Re: problems with internet
The first step is to determine if it's your computer being slow on the downloads, or is it the router being slow.
The best way to rule out your computer is not the problem is to get some friend who has a laptop to connect to your internet at your house.
If their laptop gets on the internet just fine and plays videos, then the problem is in your computer. If you are not computer savy, then I'd suggest taking it to your local computer store and have them check it out. (some do the check for free)
If they have the same problem with the internet connection then it's probably the router:
The actiontec GT704WG is a router normally provided from the Internet Service Provider (ISP). Contact your ISP and tell them that you internet is slow and that you would like for them to reset your configuration on your router. They either will do it themselves, or walk you through performing the steps.

Unplug or turn off your DSL/cable modem. Locate, on the back of your Linksys router, the small button that reads Reset. While pressing the Reset button, turn on/plug in router. Hold for 30 seconds. Wait for your Power, WLAN and Internet light to turn on. (On the router) Open your web browser to see if you have an internet connection. If you still don't have an internet connection you may need to restart your computer.
This might be due to a slow internet connection. See, for smooth playback, the part of the movie your computer wants to show has to be downloaded already - it has to be "buffered". If you have a slow internet connection, the speed at which your computer can download a movie might be slower than the actual time it takes to watch what's being downloaded. That's why your movie will stop, wait until another part of it has been buffered, and then recommence.
Plesae make sure you have 2 different working condition LAN calbe with youto perform the steps mentioned below: 1. Make sure the Main Intenet calbe is connected to Router. 2. Make sure alternative LAN calbe is plugged in to LAN 1,2,3 or 4 at the back of the router and other end is plugged into your laptop. 3. Make sure you WLAN, DSL, Power, any one LAN cable pluggedin lights are blinking. 4. On your laptop keyboard, press start button and also "R" at the same time. This will give you run command box. 5. Type "cmd" and hit enter. This will open black background command prompt window. 6. Where the cursor is blinking, there type "ipconfig". This give you the IPaddress of the machine. 7. Copy or wirte down the IP address and open Internet Explorer. 8. In IE top address box of http, type the default gateway adress... Eg: 192.168.1.1 9. This will prompt for User ID and password. 10. Enter User ID as "admin" and password as " admin" or "password" 11. That will take you to router configuration page. Sellect Wireless and then wireless security. 12.

That means that the setup of your internet connection configuration has a time limit set that it will "wait" for the requested information, by you, to be sent. That problem typically resides on the other end of the connection and not any of YOUR devices...it is often due to a server that is running slower because it is busy. Trying again at a different time may give results.
check the LAN cable from the internet connection going to router.make a sure that wire is OK.if the wire connection is a ok go to your PC/unit then make sure the Lancard/wire less lancard driver is complete or remove the Old lan/wieless lan drivers and install a new or update the drivers.good luck and have a nice day
problem occurs usually after upgrade of internet speed. contact your ISP again, ask them to check for latency or dropped packets within their network. they need to run a traceroute from their end and it would also be better if you can run a traceroute from your end. also run a speedtest through speedtest.net or speakeasy.net. There's also a possibility that the modem is becoming faulty. If your ISP provided you the modem it's still best to contact them for possible replacement.
...first of all :
latest firmware version is -all i know- version 3.01.29 so my question is : where did you get / found firmware version 3.01.30 ? can you give me a link ?
after installing the new firmware causing this problem after installation you should save your settings to take care. then you should first use internal 'new start / restart-funktion' of your router.
try this, if it helps.
when it should not help, then save settings as well and make hard-reset on your router. for this you press the reset-button at the back of your router - long enough, watch the blinking symbols on front.
after them you should ONLY MANUALLY configure the router for internet access, DO NOT USE the installation disc ! for manual configuration you should connect the router and your computer by cable, using ethernet-port #1 at the router.
then open your browser, enter 192.168.2.1 at address bar, no http or anything before or after, only this number... then the web-interface will be opened and on the left you find the navigation-menu.
enter menu 'internet wan' -> for usual highspeed / broadband- access you will get access-codes from your isp (internet service provider), then the connection type is pppoe...
