I bought this modem off of ebay in hopes of using it as a modem/router combination unit. After MANY hours of tech support from Netgear and my ISP, I have determined that the wireless portion of this device is not working properly. The modem aspect is fine.
Is there a way to disable the wireless signal that my home computers are still detecting from this device? My router that I am now using (a Linksys) is not working at full capacity and someone has mentioned to me that some sort of interference from my Netgear router could be the cause of this?? Personally, I don't know. I'm just looking for some suggestions. Thanks.

If you have a separate modem and router turn both off and reboot only modem till all lights up the reboot router till all lights up in that order sounds simple communication problem between router and modem. If router modem combo unit disconnect either dsl or cable from router/modem leave diconnected for a short time then reconnect and reboot till all lights up. Hope this helps.
Most of the modems that Verizon (depending which market you are in) techs are using are combination modem/routers, so you may not need to use your Linksys wireless router anymore. Typically the default SSID (wireless signal name) and password (if there is one) is printed on a label attached to the router. You can use this default info if you'd like or reconfigure the router using the following steps.
Log into the wireless router either by a computer that successfully connects wirelessly or by physically connecting with an ethernet cable. Once connected, log into the router by open a web browser (Internet Explorer, MozillaFirefox, Google Chrome, Apple Safari), and typing the router's address (usually 192.168.1.1 or 192.168.0.1) into the Address (or URL) line. The default username and password is usually "admin" & "admin" or "admin" & "password". Once successfully logged in, look for a tab or link that says "Wireless" or "Security". You'll be able to change whether security is enabled or disabled, and the password associated with it. Your security options are WEP or WPA (or WPA-PSK). WPA-PSK is the most secure, but WEP is also an acceptable choice. Select the security option of your choice and either enter text into the passphrase generator or choose your own password and type it into one of the security key text fields. If you use a password that is not a plain english combination of letters and numbers, be sure to write it down so that you can enter it as needed on other wireless devices that need to access your router (ie-pda phones, game consoles, laptops, desktops, etc). Be sure to save changes so that the security settings and password is saved. Let me know how you make out.
all wireless devices must be allowed in the router by either MAC address or by name. This is accomplished by logging into to the router and setting up the device in with the wireless setup feature in your router. The router will not allow the device to connect without permissions.
If you connect the computer directly to the modem, does it work? If that works then the modem is working. Now connect the computer to the router and the modem to the router. You will need to open the set up page of the router to check the settings of the router. You can set up the router without the CD also. It is very easy.

Your sister was accessing the wireless access point at school which is connected to the Internet/WEB access via a router and the school's broadband service provider.
For you to access the Internet using your wireless adapter on your laptop, you need your own wireless access point and connect it to a broadband ADSL or cable modem and then connect it to an Internet Service Provider. Some Internet Service Providers (cable and ADSL) can supply a combined modem/router/wireless Access point.
If you already have a broadband modem all you need is a wireless access point/router. You only need to configure the wireless access point and your wireless adapter so they will communicate with each other. Folow the instructions in the manuals.
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.
First step of solution would be performing Reset. Press and hold the reset button about 30 seconds and release. Check again. If you need customized settings just type 192.168.2.1 in your browser and get into settings.
If issue persist please post for further troubleshooting.
Your device is a combination Cabal Modem and Wireless Router with a fairly limited security screening profile. While it is doubtful that the problem is the OS on your notebook, it could easily be the wireless network card in your notebook that is the problem.
In this instance replacing the unit is probably the best way to go, as there are much better units available for much less money and in addition you will have full access to the configuration of the router and its security and connection settings.
To replace this device with one new device simply be certain to get a Cabal Router/Modem with Wireless Access.
