If you have a laptop and it has built in wireless adapter, it may have a switch or a button that you need to switch on in to turn on the wireless connection radio. Usually, it can be found on the sides or on the front panel of the laptop. On other laptops, you will need to hit some combination of keys on the laptop's keyboard to turn on the wireless connection radio, for example, Fn+F5. Please refer to the manual of your laptop for reference on how to turn on or enable its wireless radio.

By the way, what is the model of your laptop?

    Press FN + F2 on the keyboard to turn on the optional wireless Ethernet radio,

    or Fn + F6 to turn on the optional Bluetooth radio. The wireless networking

    status indicator turns on when the wireless Ethernet radio is turned on.

    2. Right-click the Wireless Network Connection icon, then click View

It should be within the specs that you have provided it should be compatible... tha only thing that isn't compatible is the IEEE 802.11n 2wire is IEEE 802.11a/b/g
either you customize the setting for 2wire or disable the WEP

I cant set up internet for my laptop and 2WIRE


It sound like your wireless settings on the laptop are incorrect...pay close attention to your encryption settings as they are often the cause. In fact, I would suggest disabling encryption on the wireless router as a test and seeing if the laptop will connect correctly. If it does you know the problem is in your security settings.

Have SBCglobal with 2wire but want N wireless capability


Follow the dots -

2 wire DSL wire to back of DSL modem.

Ethernet cable out of DSL modem, to current router (if you have one).

Ethernet cable out of current router (if you have one) to new Wireless N router.

If you currently have a wireless G router, keep it, or, use the new Wireless G/N router alone. You will need to set up all security settings again if you remove your current router, and if the new router is N only, you will need to make sure all your wireless connecting computers have wireless N cards in them.

I want to use 2 wire ATT UVerse -- BUT NOT WIRELESS


the 2wire att uverse router, does not broadcast wireless signal if there is no wireless computer connected to its network. regarding the unchecking of the ssid, it will only hide the network name of your router, but technically, if a computer will try to connect to your router, it will still "send" wireless signal to a computer within its range.

you do not have to worry about the wireless signal being sent, if nobody connects to the router via wireless cionnection.

Use 2700 as router only?


there's a way to make the gateway act as a router only but it's not really recommended since there's a possibility that the connection will not be as stable as it should.
anyways you can try the following steps in making your gateway act as a router (not really a router but just a switch and a wireless access point).
- access the router's web user interface by typing http://192.168.0.1 on your web browser
- then click on the "Advanced Configuration Settings"
- select the "Transparent Bridging" option (note: you must configure your wireless settings first before trying these steps since you might not be able to access the gateway's page anymore once you save the changes)
- set the vpi to 0 and vci to 32 if it asked you for those settings. next to 'ATM PVC Search' select the radio button next to Disable. ensure Bridged LLC is selected next to 'ATM Encapsulation'.
- then save the settings
- connect now the new modem to one of the ethernet ports of the 2700hg-d using an rj-45 or an ethernet cable

hope this'll help you.

2wire wireless adapter


Try using the Ethernet (network) cable instead of the USB connection.
