Question about Actiontec GT704WG Wireless Router (gs583ad3-01)

1 Answer

Cannot get the router to broadcast wireless

The wired connection is working fine, but it refuses to send out a wireless signal. When I access the router it doesn't seem to have any settings related to the wireless signal (but that's only as far as I can tell).

Additionally, the router is accessed via 192.168.0.1 when Verizon supposedly uses 192.168.1.1 - don't know if that's related to the problem or not.

CONTINUAL DISCONNECTION OF WIRELESS CONNECTION
There are a few things that can cause you to lose wireless connection with your wireless router. 1. Weak signal strength, check the signal strength on your wireless card. If it is weak move the wireless router away from brick or concrete walls, mirrors, fish tanks and if possible locate the wireless router higher up. 2. Have you secured your wireless router from people near your from unauthorized access? i.e. change the default password, setup encryption use WPA2 or WPA, change the default SSID, and turn off SSID broadcast, and for added protection, enable MAC address filtering which allows only the MAC address/es of your wireless card/s to connect to your wireless router. 3. You could be getting interference from electrical sources such as air conditioners, arc welders, washing machines etc. If so, the power supply to the wireless routers and computers etc should be connected to a surge protection power board, better still connect your computer equipment to an UPS (Uninterrupted Power Supply). 4. Check the channels of the wireless routers and access points in your area and change the broadcast channel on your wireless router to an unused channel or one that is currently used but has the weakest signal strength. This will minimize interference with your wireless router from other wireless routers and access points in your area.

My laptop shows full signal but refuses to connect to the router. The wireless phone rang two days ago and knocked me offline on wireless. Can someone please help? Nobody else's wireless device works...


It sounds like the wireless setup in the router may have gotten corrupted. From the wired PC, using a browser type 192.168.2.1 to access the router. It will ask you for a password. The default is to leave it blank. If you've set one, you'll need to give it the one you set. That'll get you into the router. Check the wireless setup. Everything else should be ok, or you wouldn't be able to access the internet from your wired PC.

If you can't find anything wrong, you can try rebooting the router and the modem. Shut both down as well as your wired PC. Wait 30 seconds. Boot the modem, the router and the PC at 30 second intervals.

Router randomly stops sending out wireless signal


You may be getting interference from other routers in your area.
Check to see what channels the other routers are broadcasting in your area, change it to a channel that is not being used.
The location of the router could affect the signal strength, move the router away from concrete reinforced walls etc, and or move the router to a higher position in a clear space.

I want to use 2 wire ATT UVerse -- BUT NOT WIRELESS


the 2wire att uverse router, does not broadcast wireless signal if there is no wireless computer connected to its network. regarding the unchecking of the ssid, it will only hide the network name of your router, but technically, if a computer will try to connect to your router, it will still "send" wireless signal to a computer within its range.

you do not have to worry about the wireless signal being sent, if nobody connects to the router via wireless cionnection.
