How can I install my new 2wire 1701hg wifi wireless dsl modem router without the installation CD? i lost the install cd

    My issue is this, briefly: I have a Dell PC. Up until a week ago it had Windows 2K, and 2wire wireless 802.11g talking to a 1701HG. This all was running fine.

    OS needed to be reinstalled, but reinstalled Windows 98 instead, as I have neither W2K CD, nor key. Long story. Machine is running much better. Now I realize I have no 2wire CD.

    I found the driver and installed it, at least I hope the correct one, as the OS recognizes it. I downloaded config software from 2wire site that looks it is correct, altough may be for XP.

    Am unable to configure the wireless adapter, as it sort of hangs in the config process. Gives message "Auto Association to the Access Point failed"

    I have put many URLs into the browser, including, and have come up with zilch. Will this even run on W2K.

    Any input would be appreciated.

1. pull up browser(ie internet explorer)
2. type or http://homeportal/setup in the address field. (click on i forgot my password if you forget it. then if you can't figure out the pw with the hint provided then go click on " i still forgot my password". you can then reset the system password)
3. setup your 2wire 1701 page, double check if key codes are there. it should be 522P-22P4-6262-22AT-F2NV
4. In time zone page, just choose the one then click next.
5. setup connection info page, just make sure the username is your primary email address with your ISP and also the correct password. fill out the username and password and confirm password fields ONLY then click next. And you're DONE!

you just have to wait till it successfully establish a connection.
if you're still having problem after doing that maybe twice or more then i suggest giving your ISP a call. they can also send you the 2wire cd if your ISP supports 2wire modem. AT&T does.
If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it.
Thanks, Joe

How can i connect in dsl modem with laptop?

If your laptop has no built in wifi, a USB receiver can access nearby (wireless capable) routers or router/modems. Otherwise a CAT5 cable can hardwire your computer or laptop to a DSL modem. CAT5 is a little wider than telephone connectors. Then install drivers (and make sure the modem is compatible with your providers requirements, they are not all the same.)

Are you trying to install the router.
You can do it manually without the CD.
make sure that your computer is able to go online through the modem.
If your computer is able to go online through the modem
Then you need to connect the computer to the router ad the modem to the router.
open the set up page of the router and change the settings of the router according to the ISP.

I have a two wire router trying to hook up to run my laptop

You need to run from the DSL modem into the ethernet port at the very top of the 1701hg. Use your other 4 ports below to send one the computer and one to your vonage. You will no longer need to "jump" though your vontage unit. Other than connecting the power cables, you are all hooked up.

2wire wireless usb adapter installation for desktop

You are attempting to install a (brand name) 2wire wireless usb adapter, normally the SBC DSL CD is ONLY what you would use to set up your SBC DSL modem. You should have a specific 2wire CD that you put in your CD Drive when you want to install the 2wire wireless usb adapter. Can you locate this CD?

Wireless router

What is the make and model of your router?

What type of internet access do you have (DSL or cable)?

Are you connecting the computer with a cable or via wireless?

If you have verified that the cable connections are correct then I would try to power cycle next.

1. Unplug the modem, router and turn off the computer.
2. Plug the modem in and wait 5 minutes.
3. Plug the router back in.
4. Turn the computer back on.

Let me know the details for the above questions if we need to go further.
