The light marked Ethernet is blinking very fast and im having trouble getting a lot of sites


Make sure all the cables are plugged all the way in... run a virus and spy ware scan... a good free spy scan is spybot... clean all extra files through the computer clean defray area found in program section... and maybe a defrag..... this is for the outside problem of a full computer that may have too many spy ware taking up your Internet and cookies filling your computer.... this could take some time but your computer will work a lot faster

Red power light, green wireless light, no internet access. Have done the reset and the power off. Nothing works.


I had the same problem on the Gateway 2701HG-B supplied from ATT. From searching the web, I learned these variety of modems apparently have an expiration date on the power cord at abotu 18 mos to 2 years. Mine is almost exactly at 2 yrs.

I replaced the power cord and now it works fine. You can order the OEM replacement from att e-store or try Radio Shack for a universal cord.

I've got the same issue, 2 wire claims that whrn the power light is red, the modem is bad and must be replaced. I would try and power the modem from another circuit before replacing. I am replacing mine today

I hv 2 wire modem bought from my friend, I don't know how to reset user ID and password in this modem


you can try resetting the modem by picking a small pin and pocking in behund the modem which states "reset"
Or if you can access the gateway you can reset it from there.
to access gateway in case type in your browser -- > http://gateway.2wire.net/mdc - <-- you will be prompted to enter password . The default password is 2wire . Once you entered in , scroll down to Troubleshooting which will be on your left
, search for resets <--- Click on it, it will direct you to a page where you can reboot system and stuffs.. Click on the button RESET beside factory defaults. Your modem will be reset to factory default, your power light will change orange and be normal back for about 10 secs ... When everything has come back to normal, you can then continue to enter your user id and password to log in internet.Or alternatively u can Go to http://gateway.2wire.net/setup <--- and configure your modem from there with a step by step guide :)

THANKS
