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.


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

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

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
Press Enter
Look for output like: Default Gateway....
Start Internet Explorer
Type (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.

I have the actiontec gt704wg dsl modem that I got from Qwest. The last few months I often lose my internet connection. The only way I get it back is by turning the modem off for a few seconds and then...

It sounds like a firmware issue or problem. Have you tried updating the firmware of the router? If not, download the latest firmware from actiontec website and install it to your router. Note: After successfully updating the firmware, you need to hard reset the router. Press the reset button at the back of the router for 30 second then unplug the power for 30 seconds as well then plug it back n.

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.

Verizon GT704WG DSL Modem wants me to install software

If my memory serves me, I didn't install the software for my Actiontec modem/router combo. I call Verizon and told them I refused to install the software and they helped step me through getting rid of this garbage. You should never have to install software to get a modem or router to work as any software the comes with it, is simply used to provide easier configuration.

Since I couldn't find anything about bypassing this software, I would suggest contacting Verizon directly. Their technical support should be able to assist you.

I have AT&T DSL and want to install an Actiontec 54 mbps wireless

If the modem was pre-programmed for another service, such as Verizon, you will have to plug the modem into a wall and hold in the reset button on the back of the modem until it resets. Then load the AT&T software IF they provided you with such - the walkthrough is actually pretty good. If AT&T did not provide you the Actiontec or the software, you will have to go to Actiontec's website and download the Actiontec Installation Buddy and also follow the directions for downloading the non-proprietary version of the firmware (WARNING: do not update the player's firmware if ATT &T provided you with the Actiontec; the non-proprietary firmware will make the modem useless toward whichever service provided you with the Actiontec). Take note of the numbers taped on a sticker underneath your Actiontec - MAC Address, etc. You may need this information to complete the installation. Also, download the Actiontec manual - it will take you through the process, but it is not going to be easy to follow - know in advance that it is going to take time.

As you go through the Actiontec Installation Buddy process, it will prompt you to do a modem test - make sure the Actiontec is connected to the phone line and to your computer (via an Ethernet cable). It will do a modem test. If the modem test fails the first time, turn the Actiontec OFF, wait 10 seconds, and turn it on again. Try the modem test again - should work.

If AT&T did NOT provide you with the Actiontec, your task is going to be a bit tricky. If AT&T DID provide you with the Actiontec, it might be better to call their technical support for a walkthrough.

Good luck!

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.
