Depending on which type of modem it is the reset button is normally recessed back into the actual modem. They are normally only able to be pushed by a pen tip or something smaller. Look for a small hole around the back end of the router and put a pen tip in it and hold it in for a bout 10 secs that should reset it. Don't know why you would want to reset it unless your having some major problems.

Reset button was hit but cannot log in with admin and motorola locked out and cannot get lap top to connect

It seems I didn't push the button long enough or I pushed it and then pulled the power cable. That got me into some weird condition where internet would work but was not able to login to the router.

The right way:
- Press and hold the reset button until the devices lights start to shutoff
- Wait
- Login with the defaults: admin/Motorola

I cant acess my actiontec gt724wgr gateway login and the ip adess is here any other way i can log in?

No there isn`t. Try to reset the router with the little hidden 'Reset' button on the back(just push it once and hold it that way until the indicator lights change) and try again. If it`s still not working, you`ll have to change your computers IP address to 192.168.0.X (X = 2-255).Control Panel > Network and Sharing > Change adapter settings(on the upper left side), right click on the adapter and select properties. Highlight the Internet Protocol version 4 and click Properties. After your done setting it up change the settings back to 'Automatic'.
Good luck

Difficult to log

Top three suspects

1. Reset your settings to you internet provideer 2. Cycle the power off 30 seconds then back on for new address and see the log 3. Press and hold the reset button for 15 seconds then release to reset the system (You will lose all current configuration once you do this)

Can't get my laptop connected to internet and I forgot my username/passphrase for my riouter

Are you able to log in to the router? If you connect via ethernet cable and then find your default gateway (run "cmd" and type ipconfig then hit enter) - go the the default gateway in internet explorer (its usually something like
Then if you can log in to this then you will be able to change the security back to something you know. If you havent changed the password to get into the router then it will be the standard, you can google the router model to find this out but its usually "admin" + "admin"

If you cant do this then you will have to reset the router but beware you will need to have on hand your username and password for your broadband service (you can get this by calling them or it may also be on some paperwork they sent)

Hope this helps!

I have a gateway laptop MT6723 model I'm having problem with connecting to the router my password for one won't stay lock in keep chaning back to someting else.

It sounds like the laptop is fine and the problem is with the router. You may need to "reset" the router by pressing the very small pin hole button for a few seconds. Be Aware that any special settings you have entered in the router will be reset when you do should take it back to original settings.

If resetting it a few times does not make a difference you may have a bad router. I would try it with another computer to be sure, but strange behavior after a few resets points to a bad router.

Unable to turn on my labtop (gateway 7326GZ) computer.

The real button is under the button you see. You might be able to get the keyboard cover off. If it's not broken broken you could try to reseat it. The part unless you find a cheaper source is 149.00 (which frankly is ridiculous)

Can't access

to be honest my friend i cant tell why gateway would block ip addresses and i was trying to log in using FTP but seems there is no luck they wont give anonymous log ins

so i guess your only way is to depend on smone who can dowload the drivers for u and then send them to u

may be u can try to download them from a netcafe if possible

sorry my friend thats all i can think about for now
