Question about 2wire HomePortal 1800HG Router (1000400229000)
I just bought a new laptop that's running a Linux OS, and I'm having problems establishing an wireless connection with this modem. It detects the connection, but when the WPA or WEP keys are entered, the connection is still not established. Does this modem even support Linux?
If your linux is detecting the modem then it is supported in linux so now its just a matter of working out the communication details. Make sure the connection your trying to connect to is using WPA or WEP because they are two different types of protocols. I suggest WPA because it's a lot more secure. WEP can be cracked in 5 minutes. You may have to play around with the settings a little. If you don't know how to then write back and tell me what the name of your linux is and what protocol you want to use and I can help troubleshoot the problem. It could be that the connection is taking a long time and that you have the timeout set too short.
