NO PSN with Actiontec GT704WG Verizon


If you can access the internet it is not a problem with the router. Are you able to access the PSN site but rejected when you enter your credentials?

I have cable internet through Charter. Want to use GT704WG router


Unfortunately, this router is only able to be used with DSL. When you are using cable internet this router will be rendered useless with your new service. If you call customer service for Charter they do offer Home Networking that provides you with a wireless router for a small monthly fee or if you are looking for a lower cost one time charge you might check with them as well and see if they provide a "refurbished" wireless router or check on ebay for some good deals....

Good luck...

Can a actiontec gateway wireless DSL router be connected to a comcast cable modem?I have an old DSL wireless router (gateway), can I use this as my wireless router with comcast cable internet, or do i need...


You could do it, but it's a bit of a pain in the ***** and probably not worth the hassle.
Actiontec DSL gateway was not designed to act as a "proper" router and therefore you won't be able to make it act like one permanently (well, unless there's a hacked firmware out there somewhere ;).
Of course, since it runs linux, you can telnet into it and manually set up the ip addresses on both wireless/wired interfaces and the necessary route between them. It will then work as a wireless access point for your comcast cable modem, but any changes will be lost every time you reboot the actiontec.
I've done it in the past with similar setup but quickly got tired of having to console the actiontec to add the ips and routes every time it crashed -and eventually got a proper wireless router.
So-it can be done, just not easily.
Have fun,
Raf

Can I use 2WIRE 2701HG-B router in COX internet connection


No. A router has 2 main interface types WAN (for the internet connection side, and LAN (for the home network side) the 'LAN' side often has up to 4 ports and wireless connectivity for the home network.

The most common routers available at electronics retail use a CAT-5 connection for the WAN ports and the LAN ports. Your DSL modem/router uses a phone line input for it's WAN port, which uses a signal type that is incompatible with the cable modem output.

If COX doesn't offer a router with the cable modem package, you can go and purchase and common brand of home networking router, and attach it to the output of the cable modem.

CAN A 2WIRE DSL ROUTER WORK WITH A CABLE INTERNET CONEECTION


The 2wire dsl modem/router cannot be use with a another cable modem , since this 2wire device is also a modem/router and its made for the DSL conenction that's why it wont work with Cox cable, the best thing that you can do is to ask Cox to give a wireless modem/router like this 2wire so you can still use the wireless connection of your computer..

Hope that helps..........

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.
