SOURCE: actiontec GT701-WG won't operate wirelessly

You'll probably need to turn on the wireless inside the configuration. go to 192.168.0.1 in your browser and head to advanced. From there you'll see it :)

Yes, if the other isp is also providing dsl services, but you will have to configure the device the other isp will not help you with that.

SOURCE: trying to change from actiontec gt701 to actiontec

The reason why your internet light is red for the actiontec gt701-wg is because it is not yet configure. You need to access the gui of this router. enter the username and password for your internet connection. You can contact your ISP provider so they can walk you through for the steps on how to configure your new router.

The old router has green light because it was already configured by your ISP provider.

How do I enable multicast for chromecast with my DLink 600 - tried to log in but "page is not available". The router is wireless to my PC, ipad, android phone.


If your PC, iPad and smartphone work well with your router, the problem is with your chromecast. If can't set it up to work with the routes, I guess that it's "wireless adapter" or whatever makes it work, is defective. If it's new, you should return it to the shop where you bought it, should have warranty

Actiontec GT701-WG won't operate wirelessly


In looking on the internet the unit is a DSL gateway. Trying to use it on cable internet is not a real good way to set up your network because I believe the router is waiting for a DSL sync before the services turn on. I would spend the money and pick up a Linksys or Netgear G router, there around $50.
