    Are you connecting through USB?

    If you are not and you are using ethernet (network cable) then you should be able to configure it through a web page and that should be explained in your manual. If you do not have your manual, I'm sure 2wire has manuals and software at their site.

The only time you really need software to set up the 2wire is if you are going to the use the USB ports on the back of the 2wire. The 1000 series have wireless capabilities. Since you have a new laptop, it should have wireless capabilities.By default your network name should be 2wireXXX and the XXX is the last three of your SN. The network key for the 2wire is the 10 digit number that is in brackets

Hope this helps you

Am i being thick? does each provider have their own type of router?? im trying to connect a d-link 615 using virgin, help please? havent got the disc for router and cant access 192.168.01 to download...


You need to connect your D-Link to a DSL or Cable modem. The ISP usually provides this modem and the configuration settings for the modem so you can connect to the Internet. To test your Internet connection connect a LAN cable from your computer to the modem and then open a browser. If you can coinnect to the Internet then you can then connect the D-Link to the modem and configure the D-Link for wireless settings so you can connect your computer/laptop to the Internet using a wireless connection.

Connect a LAN cable from the D-Link to your laptop/computer'sLAN port, open the browser on your laptop/computer and enter the D-Link'sconfiguration URL..
http://192.168.0.1
The default login = admin
The default PW = blank (just press Enter) You can now change the default password.
You can now configure the wireless settings. Now configure the wireless card in your computer/laptop withthe router's wireless settings.

I cant log on to internet


first you must have an ISP Internet Service provider contract which will provide you with a modem and leads you can choose either a dial up,usb,or an ethernet connection to connect to the internet or if you have a laptop you can choose a wireless usb modem which can work on a desktop aswell once you recieve the modem just insert the disk provided and follow the prompts to set up your new internet connection
during the setup process you will be asked for a password I suggest you make a log of all pass words used outside of your computer incase of memory lapses
check the password make sure its exactly how you provided to your ISP internet service provider make sure the Caps lock is on/off which ever applies to your ISP contract
check your computers settings ie: firewall also he might have a default internet setting
check the leads from the modem/router whether usb,ethernet make sure they are not bad/faulty and have secure connections and try different ports
click start control panel administrive tools computer management device manager scroll to network adapters + to expand any yellow ! ? or a red x will mean that the driver is corrupt and needs to be updated

hope this helps

FIrst of all if you are trying to install the program from the CD that is provided with the samsung mobile then do not use it.
Uninstall the program from the laptop/PC if you already installed it.

Download the Latest version from here PC SUITE

Click on the Software tab and then "Download" against the PC Studio.
Download and then install and make sure you do not connect the mobile to the PC before installing the full software.

once installed select from the phone

Menu--Settings--Phone Settings--PC Connections--select pc suite --save.

and then connect the mobile with the Data cable.

or

2nd Option

Try this:(if you don't want to install the PC studio)
Menu--Settings--Phone Settings--PC Connections--select Mass Storage and Save.
Now try to connect it.A window will pop up and ask you to use the following for opening up and you select the folder option.
If you don't see a pop up then you see it in my computer as removable disk.

P.S. you will only be able to use your micro SD card content with the 2nd option.

Good Luck.

No connection, cant install the software


You said that when you connect the computer to the modem, you get limited or no connectivity. make sure that your computer will be able to go online when you connect it the modem directly.
If your computer is able to go online through the modem
Then you need to connect the computer to the router ad the modem to the router.
open the set up page of the router and change the settings of the router according to the ISP.

The modem will not connect to the internet via USB (only ethernet


It sounds like you need to download a driver for the modem's usb connectivity. You can do this by "googleing" the make & model from the manufacturer's website.

Installing Sprint Smartview on Windows Vista --Dell laptop


Smartview is supposed to work with Vista. Did you right-click on the install file and run as administrator?

If you can not get it to work there is a work around.

First, download and install the BlackBerry Desktop Manager software. After installation, plug in your BlackBerry and start up the software for the first time. Open the Options -> Connection Settings… window and set the connection to USB. Plug in the BlackBerry, enter your password if applicable, and Vista will find the device and install a “standard modem”.
Open the Control Panel
Network and Internet
Connect to a network
Set up a connection or network
Set up a dial-up connection
Select Standard Modem
Dial-up phone number is #777
Connect.

Everything should work, some have reported faster speeds using this method over the Smartview program.

Internate connection on pc


I assume you are trying to use the Blackberry as a modem and connect to your computer to connect to the internet. It is possible. All you need is a data plan from your servcie provider and the desktop manager software. In case your CD that came with the device is unusable, you can freely download the software from your service provider's website. Once the software is downloaded, run it and connect your Blackberry to the computer and then set the modem settings as detailed in the link below:

I cant get an update for xbox live


first try resetting your connection, unplug your modem or router for 30 seconds and see if you get a connection. after that it would be a software issue. more likely its failing to update because you have NO internet signal. try also, re-configuring your network IP settings which is usually automatic- with no disk in or through the dashboard. if you can get into dashboard try manually putting these in.. but like i said try unplugging your modem for at least 30 seconds to update the IP. good news... if microsoft has to repair it theres a good chance youll get a brand new system though it might take a few weeks at least. is this with a brand new system?
