Question about Actiontec GT704WG Wireless Router (gs583ad3-01)

1 Answer

Is there a password that I created for my wireless router? I thought it was the "key" numbers/letters on the bottom of the unit. Does this Actiontec GT704WG work with Mac Notepads?

By default the WEP key is on the bottom of the gateway- however to login to the gateway, the user name and password are admin and password

    The default IP address for your model is 192.168.1.1
    And yes, the Actiontec works with Macs- the interface is web-based, so technically you can use it on any OS platform- as long as said OS supports HTML!

I tried to change from WEP to WPA but the password will not go through. It makes it an unsecure line for wireless. What am I doing wrong?


The Short Answer:
Your password might not meet criteria. It also depends on whether you use a custom encryption key. If so, then you either need to create a 10-digit or 26-digit hexadecimal number (numbers 0-9 & letters a-f) depending on whether you use 64 or 128-bit encryption.

The Long Answer:
A WPA password must be between 8-63 characters long, and must only contain ASCII printable characters.
The 2Wire User Guide for the 2700 states the following:
"You can customize the following wireless settings in the Wireless Security panel.
1. From the Authentication pull-down menu, select an authentication setting: WEP-Open, WEP-Shared, or WPA-PSK.
Note: WPA-PSK authentication is supported only on HG model gateways.
Open authentication allows users to configure their wireless adapter as either Open or Shared; in either case an encryption key is required. Shared authentication allows users to configure their wireless adapter for Shared authentication, which requires an encryption key. WPA-PSK requires that users configure their wireless adapter using TKIP.
2. To use the encryption key that came with your gateway, click the Use default encryption key radio button.
To create a custom encryption key, click the Use custom encryption key radio button. If you select Use custom encryption key, you can define a 64-bit or 128-bit encryption key. For 64-bit encryption, enter a 10-digit hexadecimal number. For 128-bit encryption, enter a 26-digit hexadecimal number. A hexadecimal number uses the characters 0-9, a-f, or A-F.
3. Click SAVE"

Web key wireless internet service


I think you meant WEP key. this is a wireless encryption security key. and it is normally required when you try to connect to a secured network. Your administrator should be able to provide you with this. because it varies. i.e you can set it to whatever you want if you have access to the wireless router. in your case Belkin 54g Wireless DSL/Cable Router
so please if you have access to it, log in to the router and check from wireless security settings.

My Linksys will not connect to my WII


Well the first thing is that you have WRT160N router. This router has issues with the firmware. So first you will need to upgrade the firmware of the router. Download the firmware of the router from the manufacturer's web site. Connect your computer to the router. Open the router page. Click on Administration tab. Just below administration you will find firmware upgrade subtab. If you click on it, you will find the browse option. Browse the file that you have downloaded from the web site. and Click upgrade.
For WII, you will also need to change the MTU to 1365 and open some port numbers on the router.

I have forgotten my wireless password


To reset your router, use the following steps:
Press the reset button for 30 seconds. The settings should now be returned to the factory default settings, meaning any changes you had made would be deleted.
Open up your Web browser and enter “192.168.1.1′ in the address bar. For the login, leave a blank ID and enter “admin” as the password. The router has now been reset. Follow the steps in Securing Linksys WRT54G Wireless-G Router to secure your router


