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.
Ensure that your AT&T DSL
self-installation kit is complete. At minimum, it should contain a DSL
modem, an AC adapter, an Ethernet cable, a telephone cable, several
telephone filters and an installation CD.
Install the telephone filters on each telephone jack that you
have a phone plugged into. Install a dual phone adapter on the jack
closest to your computer if you have an answering or fax machine,
telephone or analog modem in the same room. Then plug your telephone
equipment into the filters. Connect the telephone cable that was
provided with your installation kit into an unfiltered telephone jack.
Insert the installation CD into your CD-ROM drive. If the
installation program does not start automatically, click Start > Run
> and browse to the CD-ROM drive directory to find the installation
Connect the telephone cable that is attached to the
unfiltered wall jack to the back of the DSL modem. Connect the Ethernet
cable to the back of the modem and to the Ethernet network interface
card port on the back of your computer. Connect the AC adapter to the
back of the modem and plug it into an electrical outlet. Power the modem
Check the modem lights. There should be at least two lights
lit. These will have labels such as "Power" and "Ethernet." However,
these labels may differ depending on the model of modem you received in
your installation kit.
Complete the software installation. Enter your chosen
username and password when prompted. Check your modem to see if the
light labeled "DSL" or "Internet" is lit. Open a web browser window to
see if your DSL service has been successfully installed.
1 Plug the Ethernet cable into the Internet port on your wall. If you do not have Internet ports installed in your home, connect a phone line adapter to a phone line jack. The adapter makes the phone line wider so Ethernet cables can connect to it. This does not block your phone from use.
2 Plug the other end of the Ethernet cable into the Internet port on the back side of the Netgear DSL modem.
3 Connect the Netgear DSL modem to a local power source. The power plug inserts into the modem via a small port on the rear of the modem.
4 Insert a second Ethernet cable into one of the numbered ports on the back of the modem. Run the cable to your computer and plug it into the Ethernet port on the computer.
5 Look on the back end of the DSL modem for an HTTP: address. Type this into your Internet browser's search bar. The Netgear DSL modem menu appears on the screen.
6 Select how many computers are to use the modem, if you are using it with other DSL modems and set up a password (the default username and password is "admin"). Click "OK" to initiate the changes you made to the menu. You can now use your Netgear DSL modem to connect to the Internet.
Connect ethernet lan cable to computer and router end. In router there is LAN port connect lan cable to that port and connect other end of that cable to your computer ethenet lan card. Then connect phone line jack to router's ADSL Port. Let me know if you need further assistance. Thanks for using FixYa.
??? A router will NOT replace your modem; the router won't work without the modem. If you're going to give advice, please make sure it is somewhat correct.
Okay. So first you need the telephone cord to go from the phone jack into the DSL port on your modem. Then you need the Ethernet cable that came with your modem (looks like a phone cord but much bigger) to go from the ethernet port in the back of the modem into the wan or internet port on the router. Verify that the DSL and internet lights are on on the modem.
For the rest of the setup, watch this . It will walk you step by step in connecting your PS3 to the wireless internet. Thanks and please take a moment to rate as fixya.
To start with please make sure it says router on it as the title says "Networking Hub". These are two different devices. If not return the Hub and purchase a Linksys Router then follow instructions below.
Assuming you have a router:
Before you begin unplug the power from the Cable or DSL Modem before you start as they will have to be powered on in a particular order I will discuss later.
Your cable or DSL modem will have a cable coming out of it that looks similar to a phone line except a little larger. The cable will say CAT5 or CAT6 or Ethernet on it.
On your Linksys Router there will be a ports/jack that you can plug the Cable into from your Cable/DSL Modem. You want to look for one labled "WAN" or "Internet". Plug it in then plug in the power to your Cable or DSL Modem. When the "Ready" light is on the modem, plug in the power cable to your router.
The next step is hooking it up to your computer. There will be anywhere from 1 to 8 more ports available on your Router that is number 1,2,3,4, etc. Plug another Ethernet Cable into any one of those ports. With the other end plug it into your PC or Laptop, there is only one port/jack on your computer that this plug will fit in. Power up your PC and voila, you should be on the Internet.
