Question about 2wire (1000-400108-001) Router

1 Answer

I bought a 2Wire gateway router / modem.

And hooked it up to a PC. Now trying to network 2 wireless laptops to use the printer. Both laptops can access the internet through the gateway easily. It says we need to purchase adapter cards for wireless wi-fi. Is this the only wireless way to print through the network?

    Are you trying to access a printer that is attached to another computer on your local network? or is the printer set up as a wireless on your net?

    If the printer is connected to another computer, you need to set that computer to share the printer.

    If it is a wireless printer (like a Lexmark4500) do you have the proper software on your laptops?

I have a 2Wire wireless modem and I a Vizio vbr231 wireless bluray player today but I can't get them to connect.... I have tried everything I can think of. Please help.


Ah, the 2wire modem...bain of my existence.
My personal recommendation is to turn off the wireless in the 2wire and get some generic router to hook up to it like a d-link or linksys or netgear...anything but the 2wire by itself!

You will need to check the wireless settings of the router
is there any computer connected to the router ?
If yes then you can open the router set up page on that computer.
Router set up page is the page where you can check all the wireless settings of the router.
once you get all the wireless settings of the router you can try to connect to the wireless network on the samsung TV

Home Network sharing issues using 2wire wireless modem


Did you manually assign the IP address to your shared devices? If so, the Linksys and the 2wire have different IP schemes.

2wire Gateway IP address:
192.168.1.254
255.255.255.0

Do an ipconfig /all on your computer and compare it to the ip scheme on your devices.

run the telephone line from your modem into the wall jack. From the modem connect a network cable (cat5) into the back ( via the uplink port) of your linksys router . Your router can now route the IP from the modem.

Wireless connection to the 2 Wire modem


Hi

Most of the 2wire gateways have the WEP key or the encryption code on the bottom of it. It would a 10 digit Number of a Five Character one within square brackets.
Other wise you can go to the gateway page by accessing http://192.168.1.1 on another system which is already going online using the gateway or wired to it and in the gateway page under wireless you would find the WEP key incase the default key on the bottom of the 2wire does not work.

Do reply incase this has resolved your issue or you need more help.

Thank you

Connecting 2wire router with desktop pc and laptop


hi! try to check the settings on your 2wire modem, you can do this by going to gateway.2wire.net, run the system setup wizard, when you get to the ppp authentication page, check the username & password on it, it should be the one that you setup for your ISP account. as for the wireless on the desktop, it depends on the brand of the wireless adapter, be sure you have installed the drivers for this adapter. you may need to go to the client utility manager or the wireless adapter shortcut/icon on your computer screen then configure it to "see" the 2wire network. make sure wireless encryption is turned on in the 2wire modem's MDC, you can do this by going to homeportal/management, or go to gateway.2wire.net/mdc.

Lost Ethernet and Wireless Connections in Modem


I've not used one of these 2wire boxes before, but I believe the default router's address is 192.168.0.1. Try this instead of gateway.2wire.net to see if you can gain access to the router. This is just the starting point, but see if it works.

Here's a link to, what I believe is, the router's manual.

Before you rate this please let me try to help some more. This could be a multi step process...
