Question about Computers & Internet

Actiontec I do know that, while you are chained to the Actiontec router if you want your FiOS to work, since what amounts to a modem is integrated with the router...you can turn the router into a bridge, bypassing the routing (and firewall) functions of the Actiontec, and use some other router if you are so inclined. If you elect to go that route, you can find the instructions online...or email me and I'll be happy to send them to you. Again, this is splansing@gmail.com

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.

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.

We have actiontec verizon router/modem GT704WG. We have to reboot our computer and router multiple times a day to get the internet to work. It will be working, then all of the sudden it just stops, and we...


I have had this same problem with Qwest using a new iMac and MacBook on the Actiontec modem. Qwest did two things: first we reset the modem which was fairly simple and took only about 5 minutes. However, this fix lasts only a few weeks and it comes back. I have just ordered a new modem since there seems to be a problem with the Actiontec device with the newer high speed internet.
I'd try the reset before doing anything else. 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.

Using Linksys WRT54G as router connected to ActionTec with FIOS


You must keep everything on the same subnet. Only allow the router to be DHCP and keep everything on 192.168.1.x subnet. You are going to have alot of problems talking across subnets

Dropping wireless connection


The problem may not be with your router. I had a situation a year ago with the modem dropping the signal everyday. I spent hours on the phone with verizon tech support to no avail. They sent someone out to my home and he put a filter on the main line coming into the house which didn't resolve the issue. Then verizon insisted the modem was bad so they sent me an actiontec. Turns out that the problem had nothing to do with me. They try to squeeze as much bandwith at their switching stations as they can. They switched me over to another hub and viola no more problem.

INSTALLING ACTIONTEC WIRELESS ROUTER/MODEM


you may try this and see if this help solve your problem

Step 1: Shutdown the computer.
Step 2: Unplug the router’s power cable.
Step 3: Unplug the Broadband modem’s power cable and wait for 30 seconds.
Step 4: Plug in the Broadband modem’s power cable and wait for its lights to appear stable.
Step 5: Plug in the router's power cable once the modem’s lights appear stable.
Step 6: Power on the computer on and test the Internet connection.

if this still didnot work, maybe you need to upgrade the firmware of your router

Problem with netgear wgr614 v6 daisy chain


I am assuming the Verison was setup and working before this started, if not let me know.

Do you know the address and subnet mask for the lan side of the Verison Actiontec router? assumed like address 192.168.0.1 subnet mask 255.255.255.0 This means all addresses 192.168.0.? belong to the verison router's subnet.

Assuming the Netgear router is being daisy chained using a lan port from the Verison Router to the WAN port of the Netgear, the WAN side of the Netgear router needs to be either dynamically addressed or statically addressed in the 192.168.0.? uniquely outside the DHCP range for the Verison router.

The LAN side of the Netgear Router must not be addressed the same as the LAN side of the Verison router in this configuration.

There is another potential configuration where lan ports of both routers are connected. however in that configuration there are additional considerations. Please let ne know which connection you are attempting between the two routers.

There is some additional informatin you can gather

Assuning you have windows XP for the operating system on your computers hook a computer wired if possible to the LAN side of each router and issue the following commands

Click Start then All Programs then Accessories then Command Prompt in the new window that opens type the following command and press enter

ipconfig

write down th IP Address, Subnet Mask and Default Gateway for each adapter

Then issue the following command once for each default gateway not = 0.0.0.0 where {...} is replaced in its entirety with the default gateway.

pring {default gateway address no {}}

the expected responses will be either 4 timeouts or 4 lines with elapsed times. Timeout is failure -- elapsed times means it was connected.

For each router I need to know the default gateway and the subnet mask for the successful pair. Plese reply ina comment to this problem and additional steps will be forthcomming.
