Question about 2wire 2700HG-B Router (2700HGB)

2wire 2700HGV cannot detect wireless Linksys IP camera WVC54GC

I recently upgraded my services and was provided with a 2wire router. The problem is that the 2Wire is unable to detect my Linksys IP camera wireless after installation. I was using a Linksys WRT54G router prior to the upgrade and it works just fine. I have contacted my ISP and was referred to the local vendor for 2Wire and was told that they cannot do anything about it! Do you have any suggestion? Thanks!

    The Linksys IP camera works fine with the 2Wire 2700HGV when its connected with cable but does not work when its detach(suppose to work wireless).

I have the same setup and I can tell its a pain. I chose pain over money, since I'm just a poor guy. I just assigned the Linksys IP camera the available IP address from the 2wire router along with the subnet and gateway, usually gateway.2wire.net. With a little bit of patience 2wire gave up and accepted the settings and even made the Linksys IP cam as a static IP in the address assignment. 2wire sucks, I can't wait to finish my contract with my ISP and go back to where I used to use my linksys router,

Purchase a different router and return the 2wire to the ISP explaining it is not compatible with your equipment at home. You may need to provide them with the new router's MAC address.

Wireless not working


remove wireless security as Linksys won't accept certain WEP keys

ping the device to determine that it is there. This often works and shows it is a Linksys setup problem. If can't even ping the device then you have another bigger problem.

Finally, move the camera to under 5 feet of the wireless access point and then Setup will work. After setup then you can move camera out further.

2wire 2700hg-b wired router wont allow setup of Linksys WAP54G access point


the ip address of the 2wire router might be different from the ip address being used by the wap54g (ip address is 192.168.1.245 by default) that's why it's not being detected.
you need to directly connect the wap54g to a computer and set the computer to use a static ip address (ex. 192.168.1.240) and run the cd that came with the wap54g. you need to set the ip address of the wap54g to the same segment being used by your router to make them see each other

hope this'll help you and just ask me if you have other concern

ciao!

Win98, Linksys USB Adapter, 2wire router... no internet


hi!
sorry if it took a while to get an answer to your question...

anyway, let's begin by ensuring that you have completed installing the drivers & software of your wireless adapter.

launch the linksys wireless program by clicking on the icon for the linksys on the system tray or generally, this can also be launched from the programs menu after clicking on the windows start button.

on the main screen for the linksys, there are 3 tabs: link information, site survey & profiles. select the profiles tab

on the profiles screen, click on the new button to create a new profile. name the profile with a customized ID & click ok.

under choose a net type, select infrastructure mode. enter the SSID (this is your customized ID created on the new profile) & click next.

under network setting select obtain an IP address automatically (DHCP) & click on next.

under security settings choose "disabled" for WEP and leave the rest of the fields blank.

confirm the settings by clicking on yes.

note: you don't need a driver for your 2wire router, ensuring that the 2wire is already working with the ethernet connection.
also make sure you are able to see your devices on the mdc page, go to homeportal/management, local network> device list.

i assume that the mac g4 is able to connect wirelessly to this 2wire modem, am i correct?

please let me know if you have any issues... we'll work this one out, ok?

Linksys camera wvc54gc


make wsure that that port 1024 is assigned to the ip address of the camera under port forwarding, you can also try changing the remote port, try 5000 and above, if it still does not work try DMZ.
you can always check if port 1024 is open on your router by performing a port scan through the net, you can get a free port scanner on this site..

for the process on doing fort forwarding on your 2wire router check this link.

Linksys wrt54gs cant connect..


hi try this before you hit the reset botton. Check if Windows XP firewall or 3rd party firewall are blocking the pings, and temporarily disable them just to be sure. The WRT54GS has a feature called "AP Isolation", It's on the "Wireless -> Advanced Settings" page. You won't need it for home use so turn it off as well. Last thing, do a firmware upgrade. Hope it's helps Good luck.
