When power switch is turned on the Power light is rapidly flashing & the 4 Ethernet lights are flashing. The box is Actiontec GT704wg


I do not have a solution to the problem. However, I am having the same problem. This morning the Actiontec GT704WG power and ethernet lights were rapidly flashing. The modem was non-functional. I could not even connect to the modem through the browser to see if I could find a problem.

The problem lasted a couple of hours. Then all of a sudden the modem started working again. I won't be able to tell if the problem recurs until I restart the modem. And if the problem does occur again, I won't be able to connect to the internet.

I have just set up wireless internet and am having trouble connecting my GT704WG, every time I connect it to the modem I cannot get online? How do I properly set this up?


Place your modem in bridged mode First and then try connecting the Router.
Ensure that all the settings for the wireless are entered correct.
Check the SSID and Security Mode and configure properly

I can't login with my MAC.. is there something I must do different with the password? I can login with my Ipod and other P.C.s are able to login.. Just my mac can't... PLese advise


Hi!

If you are connecting wirelessly, make sure the built-in airport on your mac is enabled. Then proceed with the wireless settings. Please check if the wireless settings on your airport matches the wireless settings of your router like the SSID and wireless encryption. If your encryption is WEP, you need to put a "$" sign(without the qoute) before the WEP key like $1234567890. You don't need to put the $ sign if your wireless encryption is WPA. You might as well try to connect your mac wired to the router and verify if it is online. Verify that your mac doesn't use static IP address on the airport's tcp/ip, it should be on Automatic or DHCP.

Arris Modem won't work with Airport Express


Not sure how helpful this will be, as I'm running a different piece of gear, plus it requires both troubleshooting + ISP assistance.  I had a similar problem with my AirPort Extreme: AirPort Extreme saw the Arris, iBook saw the AirPort Extreme, but no internet connectivity.
  1. In my case, I needed to set the AirPort to DHCP in the AirPort Utility application.
  2. Power down the AirPort Extreme
  3. Power down the Arris. You achieve this by unplugging the Arris *and* removing the back-up battery.
  4. Wait a few moments.
  5. Insert the battery into the Arris.
  6. Plug in the Arris power supply.
  7. Wait for the Arris to go through the restart protocol; when all the lights on the front panel are solid green, the start-up is complete.
  8. Power up the AirPort Extreme; wait for the front panel light to go solid green.
As I was doing this, I had my ISP on the phone that confirmed complete connectivity of the signal path and ensured that I was online.  While the Arris was powered down, my ISP also sent a "message" to the Arris; I don't know if this was a software update or what.  I completed the AirPort set-uo through the Utility application, the AirPort restarted, and I was online.
Hope this helps.

Apple extreme bridged to apple extreme (Windows network)


Hi,
OK, do you have the latest version of Apple's Airport Utility: Version 5.4.1 (541.9) ?
If you don't, get it... it's got an excellent interface that will walk you through bridging two wireless routers together.
Once you get your hands on it, you will need to choose which airport will be the primary and which will be the secondary. Ideally, pick the one connected to the highest speed and most reliable internet access.
Connect to the secondary airport and configure it as bridge to the primary, the Airport Utility will walk you through it step by step.

Wireless router on but not working


Who is your ISP? I belive what you have is a modem router. If the interney light is not lit then it only mean that the actiontec is bridged and you need to use a dialer on your pc to connect to your ISP. If the internet light is lit, no need for a dialer just connect it straight to your pc and check your internet.

Airport has signal


The airport has a wireless signal but its not supplied by your provider. In order to use wireless at the airpport you have to pay their provider too.

Your system can receive and send to the wireless network in the airport but usually when you have connected to their wireless network, once you open a browser (IE or Firefox) it will provide you with a sign up page where they want you to pay typically $9.99 for 24 hours of use of their wireless network, which you sign up for with a credit card.

So you should be able to recieve that page but you can't access the rest of the internet unless you pay them for access.

Sorry

Connection t othe internet....


If this modem was provided with your initial setup of Verizon Internet, it's possible that is has Verizon firmware, and defaults to connections in their domain (which you are no longer authorized for, I'd assume).

That's just a guess on my part. Knowing where the GT704WG showed up, and who provided it for you might fill in a little more detail to the scenario. Good luck!
