    Apparently you have to reset it while it's on. Also, I didn't hold down the reset button long enough.



    My bad.

I have a 2wire Gateway wireless modem Model 2701hg-b. Not sure where the paperwork is. Need to know how to determine PIN. Thanks


The pin is usually on a sticker on the bottom of the unit. This is the only router that has it like that, I wish more of the MFG would do it.

That key is the 10 digit number that's off the bottom of the 2wire (the one in brackets (ie [0123456789]) but only the numbers).



If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it and give a testimonial for my response

Thanks, Joe

My wife yanked the phone line from the wall and thats when my 2 wire DSL gateway model 2701HG-B modem quit working i plugged into other parts of the house But i just keeps blinking red like its still...


Hello.

Try to unplug power on back of your modem. Let the phone line plugged in. Wait 10 seconds and plug the power back.

Wait about 1 minute and try it with your computer. This procedure will reconnect using a new IP address on your internet service provider.

It should work if you don't have a router. If you have a router attached to your modem, unplug power on both then plug your modem first and wait 1 min. Then plug back your router and wait 1 min. Try your internet connection after doing it. If you still don't have connection, try to restart your computer.

Hope this helps!

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
modem.

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

I can not find the PIN number for the router. It


Hi there... I dont get wat you mean by PIN... Is it WEP key your refering too? Well as you said it is supposedly the 10 digits on the modem.. If your unable to connect, then the possibilities are that the modems default wep key has been changed. To reset this key you will have to access the gateway thru

192.168.1.254 or gateway.2wire.net - click on wireless settings and from there scroll down and you will be able to see the buttons where it is marked as use default encryption key or use custom key passphrase. Click on use default encrpytion key , scroll down and click save settings. Now note at this point of time when you click save , whichever wireless devices which were or could connect to the modem when it was in " use custom key passphrase" cant be connected anymore. All the devices must be reconfigured to the default wep key which can be found on your modem which is a 10 digit n numbers.

2nd choice.
You access the modems gateway page to reset the whole modem to factory default
Go to the http://gateway.2wire.net/mdc and you will be prompted for password. By default its 2wire. Once you have accesses in it, scroll down till you see Troubleshooting - then you can see resets. click on it and at the bottom you will see a radio button RESET - Resets your 2wire gateway to factory default. CLick on the reset, your modems power light will change to orange led after 3 secs from your click. and the orange led will be there for ard 10-15 secs. And your modem will boot back. And now its factory default. You need to do the necessary configurations depending on your ISP.

3rd choice

Reset button behind modem
Click the red reset button behind the modem and hold for 15 secs, the modem will be restored to factory default.


Pls note : I will not hold responsibility if any mishaps happens during this operation. All the above is done on YOUR SOLE RESPONSIBILITY. Thank you.

I bought a 2wire 2701HG-B from an individual. How


You will have to login to your modem's configuration panel. To access this, you will have to use a computer which is connected to the router via an Ethernet (CAT5) cable. Once you are at such a computer, go to Start>All Programs>Accessories>Command Prompt (Or just go to Start>Run, type in: cmd
then press OK).

After Command Prompt loads, type in: ipconfig
Now press the ENTER key on your keyboard to execute the command. A list should be returned. You will want to locate the IP address associated with the, "Default Gateway." This is demonstrated in the screenshot located here.

Afterward open up your Internet browser (Internet Explorer, Firefox, Chrome, etc...) and type the IP address associated with the default gateway into the address bar. In the case of our previous example, you would type, "192.168.1.254" into the address bar (without the quotes and without adding www. or .com). Then press enter to visit the page. Your modem's configuration page should appear. You will want to click the link reading, "Run System Setup Wizard."

Afterward you might be asked to provide a password. If you don't have or know your password, try the default of blank. If that doesn't work you will have to call AT&T technical support for assistance in resetting the password.

Once you have reached the setup wizard you should be able to configure the modem to include the new registration information.

Let me know if I can assist you with anything else.

My 2Wire 2701HG-B Gateway constantly resets!


If your gateway is constantly rebooting this is a sign of hardware failure and you should speak with your ISP about a possible replacement if it is still in warranty.

Can i connect a 2wire 2701hg-b with roadrunner cable internet ? I had the 2wire dsl with at&t but recently disconnected the service


It is possible but it may not work as a router (2 wire 270). The 2wired router only has a phone port and ethernet/usb for computer connection. So if you will connect the roadrunner modem to the 2wired, you can connect it to the ethernet port of the 2wire, but the 2 wire will not function as a router any more. It will work just like a wireless bridge. This one setup that you can.
