704WG.


Are you on Consumer Verizon DSL? Fair warning if you are using Business Static- the Actiontec is a poor choice due to issues working on a static IP circuit. - I'd use a 6110 and a third party router! However, by default, the only thing you would need to do to setup the modem is go through the activation page when you plug the modem in. If you require an user name and password, it would set that up. Bar any problems, you can contact Verizon technical support since the Actiontec Gateway is fully supported.

I want to add a port to my Actiontec router, whats involved in do


I am going to make the assumption that you have the Actiontec GT704WG?

You will need to login in to the router using address: http://192.168.1.1

If you've never changed your username and password there, then you should use the default: admin and password. (You should really change that too!)

Click on Security.

You will need to add the port under the Applications area under the security settings.

There are rules established there to allow your game to play, just follow the screen prompts.
