Question about Actiontec (GT701WG) Wireless Router
i have wireless everything with my macs, but for the life of me i cannot figure out how to make a LAN connection with my dad's dell laptop. i have it connected via firewire into the Actiontec® GT701 i do not have the installation disk because Qwest never gave me one (1) & (2) i have my isp addresses & whatnot from my macs, but i cannot make a LAN connection.... my dad lives in the dark ages and still has dial-up...
I'm confused because you say your trying to make a lan connection on the dell laptop but your connecting it via firewire into a DSL modem. doing this method would be a WAN connection and not a LAN connection. To make a lan connection you need to connect the laptop via network cable (or wireless connection) to a router that is connected to your actiontek dsl modem.
I can help you connect the laptop to the internet but 1st i need to know if your trying to connect it to a router or did you want to do a wan connection from the dsl modem.
