Protocols / Routing :: Can't Type Stock FIOS Router Actiontec MI424WR Password?

May 15, 2011

I'm using a stock FIOS router Actiontec MI424WR, and I'm trying to access the router settings at I type in my username fine, but when I type the password, each keystroke gives me more than one digit. Even holding Ctrl adds one, and letting go removes three characters. I've never seen this happen before, and I've tried it on two computers and three different browsers. I see that people recommend hard-resetting the router, but I was wondering why this has happened

Adding Second Wifi Router To Verizon Fios Mi424wr

Oct 23, 2012

I have a MI424WR for my Verizon Fios connection. The router is located downstairs, and I don't get Wifi in my bedroom upstairs. Is it possible to connect another WIFI router by ethernet to the MI424WR? Is there anyway where I can do it without the two router's wifi signals fighting each other? Is there a specific kind of router I should be looking for?

Actiontec MI424WR Won't Allow 2nd Login

Apr 28, 2012

Just upgraded to Verizon FIOS and had an Actiontec MI424WR Rev F router (firmware v.20.10.7) supplied. Went to white-list my ereader's MAC in router and intitial page asked me to change the default login and password which I planned to do anyway. I know what I changed them to. Made changes, logged out, then decided I really wasn't comfortable with WEP and went back to change it to WPA. All I got was "Login failed, please try again." Finally hit the reset button and started over at the "please change login and password" screen. I can get in then.

I've been through this six times now and cannot get past the initial login without a hard reset. Tried keeping "admin" as the login because I have met peripherials that are touchy about that. Not a major issue now that I have the router set up to my satisfaction, but it frustrates me to not have password access to any part of my system. (Yes, I am that anal.)

Actiontec MI424WR / Advantages To Gigabit Ethernet?

Mar 30, 2011

I am moving into an apartment thereafter. I have an HTPC in use, a personal computer for gaming/processing, and my fiancee has an Apple Macbook Pro that she uses quite often. I have an HDHomeRun Dual (2 tuners) for streaming OTA/QSM cable over the network (the HDHomeRun plugs into the network, not a computer). I also have a TV and Blu-Ray player that have ethernet ports.

Currently I use Verizon Fios and their Actiontec MI424WR router, which to my knowledge has gigabet ethernet. When I move I will probably be saddled with Comcast Xfinity Internet, which will supply a cable modem if I want, but no router. The only router I currently own is a Zyxel NBG-419N, which has only 100/10 ethernet ports. My current computers all have gigabit ethernet. For the home theatre components and my HTPC, I plan to pick up a network switch with gigabit ethernet. So my questions are:

1. If I use the Zyxel and the Comcast cable modem, would I be throttling my network speed at the router? I would hate to choke my speed just because one component does not have gigabit ethernet.

2. If I were to upgrade to, say, an Asus RT-N56U, would that make a huge difference on network browsing and throughput speeds?

3. Finally, what kind of cable is needed to maximize discernible speed increase? Cat5, Cat5e, or Cat6?

Linksys Wireless Router :: E1200 With Verizon Fios Actiontec?

Feb 8, 2012

I bought the Linksys E1200 for it's wireless N and the guest account. set up my new Linksys E1200 router to use for wireless N access rather that my Verizon Fios provided Actiontec (model M4124-WR Rev.C) which is only wireless G, and so that I can use the guest account. I have an ethernet cable running from one of the 4 ethernet ports on the E1200 to one of the 4 LAN ports on the Actiontec. I have the wireless turned off on the Actiontec, and have the E1200 set as wireless N signal seems to be working fine from the E1200, and I was able to turn on the guest account on the E1200 and "connect" to it on my iPhone 4, but then when I open Safari I can not connect to the internet.

Fios Wifi Weak 20 Feet From Actiontec Mi424 Router - Options?

Aug 17, 2012

I got Fios installed this week. Router is the Actiontec MI424, it sits int he living room. I ran a speed test of the wifi on my laptop in the living room, and the internet speeds were great. Here's my problem. I'm in a 2 br condo, not a huge place maybe like 1200 Sq feet, same floor. Wifi is awesome in the living room, but in the bedroom it hangs. I still have a signal, varying for low to good, but it takes forever to open a web page, to the point where you can't use the internet. Bedroom is just down the hall.I called Verizon. They told me they can only guarantee the wifi signal 10 feet from the router, after that no promises. My frustration is that with my previous provider, which was giving me a slower internet connection, my wifi in the bedroom was fine and the router was in the exact same spot. Of course I used my own router? I know there are instructions on connecting my old router to the fios one and using my old router for wifi.

