Which # on the bottom of my actiontec is the WEP #?

The WEP encryption key is setup by the user, it is not a fixed key.
Theencryption key secures your data from unauthorized access. The router's password is a Passphrase or the WEP or WPA orWPA2 encryption key. The Passphrase generates the WEP or WPA or WPA2 encryptionkey and this is in the router's wireless settings. To connect to your wireless router, configure the router'swireless settings ie SSID, plus the WPAor WPA2 encryption key and then configure wireless cards in the laptops and orcomputers with these router's wireless settings. Then the laptops and desktopcomputers can communicate with your wireless router.

I am trying to install my actiontec gt704wg in windows t 64 bit

You should not have to install any drivers for this equipment to work. If it is wired, plug an ethernet cable from the back of your computer to the router. If it is wireless, you will have to enter the wireless key. If the GT704 is set to default settings I believe there isn't any encryption on the unit (meaning that you can connect without a key). If you still can't connect wirelessly, you'll have to plug in a cable and open your internet browser. Type in the address bar and within the wireless settings you should see the WEP/WPA key.

I have Actiontec gt704wg wireless and am trying to set up my nook. It asks for a password and i dont know it

In order to get the wifi WEP key for your network, turn over the bottom of the modem- the default WEP key is on a sticker-
Bar that, on your pc open up a web browser, type in in the address bar- by default the user name and password are admin and password- go to the wireless tab, and basic security settings- the WEP key would be listed there

How do i find security key so I can use laptop on my actiontec network.

The security key is the WEP or WPA or WPA2 encryption key that is configured in the router's wireless settings. You need to connect a LAN cable from your computer to your Actiontec, open a browser and enter the router's configuration URL then login to the router then go to the wireless settings for this info or to change the wireless settings.

To secure your wireless network from unauthorized access, please click on this link and follow my instructions :-

Is there a password that I created for my wireless router? I thought it was the "key" numbers/letters on the bottom of the unit. Does this Actiontec GT704WG work with Mac Notepads?

By default the WEP key is on the bottom of the gateway- however to login to the gateway, the user name and password are admin and password

Once i open my router how do i actually open the ports for xbox tcp80,udp88,exctra im using a action tec gt704wg wireless router
Your manual above it also shows you how to open ports in there.
Also if you go to, they will show you how to do it too. Go to the link below.

Actiontec Gateways and Routers are compatible with the Xbox. However, it may be necessary to forward the ports used by the Xbox, in the Actiontec Gateway or Router. Without Port Forwarding, the Xbox Connection Test may report a "NAT" rating of "STRICT" or "MODERATE", rather than "OPEN".
It is also explained below...

I upgraded the hard drive ram and OS on a 3 year old macbook core 2 duo. Now it won't connect to my wireless network. It will connect to wireless network at the local coffee shop. I have tried rebooting...

All you need to correct is entering in the WEP key for the wireless network- you will connect, but will be unable to browse wirelessly otherwise. The WEP key is found on the bottom of the actiontec- unless you changed it to something else- at which point you would need to log into the modem to find out your WEP key.( on a working computer in internet explorer/safari/firefox, un/pw admin, password or admin, admin; wireless settings)

Use the WEP encryption in the wireless settings, any computer that wants to connect to your network will have to know that WEP key, without entering it they will see secured network and not be able to access it.
