Question about Actiontec GT704WG Wireless Router (gs583ad3-01)
This is a Verizon Fios Router. In my home I have tried to use the wireless on this router but it would always drop to 24 speed even though the signal was full bars. When this happens everything stops. No email..no webpages. So I tried turning off the wireless and connecting a Linksys 54G router and using the router on it. I still use the DHCP on the Actiontech though. Again it connects at 54/full bars but after a while it will degrade to 24 and then nothing happens again. I have tried two different routers with the same results. This seems to indicate that the problem is either with the Actiontech or my Fios. I have the same results on four different laptops. All different models, different wireless devices. Again, seems to point at the Router or Verizon. Verizon is no help. Distance from the router makes no difference. I can be 5 feet away with no obstructions and get the same problem. Currently my solution is that I have two Linksys Routers connected to the ports on the Actiontech. They are located about 15 apart up on top of bookshelfs neare the geographical center of my home on the first floor. When the speed drops on one, I connect to the other, and badda bing I am back up to 54...for a while. All laptos are running XP SP2 and use the windows wireless configurator.
I have been trying to figure this one out for about 6 moths so any help you can offere would be appreciated.
I have had similar problems with my FIOS/Actiontec wireless network.
I was instructed to upgrade the firmware on the router, which you can do by logging into the device, going to the advanced tab,and following hte instruction.
This helped some.
But lately the problem is back.
