2Wire router keeps dropping connection

Each time around this time of year my broadband connection starts dropping the router then reboots and alls ok for an indefinite time but then it drops again I have changed all cables & have used another 2wire router but that does the same so I'm think I'm loosing bandwith or noise from my isp but after having this out with them numerous times in the past with no luck resolving the issue what is the best option here?

Cheers Bill

    Hi they have run tests for this issue on a number of occasions and stated all's fine and sent out a replacement router I've had 6 LOL In the last hour the system has dropped around 20 times intact as I'm writing this the router has just reset this is actually the 2nd router today and and new leads.

    They have increesed the gain in the past to no avail.

    If it is the router then this is an issue with all this model since as I said they have sent 6 out with all the same problem.

    Looks like it's gonna have to be a total new / different router and a call to the ISP for the settup info.

    Cheers Bill

Enter you ISP address in the search bar to get to your 2 wire settings. Go to home network and then settings. Then click on modem settings. Change it from 11g to 11b. Had this problem for 2 years. No problems since.

    This worked for me. Put your ISP address in the search bar to get to your 2 wire settings....then to home network...and then to modem settings. Change to 11b. I had problems for 2 years and non since.

Its the heat. the heat does something to the lines, causing the connection to drop.

Hi nothing close apart from comp. This is a router/modem I have had this issue on other systems to.

It just seems that this usually happens around this time of year this???? don't know if it's just a coincidence??? Chances are this will sort itself out again but it's just so strange and frustrating.

Regards

If you try to change the router and getting same problem, i think you need to isolate it first without the router because this is not the issue, by the way did you ask your ISP to run a line test? what is the result? have you try to change the modem? my first suspect is the modem.

    Hi,
    im sorry i assume before that your using a separate device modem--->router--->yourpc
    can you clear things out to me, are you using a router modem?
    so your connection is router.modem--->your computer ?

    have you tried to use a different computer to make sure theres no problem on your end?

    make sure also there's no device close to your modem or router that will interfere it's signal like example speaker,microwaveoven,power supply.

No broadband connection


If your Not getting a SOLID dsl light this means that your user sessions are not being varified via the Radius servers at the ISP. Before giving up all hope and just abandoning the poor thing Just make sure that the Username and Password you are using for the Sync at the ISP are correct. Even ask the ISP for a Test account If this still doesnt work Try another router Say your friends one in your House if that Does work then it is Most proberly a Router Fault if it doesnt Then get on to your ISP and give them an Ear full ok.

2wire router


Turn everything off. Router, PC etc. all OFF. Then start the PC, wait 2 mins. Then plug in the power to the router. Then the cable into the PC. Then check fireware [Zone Alarm etc] to see if it is recognised as receiving data. Click on IE or Firefox.
If this fails, do it again Have a coffee break. Remember the cable connects to the broadband and it flows in and out without the dreadful instruction CDs given you.

Replaced my old 2wire 1800HG with a new one and can't connect it


hi!
first of all, let's try to make the broadband link light turn green. open any browser, go the modem's UI by typing gateway.2wire.net or homeportal/setup on the address bar, follow the onscreen instructions on running the system setup wizard. it should make the broadband link green now. for wireless connection, click on the airport icon, and select on the SSID or network name in the drop down menu. if ssid is not on the drop down menu, click on other. type the SSID in the network name field and wireless security is none. (SSID is the last 3 nos. of the SN)

2Wire 1701hg gateway- Broadband Access problem


hi! have you used this other identical 2wire modem before? if this other 2wire modem (is it the same 1701hg?) well you may need to configure the settings first. also 1000 series modems usually have 3 lights on it; power, broadband link, and local network. if these 3 lights are on, you may need to access the modem's user interface. assuming that all lights are green, on your computer directly attached to the 2wire, open up any browser, type in gateway.2wire.net. it will give you the network at a glance page. click on run system setup wizard, type in the system password. on the ppp authentication page, please check if it has your username & password (this is the one that you set up on your internet acct w/ your ISP), the next screen will establish a connection. (please tell me if you've got any error messages...)

2wire modem/router keeps rebooting


ANOTHER COMMON ISSUE: If your modem keeps restarting once the power LED turns solid green, the most likely cause is the power adaptor. Replace the power adaptor and all should be well again.

2wire not finding broadband connection


I have tried also in the past, to set up a connection with this make of router with an ISP other than the ISP that supplied it and i was not able to get it to connect as i think the firmware is set to only recognise certain ISP IP addresses or MAC settings.
