Question about Actiontec (5GE583000-01) Router

1 Answer

Can't log in

I have verizon fios and a MI424WR-D actiontec router.
when I go to the log in page for the router, I can't type in the password. It repeats the letters as I put them in, even reduce settings on my keyboard. I can't paste the password in. Only way to get in is to reset and put in new password. But as soon as I try to log in again same result.

    When pressing the keyboard once, three asterisks display. Tried pasting password, but does not work. Telnet does not work - connection refused.

    Tried powering off and back on. Tried using reset button - cannot resolve this issue.

    same problem here.
    I type in the password but too many characters show up. and not they are not asterisks to hide the password from snoopers. it simply adds extra characters. copy paste does not work. it omits the last letter. when i try to press the last letter, three characters appear. and when i try to paste the last character, three characters appear. One of the craziest bugs ive seen.

Just ignore the * and type in the password blind.
the random * showing are to confuse the guy watching behind you, not you.

Forgot my verizon actiontec router password


wifi password or the password for logging into the router settings? If you do a factory reset on the router it will put all settings back to default settings, the default password can normally be found on a sticker on the side or bottom of router. it will say "WEP" or "WPA2 key". you factory reset the router by holding down a red button (inside of a hole) on the back of the router for 12+ seconds while its still powered on.

My DHCP is not assigning a dynamic address to one of my seven wired devices. I've had to switch over to a stati


On the second router just plug a port cable in from your main routers port into the wan port and then be sure to change the second routers gateway and IP address to a different number. Say that your main router IP is 198.18.1.1 and for your second router IP you could use 10.10.10.1 or what ever combo you want and then you should be able to use both routers together. Is this what you are trying to do?
Linksys routers as well as all routers with DHCP enabled should be able to handle up to 255 separate IP address's for a LAN network. Is the firmware of the Linksys the latest? If not, down load the latest firmware and flash the router to update it. Or, check out third party firmwares like Tomato to flash that tired Linksys and turn it into a real router.

Default admin password


  1. Enter your user name. If you didn't change the user name during installation, enter admin in theUser Name field. [Show Me]


  2. Enter the password you entered during installation and click OK. Additional characters will appear to be inserted as you enter your password. This is designed to hide the number of characters in your password.

    • Note: If you didn't change the default password when you set up your router, it may have been changed to your router's serial number to provide greater security. You can find your router's serial number on a label affixed to the bottom or back of your router.
    • Note: If you can't remember your user name or password, you must reset your Verizon MI424WR router to the default settings and reconfigure your home network.

Hi I want to know on how to setup the verizon Modem/Router I already have a Westell 6100G and i want to upgrade to the new one called Verizon Wireless modem/router model:GT704WG.


Are you on Consumer Verizon DSL? Fair warning if you are using Business Static- the Actiontec is a poor choice due to issues working on a static IP circuit. - I'd use a 6110 and a third party router! However, by default, the only thing you would need to do to setup the modem is go through the activation page when you plug the modem in. If you require an user name and password, it would set that up. Bar any problems, you can contact Verizon technical support since the Actiontec Gateway is fully supported.

Nonexistant customer service by Actiontec


After my second call to Actiontec ended with the help desh hanging up on me, Actiontec did respond to an emailed plea for help and prompty provided a complex script which they labeled confidential to address this problem. The bottom line seems to be Verizon either installed hardware that is incompatable with an Exchange server or they did not configure the insallation correctly. In so many words, Actiontec feels it is a Verizon problem. I wish me luck in getting to the right place to deal with that, even though I am a Verizon stockholder.

Problem connecting to Netgear WNR854T Gigabit edition


The WNR854T will downspeed to 10Mbps on its ethernet ports so speed should not be a problem.
Suggest you try crossover ethernet cable between router and dsl modem.

Dropping wireless connection


The problem may not be with your router. I had a situation a year ago with the modem dropping the signal everyday. I spent hours on the phone with verizon tech support to no avail. They sent someone out to my home and he put a filter on the main line coming into the house which didn't resolve the issue. Then verizon insisted the modem was bad so they sent me an actiontec. Turns out that the problem had nothing to do with me. They try to squeeze as much bandwith at their switching stations as they can. They switched me over to another hub and viola no more problem.
