I purchased a Actiontec GT784WNV from Amazon three months ago and set it up
with minimum effort. It worked well on both ethernet and Wifi until recently.
My main PC was on wifi and started having problems while the second PC
worked OK on ethernet. I moved the modem to connect the main PC to ethernet
The second PC (now on wifi) now has a very slow and erratic connection.
The problem showed up using my main PC wifi card and two different
USB wifi adapters on the second PC. In addition, my TV wifi netflix wifi also
stopped working. These tests indicate to me modem transmitter problems
even though the wifi signal bars show a strong signal.
I have reset the router which helps for awhile. It has good ventilation and
does not appear to be overheating. I have tried channel 6 and 11 on the
modem without helping.
Any ideas on how to confirm the Actiontec transmitter is broken or how to fix?
There are couple of settings you can try and make the wi-fi work properly.
Change the security type from WPA-WPA2 to just WPA.
Change the wireless mode from b/g/n to b&g
If possible, change the frequency channel to fixed mode (say 7 or 11).
I have tried this and all of my wireless devices work as a charm. Hope this works for you too!
With a GT784WNV I would advise sticking with WPA2 and a fixed channel setting, along with B/G/N mode. But whatever works best!

Why do you recommed that?

I recommend those settings both for stability and compatibility, with security being included into the mix. I forget if the GT784WNV has an option for only G and N devices, but that'd be the better option to select over B/G/N.
Do you know if the ActionTec model GT784WNV supports a wireless signal booster?
