Question about Actiontec GT704WG Wireless Router (gs583ad3-01)

1 Answer

I have an actiontec gt704wg wireless router (from my previous Verizon DSL service)...I now have a Netgear CGD24G wireless router with Brighthouse roadrunner service...I want to connect my actiontec router wirelessly to so that I can network the other side of my house (xbox) by plugging directly into the actiontec... Kind of a weird setup, but I can't get it to work...ideas? Or is this even possible?

Unfortunately, no. You would be better off Ebaying the actiontec and getting a dedicated router- the reason is that the only uplink on the actiontec is the dsl port- not ethernet. Theoretically you could mod the firmware to make the wireless an access point only- but it would still have the achilles heel of needing an uplink.

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.

Am I getting high speed thru my actiontec gt704wg router


It depends on your DSL connection- technically anything above 56k is "high-speed internet"- if you are concerned about the speeds you are getting, contact Verizon tech support for further assistance- you could have an issue with your connection, and they would be the ones able to setup for a technician to come out/ have the maintenance office repair the connection

you can try to reset the router itself,there is a little button at the back of it where you can insert a pin or a pencil,make sure that the router is on then press and hold the reset button for one minute then turn it off,then connect it to you ATT and access the firmware,if its still the same,theres no way for you to use it since thats the only way that you can do...

thanks and God Bless

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.

Actiontec gt704wg hates vista


Vista is almost as bad as Verizon services. I have had a ton of problems. I had a Westell router that kept going out and then I put my Actiontec on. It was a lot faster but still drops out all the time. When I log in to the router it says I have both dsl and internet connection. and then my pc shows I have the locals only. Where I live has old wiring and Verizon won't fix there end of it.
