SOURCE: Use a Qwest Actiontec GT701-WG router with a different ISP?

Yes, if the other isp is also providing dsl services, but you will have to configure the device the other isp will not help you with that.

but its really not that difficult.

SOURCE: cant get my notebook to connect wirelessly to the router/net

It does sound like you may need to upgrade firmware. Not sure what OSyou are running?

You might like to try:

1. Disable Windows Firewall

2.In Internet Options Control Panel go to the connection tab and then theLAN Settings where you can uncheck the "Automatically detect settings"button.

3. If you have any third party software, I would get ridof this and ensure that the"Windows Zero Configuration" in the Servicesmenu is set to "Automatic" and the status is started.

Interestingly,Anti Virus programs sometimes interfere with wireless set up - youcould see if it helps by disabling it whilst configuring your wireless.It might also be worth trying to connect without any encryption code& see if that will connect - you can then sort out the encryption.

Plug your internet into the router then, the router to the computer. Go to your network settings and run the network setup. This will change the settings in windows to except the router into the network. You may have to restart the computer. This should give you internet access to your computer through your router.

more then likely the wireless router will work with the DS. You'll just need to make sure you enter the settings exactly. You should just be able to put a wpa-psk key in your wireless router and on the DS.
In the computer world just because something isn't supported, doesn't mean it won't work. It just means the manufacturer won't help you make it work.

Yes this is a normal method to setup a wireless network.
To set-up and secure the wireless router from unauthorized access, follow these steps :-
1. Connect the wireless router to your computer with a LAN cable.
2. Start your browser and enter the router's configuration URL IP address.
3. Enter the router setup, login and password
4. Change the admin password
5. Go to the wireless settings and change the default SSID and turn off SSID broadcast.
6. Setup encryption key the strongest is WPA2 (if not then WPA).
7. For further security measures - turn on MAC address filtering and enter the MAC address of the wireless cards on the computer/s you want to connect to this wireless router.
8. Record the settings you have made and keep it in a safe place and Save the settings.
9. Configure the wireless cards on the computer/s with the SSID and encryption settings of the router.
10. Remove the LAN cable between the router and the computer then the computers should be able to connect to the router.

New iMac very very slow loading pages with Actiontec GT704-WG


I have seen this before and this has cured it:
Check the DNS settings in the Network panel and enter a manual DNS that matches the base address of the router (192.168.0.1 for this router).
System Preferences > Network > Ethernet > Advanced > DNS. Click the + sign and add 192.168.0.1. Click OK, and click Apply on the next screen.

Actiontec GT701-WG won't operate wirelessly


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.

Actiontec GT704-WG wireless connection not working


Hi,
you say it suddenly stopped working, if you can connect to the router via ethernet cable then try to access the router's web utility page and make sure your router is in mixed or G-only. If you can't still connect to the router through wireless then try restarting the Wireless Zero Configuration from windows. This is how it's made: Go to control panel and double-click "administrative tools", then double-click "services". You will see a list, scroll down to Wireless Zero Configuration and click "stop", you'll see a progress bar. After that click "start", you'll see another progress bar. Now try connecting to your router via wireless connection. If you still can't connect then repair the connection by right-clicking the wireless icon at the bottom right corner. Keep repairing until you connect.
Hope this works!
