Steps to install an Actiontec GT704WG wired home network

Before you can connect a computer to your home network, you must configure Windows to automatically obtain an IP address for the Actiontec gateway.

The instructions and illustrations below use Windows XP. Although you can set up a network in Windows 98 SE, Me and 2000, you will find it significantly easier if the computer connected to the router or gateway is running Windows XP or Vista. Windows XP and Vista were designed with features and installation wizards specifically for networking.

To configure your NIC connection in Windows XP:
