Question about Actiontec (GT701) Modem

Actiontec Modem Won't Work!

So our dsl internet, through Qwest, was extremely slow. So my husband and his friend throught they could solve the problem. They didn't. I fixed the internet problem, but now our modem doesn't work! We used our friends modem, the internet works fine now. What they did was push the reset button on the back of the modem. Now when you plug it in, the power light glows red and the DSL and the Ethernet light blink green. No other lights are on. Help!

Pull out the power plug on the back of the modem, then reinsert it. Should reset the modem

Take a wire and carefully touch it to the two attachment points of the copper ring on the left side while it is plugged in. I first froze my system for 15 min then thawed out and touched the wire as instructed and all works fine.

To open the box remove the clear soft contacts on the bottom, should be four. Using a small philips remove them and pull the box in two. Then fix according.

Hope this helps

I have DSL through Qwest and can connect to the internet, but the modem will drop internet connection then come back on then drop again. I will unplug the modem and restart it; it will connect then drop...


check the configuration of the modem if you can. I do not know the exact model of the modem, could you post it? then with the exact model of the modem you could google it for a Manual, Handbook, or simply good configurations. If the configurations are good, then could be the firmware that is not updated, or in the last case ask Qwest to change your modem for one that works.
A piece of advice don't open it or modify it because you could void the warranty, in case of a change.

Hope this help you!!!

I have a Qwest Actiontec modem that has worked fine until today. Now the DSL light is blinking and the Internet light does not come on. I have rebooted, but no fix. thanks!


If the DSL light is blinking it means that there is no DSL carrier signal to your modem. Check the phone line and make sure you have no open lines and filters are on all the devices hooked up to your phone system except your modem. You can check for an open line by hooking up a phone to the phone line going into your modem and listen for a dial tone.

Did you Unplug the Modem from Your Electrical Outlet, AND Unplug the Telephone Line coming in too, for 5 minutes?? Give "it" a chance to Completely Re-set/Reboot..I have a GT701 DSL Modem, that's what I did, and it worked fine. "IF" that doesn't work I would go to "Support" at either Action-Tech or Your DSL/IP Provider. Hope this Helps you.
