You need to access the router's setup page to get the network key. enter http://192.168.1.254 on the address bar of your web browser. you will be prompted with the router's screen. look for the wireless settings and locate the wireless security and it will prompt you for the network key.

hope this'll help you

I was trying to manually the router up as wireless.


Hi,

If you want to connect to the router wirelessly you need to know the SSID or the Name of the Router (Nework Name) and the Network Key or Wep Key. The Default Wep Key is the 10 digit key located on the bottom sticker of the router. It is near the Bar Code. You can also personalize the Network Key by simly accessing the router. I've listed the steps on how to access the router incase the Network Key on the sticker is not working.



  • Open a Web browser and type http://gateway.2wire.net or http://192.168.1.254; the 2Wire Home page opens.
  • Click the Home Networking tab at the top of the 2Wire Home page.
  • Click on Wireless Settings. then click EDIT SETTINGS located on the right panel.
  • Here you will be able to fine the setting for your wireless connection
  • You can change the SSID, Wireless Channel, Wireless Security, and Network Key
  • Connect to your SSID by clicking on START then click on Connect To, Select your SSID then it will ask you for your Network Key. Type the Network Key then hit Connect
Rate me if this helps so i can help others

Can't connect new laptop to internet through wireless


Hi...if you mean the network key, the key Windows asks for when you try to connect to a secured network, you can find this within your router settings.
As this is a 2wire model, you might also find it on a label on the router - it depends if you changed the default settings.

Please visit this page for help:
http://support.2wire.com/?page=view&article=60

- it will show you where the default network key is on the label, or if you have changed it, how to login to your router and to find it in your settings (see screenshot at base of page - your network key will just be labelled 'key'.....)

The 2wire is setup with a default network key. Change the network key on the 2wire to another key or type in what you think the default network key is on the 2wire.

Can i download the software for setting up my modem?


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

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.

Problems setting up 2 wire router


ok, if you can log into the router at all, you should be able to go to home network, and halfway down will be the wireless configuration.

assuming it's set to default wireless security, there should be a network key writtten on a sticker on the bottom of the router:  You'll need to enter that code in windows vista before it will allow you to connect wirelessly.
