Hey I just got a new internet router. It's an Actiontec GT704WG. When I try to connect to the internet using it, the internet light is red and the computer says "limited or no connectivity." :thumbsup: I checked the gateway IP and it was started with a 192. I then reconnected the old internet box which is a ZyXEL Prestige 600 series and checked the gateway IP, and it started with a 172. I think this may be my problem and if it is, how do I fix it or reset my gateway IP? Thanks.

Hello Landon,

Try powering-off everything first, then powering-up the devices in sequence, as described here:

Usually your Gateway IP is the IP of the router itself so its not not normal that they r different .

just make sure that when u connect the new router that has an IP that starts with 192 , that the computer should be in the same IP range and having the router IP as Gateway IP.

Hi, you have placed your user account name and password in the router?
Also to find your ip address type in a command prompt: ipconfig
