Question about Actiontec (GT704WG) Router

Actiontec GT701-WG won't operate wirelessly

I have a comcast modem that doesn't have wireless capability, so I'm trying to run a wireless connection to the comcast modem using my actiontec gt701-wg. When I hook everything up, the "wireless" light on the actiontec doesn't come on and the PC says there is no wireless network in the area. I've tried turning the equipment on in several different orders with no luck. There's no switch on the actiontec so I'm at a stand-still.

You'll probably need to turn on the wireless inside the configuration. go to 192.168.0.1 in your browser and head to advanced. From there you'll see it :)

In looking on the internet the unit is a DSL gateway. Trying to use it on cable internet is not a real good way to set up your network because I believe the router is waiting for a DSL sync before the services turn on. I would spend the money and pick up a Linksys or Netgear G router, there around $50.

First, the upgrade may have replaced the default functionality. Second the wireless signal capacity allowabel for most computers requires letting the system aware of the new setup to share signals.

Trying to change from actiontec gt701 to actiontec gt701-wg. after new modem is hooked up, internet light stays red. switched by to old modem and all is fine. anyone know why internet light stayed red?


The reason why your internet light is red for the actiontec gt701-wg is because it is not yet configure. You need to access the gui of this router. enter the username and password for your internet connection. You can contact your ISP provider so they can walk you through for the steps on how to configure your new router.

The old router has green light because it was already configured by your ISP provider.

I cant communicate with belkin wireless g router


It sounds like you don't have the units connected properly. Make sure you have a cable(wired) from your ethernet card on your pc connected to a wired port on the router. Then plug your router from its yellow port into the modem. Make sure your modem is connected to its Internet interface. Plug in your modem and wait 60 seconds for it to power up. Then power up the router.
At this point you should be able to access the router with the supplied installation CD. Run the setup assistant and it will define your wireless network. When you are through you should have internet access through the wired network. When you are finished you should be able to use the wireless network assuming you have the card installed correctly and the software for the card correctly installed.
