Wireless capability is built right into the Actiontec 784 and V1000H gateways.

have its own wireless Network Interface Card (NIC) installed.

You may contact your Telecom office at 1-888-CALL-TDS to purchase a
wireless NIC if you do not have one.


Instructions for an Actiontec 784 or V1000H DSL Gateway:

If you have an Actiontec 784 or V1000H you will not need to enable the
wireless features of the modem. The wireless features will already be on,
and WPA security will be enabled.

The network name (SSID) and the WPA key / passphrase required
to access your secured connection are printed on a sticker on the
bottom of your modem. The key / passphrase is case sensitive.
The Wi-Fi Protected Setup (WPS) button that some wireless
devices may ask for is on the front of the modem.

You may still need to configure each of your computers' wireless NICs
(network interface cards) by consulting your NIC manufacturer's manual.

In some cases you may need to modify the wireless settings on the
modem itself. For example, some older wireless network devices do not
support WPA security. If you need to change your settings, you can
follow these steps:

  1. Connect your computer to the modem directly with an Ethernet
    cable.
  2. Open your Web Browser (example: Internet Explorer).
  3. Type http://192.168.0.1 in the address or location text box and
    press Enter.
  4. Click the Wireless Setup icon at the top of the screen. From here
    you can view and change the modem's wireless settings. Click
    Apply at the bottom of the screen to save any changes that are
    made.