Linksys Wireless Router :: EA6500 No Internet Connected To Verizon FIOS Actiontec Router

Jan 20, 2013

I connected EA6500 internet port to actiontec router provided by Verizon fios. I don't have any other way to connect as FIOS connection is coax to actiontec modem. I must take a drop from actiontec to internet port on EA6500.
With that said, I can't get EA6500 to work, it keeps saying no internet. The only way I can get it to work is when I set it to bridge mode. This makes my EA6500 a dumb switch/access point. I didn't spend $200 for a switch. I need to use advanced features offered by this router but I can't until this problem is fixed. I made sure I am running latest version of firmware (
I have reset my fios router as well as ea6500 to factory defaults multiple times.

Cisco Switches :: SG300-10 / Setup Multiple Routed VLANs Going Back To FiOS Actiontec Router

Aug 13, 2011

I just received a new Cisco SG300-10 and am configuring it in Layer 3 mode.  I am trying to setup multiple routed VLANs going back to a FiOS Actiontec router.  My configuration is as follows.
Fios Router:
Assigning DHCP through 100.
 SG300-10 has VLan 1 ip used for Mgmt.
VLAN2 is
VLAN3 is
I have a static route set on the fios router for both subnets setup as follows.
Destination Gateway Netmask Metric 1
Destination Gateway Netmask Metric 1
I have a laptop connected to Gi8 on the Cisco (Vlan 3) and statically assigned, with a gateway of  DNS set to the fios router ( 
Everything pretty much works EXCEPT, I cannot get out to the internet from either vlan.  Traffic routes between vlans/and the default subnet on the fios without issue.
When I ping out, DNS resolves, but will not go past the fios router.  Am I missing a setting somewhere?

Protocols / Routing :: Port Forwarding On Actiontec Q1000?

I have my internet through CenturyLink which is a DSL connection running on an Actiontec Q1000 on a Windows 7 set up. I'm trying to run a subsonic server on my computer to stream my music collection. It was all working beautifully until I had to switch to this modem from my previous. Now, when I go to, it can't see that 4040 and 8080 are open. They need to be for subsonic to work?

Protocols / Routing :: Canyon Wireless N Router CNP-WF514N1A Not Working After Changing Password?

Feb 19, 2012

I have a CANYON Wireless N Router CNP-WF514N1A. It was working properly, but I changed its deafult password to my own . ( -> wireless security -> new pass -> okay -> reboot computer ). After I restarted the computer, the router stopped working. The lights on it are fine, and if I plug the net cable into the computer I have internet too. The problem is, if I plug the cable into the router, I don't have internet. And I can't open either.

Protocols / Routing :: DI-524 Can't Access Username / Password Field

Jun 26, 2012

I did not know the username and password for my DI-524 so I wanted to do a reset...used a paper clip and held the reset button for ten seconds, unplugged it, powered it up, and as per online instructions tried to type in to access the username and password field so that I could enter "admin" and blank password. Here's where my lack of knowledge comes in. I am working off a MacBook with no Ethernet connection, just wifi. Is what I am trying to do even possible? Or does the computer I configure the router with have to be hardwired to the Internet while I do it?

Type A Password And Username To Get Connected?

Jun 24, 2012

I use a broadband net connection. DSL Ehernet connection. I need to type a pssword and username to get connected. Anyways, that's not the problem. The problem is after powering on the modemt, the link in my modem starts to blink every 2min. which causes the broken connection. Sometimes I cant even connect to the net because the link doesn't stop to blink.. I'm unable to do anything as the connection keeps going off. There might be a question of down servers, But the others who is using the same plan as mine, not having such trouble.

Linksys Wireless Router :: E4200 Cannot Use The Client Name With Stock Firmware

Mar 10, 2012

I've assigned an ip address to my htpc using dhcp reservation. On my old router I could use the client name, for instance: ssh name@clientName Instead of: ssh name@ipAddress Currently I cannot do this with the stock cisco firmware (unless I'm mistaken). Is there something I have to do to get it working? Or do I have to resort to tomatoUSB/WRT.

Cisco Switching/Routing :: 7201 Connecting To Router Through Modem And AUX Port But Can't Type

Mar 29, 2010

I am having an issue with connecting to a Cisco 7201 via the AUX port through a modem. The modem is plugged into the AUX port and I am dialing into the modem, everything seems to be working fine as I get a login prompt and my banner etc but I can't type anytihng. If I type then nothings happens... If I just type a bunch of random characters on the keyboard then when the authentication prompt times out and it goes back to the username, it will show a few of those characters.. I have tried many things, changing speeds etc, I have even tried changing modems and it is doing the exact same thing.Here is my config:
line aux 0 exec-timeout 2 0 modem Dialin transport input all stopbits 1 speed 115200 flowcontrol hardware
I have searched on here and found people having similar problems but no solutions. I have tried this one a Cisco 2821 with the same config and it works with no problem, the only difference is the phone line is different.

