Invalid server name on nokia e72 wen i try use wifi


Hello Rick,

The invalid server error message you only receive when the phone is not able to connect with your WiFi router or WiFi Hotspot. Please check for your WiFi router or WiFi Hotspot access points settings. Also check for the password your using for secure WiFi connection.

Hello. I bought this modem with wi fi ,dsl router. How to set it to use this modem as a router.I want to connect my pc with lan cord & use wifi connection with my laptop and phones.


Turn DSL-router off.
Turn Actiontec off.
Turn computer off.

Connect:

* telephone-port in wall <--- 4-pin telephone wire --> DSL router

* Ethernet port on DSL-router <-- Ethernet cable --> WAN port on router

* One of the LAN ports on router <-- Ethernet cable --> network-port on your computer.

Turn DSL-router on, and wait for it to fully load, i.e., pattern of lamps becomes repeatable.

Turn Actiontec on, and wait for it to fully load, i.e., pattern of lamps becomes repeatable.

Turn computer on, and boot it.
Click Start
Click Run
Type CMD
Press Enter
Type IPCONFIG
Press Enter
Look for output like: Default Gateway....192.168.123.456
Start Internet Explorer
Type http://192.168.123.456 (or whatever numbers you saw)
Login to your router
Configure the wireless adapter inside the router
(enter an SSID, choose 'WPA' encryption, enter a password)
Disconnect the Ethernet cable from your computer
Click "View Available Wireless Networks",
and select the SSID that you provided.
Enter the password that you provided.

Hi I want to know on how to setup the verizon Modem/Router I already have a Westell 6100G and i want to upgrade to the new one called Verizon Wireless modem/router model:GT704WG.


Are you on Consumer Verizon DSL? Fair warning if you are using Business Static- the Actiontec is a poor choice due to issues working on a static IP circuit. - I'd use a 6110 and a third party router! However, by default, the only thing you would need to do to setup the modem is go through the activation page when you plug the modem in. If you require an user name and password, it would set that up. Bar any problems, you can contact Verizon technical support since the Actiontec Gateway is fully supported.

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.

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.

Constant intermittent loss of connectivity, even with new gt704wg router


Hi,
It might be that you have a voltage drop. I noticed that this modem is very sensitive to voltage 'dips' and it will 'reset' itself if even the slightest dip in power hits it.
I have a A/C that sucks power when it cycles and every time it does I lose the internet connection. So I set up a 12 volt battery with an DC to AC inverter and run the modem off of battery power.

That might be the problem your having.
