2Wire 1000SW Hardware Reset

Ok I set this up along time ago as an AP point. I have changes the network dynamics since (several times). I need to do a hardware reset on this since it looks like the IP is 192.168.1.255 netmask is unknown.

I can hit it on my wifi but if memory servers me I shut down the DHCP to prevent it from broadcasting on the LAN.

I let the network DHCP do the job and you can not run 2 address servers on one lan (with out some major networking that I never need).

Anyway I have taked this thing completly apart and the only thing I see that might have somthing to do with reset is the edge on th board labled j2.

There is no visable reset switch on the board or accessible from out side the shell.

So anyone had luck resetting a 1000SW? if I could get to the IP i am not sure what the password is about 30 possibilities for its install date.

So a factory reset is in order.

Thanks

SOURCE: I am trying to add

you will have to port forward and setup static ip address see below.

To open the set up page of the router of the router , one of your computer should be able to go online through the router.
It could be a wired computer or wireless computer.
If it is a wireless computer then make sure that the computer is connected to your own wireless network.
Do not change any wireless settings on the router using a wireless computer.
OK ! Now you have a computer online through the router and you want to open the set up page of the router.

First step is check the IP address of the computer.
Check the IP address and the Default gateway on the computer.

For Windows XP

START ==> RUN ==> type in cmd in the RUN box==> click OK or Hit ENTER . You will see a black window that is a command prompt . In the black window type in " ipconfig " ==> and Hit ENTER on your key board .

For Windows Vista and Windows 7

click on START ==> type in cmd in the start search box ==> enter ==> you will see the black window. Type in " ipconfig "you will see a lot of information. Try to find out the local area connection IPv4 address .

Note down the Default gateway number.

For MAC OS

Click APPLE icon in the right top corner of the computer. Go to System Preferences ==> go to Network ==> you will find the option Built in Ethernet or Airport whichever is connected. If you go to that you will find the Ip address and router Address.

The default gateway is the IP address of your router.

This IP address of the router will be used to open the set up page of the router

Now you got the IP address of the router.Open the Internet Browser ( Internet Explorer, Firefox, Safari )

In the Address bar of the browser Type the IP address of the router.

Do not type http:// or www just type in the IP address only.

It will ask you for the user name and the password of the router.

This is the User name and the password of the router and NOT the wireless password. On a wireless router, there are 2 passwords. One is to access the router and the other one is for the wireless network.

For most of the routers the default password will be " admin " . for some routers the default password is " password ". For Linksys router the default password is admin and no user name.

Hello when i turn on my access point d-link dwl 2100 ap i couldn't access to it by the ip i reset it several times but nothing changes even by the default ip of it 192.168.0.50 so plz help me


In order to get to the web server, you plug an ethernet cable between your computer and the AP. Then, did you miss the instructions that you have to be in the same subnet? Right click on your LAN card (Network) Properties TCP/IP Properties and set the address to something temporary like use 192.168.0.5 or anything but 1 or 50 and the subnet mask to 255.255.255.0

Now when you open up IE, just key in 192.168.0.50 and it will bring up the login box.

I'm trying to connect the ecb3500 as an AP Router to get wireless access from my cable modem. THe old LinkSys worked fine, although it has low power, but the ecb is unable to connect (status of connection...


ECB3500 Can I downgrade firmware safely with this product?Yes. I cannot get into the device from my computer. What is the basic setting check?

- Make sure you are directly connected to the unit.
- Do not have a switch or router in between and do not connect wirelessly.  
- Make sure your power injector/adapter is on, power is going to the unit, and the "network" side is going to your computer.  
- Make sure your computer is set to a static IP address of 192.168.1.10.
- Type in 192.168.1.1 using Internet Explorer.

How to change the IP Address?

The default IP address is 192.168.1.1. This IP address is typically in conflict with many routers out in the market. You will need to change the IP address manually to an IP address that is different but part of the same network. This means if your router IP address is 192.168.1.1, you should change the device to 192.168.1.2, for example. We recommend you change the IP address before other settings. You change your IP address in the "LAN" section in the GUI.

How do I reset the device?

Locate the reset button next to the CAT5 (RJ45) connection. Press and hold the reset button for 10 seconds and then let go. You should see your 10/100 LAN connection at your computer go away and then come back. That will confirm a reset has occurred. The unit settings should all be back to default including its IP address of 192.168.1.1.

How do I set up AP WDS Repeater?

Click here for instructions.

How do I set up the device under Apple MAC OS X environment?

Click here for instructions.

I cannot connect or maintain a log in to the device.

We recommend using internet explorer with at least IE7 or higher. Make sure you have latest version of Java script.

