Question about Actiontec GT704WG Wireless Router (gs583ad3-01)
Well, my family has been using Verizon Online for about two years now, and this is the third or fourth router we have had to receive from them, specifically the second or third router that is this exact same model. The previous ones have all lived their life spans in roughly 8 months time. The end of which, we spend 3 days on the phone with Verizon tech support in India, before they actually admit the router is going to need to be replaced, the majority of which is always spent on the same repetitive "ipconfig" steps. The router never fails not to be able to be used again, and they send us another one. This is my current problem. The past several days, the third light from the left on the router has been deactivated, seemingly like clockwork. Roughly half the time, because of the absence of this light, the internet is unavailable. I have unplugged the router and let it sit, the first time for 5 minutes, and again for 20 another day. This appears to temporarily solve the problem, but within about 6 hours, the helpful effects have subsided. I realize this has been quite a lengthy post, but this problem has been recurring for about 2 years with these routers. My sincere thanks to those who have managed to work their way through my story, and I hope you can help me out.
Hi Barthooper If you have tried with several routers and it seems that the problem persists. I believe the problem lies with the DSL line. and with any router. If they have replaced the router and problem persists. I believe a technical problem persists with the DSL line that is coming into your house. Try using the same router in your friends house I am sure that it should work and the problem is very much that's related with the connection into your house!!!
