Access the wireless ethernet client box without the setup CD

I misplaced my setup CD. Is there a way to access the wireless ethernet client without the setup CD. I am familiar with the DOS IPCONFIG command. Since the box is a bridge and you don't see the IP node when the wireless is disconnected. My ethernet linked to the bridge has IP address: I can ping it. But I don't know how to get the wireless ethernet client(bridge)'s UI. Please help. Thanks.

    Connecting the ethernet port of the wireless ethernet client(WEC/bridge) to the ethernet of the gateway router, the WEC will be able to get an IP address from the router so that you can login to

    reconfigure the wireless interface of the WEC.

SOURCE: 2wire 1800hg random no internet/random access, repair/wait fixes

It seems that you said your computer gets the ip address from your router,, which means thru DHCP of the router but if you look at the DHCP settings of your wireless card inside your computer ---the DHCP is OFF -- check your ipconfig/all command as shown in your problem too,,, your wless card does not accept the new IP which comes from your router --as DHCP is OFF on your wless card and sticks with the old ip address whereas the router maintains a new ip for your computer in its table and a mismatch occurs and you loose the internet connection ,,,,thats why repair works and then again the IP changes in the router for your computer and your computer's wless card lags behind and use the old ip adress ..... DHCP--- IS DYNAMIC , WHICH MEANS IT RENEWS THE IP address after some time and you computer gets stuck to the old one ,,, hence mismatch. "you make the DHCP -ON on your wless card too. it will be fine."

SOURCE: I need help installing my 2wire wireless adapter card.

I used this one:

This document describes the procedure to install driver for the 2Wire Wireless USB Adapter under Microsoft Windows, and to run a wireless configuration program to configure your 2Wire Wireless USB Adapter to work with a 2Wire HomePortal or OfficePortal wireless gateway. These drivers work under Microsoft Windows 98SE, ME, 2000, and XP.

STEP 1 - Driver Installation
1. Make sure your 2Wire Wireless USB Adapter has not been connected to your computer USB port.
2. Double-click on the file to run WinZip Self-Extractor. The driver installation files will be placed in your hard disk in the C:\TWWUSB_TEMP directory
3. Connect your 2Wire Wireless USB Adapter to an available USB port in your computer. Windows Found New Hardware Wizard will startup.
4. Select the option to search for driver in specific location. Specify C:\TWWGUSB_TEMP as the location of driver.
5. Follow on-screen instruction to finish driver installation.

STEP 2 - Wireless Configuration
1. Run the program WirelessCfg.exe in the directory C:\TWWGUSB_TEMP. You can do so by clicking on the Windows Start button and select Run. The Windows Start button is typically at the lower left corner of the screen. Type in C:\TWWGUSB_TEMP\WirelessCfg.exe to launch the program.
2. Follow on-screen instruction to configure your wireless setting. Enter the serial number and encryption key as they are printed on the bottom of your 2Wire wireless gateway.

SOURCE: can`t get full access to the net on TalkTalk with 2wire 2700hgb

You did everything correctly so far, and your 2wire is getting the signal and info it needs. The unable to contact config server error is not a problem, as thats just 2wires update server, which wont hurt anything if not found. The password defaults back to 8 because of security issues, its still the same one you entered, so thats fine also. Now one thing you should try is the only thing different about the 2 routers. The 2wire has a built in firewall in it, try turning it off for your computer. Click on the firewall tab, then firewall settings. Select your computer and put the dot in DMZ mode and save it. Then restart the pc and see if it works after that. Other then that it could be a problem with the 2wire itself, since you are authenticating fine with your Internet provider.

How to find your MAC address using MS-DOS

The MAC address is the physical address your computer's Ethernet card or network interface card (NIC) uses to identify itself to other computers and devices on your network. There are different ways to find your Ethernet card's MAC address, depending on what operating system and programs you have installed. Since most Windows-based computers have access to the MS-DOS command prompt, using DOS to find your MAC address is one standard way to do it.

There are a couple of different tools you can use in MS-DOS to find your MAC address. All of them requiring opening a command prompt window, which you can do by typing "cmd" into the Run bar on the Start menu (or in Windows Vista or 7, you can type it into the Search bar instead).

- Getmac

Getmac is a utility that is included on Windows Vista computers and on newer Windows XP systems. Typing "getmac" by itself on a command line will return the MAC addresses of any NICs that you have installed in your computer. (If you have an Ethernet NIC and a wireless NIC, for example, Getmac will list the MAC addresses for both of them.)

- Ipconfig

Ipconfig is a command that will display your IP address if you are currently connected to a network. However, by adding the "/all" switch to it, you can also see your MAC address, as well as many other configuration settings. Type "ipconfig /all" and look for the line labeled "Physical Address." If you have more than one NIC, the MAC address for each NIC will be displayed separately.

When typing into my address bar I get a not connected error screen when I am connected. Trying to find the wep key to set up an xbox

On your computer, open a command prompt (Start>Run> type in CMD), and the type in "ipconfig" without the quotes. This will give you the IP address and the default gateway. Type the IP of the default gateway into your internet browser (it may not be If it still doesn't work, try putting in the address bar. If that still doesn't work, then make sure you're connected to the router with an ethernet cable and not over wireless. Some routers do not allow wireless client computers to access the configuration page. Good luck.

How to connect to net via wire and wifi

I'm assuming Windows is the OS. After disconnecting from one access method but before connecting with another (modem to wifi or network wire, etc. the IP address on the notebook will likely not be acceptable to the new connection) open a DOS or Command "Box" or "Window" (go to Start --> Run --> type the word "cmd" or "command" without quotes and then click ok. At the prompt, (without the quotes) type: "ipconfig /release" (You can see all the variables for the ipconfig command by typing "ipconfig /?")

Establish a new connection via hardwire network or wifi and allow the PC obtain a new IP address as normal. If unable to access internet sites, you can try to forcing a new IP address by opening the DOS box again and type "ipconfig /renew" This should cause the machine to get a new IP address. The "ipconfig" commands will probably not force a modem connection to get a new IP address (I haven't run modems for a long time - so I'm not familiar with their procedure of obtaining an IP address)

I have just got a new vista laptop and cant get a connection without a lead.

Does your laptop have built-in wireless?

If so it has an on/off switch so you can use it in planes. Have you turned it on?

Using the following link for instructions

execute the command (one space before /)

ipconfig /all

Record the following
  • IP Address
  • Subnet Mask ---------(wired should match wireless)
  • Default Gateway ----(wired should match wireless)
  • DNS Address(es) ---(wired should match wireless)

Using the same command window then this command (replace the with the default gateway from ipconfig if different)


this should display 4 messages with elapsed times if it works and 4 timeout messages if it fails.

Once when wired and once when wireless
-- from what you have said the wired answers should be right
------ we are going to compare to wireless to look for problems
-- tell me the differences between the two displays
-- you will need to write down the results from each pass

If the switch issue does not solve the problem the above information should allow me to determine what is wrong.
