Question about 2wire HomePortal 1800HG Router (1000400229000)

2 Answers

Help Needed! I think this problem has been reported invarious places acroos the tinterweb but I can't find a solution, its possible i'm not technical enough to understand though. Having set up my router it works fine for a few minutes, then I lose ethernet and LAN connections. I don't think its a hardware issue as the power light remains green. Its the ethernet and LAN lights that go solid orange. Any help would be much appreciated as I'm getting fed up with having to turn the router off for approx 30 mins to get about 10 mins use out of it. Thanks in anticipation. T

Re: Help Needed!

My 1800HG was doing this - it was overheating. I took it out of its case and could get more time out of it, but I never fixed the problem and ended up buying a new one.

Re: Help Needed!

When you say you lose ethernet and lan, they are both the same thing. Lan light can show orange when the ethernet card is not 100mbps but only 10mbps if it's an old ethernet card. Check that your router is set to enable DHCP to give your pc an automatic ip address and go to the properties of your ethernet card and ensure it is set to obtain an ip adress automatically. Check that Bridge network is unticked or the above will not work. Also check that the Idle time is set to zero if it is in the setup as this may be disconnecting you if you are idle on the internet for a certain period of time. There is another way to set up a router manualy, some come back if this fails to keep the connection.

Hack a facebook account

Report Hackers to Facebook

According to the third article of the Safety section in Facebook's Statement of Rights and Responsibilities, willfully compromising a user's account on the social networking constitutes a violation of Facebook's user agreement.

Reporting such violations may be performed in a number of ways, depending on the situation. If either you or your friend's Facebook account has been hacked, file a report through Facebook's Help Center.

If you are aware of a specific user on Facebook who is engaged in hacking other accounts, file a report regarding his activity through his profile page.

Go to, type the email and password associated with your account in the corresponding text fields and press "Enter."

Click "Account" in the top menu bar and select "Help Center."

Click "Security" in the "Popular Topics" section.

Click "I Think My Account is Compromised" in the Account Security menu.

Click either of the two security questions, depending on your situation, and click "Secure it here."

Click "Secure Account" and click "Continue."

Complete each of the steps for securing your account, including changing your password, changing your email password, reviewing your changes and unlocking your account.

Click "Done" to complete the process.

The developers at Facebook receive a notification regarding your account being compromised.
Report Your Friend's Compromised Profile

Sign into Facebook, click "Account" in the top menu bar and select "Help Center."

Click the "Security" icon in the "Popular Topics" section.

Click "I Think My Friend's Account is Compromised" in the Account Security menu.

Click any of the three questions depending on your circumstances and click "File a Report."

Click your friend's full name, his birthday, the email associated with his account and a description of the situation in the corresponding text fields.

Click "Submit" to send the report to the developers at Facebook.

Report a Profile on Facebook

Log into Facebook, click the "Search" text field and type the name of the profile you want to report for hacking.

Scroll down and click "Report/Block This Person" in the left side bar.

Click "Unfriend" or "Block" depending on the situation and click "This Person is Bullying or Harassing Me," click the drop-down menu and select "Other."

Facebook does not offer an option in this drop-down menu that applies specifically to hacking, but selecting this option is the best fit for that form of violation.

Click the user's name at the top of the page, type a report regarding the account hacking in the text field and press "Enter."

The report is sent to the Facebook developers.

Practice your skills on a project.

Rewrite the program with subtle changes.
You should be able to gain access to a file, program or data base that is protected while remaining oblivious to others working on this project.

Submit your resumes to companies that need hackers.
Some choices are large companies, banks and government agencies but this list is not all inclusive.

Hack into the computer system of the company you work for after it hires you.

Using 1000SW, I get report of:- Connection Status DSL Signal: DSL found on Line 1 PPP Login: Login successful Internet Address: An Internet address was verified ISP Link: Domain Name Server...

When you get a 'cant connect to configuration server', dont worry about it, thats 2wire's configuration server. If you have a 1000sw, then you've been a customer for a long time and have been registered for years and dont need the configuration server. Both you and the 2wire have been configured for years. The 2wire is trying to reach the configuration server because you set it up again, im thinking you moved, changed phone lines, or changed service.

The 2wire configuration server is to set people's 2wire's up for the first time only, and even then it doesnt matter unless you call technical support, and then they can still help you by getting the serial number off the device when that happens years later.

Cannot connect iMac with DI-524 over wireless! Please help!

The most likely answer is that you have an access control list (MAC Address filtering list) set up on your router and have not added your Mac's MAC, also called your Airport ID to the list but there are other possible causes.
Double check that you do not need to add your MAC address to the list, that you did save changes when you removed security from your router and that your PC can still connect.
The hardest part of moving from PC to Mac is learning to trust your computer to do things for you, with Microsoft's OS's you don't just trust the automated set-up wizards because even in the rare circumstance that the wizard actually works you invariably have to finish the settings manually.
With your Mac the exact opposite is true, if you try to do everything manually it'll invariably mess things up, where as using the wizards and trusting the computer to manage things on it's own reaps obvious rewards.
If Airport set-up wizard is asking for a WEP key and leaving the field blank doesn't work you can be comfortably sure that the router has a key set up on it. (BTW: Always be mindful of the fact that WEP is pointless, even 128bit.) 
Check that your router has not been hijacked and that you have indeed removed the security from your router, is it possible that you have a WPA key set up on the router? Unlike WEP, WPA and especially WPA2 actually secure your network (in as much as is possible). 
Another major cause of connectivity issues for new Mac users is having Norton Internet security installed, for a PC user the idea of not having full-on paranoid security installed is anathema, the idea that your Mac's inbuilt firewall alone is plenty of protection (at time of writing) Other than that ClamXav antivirus will protect your Mac form any viruses that may appear in future. Norton Internet security for Mac is often pushed on buyers by stores that don't know any better, to be honest Norton Internet security for Mac is an awful lot of hassle and performance loss for little or no advantage.

Using a Mac is different to using a PC but once you have got used to using a Mac you will not be able to change back, once you have learned to trust your Mac to do things for you, you will find Windows (any version) to be painfully time consuming, unstable and fiddly to use.
Post back if you are still having problems. :)

Change from default

I am going to make some assumptions here first is that the hard drive was added to or replaced in your computer by a store or by a friend. Is it possible that the installer altered your network card configuration eliminating the encryption settings required to be set in your computer for your wireless adapter card to connect with the router in your home? If so I would suggest reinstalling encryption in both your wireless router and to your computer for its adapter card as you did initially to get them working. I find it annoying too when service personnel change my computer's settings and do not set them back to their previous settings when they have completed their work.

I hope this helps.

in my experience invariably it is the hardware at issue.. occasionally it is the driver(s) So uninstall the drivers, Obtain the latest.. install, configure ... Change any cables also, if all of that doesn't "fix it" then we are back to our original diagnosis of the "Hardware" problem.
