Question about Actiontec GT704WG Wireless Router (gs583ad3-01)
I bought a ipod touch this week. When i log onto the internet function the ipod does not display the web site home page although the ipod indicates that it is picking up the wireless signal being transmitted by the router. I know the problem has to be at my home becausse the ipod works properly at the store and it was working at two different friends home. Both of these persons have linksys router. I acquired this router when I subscribe to my phone company's DSL service. My phone company is verizon. They provided me with the router and i have been unable to reach anyone in their tech dept. When I check the settings on the ipod it shows the following ip address and subnet mask #
IP: 169.254.215. 210
I have only one computer connected in my house. It is a HP laptop an dv6244.
One thing that i think i need to know is, if there is some type of internal password to change these setting???
I came upon this web site after
If some one has some possible solutions i would be very thankyou.
my email is firstname.lastname@example.org
The IP address that the iPod is showing is a "self-assigned" address meaning that it has looked around for something to give it an IP (i.e. a DHCP server) but not found anything. There could be lots of reasons for this. First, on your wireless router, is it set to broadcast its SSID? If not, the iPod can't see it. Second, is the router set to act as a DHCP server so that computers etc can be assigned an IP address and the network info needed? Third, does your router have a setting to only allow connections from specific devices, normally identified by their MAC address? If so, you'll have to check the MAC address of your iPod and add that into the list. Finally, do you have security settings such as WEP or WPA encryption on the router that you need to enter the details of into your iPod?
