Question about Actiontec (GT704WG) Router
I logged on to the Actiontec modem/router with 192.168.1.1 so I am assuming the Gateway is the same. My DVR has a static IP of 192.168.1.200 and a streaming port of 8000. When I connect my laptop to the LAN, the Actiontec modem sees it. However, when I connect my DVR, it does not see it.
I created a port forwarding rule and now I want to assign that rule to the DVR. However, Actiontec (apparently) only allows me to assign the rule to the recognized devices shown in a pull down. Am I able to create a device with a static IP Address or how do I get Actiontec to recognize my DVR?
The DHCP range used to be from 192.168.1.64 thru 192.168.1.254, so I changed the end range to .100 but the DVR still didn't show up.
I have another Actiontec modem that allows me to create my own devices with an IP Address.
Since my laptop appears and disappears (Actiontec recognized devices) when I connect it to the LAN, I did not reboot the DVR or modem.
I think the screen you may be looking at is the Application layer forwarding screen, the drop down box being populated by DHCP clients, that's why it isn't seeing the DVR. The DMZ Hosting screen doesn't have a drop down box, it only requires an IP address to be entered.
Hope this helps!

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.
but its really not that difficult.
