Question about 2wire HomePortal 1800HG Router (1000400229000)

1 Answer

Cannot Upload Files to any server

I am trying to use services like and among others, but none of them seem to be working, i just cant upload files into any of those services. I belive that it is some sort of configuration from my modem, because when I take my Laptop to college, everything seems to work just fine.

And also sometimes i cant Use Windows Live Messenger or check my e-mail because the browser just gets stuck after I type my e-mail and password. And i bought a new Desktop computer yesterday witha fresh copy of Windows XP home edition and it has the same exact problem.

What can be causing this?

SOURCE: Slow speeds compared to speedtouch 330 usb modem

How do you connect to the 2wire 2700HG? Wireless or ethernet? In any case I suggest to access the mdc (management and diagnostic console) of your 2wire and check the DSL Diagnostics under the Troubleshooting Category. Check the attenuation rate of your 2wire there so you can see if external problems are affecting the 2wire. The 2wire is also a modem\router and eventough it rarely affects the speed of your connection, the 2wire Firewall might also affect the speed of your cx. Another thing to check are the electrical interference on your 2wire. EMI (Electro Magnetic Interference) do affect the 2wire router greatly. I mean it LITERALLY. A great Interference can cut your signal strength from full bars to 1 bar even tough your just 10 feet away from the router. You can also check the Broadband Status on the Network at a Glance Page to check if the speed are jumping in and out. And also try to contact your Internet Service Provider or the 2wire direct technical support (1-877-3478680) for further assistance. God Bless!

Here is the solution obtained from my supplier, and this worked well for me:

If you have installed a 2Wire router/modem 1000/1701/1800/2700 series, and can surf the web just fine apart from some websites, such as MySpace, eBay and Hotmail, you may need to adjust your MTU settings.

Log into the router's management console page at page at

On the left side under "Advanced", click on "Configure Services"

Set the "Force Upstream MTU" value to 1396 then hit Submit. Reboot the modem/router.

Check out this for installation procedure:

Try this to check out how fast your modem is working. It seems speed varies a lot depending on how busy other subscribers are who are sharing facilities.

SOURCE: how do i configure my ip address manually for 2nd

Have you tried simply running the Network Connection Wizard from control panel? Here is a link to a basic guide. I'm not sure I understand whether there's an issue with the connecting computer or if you want to set up a host/client shared connection. If the latter see here. Does this apply to your situation?
Take a look at this post, and also see the FAQ sections of the same site for endless help.
You can also access 2wire tech support here.
If you think there may be some corruption in the 2nd computer, run chkdsk according to instructions here and here.
You might also have a look in the Device Manager and make sure the network adapter is working properly. It will show an exclamation point or question mark if it's having problems.
Your connection is behind the 2wire firewall, which should be turned on. If you mean your system firewall, OK for now...

I hope this information allows you to resolve this issue. If you need further assistance, please post back with a comment to this thread.

Cannot use WinXP System File Checker (SFC), RPC Server?

Are you trying this in safe mode?
Sometimes the RPC service will refuse to start. Assuming all other services are reset to their default values:

Start, run, CMD

net start (check the service again to be sure it is stopped)

net start rpcss
net start (check again)

if no joy, you need to use the XP CD to go to the Recovery Console.

From the Recovery Console type:


reboot the machine.

"Could not start the Remote Procedure Call (RPC) Service. Error 1058" error message when you manually start the Remote Procedure Call service

Some general things to try.

See if System Restore will get you back to a restore point before your problem with Explorer.

Try Safe Mode (Do you have this problem in Safe Mode?).

Try running ChkDsk to check your drive for errors. Right-click your Drive icon/ Properties/ Tools/ Error Checking. Select both boxes.

Run the System File Checker program from the Run Box by typing.....Sfc /Scannow in it and have your XP CD handy.

Sorry for the delayed response. Actually, I did not receive any notification when you posted your reply.
Yes, you'll have to upload the PDF file to your server. If your server doesn't support or store PDF files, you can try other online free files storage services like or any other equivalent services to host this file. Then you can provide that link on your webpage.

Hope this solves your problem. For more help and clarifications, please reply to this post. Thanks

Okay, you're either asking one of two things. First, you seem to be asking how to make web-pages visible online. Second, you seem to be asking how to upload a program to the web to allow people to download it.

So, in response to the first possible question.. To do that you need to set up a web-host. There are some which are free, and some which you have to pay for. Upon setting up an account you receive your own personal web-address at which all the files on your web-server are accessible. Here are some web-hosts which you can use: (free)

After setting up an account you will receive details on how to upload files to the server. Using those details you will upload your web-pages to the server where they will then be accessible from your personal web-link.

Now in response to your second possible question.. To make your program accessible from the web for download, you will first want to zip or rar it up into an archive. You do this by first downloading WinRAR, afterward you make a new archive selecting the files you wish to be in that archive. Once the archive has been created, upload the .rar or .zip file to MediaFire. Once the upload process is complete MediaFire will provide you with the link to the file so you and other people can download the archive.

Let me know if I can assist you with anything else. If I need to explain anything mentioned above in more detail, simply let me know. If this answered your question(s), please rate the solution.
