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

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.

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.

Sorry, we are experiencing temporary technical problem, please check back later.

networks sites with malfunctions are reported by the technical experts during time until a resolvment was attained. Normally, a anouncement is sent to customer email accounts by persons that requested personal contact notification. Alternately, an attempt to logon to facebook would display momentary unavailable messages until another time when was resolved.

Important notice.

It is possible that facebook may have encountered malfunction least yet discovered by technical experts. usually the first persons to notice sends emails to the host experts to rediscover to regular functionality.

The possibilities of having it return to you will soar if you follow the following steps:

1. Call warranty support thru this number - 1 877 453 6686
2. Report that the machine is stolen. If you could provide the serial number, it will be great.

DeLonghi Coffee maker type CCF212T leaks terribly, We tryed

Thank you for offering me a "Premium Assistance Plan" I'm sure you have an amazing cadre of brilliant  experts, that could resolve my problem for a nominal fee, which I'm sure is worth every penny. But I was hoping for a good old fashioned customer service representative, that could either rectify my problem with a quick fix or possibly a newly redesigned basket. The problem, I believe, is an inherent flaw, caused by a design process, that uses common subcomponents in multiple models. Which is great from an efficient engineering/tooling standpoint, but they just missed the boat here. I've figured out a solution to my problem. I'm no longer going to buy any DeLonghi products, and in the future I will take recommendations from Consumer Reports with a grain of salt. To further alleviate my frustration I'm going to place this coffeemaker in the driveway and run it over on my way to the "Big Box" to puchase another Mr. Coffee for twenty bucks, cause I know they work. I'm sorry if this sounds bitter, but it's the coffee's fault.
