Make sure that the wireless part of the router is enabled by logging in to the router's page. check if the wireless light is on. try to customize the wireless settings like changing the wireless name (ssid) and the wireless channel to prevent interferences.
make sure that the wireless adapter/card of the laptop is also installed properly.

hope this'll help you and just ask me if you have other concern

ciao!

Plug the actual network cable to configure the laptop first then, once you do that, it should be recognized by the router, some router models requiere you to do this before you can connect to them wirelessly...

I want use my 2wire (2701HG-B) Wireless Router without the dsl line


Modem and routers are considered only as access point you computer may be able to connect to your router but if you dont have a DSL line you will not be able to go on line... if you dont want a DSL line there are service that concentrates on wireless alone... in this DSL line are not required nor router but may provide you a USB wireless adapter that has their wireless service then again try calling an Internet Service provider for this options...
thanks... Roger

I want to know if my 2wire 2701HG-B supports WPS or AOSS? I'm trying to connect my laptop to my wireless printer but it goes through a Wireless Network which is my 2wire router obviously. If my router...


As long as you do not have your laptop set up on teh 2701HG-B's DMZ everything should work. I have the 2701HGV-B, almost the same except my can do VoIP, and I have my laptop running wirelessly and I can connect to the network printer.

Make sure the printer has a static IP address for your local LAN, which should be in the 192.168.X.X scope, or the printer will change IP addresses every time it resets and that will cause you to lose connection to it from the laptop.

As for WPS, there should be a sticker on the side of teh 2-Wire that has a 6 digital key number, all numbers no letters, that will be the WPS key.

Hope that helps.

Cannot find the wep key for my nintendo ds on the 2wire router


Theencryption key secures your data from unauthorized access. The router's password is a Passphrase or the WEP or WPA orWPA2 encryption key. The Passphrase generates the WEP or WPA or WPA2 encryptionkey and this is in the router's wireless settings. To connect to your wireless router, it needs the router'swireless settings configured ie SSID, WPA or WPA2 encryption key and also thewireless cards in all the laptops and or computers needs to be configured withthese router's wireless settings. Then the laptops and desktop computers cancommunicate with your wireless router.

What steps do I take to configure my 2wire 2701 hg-b to connect directly by ethernet cable to my Directv HD DVR and pick up the dsl signal being transmitted by my primary westell router? Both are wireless...


Connect the cable at both ends and do a red button (inside card door) reset of the DVR. To test the connection, do thus: Menu -> .....setup -> system setup -> network setup -> test connection. If it shows not connected then "reset defaults" and run "connect now"
As a basic security feature the ATT DSL 2Wire 2701HG-B router/gateway requires you to enter its pre-assigned WEP key to connect beyond the unit itself and then to the internet. Since the Direct TV DVR HD24D only does a basic connection without having a place to enter the 2701HG-B WEP key it never actually reaches the internet.
The 2Wire 2701HG-B has the ability for one attached unit to "pass through" its firewall and internal security settings using a so called "DMZplus" mode. I set the HR24D DVR to such a mode within the 2Wire unit and the DVR connected with the internet flawlessly.

Can I use 2WIRE 2701HG-B router in COX internet connection


No. A router has 2 main interface types WAN (for the internet connection side, and LAN (for the home network side) the 'LAN' side often has up to 4 ports and wireless connectivity for the home network.

The most common routers available at electronics retail use a CAT-5 connection for the WAN ports and the LAN ports. Your DSL modem/router uses a phone line input for it's WAN port, which uses a signal type that is incompatible with the cable modem output.

If COX doesn't offer a router with the cable modem package, you can go and purchase and common brand of home networking router, and attach it to the output of the cable modem.
