To get this right you must make sure that the 2wire will be configured to be your gateway which means that the 2wire itself will be connected to the internet then set the linksys to DHCP mode because if you dont it will give you a router behind router error , make sure that the 2wire is properly authenticated and connected to the internet to make sure access the gui by typing gateway.2wire.net on your browser and run system set up wizard

Cannot get 2wire router to connect to wet610n adapters. Directv (who sent me this) cannot help. I need to know what to do to fix this issue. Keep getting error messages from 102 to 109,


Make sure wet610n adapters have the same wireless settings with your 2 wire modem and the wireless link status of the bridge shows connected. That's how wet610n communicate with wireless routers/modem. If wireless settings do not match they will talk with each other wirelessly.

If the Internet light is off then there is a problem with the phone line to the ADSL modem or the modem is faulty or there is a problem at the telephome exchange.
Disconnect the phone cable at the ADSL modem and connect a phone handset to this cable - check for a dial tone and that you can dial out.
If you don't get a dial tone, use a different or new phone cable.
If the phone line is OK then : -
Ring your ISP to get them to test your connection to your ADSL

Can I use AT&T 2WIRE 2701HG-B DSL to ant ISP?


look if u wish to go for verizon service,,they will provide u with a wireless modem as well,,but if u tell them that u hav a modem then they might configure this modem only,,both ATT and verizon are DSL service providers with PPPoE connections.the only thing u need is the username and passwrd from verizon which u have to setup on the first page of the 2wire setup page,,both the connections are dhcp based.so no other connection settings change required.But when u talk with verizon make sure u tell them of the 2wire modem

Moreover verizon has wireless broadband service which is actually a express card tat u have to put into your computer and u can go online anywhere u go within ur country{it works like a mobile phone}

best of luck,,keep me posted

2wire gateway signal range problems


1. Put the router in the highest location possible in the house.
2. Make sure the gateway is installed in the center of the house rather than in a corner of house, so it will cover area on all sides.
3. Make Sure you dont have any devices that may interfere with the signal eg. cordless phone , close to the gateway.
4. Use channel 3 or 7.

Gamin adapter set up, plz help


Hi Shawn. Does yout PS2 connect when it is downstairs on the wireless? Reason I ask is wifi routers tend to transmit horizontally, and are very weak in vertical transmittions.
If you are connecting while you are own stairs, we can assume the WEP is not an issue.

WEP setting vary on different adapters. Some allow your to use 5 digits for your wep code, others require the full 10 digits. If you are using just 5, say 12345, try putting a 3 infront of each digit, i.e. 3132333435. If you are using all 10, on bought the adapters, this shouldn't be a issue.
Of course, if you can connect to while downstaris, this issue it mute.
You can also try changing channels. Channel 1 has more range than channel 8.
The last guess is that yoour router has less range than the Dlink.

See if any of those suggestions help, and let us know.

Good luck.

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.

Hooking up my gaming router


There is a 90 % possibility that the wireless settings on the gaming adapter and the router are not the same. Try to reconfigure this again. Remember that the gaming adapter's wireless settings needs to synchronize with that of the router to make the gaming adpater works. Call netgear and verify the settings on your wireless connection and reverify the settings you have on the adapter. For manual instructions, see user guide at www.linksys.com/download
