2 wire 2700 hg-b

I just bought this modem off ebay to hopefully solve my xbox 360 wireless adapter connection problems and I am stuck. I had a 2 wire 1701 which they said would not work so I bought this one. Problem is I have a normal telephone line connection and the back of the 2700 only has ethernet does this mean I can not use this modem with my dsl???

The 2Wire 2700 is a residential gateway, a modem and router in-one. There is an RJ-11 jack in the back of the gateway and this is where your dsl phone cord plugs in. There are four RJ-45 jacks in the back for connecting devices using ethernet cable. As a router is can operate both wirelessly and wired. For wireless operation you'll need the WEP key which is located on the tag on the bottom of the gateway. It's the number enclosed in brackets, between the two bar codes.

If you have dsl them your phone connection should plug into the dsl modem. If you only have ethernet ports in the back it sounds like it's a router. You would plug the modem into the router wan port via a Cat5 cable.

Do u need a wireless adaptor to set up xbox live??


No, a Xbox 360 Wireless Adapter is not required to access, and set up Xbox Live, but you will need an internet connection. If you are close enough to a modem or router, you can buy an Ethernet cord, and plug it in to both the modem/router, and firmly into your Xbox 360 console. You will either need the Xbox 360 Wireless Adapter, or the Ethernet cord. Ethernet cords are very cheaper, much cheaper than a Wireless Adapter, but the Wireless Adapters are much or easier to reason with. So choose wisely with money.

Cant connect to live


To connect to Xbox Live, you will need a wired Ethernet cord plugged into the back of your Xbox console. If you are using a Xbox 360 Wireless Adapter, you have to plug it in into the back of your Xbox located to the bottom left from flat on the ground. Also make sure you have a strong enough connection on your internet, and router/modem. Make sure your Xbox console is close enough to your router or modem as well. Also attempt to reset your connection and modem/router and see if this works. 1 or 2 bars are to low for Xbox Live gameplay. 3 or 4 bars are just quite enough. I hope this helped, just contact me if you have further questions or problems!

I've never heard of a Wireless Adapter turning amber or orange? This can be a simple light problem inside your Xbox 360. If it were fixed, the highest possibility is that color should be red. If so, this means the connection is not strong enough to your modem, and adapter. You will have move your Xbox 360 console closer to your wireless modem for the connection to be the best.

My xbox wireless adapter


You may need to foward ports and allow the router to talk to your xbox 360. I do not know the ports of the top of my head but when u get the error from your xbox 360 that it cant connect look into where it says ways to solve the problem. It should tell you the ports. Personaly I am wired and its way better. No lag and no problems.

Hope this helps

Att 2wire wireless and dlink


the only thing you need for connecting 360 to wireless is an Internet connection, an 802.11G wireless router, and a wifi adapter that connects to your 360. They have these at walmart or any gaming store. I suggest giving your 2-Wire back to ATT! NOT QUALITY. Especially for gaming.
I myself prefer my box to be hard wired as lag is far less. BUT..for wifi
Get a Linksys Router and XBox brand wifi adapter for 360. Also google xbox connect. Instead of paying for LIVE

2 Solutions-----

Number 1 - If your ethernet cord is going from a modem straight to your 360, then get your modem replaced by your ISP.
This will probobly be free, but if your charged, it will be a small fee.

Number 2 - If you have it going to a routerfrom a modem, then go to your 360 main screen, scroll to the far right 'System' blade, select the 4th choice 'Network Settings', and test your Xbox LIVE Connection. It will ask you to sign out. Select yes.

Results should come up (for wired router)

Network Adapter - Wired
Wireless Network - (Left Blank)
IP Address - Confirmed
DNS - Confirmed
MTU - Confirmed
ICMP - Confirmed
XBOX LIVE - Confirmed
NAT - (either moderate, opened, or strict)

If all those are the same, the problem has nothing to do with the xbox itself and you need a new router, or modem.

If results come out to be
''Network Adapter - Disconnected''
After test is run (and your 360 is connected properly to your router AND modem then you have a hardware problem. Whether the problem is in the 360 or the router/modem is easy to test.

Connect the modem directly to the 360 via ethernet. If this fixes the problem, the router is fail.

If you can get on the internet wirelessly and grounded on a computer, the 360 is busted.


Sorry it took me so long to explain that, but i hope it helps you.

Best of luck
