I cannot access the ip address in order to change my wireless password for my actiontec GT704WG? It is 192.168.0.2--but takes me to a search page


it will be very uncommon for router to have .0.2 address by default. try to access it at 192.168.0.1 or 192.168.0.254
for that exact model the default is 192.168.0.1 as stated in the manual.

you can check that very easy, open command prompt (Start Menu -> Run -> type "cmd" then press Enter), type "ipconfig" and press Enter. the Gateway address will be listed (under your ip and netmask)

this is the user manual for more details on the device.

Hello. I bought this modem with wi fi ,dsl router. How to set it to use this modem as a router.I want to connect my pc with lan cord & use wifi connection with my laptop and phones.


Turn DSL-router off.
Turn Actiontec off.
Turn computer off.

Connect:

* telephone-port in wall <--- 4-pin telephone wire --> DSL router

* Ethernet port on DSL-router <-- Ethernet cable --> WAN port on router

* One of the LAN ports on router <-- Ethernet cable --> network-port on your computer.

Turn DSL-router on, and wait for it to fully load, i.e., pattern of lamps becomes repeatable.

Turn Actiontec on, and wait for it to fully load, i.e., pattern of lamps becomes repeatable.

Turn computer on, and boot it.
Click Start
Click Run
Type CMD
Press Enter
Type IPCONFIG
Press Enter
Look for output like: Default Gateway....192.168.123.456
Start Internet Explorer
Type http://192.168.123.456 (or whatever numbers you saw)
Login to your router
Configure the wireless adapter inside the router
(enter an SSID, choose 'WPA' encryption, enter a password)
Disconnect the Ethernet cable from your computer
Click "View Available Wireless Networks",
and select the SSID that you provided.
Enter the password that you provided.

What is the password trying to set up my laptop for internet connection and it keeps asking for the password. I am using a actiontec GT704WG router


i believe you are referring to the network key,contact your internet service provider and have them personalized the password or try to access the router,type 192.168.1.1,username: admin password: password, once you are able to access the router,you will be able to personalized the password,but what i suggest is to contact ISP

Verizon AGT704WG modem/router conflicts w/ T-Mobile WRTU54G-TM


your Verizon AGT704WG is a gateway, meaning, it's a modem that has router functions (wireless, support for multiple pc's etc.). If you want to connect your T-Mobile wireless router, it would cause certain conflicts with your Verizon 704WG because it is also a wireless router. That's why you can't configure it.

So, if you want to connect your T-Mobile wireless router, you would have to set up your 704WG first to BRIDGE MODE. Which means you would have to disable its routing functions so that only the T-Mobile will function as your router and will not cause any conflict.

If you want to set your GT704WG to bridge mode, follow these steps.

1. Hardwire (connected using ethernet cable) your compuer to your 704WG.
2. On your Internet Explorer or Firefox, type in 192.168.1.1 (default address for your GT704WG). You will then see a verizon page which is the configuration page of your gateway (for newer modems, the background is usually red and black).
3. When prompted, enter username and password. default username is ADMIN, password is PASSWORD or if you've called Verizon tech support, password would be ADMIN (lower case).
4. Click on the MY NETWORK icon from the top bar.
5. Click NETWORK CONNECTIONS from the left navigation box.
6. Click BROADBAND CONNECTIONS (DSL)
7. Under the VC’s section, click the EDIT icon.
8. Select BRIDGE on the PROTOCOL drop down box.
9. Select ROUTED BRIDGE in the BRIDGE MODE field.
10. Click on APPLY and then click on YES to confirm reset.

You would notice that the wireless light on your gt704WG will be off. That's ok because that would indicate that your modem is in bridge mode.

Powercycle (turn off modem for 30 secs and turn it back on) your Actiontec.

That should do it. Good luck.

Power Light Is Red, Internet Light Is Green, Other Lights Off


Check cable connections.

Try unplugging router from power for five minutes.

If that does not work call Internet Service provider to check if there is a problem with their server.

Need wireless code


if you mean username and password to setup the connection with security etc you will need to go to your routers page and login with a username and password.

Actiontec GT701WG Router supplied by verizon with no instructions, any ideas


Here's a link to the Actiontec support site : http://www.actiontec.com/support/category.php?fid=6
I believe the model that Verizon deployed is not the 701WG, but the 704WG... the way you can tell the difference is either by the number of Ethernet ports (1 port = 701WG, 4 ports = 704WG), or by looking at the label on the bottom of the device.

If you're looking for an upgrade, you should check out http://www.bestbuy.com/site/olspage.jsp?skuId=8661655&st=actiontec&lp=10&type=product&cp=1&id=1198888971179
