Creating a wireless network with an Actiontec GT704WG gateway in Windows XP


The final step is to test your Internet connection on each computer on your home network. This ensures that all the connections are secure, and the router and network adapter configurations are working properly.

  1. Open your Internet browser on the computer connected to your router.

  2. Enter http://www.verizon.com in the Address field. The Verizon home page should display. [Show Me]


  3. Repeat this process for each computer you are connecting to your home network.

  4. If you want a completely wireless network, remove the Ethernet cable (blue in the illustration below) that connects your computer to the Actiontec gateway.
