    If you connect your computer, wired into the modem, do you have Internet access?

I had AT&T internet service with the 2-Wire wireless router (combined modem and router). You probably might have been given an installation CD but that often does not work well. You should be able to interface directly with the modem or router with your web browser possibly (http://gateway.2wire.net), and see the status of the connection, although to talk to these devices you must put in a username (usually "admin") and a password to enter the interface.

Your best bet is to actually call the technical support for the Internet service. Look on the AT&T paperwork you go with the modem or modem+router or any billing statement that show the possibly 877 number for HighSpeed Internet technical support. They will walk you through step-by-step until you get your connection; listen carefully to the often heavily accented voice. It usually never fails.

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.

Hi i have a 2wire gateway 2701HG-B modem I used for AT&T DSL internet. I moved to a location where I cant get AT&T. Is it possible to use this modem with centurylink for internet?


Hello, if centurylink is a DSL service, than you can use it for internet. It appears that Centurylink is a DSL service depending upon which service you get from them. In that case, you can use it for their service.

Can I use AT&T 2WIRE 2701HG-B DSL to ant ISP?


look if u wish to go for verizon service,,they will provide u with a wireless modem as well,,but if u tell them that u hav a modem then they might configure this modem only,,both ATT and verizon are DSL service providers with PPPoE connections.the only thing u need is the username and passwrd from verizon which u have to setup on the first page of the 2wire setup page,,both the connections are dhcp based.so no other connection settings change required.But when u talk with verizon make sure u tell them of the 2wire modem

Moreover verizon has wireless broadband service which is actually a express card tat u have to put into your computer and u can go online anywhere u go within ur country{it works like a mobile phone}

best of luck,,keep me posted

I need to find the procedure for at&t 2wire DSL modem wireless connection. I lost the security code and password. The Serial N# is 140811022206 and another # is (2701HG-B) could be the model number. ...


Try going to http://Helpme.att.net your support site or try calling your Internet provided and asked them to create a new username and password for your wireless connection.

If your asking for the username and password that you set in the modem configuration page more likely you are going to reset it and call your Internet service provider for the default username and password for your 2wire modem configuration page.
