Find the reset button on the router and hold it in for about 30 seconds. this should restore the router to default settings including the password. if it asks for password after that it should be
either username = 2wire
password = blank

or
username=blank
password = wireless

if this was helpfull please mark this thread as FixYa

You can reset the password by removing the cmos battery from the motherboard for about 5 seconds, replace & reboot. Hope this helps.

drain the power of BiOS,from the back up battery inside your LAPTOP!
By disconnecting the battery(inside) and wait for a couple of minutes, BiOS will erase the PASSWORD!

2wire password


If it is yours then the network password will be printed on the side of the wireless modem/router. If it is your neighbors then your outta luck unless they give you the password.

Wireless feature doesn't work.


I think the 2wire router has a separate password setup to configure the wireless access. Go to your ISP provider's website and search Internet Help & Support/ Modems and see if there are not instructions to guide you. If you can't find anything, perhaps this link will lead you in the right direction...

I hope this information allows you to resolve this issue. If you need further assistance, please post back with a comment to this thread.

I cannot get my wireless ethernet client to coonect with my 2 wire gateway router


Need more details.
Generally, first you need to turn on the wireless option in the gateway. Go to \\home or \home (depending on browser). Then go the Network option (no the broadband option), click of wireless settings, and make sure you have this enabled. That should atleast give you the basics. Anything further, please see the 2wire website and get the manual.
