Hard reset the router and reflash or update the firmware.

If still wont work then it will be hardware problem (bad memory).

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.

I cannot stay connected to internet, my model 2701HG-B 2wire at&t dsl will start flashing red then disconnect me from the internet or my game site, how can i get this to stay fluently connected please!


You might want to try disconnecting everything EXCEPT the power cord. If you still get the red power light (it should stay there forever) then bring the gateway to Radio Shack or somewhere they have a 5 volt DC @ 2 amp power supply and plug it in for 5 to 10 minutes and see if the power light then stays green. If it stays green then all you need is a new power supply! If not, then the gateway is fried. Mine keeps going from a solid green power light to a flashing green power light and I can hear a relay click every 2 minutes at which time a pop-up say "ethernet line disconnected". I tried new power supply etc. to no avail! It is fried after 1.5 years! No more 2wire for me!

We have a 2701HG-B Gateway. The power light is red, the wireless light is green. The ethernet, DSL, and internet lights are off. How do I reset this? I tried the power down for 2 minutes thing already....


Your unit might not be bad. It could be that the configurations for the internet on it are incorrect. You will need to log onto the router, and check some information that you can obtain from the ISP. If it still doesn't work after checking, and correcting (if necessary) the configurations, then you made need to replace the router. One other thing it could possibly be is the ethernet cable that connects the modem, and the router, that is bad. If thats the case, them you could end up saving a lot of money by not having to get a new router. Just something else you night want to check into.

How many pc's can a 2wire gateway 2701hg-b


generally 4 at a time, but I don't know if there's really a limit, but you'll be sharing your bandwidth, which will slow down your connections.

To find out, open the prompt window and type the following:

ipconfig /all (notice the space) - hit enter.

Find the Default Gateway IP address.
Open Internet Explorer, and type the IP address above into the browser field for going to web pages. You will now be able to check the router yourself.

The ip may be something like: 192.168.2.1 - check it out.
