The ethernet light on my modem turned off despite the fact that it is connected by wire (tried numerous cables as well) and that the internet service is working. The internet will not connect, and the...


Seems like your computer ethernet adapter (network card) is not working correctly/not installed or mis-configured. Open Network Connection and look for Local Area Connection:
* Does it state Disable underneath it? -> Right-click on it and choose Enable.

* Doesn't exist -> Open Device Manager and look for Network Adapters. Is it there? Do you see any yellow question mark or exclamation mark? If so, reinstall the network card driver! If you don't see any of this then the network card is either not connected firmly to the motherboard or it's defective. Connect it firmly (after shutting off the computer and disconnecting the power cord!) or replace it with another network card!

* Exists and enabled -> Right-click on it and choose Properties. Click Configure, go to Advanced. On Media Type, make sure it's set to Hardware Default or AutoSelect.

Good luck!
Cheers,
Pelu.

I bet you are using the phone modem that canme in your machine. You need to connect the Network card ( Ethernet Card) and make sure the drivers are working. Find it is System, Hardware, device manager, look for ethernet.

It only fits one way and in a maked plug on the DSL modem and into the network card in the computer. Everything there after should go automatically.

Verizon AGT704WG modem/router conflicts w/ T-Mobile WRTU54G-TM


your Verizon AGT704WG is a gateway, meaning, it's a modem that has router functions (wireless, support for multiple pc's etc.). If you want to connect your T-Mobile wireless router, it would cause certain conflicts with your Verizon 704WG because it is also a wireless router. That's why you can't configure it.

So, if you want to connect your T-Mobile wireless router, you would have to set up your 704WG first to BRIDGE MODE. Which means you would have to disable its routing functions so that only the T-Mobile will function as your router and will not cause any conflict.

If you want to set your GT704WG to bridge mode, follow these steps.

1. Hardwire (connected using ethernet cable) your compuer to your 704WG.
2. On your Internet Explorer or Firefox, type in 192.168.1.1 (default address for your GT704WG). You will then see a verizon page which is the configuration page of your gateway (for newer modems, the background is usually red and black).
3. When prompted, enter username and password. default username is ADMIN, password is PASSWORD or if you've called Verizon tech support, password would be ADMIN (lower case).
4. Click on the MY NETWORK icon from the top bar.
5. Click NETWORK CONNECTIONS from the left navigation box.
6. Click BROADBAND CONNECTIONS (DSL)
7. Under the VC’s section, click the EDIT icon.
8. Select BRIDGE on the PROTOCOL drop down box.
9. Select ROUTED BRIDGE in the BRIDGE MODE field.
10. Click on APPLY and then click on YES to confirm reset.

You would notice that the wireless light on your gt704WG will be off. That's ok because that would indicate that your modem is in bridge mode.

Powercycle (turn off modem for 30 secs and turn it back on) your Actiontec.

That should do it. Good luck.

What type of modem do I need?


bridge modem The 2100 modem is a bridge modem only, it doesn't do either NAT or PPPoE. Don't worry what that means, just that it's good news. It is already a dumb plain pass-through, so you won't have to dumb it down so that it won't conflict with the router's functions. I am also going to make a wild guess here that you are in a part of the Verizon network that was GTE before it was bought by Verizon, and are not using PPPoE, but rather DHCP. If you were in an area that was BellAtlantic before Verizon that means you are on PPPoE and you have had your Verizon DSL for 3 or 4 years or longer (about then they started using the 2200 modem for PPPoE customers). Configure your Windows XP PPPoE client as follows: 1) Go to Start >Control Panel >Network and Internet Connections. 2) Select Network Connections under the Pick a Control Panel icon. 3) Click Create a new connection under Network tasks. 4) Enter your area code in the location information (if asked), and click OK twice. 5) Click Next when the "Welcome to the new connection wizard" window displays. 6) Select Connect to the Internet and click Next. 7) Select Set up my connection manually and click Next. 8) Select Connect using a broadband connection that requires a user name and password and click Next. 9) Type "DSL Modem? ( you can use your ISP Name here) for the ISP name, and click Next. 10) Enter your BellSouth username followed by "@ISP NAME (if required by your ISP)" and password. Confirm your password, and click Next. 11) Click Add shortcut to this connection to my desktop and the DSL Modem icon will be added to your desktop. Click Finish. 12) Click the DSL Modem icon to begin surfing. -- Best of luck

The only way to replace the network card is to replace the logic board in this unit, however if you are running 10.5, you can purchase an external USB to ethernet adapter at a local Apple retailer and you can hook the computer to the network through that adapter
