Most likely there is a problem with your pc, try turning off your wireless card wait 30 sec. and then turn it back on if it gives you a valid ip which should be a 192.168.... number than there is nothing wrong with the connection, if you are using a windows xp go to start and then run type in services.msc click ok maximize the box scroll down to the bottom you should see wireless zero config, right click choose properties click stop if the service is started click start if it is not, if it says the service is started then click stop and then click start again, then click ok restart the pc if it is vista you are using you will go to your start button->all progrms->accessories->run and then follow the instructions above, if that does not work go back to run (for xp) and type in cmd (for vista right clck on command prompt under accessories and choose run as admin) then in the black cmd box that pops up type in netsh int ip reset resetlog.txt wait and then type in netsh winsock reset restart the pc and attempt to surf , if it is still not letting you contact the pc manufacturer.

When connecting 2wire wireless dsl light and internet light both stay red, unless i remove the dsl line from the dual filter then light turns green, but either way my Lap top does not respond and says no...


It's possible that the filter could be defective, and it's possible that the telephone line could be interfering with the dsl or signal. Once you have established a good connection, and you now have a green dsl light, you can update the username and password by launching into your modem with the following ip address: 192.168.1.254. Type this on the address bar of your internet explorer. Once you're inside the modem, click on Broadband Link and click Advanced Settings. Update the username and password that which could be you're email address with AT&T and Network password which is provided by your ISP as well. That should get you connected .

What steps do I take to configure my 2wire 2701 hg-b to connect directly by ethernet cable to my Directv HD DVR and pick up the dsl signal being transmitted by my primary westell router? Both are wireless...


Connect the cable at both ends and do a red button (inside card door) reset of the DVR. To test the connection, do thus: Menu -> .....setup -> system setup -> network setup -> test connection. If it shows not connected then "reset defaults" and run "connect now"
As a basic security feature the ATT DSL 2Wire 2701HG-B router/gateway requires you to enter its pre-assigned WEP key to connect beyond the unit itself and then to the internet. Since the Direct TV DVR HD24D only does a basic connection without having a place to enter the 2701HG-B WEP key it never actually reaches the internet.
The 2Wire 2701HG-B has the ability for one attached unit to "pass through" its firewall and internal security settings using a so called "DMZplus" mode. I set the HR24D DVR to such a mode within the 2Wire unit and the DVR connected with the internet flawlessly.

are you on windows XP, Vista, MAC ???

you start out by seeing if you can ping the 2wire. The ip address you ping from a command prompt is the 2wire's gateway, 192.168.1.254

(you can get to the command prompt by clicking start, then click run, and type cmd and click ok on windows XP)
(on vista, you just click start and type cmd right above it where it says start search and hit enter on your keyboard)
(MAC's have a ping utility located by clicking on the harddrive, applications, network, network utility, and then the ping tab)

a little black window pops open, thats your command prompt

type ping 192.168.1.254 and hit enter on your keyboard

if you dont get replies, then your computer doesn't see the 2wire.

call tech support at 877-722-3755 24/7 for further support if required. We can make sure you nic is config properly, working properly, your not being blocked by a firewall, etc.

2WIRE wireless router/DSL from AT&T


unless this is a wireless enabled or lan RJ45 connectable printer you cannot, the pc that the printer is connected to must be on at the time of the printing.

Wireless printers have their own arial and allocated ip address, Lan RJ45 connective printers can be connected to the router.

CAN A 2WIRE DSL ROUTER WORK WITH A CABLE INTERNET CONEECTION


The 2wire dsl modem/router cannot be use with a another cable modem , since this 2wire device is also a modem/router and its made for the DSL conenction that's why it wont work with Cox cable, the best thing that you can do is to ask Cox to give a wireless modem/router like this 2wire so you can still use the wireless connection of your computer..

Hope that helps..........

2WIRE 2701 router


You must log on to the browser interface of the router (usually for 2wire they use 192.168.1.254) run the set up wizard it will come to a screen which asks for a key code, this key code is provided by your ISP, you can try one of these and see if it works
if you have a PPPOE connection (you have a user name and password to log on to the internet with use this one.

5225-26Q4-2262-22AS-B28F

if it is not PPPOE use this

5225-26P4-6262-22AS-B2E7

to manually configure the router use this

5225-2374-WG62-22AS-BJ7P

If these do not work call your internet provider and ask them for the key code.

after that you should be all set.
