It depends on your DSL connection- technically anything above 56k is "high-speed internet"- if you are concerned about the speeds you are getting, contact Verizon tech support for further assistance- you could have an issue with your connection, and they would be the ones able to setup for a technician to come out/ have the maintenance office repair the connection

Are you on Consumer Verizon DSL? Fair warning if you are using Business Static- the Actiontec is a poor choice due to issues working on a static IP circuit. - I'd use a 6110 and a third party router! However, by default, the only thing you would need to do to setup the modem is go through the activation page when you plug the modem in. If you require an user name and password, it would set that up. Bar any problems, you can contact Verizon technical support since the Actiontec Gateway is fully supported.

If my memory serves me, I didn't install the software for my Actiontec modem/router combo. I call Verizon and told them I refused to install the software and they helped step me through getting rid of this garbage. You should never have to install software to get a modem or router to work as any software the comes with it, is simply used to provide easier configuration.

Since I couldn't find anything about bypassing this software, I would suggest contacting Verizon directly. Their technical support should be able to assist you.

you may try this and see if this help solve your problem

Step 1: Shutdown the computer.
Step 2: Unplug the router’s power cable.
Step 3: Unplug the Broadband modem’s power cable and wait for 30 seconds.
Step 4: Plug in the Broadband modem’s power cable and wait for its lights to appear stable.
Step 5: Plug in the router's power cable once the modem’s lights appear stable.
Step 6: Power on the computer on and test the Internet connection.

if this still didnot work, maybe you need to upgrade the firmware of your router

you can factory reset the router and then it should allow you to create a new password. Hold reset button in back down for 12+ seconds. be advised this will reset all router settings back to factory defaults.

How do you know that you do not have wifi in the house? that router is a wifi router, do you have any wireless devices that you can try to connect with before your grand kids come over? Like I said the router you have is a wifi router so when the grand kids come over they will probably be able to connect, they will probably just need the SSID and WPA2 key that can be found on a sticker on the router.

1. not plugged in
2. bad outlet
3. the on/off switch on the back is set to the off position
4. bad power supply unit

if it doesn't turn on after checking all this then you need a replacement.

What device are you using? smart TV? are you connected via wifi or lan ethernet cable?

Actiontec... | Answered on Aug 13, 2014

Check cable connections.

Try unplugging router from power for five minutes.

If that does not work call Internet Service provider to check if there is a problem with their server.

I had this error. There was an old rule for an old device that was no loonger connected. If a device that has a rule is not connected, no information will show up telling you there is a rule. But it already exists and is hidden. The rule will only show up when the device is connected. But the rule is active wether or not the device is connected.

The only .I found to fix this is to reset the router to defualt settings, this will remove the old device and it's tules from memotry.

While the router is turned on, look in the back and locate the reset button. Press and hold for 10 to 15 seconds and then release. The router should reboot and return to factory settings.
Go to the router page and use the fallowing to log in.

User: admin
Pass: admin

You can re-enter all router info after login.

Look on the underside of the Router. it is usually marked on there. look for a WEP or WPA with a number.

Sounds like you have Verizon software on your computer. The router has nothing to do with that. Go into control panel > add remove programs and remove the Verizon software.

If you fail after ping your IP address then it may be problem in your physical connection,so you should check connection like:

check cable modem status light. If it is solid green, it indicates that your cable modem has a good connection. If the light is off, check modem's physical connection.

Verify that the Internet light on your wireless router is solid or blinking green. It indicates a good connection and correct wiring. If the light is off, check the Ethernet wire's connection between your modem and router.

May be it can be cause of Incorrect wireless network setup & configuration. Recheck and correct the Ethernet connection between your PC and the router device.