Windows 7 / Can't Connect Wirelessly To MI424WR

Jul 19, 2012

I am using Windows 7 on my laptop and trying to connect to my dad's Actiontec M1424WR router wirelessly. It picks up the signal fine, but whenever I try to connect, it takes a while and then just says it can't connect. It will continue to try and connect, only ever getting as far as limited access then quickly losing the connection, all with a Good signal. My dad and brothers all use Windows 7 laptops as well and they are and have been connected just fine. We tried a wired connection and that works perfectly too, so the only problem is getting it to work wirelessly now.

D-Link DIR-601 :: Flash To Stock Firmware From Dd-wrt?

Dec 7, 2011

I recently updated my firmware to dd-wrt... now I would like to switch back to stock firmware. I don't like the fact that any change I make basically resets the router.  Plus DD-WRT GUI is VERY slow for me?I've followed every tutorial on how to do this, but the router will not accept the stock firmware.  I've gotten the image to upload (according to the browser), but at 100% the flashing orange light & globe light just continue to blink & do nothing.  I never see the other lights "flash" confirming the upgrade has took.  I've set my IP manually through "Network Connections>Properties>TCP/IPv4" before trying.  I get to the emergency firmware page...set it upload Version A1. Sometimes it uploads...but like I said, it never takes.

Protocols / Routing :: Changing WAN IP On 3g / 4g Router?

Feb 6, 2013

I need the capability to log into the 3g/4g modem and change the Wan IP address. Doe anyone know of a 3g/4g modem that allows you to do that. My other option would be to disable the wireless radio on the 3g/4g router and connect my Linksys Wireless router that I know I can log in and change the WAN Ip. It looks like to me that this model below would allow me to do that?MBR1516 Will turning off wireless radio on the 3g/4g router completely turn off all routing or could there be a conflict with my Linksys wireless router?

Protocols / Routing :: Using A Second Router As A Shield?

Mar 5, 2013

See attached diagram, which shows me using the tp-link router to protect my internal network from the guest network for internal security.Should I put the tp-link router into a DMZ on the first main Orcon router to be able to make remote access form the web into my network? I have an IP camera etc that I need to access from the WWW. If I do this does this have any security implications; both for my network or the guestsMy reasoning is not; as the TP-Link still acts as my firewall and the specific address of the TP-Link doesn't affect the guest, but I thought I'd check with the Pros!?

I have a Netgear WNDR3700 v2 that I loaded with dd-wrt (v24-sp2 std). The only real problem that I am having is with the wireless. I can't get anything to connect at 300mbps. Even if I set it to n only it still only connects at 54mbps. Right now I am running it with encrytion off to rule out that causing any problems. and yes it would connect at 300mbps with the stock netgear firmware.

Cisco Wireless :: 2602 - What AP To Stock For Doing Site Surveys

Apr 3, 2013

Instead of stocking every known AP and every external connector, I would like to query which APs to stock for general site surveys....
I have 2 customers that will require surveys in the near plans on using the 2602e AP, and the other a 3602e AP. I have read somewhere that the 1140 makes an excellent proxy for the 2602 and several other Cisco APs (as the RF characteristics are similar) so that I only have to stock that one AP to use for those site surveys-  but I haven't seen any recommendations about the 3600 series AP yet...
What AP to stock for doing Cisco site surveys? Maybe one or two models only?

Protocols / Routing :: Why Would Router Communicate To Host

Feb 19, 2013

I am just confused over the fact that a router configured with address (assuming it's got mask) can communicate to a PC connected to one of it's LAN ports and manually setup to have address. I was sure that since these are two different subnets they won't see each other. But they do and searched wiki and just googled to see why, but with no success. A friend of my friend says something about 'same range' but it makes little sense to me.

I just need a good article about it or a crystall clear explanation, because I feel my understanding of IP is not as good as I used to believe.

Protocols / Routing :: Connecting To Internet Via Router

Mar 31, 2011

I have att dsl and they supplied me with a modem, a motorola model type 2210, and my belkin surf N300 router is giving me issues connecting to the internet. Im pretty sure my wireless network adapter is a netgear wg311v3.The issue im having is that sometimes i can connect to the internet just fine, and sometimes i cant connect to the internet. I know it is a router issue because when i plug the modem into my comp, i can access the internet 100% fine.I also think it is not a wireless network adapter issue because i ran an ethernet cable from the router to my comp and had the same issues. There are 2 other computers on the network, one of them is a year or two newer than my dell desktop, and has no issues whatsoever connecting to the internet via the router. The other computer on the network is a Wii, and has connection issues when playing online (probly a different issue), but can access the internet no problem.
