Question about Actiontec (GT701) Modem
I can't seem to find my intallation disk and the modem will not hook to the internet.
My power light is on but the internet light flashes green.
The error 680 means There is no dial tone. The modem is not detecting a dial tone There are many possible causes of a No Dial Tone Error. 1.Check cable is correctly inserted into back of modem and phone socket 2.Check properties of connection, make sure correct modem is being used 3.Disable "wait for dialtone before dialing" in My Computer > Dial Up Networking > Properties of Connectoid > Configure > Connection > remove checkmark under call preferences 4.Try removing fax machines or other devices connected to the line 5.Make sure no one is using the telephone when trying to connect

Sounds like a problem with your cable connection. Check your coaxial cable, and the splitter from where the cable enters your home. The tech will use a signal meter to measure the quality of your cable, and then replace the wiring if necessary.
