Question about Actiontec GT704WG Wireless Router (gs583ad3-01)

1 Answer

Connection t othe internet....

Oh please say you can help this low tech individual to connect to Earthlink via the GT704WG. I was with Verizon and had no problems until I changed companies. I have changed some settings. TheVCI an VPI are set at 0 and 35 everything that I know to do I have done. My latest error message is The network card can not be read....but what made it readable before? All of my modem lights are solid green except the internet light, it's solid red.

If this modem was provided with your initial setup of Verizon Internet, it's possible that is has Verizon firmware, and defaults to connections in their domain (which you are no longer authorized for, I'd assume).

That's just a guess on my part. Knowing where the GT704WG showed up, and who provided it for you might fill in a little more detail to the scenario. Good luck!

Actiontec GT704WGB from Verizon is working through Earthlink yet Verizon still thinks it is providing service and want to set up my "account"


Sounds like you have Verizon software on your computer. The router has nothing to do with that. Go into control panel > add remove programs and remove the Verizon software.

Am I getting high speed thru my actiontec gt704wg router


It depends on your DSL connection- technically anything above 56k is "high-speed internet"- if you are concerned about the speeds you are getting, contact Verizon tech support for further assistance- you could have an issue with your connection, and they would be the ones able to setup for a technician to come out/ have the maintenance office repair the connection

Connect your Earthlink Modem's RJ45 connector to your router's RJ45 WAN connector. The router should then provide wireless internet to other computers via their wireless cards.

Can't stay connected to the internet with my laptop, but dekstop(which is directly connected to the router) has internet


I'd try calling verizon on the issue first and have them test your line. If that comes back clean, then you need to look at any extra equipment you may have at your house (alarm systems, etc.) that could throw disruption on your line. Also make sure you have filters on your phones!

Hope this helps!

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.

Actiontec gt704wg hates vista


Vista is almost as bad as Verizon services. I have had a ton of problems. I had a Westell router that kept going out and then I put my Actiontec on. It was a lot faster but still drops out all the time. When I log in to the router it says I have both dsl and internet connection. and then my pc shows I have the locals only. Where I live has old wiring and Verizon won't fix there end of it.
