Unless you've installed a wireless card in your old desktop you will never connect wirelessly.
Desktops don't come equiped to do wireless communications. And an "old Gateway" surely does not have those capabilities.
You have 2 options
1) Purchase and install a wireless card for your Gateway
2) Use it hard wired... Purchase an "Ethernet cable" of sufficient length and plug it into one of the open ports on the back of the router and into the only place it will fit on the back of your computer
First connect your router to computer with ethernet cable. Then you can access it with following link. http://192.168.1.1 or http://192.168.0.1 If you cant access it with above link then reset it to defaults. For that check in back panel of router you find reset button press it for 10 seconds so all settings goes to defaults. type user as "admin" and password as "admin" or blank or "password" Then you can see configuration page for router. Enable dhcp if you want to get ip from router. check wireless settings . Check wep password if it is enable for security. Let me know if you need further assistance. Thanks.
Pleaase check if the PC connects when plugged directly to the DSL or cable connection whatever you have without the router in between. That would ensure the functionality of the ethernet card on the other pc.
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.
Ethernet connection is a LAN or a CAT cable One end of that cable will connect at the back of ur router box that u will have with u or u will get it from ur ISP . and the other end of that cable goes to the back of ur pc in the jack which says LAN or try to plug it in any socket which fits properly. u will a light that will start flashing at the back of ur back when u plug that cable in to check whether u system supports ethernet connection or not 1. right click on my computer 2. goto properties 3. goto hardware 4. goto device manager 5. u will find network adapters there click on the plus sign on the left side of network adapters plus sign will change to minus under network adapters look for an ethernet adapter or network controller or 10/100 or 10/1000 fast ethernet NIC ( network interface card ) if u have one , then ur pc supports ethernet connection U just have to connect the ethernet cabel to ur router box and at the back of ur pc and u just have to open internet explorer and ur internet would start working... if u dont have ethernet cable with u or ur system does not have an ether net socket in ur system , u can goto any computer shop and get an ethernet cable and a socket for ur system If u dont want to do that , u can go for a USB cable connection with ur pc or a wireless connection.... reply back if u face any further problems
