Question about Computers & Internet

How do I get my EnGenius ESR-9752 router to work with my Actiontec GT701 modem? I have a desk top computer using XP. I just bought a lap top with wireless capabilites. I want to run this system through the router. My desktop computer works fine throgh the modem, but when I add the router, I can't get to the internet. I think the two devices can't find a common address.

Trying to change from actiontec gt701 to actiontec gt701-wg. after new modem is hooked up, internet light stays red. switched by to old modem and all is fine. anyone know why internet light stayed red?


The reason why your internet light is red for the actiontec gt701-wg is because it is not yet configure. You need to access the gui of this router. enter the username and password for your internet connection. You can contact your ISP provider so they can walk you through for the steps on how to configure your new router.

The old router has green light because it was already configured by your ISP provider.

I have a dsl modem and an actiontec gt701-wg gateway


Yes this is a normal method to setup a wireless network.
To set-up and secure the wireless router from unauthorized access, follow these steps :-
1. Connect the wireless router to your computer with a LAN cable.
2. Start your browser and enter the router's configuration URL IP address.
3. Enter the router setup, login and password
4. Change the admin password
5. Go to the wireless settings and change the default SSID and turn off SSID broadcast.
6. Setup encryption key the strongest is WPA2 (if not then WPA).
7. For further security measures - turn on MAC address filtering and enter the MAC address of the wireless cards on the computer/s you want to connect to this wireless router.
8. Record the settings you have made and keep it in a safe place and Save the settings.
9. Configure the wireless cards on the computer/s with the SSID and encryption settings of the router.

Did you Unplug the Modem from Your Electrical Outlet, AND Unplug the Telephone Line coming in too, for 5 minutes?? Give "it" a chance to Completely Re-set/Reboot..I have a GT701 DSL Modem, that's what I did, and it worked fine. "IF" that doesn't work I would go to "Support" at either Action-Tech or Your DSL/IP Provider. Hope this Helps you.

I have had an Actiontec (GT701) Modem for several years. It has worked fine until a problem that it developed about a month ago. The modem is attached to our desk top PC. I also have a mac lap top. ...


It sounds like, somehow, an antivirus or firewall app is blocking access to those sites. I'd check there, first. Then, if no help, you may have to simply uninstall and reinstall the modem. If you have your manual, reset the modem and follow the steps to install it as if you just bought it. If the modem has a battery, remove it to completely re-set the unit. http://support.actiontec.com/doc_files/GT701R_QW05.5_User_Manual_3.60.3.0.7.6.pdf

Want to use Dlink DI-514 with Qwest modem to hardwire 2 computers


Believe it or not, Actiontec modems from Qwest are setup as a router already (even though ports are missing from it). You should use a switch instead of another router. Otherwise you will have to configure the DI-514 to act as a switch rather than a router. This is done by assigning a new starting IP address into your DI-514. By default both routers use 192.168.0.1 as the default. You will have to plug the DI-514 seperately into a computer (to take it off the network) and assign a new starting IP address for the DI-514 such as 10.150.1.1 for example. Then you will be able to get it work. I would strongly recommend using a switch instead and turn the wireless on the modem itself (this is why the modem is the router). It will save you some headaches if the power goes out.

Actiontec GT701-WG won't operate wirelessly


In looking on the internet the unit is a DSL gateway. Trying to use it on cable internet is not a real good way to set up your network because I believe the router is waiting for a DSL sync before the services turn on. I would spend the money and pick up a Linksys or Netgear G router, there around $50.