What distance in kilometers (km) should I set the device to?

Default is 1km. If you are setting up long distance point to point links, the time it takes the radio wave to get there needs to be considered for proper handshaking (ACK response). This window should be accurate within 5 kilometers. In other words if you have a 5 kilometer link, ideally you should set it to 5km, but a setting of 1km to 10km should keep you in an acceptable window. For short distances, keep this to 1km.

What is a point-to-point link setup?One unit would need to be in AP mode while the other in CB mode. The AP should be connected directly to the routers LAN port, and the other will be in Client Bridge Mode linking back to the AP. The Client side will then provide a WIRED connection for users of the remote location. You can choose to connect this wired connection to just one PC, or to a switch, hub, or another wireless access point for multiple users at the remote location. What is a Client Bridge (CB) Mode?

A client connects to an access point. Your laptop is a client. A bridge is something that connects two "wired" networks together. A client bridge therefore is a radio that wirelessly bridges two networks. The Ethernet port of the 2610 in CB mode provides the wired connection to the remote location. This Ethernet port can directly connect to a single PC, a hub, a switch, or another router. 

What is considered a "good" signal?The signal meter is not available in AP mode. In CB mode, under connection status, a signal of -74dbm or better is a good signal. It's important to understand which direction numerically is a better signal. Dbm's are referenced to 1 milliwatt. 1mW = 0dbm. A stronger signal would be a positive number and a weak signal would be a very negative number. For example, a -50dbm signal is stronger signal than -92dbm. What is spanning tree protocol?

When there are several possible paths a packet can route to (redundant links for increased reliability for example), a loop can occur (jamming up the network). It is used to prevent these loops.

What is the default gateway?The default gateway is your router's IP address. The default gateway information is not required, but is recommended.What is the default user name and password to log into this device?

Log in name is "admin" and password is "admin" by default.

What is WDS Mode?Stands for Wireless Distribution System. Allows access points to link together and provide repeating. Note however, this repeating comes at a cost of reduced bandwidth. Bandwidth will be reduced by 30-40%, and it is recommended that NO multiple repeating hops be done for this reason. Which antenna connector is the primary antenna?The one closer to the power jack.

When you get a 'cant connect to configuration server', dont worry about it, thats 2wire's configuration server. If you have a 1000sw, then you've been a customer for a long time and have been registered for years and dont need the configuration server. Both you and the 2wire have been configured for years. The 2wire is trying to reach the configuration server because you set it up again, im thinking you moved, changed phone lines, or changed service.

The 2wire configuration server is to set people's 2wire's up for the first time only, and even then it doesnt matter unless you call technical support, and then they can still help you by getting the serial number off the device when that happens years later.

I have a 2wire HG-B modem/router and I want to extend my wireless network by using a Hawking HWRN1A router. How do I configure my 2wire with my Hawking router, so it can work?


this hint is only possible if your hawking can be used a an access poit. if yes then try try the following:

connect you adsl line into your modem/router,

connect the lan cable of your modem into a switch

connect both your PC and Hawking into the switch

have your modem/router provide DHCP and DNS

configure your PC to gte its ip address and DNS dynamically

configure your hawking access point to also get its dns and dhcp dynamically (do this by getting into the hawking http page configuration, or telnet if you are good with commands)

now set a wireless lan with WPA or higher through your hawking.

there you have it.

Lost Ethernet and Wireless Connections in Modem


I've not used one of these 2wire boxes before, but I believe the default router's address is 192.168.0.1. Try this instead of gateway.2wire.net to see if you can gain access to the router. This is just the starting point, but see if it works.

Here's a link to, what I believe is, the router's manual.

Before you rate this please let me try to help some more. This could be a multi step process...

Can't connect one laptop


Ok this is a simple, but difficult fix at times. I need to know if the other laptop is used in and or outside of your home? In addition I need to know if you have security like a WEP or WPA setup? Do you have a home network setup using this router/modem? I may have other questions, but these I need to know in order to give you an exact answer!

Temporary connection loss


The issue is now resolved. I found the solution by trawling through the 2wire troubleshooting website articles...
Here's how I fixed mine:
1) open the Management and Diagnostic Console by entering 192.168.1.254/mdc in the address line in your web browser.
2) click on 'Configure' under the heading 'Local Network' on the left column.
3) change the 'set DHCP lease time' to 999hours (instead of 24hours) - this stops the router from resetting itself every day.
4) click on 'wireless' under 'Local Network' in the left column again.
5) change the 'power setting' to 10 - ie maximum - this boosts the wireless signal, which means it's less likely to be dropped.

& that did the trick. Been working continuously now for the last month and a half! :))
