    thanks. the router works, but when we have more than 4 computers on at the same time it drops sync quite often. its frustrating.

  • lefty1962 Nov 17, 2008

    the issue is it drops sync when there are 4 wireless devices connecting at the same time. We never had this problem with cable. Im about ready to cancel at&t. its almost unusable.

You can connect up to 253 pc's 4 direct the rest via wireless.Have you tried surfing into the modem's interface if not the number is 192.168.1.254, enter this in your address bar of your web browser, once there click on run system setup wizard at the bottom right go through it once you get to the part where it asks for the username and password make sure they are your email address that you have with at&t if not enter them, if you dont remember call at&t tech support 888-321-2375 ask for it and they will provide.

I have an at&t 2wire 2701hg-b but i dont have at&t internet i have charter and i am not able to figure out how to get my internet to work with this router please help


att 2 wire is a Adsl Modem (Requires a telephone line jack to get the signals) but charter communication is a cable internet service (not DSL) , Requires a TV cable service for internet .
These two jacks differs and there working differs ..
Means : Att works with the username and password type of authentication but charter requires the MAC address of modem for authentication .
Therefore for a cable internet 2wire 2701hg-b modem cant be used . But yes in case charters has username and password authentication and works with the telephone jack in house then its possible to use the same modem.

Drops connection once or twice a day.


Unplug the the direct cable/dsl modem that the router is connected to and the wireless router for aprox. 1 minute. Plug in the modem, allow the modem to reset and power recycle. Once the modem has reset completely,connect the modem to the wireless router. This should re sync the devices and resolve your issue.

Cannot sync with my 7Mb adsl


quite often, if the router works in other houses, contact the telephone LINE company to see if there is a problem there. Alhough tiscali aren't always very helpful, ask them to do a line test and see if there is a problem with the signal to noise ratio on the line

Router seems to drop connection frequently


What a static ip is, is the ip address that the router automatically assigns to other equipment. (computers, xbox, ect.) Find D-links customer support line for help.

you have the DSL filters plugged into all your telephones, but NOT plugged into the DSL modem?

is the DSL modem configured to automatically connect using your username and password?

have you tried using a different phone cable, or plugging into a different phone jack?

Dropping internet connection


Where is your exact location?  You listed ATT DSL so I assume you have ATT DSL as your provider is this right?

I had them for years and I had the same problem.  But its not your setup or your equipment, it is your service provider. You may be on the fringe area of the line signal.  Any drop of power in the line which is already low voltage will cause it to drop out.  The more customers using it the slower it will go.

All you can do is this:

1. check all the house phone lines for aging. If old replace the lines because they cause noise in the lines which degrades the DSL signal.
2. Check the connections at the phone box for signs of corrosion.  Clean the contacts and wiring and reconnect.
3. Make sure you have filters on "ALL" your phones.

4. AFTER you do this( you have eliminated any issues with your equipment)  then contact your service provider and tell them you are getting dropped connections daily.  They should send some one out within a few days to check the signal strength.  They also can check it while you are on the phone with them but not as effectively as them coming out.

Good luck

Ok right I love these issues. Here we go!! First I want you to determine if this is a no sync issue or if this is a no route issue. Know this is the difference between working with Verizon or working with Verizon On-Line. If you have a sync issue which means the DSL light is off or blinking, this would be a Verizon proper issue and is easy to have fixed, however if the DSL light is on and the internet light is off this means that you have not received a PPPoE derived address and thus while you have DSL (Digital Subcriber Line) sync you do not have connectivity to a gateway router to route you to the Internet. I want you to log into you DSL modem (http://192.168.1.1) then using your login ID and Password the one you configured for the Router not Internet access. And the go to the screen that show your DSL connectivity see if it is up or down *Remember DSL refers to the layer 1 connectivity, and PPPOE refers to the layer 2 connectivity". If the DSL light is on this meaans that you have to call verizon and say "My DSL light is on, but I am not getting an IP address which means my layer 1 connectivity is working, but my layer 2 PPPOE connectivity did not provide the platform for my layer 3 level to be built". so this now becomes a task of troubleshooting the layer 2 systems (PPPOE server, and IP Address delivery systems, and Redback SMS). Instead of a half hour of "is your modem plugged in". If your DSL light is off then your layer 1 systems are not working this could be anything from your modem to the ASAM ( ATM Subscriber Access Multiplexer ) system or DSLAM (Digital subscriber Line Access Multiplexer). In any case if the DSL light is off they just have to figure out why. This can be done at the central office by disconnceting your cable and pair and trying to sync up at the vertical shelf (Ca/Pr) or at the split bank. If they sync up the problem is outside, if they do not sync up the problem is inside the CO either at the Split bank or the DSL OE block. If the problem is in the CO they will fine and fix it. If the problem is outside, what you can do to expedite things is to take your DSL modem to the NID (Network Interface device) and connect to the phone line that has DSL on it and try to sync up there. If you can sync up the problem is inside of your house, if you can not sync up the problem is outside of your house prior to the NID and thus is verizon's responsibility. I hope this helps.