To secure your Linksys WRT54G wireless router, follow these steps:
Open your Internet browser and enter the following in the address bar: http://192.168.1.1. Enter the user ID and password for your router. If you haven’t changed it, the default password is “admin”. We will change it later if you haven’t already changed it. You should now see the “Basic Setup” Web page display in your browser. Scroll down the page until you see “Maximum Number of DHCP Users”. This option will assign a specific number of IP address to computers. If more than this number of computers tries to connect to your router, they will not be able to.
Count the number of computers that will connect to the router, and type it into the “Maximum Number of DHCP Users textbox”. Scroll down to the bottom of the Web page and click “Save Settings”. Once the settings have been saved, click “Continue” to return to the Web page. At the top of the Web page, click the “Administration” option in the menu bar. On the “Management” Web page, you should see two password text boxes. This is where you should change your administrative password. Type in a new secure password into both boxes. If you need help creating a secure password, please read Creating Secure Passwords. Once you have changed your password, click “Save Settings” at the bottom of the Web page. You may be prompted to login again, if you are then enter you new password in the password field. Navigate back to the “Management” Web page by clicking the “Administrative” option in the menu. We will now encrypt your connection to your router setup from your computer. To do this click the “HTTPS” checkbox next to the “Access Server” option. Once again, click the “Save Settings” button at the bottom of the Web page. You won’t get the settings saved page again because the URL in the address bar is not longer correct. Since you have changed your connection to HTTPS, it you need to specify that in the address when you connect to the router setup.
In your browser, change the address to: https://192.168.1.1. If you get a security error, ignore the error and continue to the Web page.
Login with your password and then click the “Wireless” menu option. Beside the “Wireless Network Name (SSID)” option, type in a name for you network connection. Click the “Save Settings” button and the “Continue” button to return to the “Basic Wireless Settings” page. Click the “Wireless Security” sub-menu option at the top of the page. This is where we will provide the most important security setting. Next to “Security Mode”, select “WPA – Personal” from the drop-down list. If you have trouble connecting to your wireless connection, you can try selecting “WEP”, but your connection will be much less secure. For more information about WEP and WPA please read Wireless Security: WEP and WPA. Next to “WPA Algorithms”, select “AES”. Once again if you have trouble connecting to your wireless router, select “TKIP”. Now you must get very creative. Specify a long “WPA Shared Key” with a mix of upper and lower case letters, numbers and punctuation. Once again, please read Creating Secure Passwords for tips on how to do this. In this case the longer the better. Make sure you write down this key somewhere, either on a piece of paper or in a text document on your computer. You will need this information when you connect to your wireless network.
Click the “Save Settings” button at the bottom of the Web page, and then the “Continue” button. Now you are all done securing your wireless router and network. All you need to do is connect to your network, and enter your “WPA Shared Key” exactly as you specified it.

Need to change password from previously changed password


To secure the wireless network or to change any settings on the router you will need to access the router set up interface.
Open the set up interface of the router . Make sure that your computer will be connected to the router with the Ethernet cable.

Once you open the set up page of the router , you will find the place to change the wireless settings of the router. In case of Linksys wireless router , you will see the Wireless Tab at the top.

SSID : It is the name of the wireless network. This name will be shown on your wireless computer or the wireless device so that you can identify your own wireless network. All the routers come with their factory default settings. For example , the Linksys router will come with the Linksys network name.
It will be better to change the wireless network name.

Change the security mode to WEP. This security type is supported by all the operating system. When change the security mode to WEP, you will find the Network key box to type the network key. Do not type anything in the Passphrase box. Type your network key in the Key 1 Box. If you set the encryption to 65 bits, your network key will be 10 digit hexadecimal number. that means you can use the combination of 0,1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9 and letters a,b,c,d,e,f only. remember it should be exactly 10.
If you set the Encryption to 128 bit, your network key will be the combination of 26 digits. You will need to remember the network key.

WPA

This is one of the most secured type of encryption.
Open the set up interface of the router. Change the wireless security mode to WPA personal. You will find the passphrase box. in this box you can type any password for your wireless network. The password should be the combination of number and letters and it should be 8 or more than 8 characters.
This security type is supported by WINDOWS XP SP2 and above Operating system.

WPA2
This is one of the highly secured type of encryption.
Open the set up interface of the router. Change the wireless security mode to WPA personal. You will find the passphrase box.In this box you can type any password for your wireless network. The password should be the combination of number and letters and it should be 8 or more than 8 characters. Keep the Algorithm to TKIP.

Need to secure my wireless router. do not know how?


Go to your wireless router software and click on the security setting section. Create a WEP key by providing a secret code or password that restricts access to the network. (to get access type http://192.168.0.1) Step2Be sure to choose a key with a combination of letters, numbers and symbols. These types of codes are the most difficult to break. Step3Click on the wireless connections options on your wireless router software. Find your router from the list of found servers and click on security settings. Step4Add the WEP key that you used on the main router settings to the wireless device. A lock symbol should now appear next to the name of your wireless router from the list of available routers. Step5Access the Internet via your router using only devices that have the WEP installed in their wireless settings. Without it, they will not be able to complete the connections to the network. This information must be added to all wireless devices that you plan to access via the router.
