To connect your computer to a wireless router, you click the Refresh network list, then Choose your wireless network and then click Connect to your secured Wireless Network, it will asks for a Network Key before allowing you to connect into your wireless network. This Network Key is either the WEP, or WPA or WPA2 Encryption key that is used to configure the Wireless Router. The Passphrase is an alternate way to setup the Encryption key.
When you are requested for a Network Key, you can just enter the Passphrase that was used to configure the Encryption key in the wireless router. http://www.fixya.com/support/r5270415-network_password_network_address For information on securing your wireless network, configuring the wireless router and configuring the wireless card in the laptop/computer, please click on this link and follow my instructions :- http://www.fixya.com/support/r3559128-wireless_router_security

I had exactly the same problem. Check your mtu settings on the 2wire. I think the modem is set at 1450 (or there abouts) An article (sorry can't find a link) suggested raising it to 1500 this didnt work for me so I started reducing it instead. Once i set it at 1400 mtu I was able to log on to secure sites again. Hope this helps.

Make sure that the computer that you want to telnet to is running the telnet service, and that the firewall on that PC (if using XP/Vista/Win7 and it is switched on, or you have a third party software firewall installed) allows connections to the telnet server.

From the other computer you should be able to just run telnet [destination IP address] and press enter (may need to install telnet client on Windows 7)

Hope that helps

You can measure the power cord voltage with a voltmeter. The specifications, and voltage output are on the transformer, or modem body. If you don't have a voltmeter, you can take the power supply into Best Buy, Radio Shack, or any computer shop, and they'll measure it for you. If the voltage is ok on the power supply, chances are you have a bad modem, in which case you'd be better off getting a new one. Hope this helps.

Oh my ... This is a question where I dont have to ask for more information.

Pleae connect your desktop to the router using a Cat 5 ethernet cable. I'm not a fan of USB connection for networks ... Ethernet works so much better. Do this even if you have to add a NIC to your computer.

You may find some benefit from using Network Magic, free to download and evaluate. You may like it as much as I do and pay for full extended use NM can perform all your network administrator duties. (I have 5 interconnected networks in my house that connect more than 20 computers)

Thanks for using FixYa.com

Positive comments always welcome

Usually that is due to a virus or P2P software. You can turn it off if you want.

Logging into your 2wire by typing in the address bar of your browser.
Click on the firewall tab then advanced settings
You will see attach detection on the right hand side
Uncheck the box for "excessive sessions" box
Then hit save.

There are possibilities of network broadcast on your network, that choks the firewall. The next time when you have this problem, try isolating the machines one by one & narrow down the issue.

What you can do, is take the HPNA adapter from the back of the computer and plug the phone cable portion of it directly to the 1800hg's phone port. Since your 1800hg only has 1 phone port though it will not surf the internet, but this is a suggestion to try to make sure the inside wiring in your house is not bad. If you do this though your computer should say its connected, if it doesnt then it could be a driver issue or the phone cable in the HPNA adapter (try a new one then). If its the driver then try support.2wire.com for the regular usb drivers.
